Low noise, multiple functions, and digital communication are highlights of supply which can be used from R&D to a variety of applications. All this convenience in a small DC power supply.

RK series is a small, programmable desktop 400 Watt, 800 Watt, 1200 Watt high output power supply.
Our low noise switching method include several features such as Delay trigger, Memory function, and Two-mode lock function to prevent operator mistake. All this enables the user to operate the supply for a wide range of applications. Moreover, the sequence function enables the user to control the supply without a laptop.

The digital interface is also standard, with LAN, USB, RS-232C, RS-485, or GPIB control, allowing the operator to use the system in many different production environments.*

Only for some models with option are applied to CE.

  • * Adaptors or options will be needed additionally.

Features and Benefits

  • Compact and high power 400 W, 800 W, 1200 W
  • Ideal for research and development with low noise switching method.
  • PFC circuit and universal input would not select the place of operation.
  • Various operations by connecting multiple power supplies, such as master/slave, is possible.
  • The sink current suppression is used to reduce the reverse current flowing from the load to the unit in order to prevent a voltage drop on the load as the output is OFF or the set voltage is lowered.
  • Operability and safety are improved with new features of Two-mode lock function and acceleration rotary encoder, which accelerate the output ramp up with the speed of rotating the encoder.

Sink Current Suppression

RK series featured function to sink current, and enable to decrease the voltage quickly when turning off the output or when control the voltage down, which increase the safety of operation. In case that continuous aging test in short interval, quick voltage fall time increase the efficiency of process. On the contrary by using sink current prevention function, it is possible to prevent voltage drop on the load by decreasing the current flow from load to power supply when turning off the power supply or when decrease the output voltage.

Note: It is not possible to stabilize the output by controlling back current. In case of load which has inverse voltage or over rated voltage, such as inductive load or regenerative motor, protect the power supply by adding dummy resister or diode to prevent back current.

Sink Current/Sink Current Prevention Function

Multi Setting Function

Function to memorize three different voltage and current settings in addition to standard preset function. No need to adjust the output when different setting, and convenient function for production inspection process or testing which require frequent data taking.

Multi Setting Function Multi Setting Function

Two Mode Lock Function

Function to select two different lock functions for two different purpose. "Full Lock" locks all the functions on front panel, and "Normal Lock" locks all the functions except for ON/OFF. "Full Lock" mode shall be good in case mis-operation have to be completely avoided, and "Normal Lock" mode shall be good in case to avoid mis-operation but secure the way for emergency stop of power supply. You can select the best mode according to your level of "Security".

(Each modes, emergency stop is possible with Power Switch.)

Full LOCK

Lock all the function other than reset lock mode, and effective for purpose to avoid mis-operation when controlled

Two Mode Lock Function
Normal LOCK

Lock voltage and current setting dial, and effective for purpose to avoid changing output setting by mistake or when easy emergency stop is required.

Normal LOCK

Delay Trigger Function

Delay Trigger Function

* t1 to t 8 can be set in the range 0.0 s to 99.9 s.

This function enables power supply to set to delay the output trigger timing. Either in case of single unit of RK series power supply or in case of multiple power supplies in Master/Slave connection *1, it is possible to use this feature among multiple DC power supplies *2 having individually different output voltage/current setting *3

  1. Can be connected up to 16 pieces.
  2. R4K-36 series, R4K-80 series, RK-80 series, RKT series, TB series and REK series. Detail datasheet for each model is available. Please contact nearby sales office.
  3. Only for slave-local. In case of slave remote control, exact same model of power supply need to be used. Also, in case of slave-local, each output voltage and current can be set individually. In case of slave-remote, output voltage and current can be set with one-control function which each slave unit follows the master unit setting.

Dual Tracking, Multiple Outputs

Dual tracking control, which enables both positive and negative outputs simultaneously in master slave operation, is possible. Multi outputs and various versatile operations are also possible by combining above dual tracking control and slave local mode. Positive and negative output (+V, -V) of dual tracking control and set output voltage of slave local mode can be output simultaneously by turning on the master unit.

Functions

New useful functions

In addition to standard functions, these features offer many different usage and use in wide variety of applications.

Pulse/Ramp sequence, Master follow function (-LDe option)

above output control, between A to D is available.

A. Pulse Sequence

Using the stored voltage and current setting in each memory of a, b and c and multi set function, sequence operation is possible. The setting of repetition to say nothing of a continuous driving can be set. Various different operations, such as repetition of memory a and b or b ,c and off, are possible by setting the set time of memory a, b, c, and/or off to be 0.0. Thus, it makes this model suitable for evaluation test or other applications.

A. Pulse Sequence

ta,tb,tc and toff can be set with range 1.0 s to 99.9 h respectively.

B. Ramp

This function controls the ramping up and down the voltage and current to the set value (or from set voltage and current value to 0V/0A). It is convenient to increase (decrease) the voltage and current value slowly.

Note: The Ramp sequence can be selected from [both set voltage and current], [only set voltage], and [only set current].

B. Ramp

t1 and t2 can be set with range 0 to 999 s respectively.

C. Combination of Pulse and Ramp Sequence

Features of pulse sequence operation and ramp sequence operation can be combined for more convenient operation. In addition, by adding multi set function, sequence operation can be operated using stored voltage and current settings in each memory. The setting of repetition to say nothing of a continuous driving can be set. For example it is possible to slowly ramp up and down the voltage and current to the three different settings, and so, it is useful on various scenes.

C. Combination of Pulse and Ramp Sequence

t1, t2, t3 and t4 can be set with range 0 to 999 s respectively.
ta, tb, tc and toff can be set with range 0.0 s,1.0 s to 99.9 h respectively.

D. Master follow

When the pulse sequence operation and the ramp work master-slave, the output signal to the slave unit is transmitted. The slave unit can be output in an output status different from the master unit.

D. Master follow

Note: The operation accuracy of the timer when sequencing is 0.5%. Be careful when you use it by the long-term running operation.
