AMREL Introduces Another Industry 1st at NI Week 2009 With the Release of the New SPS Bonafide Series of Switching Power Supplies

The 1.6kW SPS Bonafide Offers the Industry's Highest Power Density Rating in a 1U, 400Hz Package

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - August 4, 2009) - AMREL once again pushes the power envelope with the release of the new SPS Bonafide Series of Programmable Switching Power Supplies at NI Week 2009. In addition to high power density, the Bonafide offers optimized cooling for increased reliability and zero-stacking, as well as its exclusive 800Vdc and 1000Vdc capabilities.

The unique and innovative 45~440Hz interleaved 85~265V wide PFC ac input provides an extremely flexible front end. Users across the globe can power their DUT using standard ac voltages, including the military/defense/avionics sectors, which require a 400Hz ac frequency.

Need switchers for your multi-channel or system application? The Bonafide is designed with the system integrator in mind. Multi-channel systems can utilize the Bonafide's master-slave capability, controlling up to 31 units through a single PC connection. Expanding power is as easy as 1-2-3. Simply transform AMREL's similarly rated units into a higher dc power source by connecting the auto-current summing analog signals between them. Remote inhibit (shutdown) and fault output signal capabilities enable system-level protection considerations and lights-out testing preventive measures.

As the newest member of AMREL's ePower line programmable power products, the Bonafide Series offers both Basic and Premium models.

AMREL's cost-effective Bonafide Basic models provide a multitude of control methods, such as:

--  Local encoder for bench-top use
--  User selectable 0~5Vdc/10Vdc external analog programming for PLC or
    DAQ systems
--  USB, RS-232/RS-485, LabVIEW/LabWindows drivers, and standard SCPI
    Commands for ATE system integration or automated testing
    

AMREL's feature-packed Bonafide Premium models include an advanced digital platform with:

--  RS-232, USB, GPIB & Ethernet interfaces (standard drivers and SCPI
    command set included)
--  User-friendly keypad and encoder for simple operation
--  16-bit high-resolution VFD display for measurement read back
    

Additional Premium features include digital closed-case calibration, VLIST & ILIST Auto-sequencing stored in 4 profiles, 3 protection modes (OV/OC/OT), advanced fault protection (interlock control, fault output signal, programmable OVP and OCP), in-field firmware upgrades, and an extensive function menu.
