APS DCB Series Programmable Bi-directional DC Supply and Load


Bi-directional DC Power Supplies

The Two Quadrant Regenerative Source and Sink DCB Series power supplies from Adaptive Power Systems are powerful yet cost effective Battery test solutions. Designed using state-of-the-art Digital Signal Processing, these units combine a DC power supply with a regenerative electronic DC load into a single unit. All DCB Series models support an auto-ranging constant power V-I output profile that offers both higher voltage and high current from a single unit.

 

Available in four power levels of 5kW, 10kW, 15kW and 30kW, there are eight voltage range models up to 2000Vdc and max. current of 360Adc per 3U chassis or 1000Adc per 4U chassis . Available with either 208~480Vac (HP) or  380~480Vac (-4) three phase AC input. Master/ Slave mode for series or parallel operation available for higher voltage and or power requirements.
