200-W programmable DC power supplies carry offer application flexibility benefits

August 24, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
TDK Corporation has extended the company’s TDK-Lambda Z+ Series of programmable DC power supplies with the addition of the lower power Z+200 range.

Offering the same flexibility and superior features as the higher power Z+400 range, these 200 W units address the need for high quality bench-top power supplies for the R&D environment, as well as being ideally suited for ATE and OEM rack mounted or integrated applications such as Test & Measurement, Semiconductor Burn-in, Component Test, Laser Diode, Heater Supplies, RF Amplifiers and Electromagnets.

Models in the 200W Z+ Series are available with output voltages up to 100 Vdc and output currents up to 20 A, operate in constant current and constant voltage modes and accept wide range 85 to 265 Vac input. Higher power systems can be achieved by connecting up to six identical units in parallel with active current sharing. To increase the output voltage or to provide a bipolar output, up to two units may be connected in series.

CE marked in accordance with the Low Voltage Directive, the Z+200 conducted and radiated EMI conforms to EN55022-B, FCC part-15-B, VCCI-B. Safety approvals include UL/EN/IEC61010-1. All models carry a five year warranty.
