Built-in Automotive Test Functions, Higher Voltages, and Remote Control Software
YORBA LINDA, CA, May 29, 2014 -- B&K Precision today announced the expansion of its 9115 Series with the addition of two new multi-range programmable DC power supplies, models 9115-AT and 9116. Like the 9115, the new models deliver full output power of 1200 W in any combination of voltage and current within the rated limits and continue to offer the same great features, but with a few notable differences. The 9115-AT provides unique built-in automotive test functions and the 9116 offers a higher voltage range up to 150 V, making these new models suitable for automotive as well as a variety of benchtop or ATE system applications.
The 9115-AT’s special built-in automotive test functions can simulate common test conditions to ensure reliability of electrical and electronic devices installed in automobiles. Compliant to automotive standards DIN 40839 and ISO 16750-2, these power test waveforms include: motor startup simulation, short voltage drop, reset behavior voltage drop, and engine start routine with cranking.
Front panel features from the 9115 carry over to the 9115-AT and 9116, which include a high resolution VFD display, independent voltage and current control knobs, cursors, and a numerical keypad for direct data entry. Both new models also provide internal memory storage to save and recall up to 100 different instrument settings, sequence (list mode) programming, and configurable overvoltage and overpower protection limits. On the rear are standard USBTMC-compliant USB, RS-232, GPIB, and RS-485 interfaces supporting SCPI commands.
For easy programming and remote control, the 9115 Series now offers remote control software for front panel emulation, generation and execution of test sequences, and logging measurements via a PC. The application software can also be integrated with NI’s Data Dashboard for LabVIEW app (available for Android or iOS), allowing users to create custom dashboards on smartphones and tablets for additional monitoring functions.
Available immediately, B&K Precision's 9115-AT and 9116 multi-range programmable DC power supplies are listed at a price of $2,345 and $1,995 respectively.
