Single Output DC Power Supply with high Resolution

Siglent SPD1168X01 June 2018 - SIGLENT Technologies released a new 16 V/8 A DC power supply, the SPD1168X. The programmable power supply features a set-point resolution of up to 1mV / 1mA and excellent setting and readback accuracy. Users can generate even very small voltage or current changes, while maintaining a well-regulated DC output across varying loads.

The SPD1168X’s ripple and noise is a low ≤ 350uVrms / 3mVpp,providing users with a cleaner power supply test environment. The fast transient response time of the SPD1168X programmable DC power supply is less than 50μs, thus, allowing the output voltage to quickly return to the set value when the DUT load undergoes a sudden change.

The SPD1168X also includes a four-wire compensation (Sense) function. The four-wire Sense mode compensates for potential voltage drops at the load due to the power supply leads causing an IR drop at higher currents. Using remote sensing, the SPD1168X can compensate for up to a 1 Volt loss in the output leads. Thus ensuring that the voltage supplied to the DUT is the same voltage that the power supply is set to. For added safety, if the compensation exceeds 1V, the power supply will automatically shut off its output so as to more intelligently protect the user’s device under test.

With the SPD1168X’s clean front-panel layout and compact body size, it requires minimal test bench space. And it is light enough to grab and go.
