  • Max power: 5kW
  • Monitoring controlling web server

Constant Power Output for 3 Times Multi-range (V&I) Operation

PRKT series is DC power supply equipped with a turbo function, enabling a wide range of voltage/current three times higher than previous DC power supplies with approximately the same rated output power.

The PRKT series all allows flexible voltage and current output within its rated power, resulting user not to require to search for power supply with unnecessary wider rated voltage and current. Thus single PRKT unit can be used for much wider user application.

Not only its a wide range of output, but the general performance of the power supply is pursued to achieve overwhelming quality, providing power factor correction circuit with 0.99 power factor, color display panel having excellent visibility, and adoption of speedy and excellent precision rotary encoder.

* Dedicated cable for master-slave connection is available. We offer the set of a parallel control cable and a cable with attached shared terminal. refer to "Master/Slave control cable" in the datasheet below.

  • Expandable to a total of four MASTER and SLAVE units.
  • During MASTER/SLAVE connections, values of output voltage/current for the overall unit are displayed on the output voltage/current meter of the MASTER. (Individual output values are not displayed on the output voltage/current meter of each SLAVE.)

Note: Make sure to use the same length of all the cables to connect to each load from the main unit.

Preset Memory Function

With the preset memory function, the preset values are automatically saved when turning power off. Furthermore, up to three different voltage, current, and power settings are also memorized respectively.

Sequence Function

In terms of programmable sequence functions of step time, step amplitude, ramp, CV/CC mode, sequence end setting, step jump, and jump count, the sequence control makes such parameter operations much easier by only using the front panel operation.

As this option enables to generate optional waveforms, you can use a great variety of applications including testing, evaluation, and verification.

The product is also provided with the attached software to allow a series of configuration using PC. Thus, you can use the product with different applications depending on the specification.

CV/CC Priority Setting Function

CV (constant voltage) priority/CC (constant current) priority modes can be selected and set. As is the case with diodes, a load tends to suddenly change the resistance at certain points. When the device is started in CV mode, the current will be momentary overshot.

Using the PRKT series, the occurrence of overshoot can be suppressed by selecting CC priority mode. The function can reduce the risk of damaging expensive loads such as high-power laser diodes.

CV priority mode

CV priority mode

CC priority mode

Always starts in CC

* Overshoot is less likely to occur as the CC value is set to the lowest in the range where the CC state can keep not by releasing the voltage setting even in the CC priority mode.

Sequence Setting Input/Output and Operation Log Output via Front USB Terminal

By inserting USB memory into the front panel USB port, you can readily perform not only reading the sequence settings arbitrarily created but also collecting operating logs.

Software Image

The attached software can read the log file output of the main unit.

The following action logs can be displayed.
  • Elapsed time
  • CC/CV mode
  • Output value (voltage, current, power)
  • Status
  • Error

Two-mode Lock Function

The locking is selectable from two setting modes: one is "Full LOCK" to lock all front panel operation, and the other is "Normal LOCK" to lock everything except ON/OFF switch.

The function is so user-friendly that the "Full LOCK" mode is provided to ensure the prevention of erroneous operation, and the "Normal LOCK" function facilitates the emergency stop while preventing erroneous operation.

Emergency stop operation using the POWER ON or OFF switch is possible in either mode.

Full LOCK

All switches except for LOCK release, the touch panel, and encoder are locked. It is further effective to prevent the erroneous stop during the remote control and to completely avoid erroneous operation.

Full LOCK function

Normal LOCK

Switches other than ON/OFF, the touch panel, and encoder are locked. It is further effective to prevent the erroneous changes of output values during the local control and to facilitate emergency stops.

Normal LOCK function

Internal Resistance Variation Function (during CV mode)

A value set to the causes a voltage drop when the load current flows. Batteries, photovoltaic cells, and fuel cells can be simulated. (The setting range of the internal resistance value is from 0 Ω to the rated voltage/rated current.)

Sink Current Suppression

When supplying power to loads with capacities like batteries and capacitors, 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.

Sink Current

Note: Reverse current cannot be controlled and stabilized. Connect a dummy resistor or reverse current prevention diode when load of the reverse voltage is equal to or higher than the rated voltage (inductive loads, regenerative motors, etc.).

Status output

The status output is provided by open collector. It has a floating common terminal which is used for each status output.
