Magna-Power Electronics Announces Dual Polarity Tracking Power Supplies up to 900 kW

Press Release, November 18, 2008


Magna-Power Electronics dual output tracking power supplies combine the best of DC power processing with multiprocessor embedded control to deliver dual polarity power systems. Available in systems ranging from 6.6 kW to 900 kW with voltage ratings as high as +/- 3000 Vdc. These tracking power supplies are current fed and are more tolerant to abusive loads than conventional switching power supplies. A combination of high and medium frequency power processing technologies improves response, shrinks package size, and reduces cost.

These high powered dual polarity systems are specifically targeted to ground systems operation and testing for both automotive and aircraft systems. The power supplies feature three output connections: positive output (+Vo), negative output (-Vo), and a common (ground). All tracking power supplies feature over-voltage protection (OVP) and over-current protection (OCP) as standard. These supplies are already being used around the world with applications such as:

  • Brushless DC motor testing
  • Aircraft ground support systems
  • 270 Vdc DC Bus Testing (For example +/- 270 Vdc)
  • Hybrid vehicle systems
  • Water treatment

A wide range of programmability options are available for software control: RS232, IEEE 488.2 GPIB, LXI TCP/IP Ethernet, and USB. Additionally, the systems can be programmed using external I/O isolated to earth-ground and reference signals, enabling maximum system integration.

Magna-Power Electronics tracking power supplies are available and shipping now. For more information, please visit the tracking power supply product page. Contact sales at (908) 237-2200 or [email protected]
