VOL series

Compact High power
CVCC programmable regulated DC power supply

  • Voltage: 6V to 1.5kV
  • Current: 1.2A to 1000A
  • Power: 750W to 15kW
  • PFC circuit and universal input
  • CE marking (For some models)

VOL series is no longer available as we have stopped the production and sales this model in January 2021. Meanwhile, we support. PVCE series is available as the successor model, and more information on the series can be found here.

PVCE series

The new standard model of rack mountable DC power supply

VOL series are the new standard model of rack mountable DC power supplies that are designed on attention to "Cost performance", "Wide variety" and "High reliability". Offering original low noise switching method and wide lineups of 6 V to 650 V/600 W to 15 kW total of 157 models to meet various applications.

Also, they are to achieve high reliability as a result of our high voltage power supply technology built up over 30 years. In addition, by carefully selecting the features and pursue the cost down, we could achieve power supplies which keeps same low noise, high stability, and high reliability, but more reasonable price. VOL series support strongly R & D as power supplies that are to be used for various applications and user friendly. (Some models correspond to CE.)

Features and Benefits

  • Compact and high power Max 15 kW
  • Ideal for research and development with low noise switching method.
  • Power Factor Correction (PFC) circuit and universal input wound not select the place of operation.
  • Various operations by connecting multiple power supplies, such as master/slave, is possible.
  • VOL adopts large four-digit monitor display for both voltage and current, which contributes to precise monitoring with better recognition.
  • Operability and safety are improved with new features of key-lock function and acceleration rotary encoder, that increment will vary by speed of rotation.

Functions

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 the output voltage of slave local mode can be output simultaneously by turning on the master unit.

Options

-LMi: Multi-digital interface *

Digital control by LAN (Ethernet), USB (USBTMC) and RS-485 (Multidrop) is available. (These simultaneous use is impossible.)

This option includes -L(SCPI) option, and attaches IVI driver corresponding to SCPI command. It makes it easy for control program development with various programming languages such as LabView, VisualBasic and C# etc.

The model with this option does not have CE marking.
-LMiMulti-digital interface

-LUs1: USB Interface Board *

The models with USB interface integrate it with -LMi option model. But the conventional -LUs1 option models continue the production, too. Please refer to our sales office for details.

-L(SCPI): SCPI command

Enable control via SCPI command.

-LFf: Cutting-off output when the cooling fan has gone wrong Coming soon

When the internal cooling fan has gone wrong, VOL will output status signal and cut off output power only for 3 U models.

The model with these options does not have CE marking.

-L(Mc0.5), -L(Mc0.15): Communication cable length change

Change length of CO-M cable to 0.5-meter and 0.15-meter.

(Select one of two type above.)

-L(400V), -L(480V), -L(3P), -L(1P): Changing input voltage and phase

The model with these options does not have CE marking.

-LGob: Optical Interface Board *

  • -LGob: OPtical interface board + optical cable 2 m
  • -LGob(Fc5): OPtical interface board + optical cable 5 m
  • -LGob(Fc10): OPtical interface board + optical cable 10 m
  • -LGob(Fc20): OPtical interface board + optical cable 20 m
  • -LGob(Fc40): OPtical interface board + optical cable 40 m

Optical communication offers insulation control. It is to prevent malfunction such as transient phenomenon by surge, lightning induction, and exogenous noise.

Select the -LGob option when using power supply following environmental condition.
  • Factories which has a lot of noise
    (Example: in case of using power supplies and loads near motors and coils.
  • Using with high voltage floating (more than 250 V)
  • The installation distance between power supply and controller (PC or PLC) produced by Matsusada Precision.
-LGob Optical Interface Board
* These options cannot be selected together. Need to be selected either one. For more information on the digital interface, refer to CO series.

Operations

Operation example

VOL series of same model number can be connected in series or parallel to increase output voltage or current. In that case, local control or the control in the digital master slave is recommended.
Because the common of the outside input/output control connector (TB1) is connected to the negative output, please do not connect common more than two.

Series Operation

Total output voltage is to be up to 250 V. Therefore, for models with output voltage of over 250 V, series operation cannot be conducted. Output current is to be the smallest current of those.

Series Operation

Parallel operation

Please keep all the settings of voltage the same. The output current will be the summation of each current. Please keep OVP level of power supply maximum to prevent any damage.

Parallel Operation

Split Operation

+output and –output are available.
