Features

Benefits

0.02% voltage programming and readback accuracy with remote sensing  Ensures the desired voltage is accurately applied to the load.
Clean output power, <1mVRMS noise Minimizes any disturbance to the load.
0.05% current measurement accuracy and 10nA resolution Allows measuring small load currents with confidence.
Can capture load changes that occur at intervals as short as 140μs  Allows monitoring load currents easily in all of a portable, battery-operated device’s operating modes so designers can determine the device’s total power consumption.
High resolution TFT display and soft-key/icon-based user interface Simplifies power supply setup and operation.
Built-in graphing capabilities Simplifies analyzing trends or displaying voltage or current waveforms.
Programmable rise and fall times Eliminates voltage overshoot and undershoot transients that could damage the device under test.
Programmable output sequences  Reduces test times on the bench and in rack-based production test systems.
Sinks up to 0.45A   Allows discharging voltage quickly.
Built-in web page  Supports automated control, monitoring, and data logging.
