Magna-Power Electronics Releases New High Accuracy Programmable DC Power Supply Generation

Press Release, March 19, 2012


Magna-Power Electronics, a leader in high power programmable DC power supplies, has released their next generation product line featuring major performance upgrades. The new generation, spanning every product model from 2 kW to 2000 kW+, addresses a wide-range of new demanding application requirements. Key new features introduced are:

  • High Accuracy Programming and Monitoring: Enhancements to the product controls and calibration procedures enabled an over five-fold improvement in accuracy. Accuracy specifications are now ±0.075% of full-scale voltage/current programming and ±0.2% of full-scale voltage/current monitoring. Higher accuracy enables measurements to be taken directly from Magna-Power Electronics power supplies, eliminating the need for external power meters and lowering overall system costs and complexity. All power supplies still maintain ease of front panel calibration.
  • Electronic Output Bleeder Stage: Standard output bleeder resistance was replaced with near constant power electronic loading. The new output stage enables faster fall times, and improved performance under light loading without affecting overall efficiency. (XR/TS/MS Series only)
  • Integrated EMI Filter: Formerly an option, integrated EMI filters now come standard on the entire product line, enabling improved EMI/EMC performance. All products ship with CE conformity.

In addition, new low voltage high current models along with a 2000 Vdc+ High Output Isolation Option (+ISO) were also introduced on the TS Series and MS Series. All products series numbers are incremented to reflect the new generation: XR Series III (2 kW to 8 kW), TS Series IV (5 kW to 45 kW), MS Series IV (30 kW to 75 kW), and MT Series VI (100 kW to 2000 kW+).

The new generation is now available and the built-to-order lead-times are as short as 2 weeks, consistent with Magna-Power Electronics newly reduced delivery schedules. All products are designed and manufactured in the Flemington, NJ USA.
