The BK169xB Series of compact 200 W DC power supplies are equipped with programming and protection features commonly found in more expensive performance instruments. Programming features include list mode for repetitive operation and 10 user-configurable voltage/current presets for quick recall. These benchtop power supplies also support adjustable voltage and current limits to protect the device under test. Operating software is included for list mode set up and logging measurement data. Any of the three models in this series can be combined for multi-unit control of up to 31 power supplies.

  • Built-in 4 digit voltage, current, and power meter.
  • List mode (timed programming): Program up to 20 steps.
  • Automatic CV/CC crossover operation (constant voltage/current).
  • Protection features: overvoltage (OVP), overcurrent (OCP), overtemperature (OTP) and key-lock function.
  • Store up to 10 voltage and current combinations for quick output.
  • Lightweight and compact.
  • Convenient control with front panel numeric keypad, rotary control knob, and a dedicated V-set/I-set button.
