Features And Benefits
Highest Power Density
The Sorensen XG Series is an 850 Watt, 1U half-rack DC power supply. The XG Series is the new standard for
powerful, programmable DC power systems. Designed for test, production, laboratory, OEM and quality assurance
applications, the XG Series provides a wealth of features to ensure accuracy and greater efficiency. It puts clean,
reliable power at your disposal and delivers stable, variable output voltage and current for a broad range of
development, test and system requirements.
Comprehensive Digital and Analog Interface Options
The XG Series comes standard with USB 2.0, RS-232, RS-485, isolated and non-isolated analog interfaces to
provide a comprehensive set of options to connect to a PC or other network device. This design provides the
convenience of being able to accommodate a wide range of installation configurations. Ethernet and GPIB interfaces are available as options.
Scalable, Multi-Unit Design
XG Series power supplies can be connected in parallel or series to produce greater current or voltage output for
your applications. This scalability allows you to build rackmounted systems with the XG Series that exactly meet
your existing requirements, while allowing for future expansion.
Up to 30 XGs Series can be connected easily via an RS-485 bus to provide the ultimate flexibility in remote
programming. This eliminates the cost and complexity of requiring GPIB cards in each unit. Once connected,
multiple power supplies can be controlled via a single LAN, USB 2.0, GPIB, RS-232 or RS-485 interface. This provides
an efficient option to centrally manage each XG Series needed for your applications.
Straightforward Front Panel Controls
The XG Series is equipped with a unique push-button encoder and function selector dial to
provide a simple, uncluttered front panel. Both voltage and current can be set quickly and easily using these two
controls. Front panel access can be locked out to ensure secure remote operation. This streamlined front panel
layout results in fast, intuitive set-up and operation of the XG Series.
To guarantee long-term trouble-free performance, the XG Series was designed with reliability in mind. Softswitching
technology ensures higher mean time between failure (MTBF) by eliminating high voltage transients found
in conventional hard-switching power supplies which can cause premature failure of power components. AMETEK
engineers also rigorously tested the XG Series during the design phase using Highly Accelerated Life Testing (HALT). This rigorous test procedure combines powerful thermal and vibration technologies to stress a product beyond its rated specifications. HALT testing allows our engineers to uncover and correct design issues early in the development cycle. This care in design and comprehensive testing ensures the XG Series exceeds the reliability and quality standards of both AMETEK and our customers.
The XG is backed by a comprehensive five-year warranty, the longest in the market. Our superior design and testing techniques result in highly reliable products that will provide you with years of trouble-free performance.
