Lab power supplies can be rack mounted for test

January 19, 2017 // By Nick Flaherty
Rigol Technologies has expanded its range of 150W low cost lab power supplies for test systems.

The DP700 series has been developed for optimum ease of use when used in research, development and all laboratory applications. 

The new devices of the DP700 series have an output power of up to 150 W, excellent control behaviour, very good transient response (<50 μs) and low residual ripple. The 30V/5A DP711 has <500 μVrms / 3mVpp, and >2 mA rms while the 50V/3A DP712 has <500 μVrms / 4 mVpp,> 2 mA rms. The devices also have efficient protection against overvoltage, overload and overtemperature. In addition, a 3.5" TFT screen is installed, where all settings, measured values and waveforms can be displayed clearly (V/A/W). Both models of the DP700 series have an RS232 interface for remote control and multiple device outputs can be synchronized.

Additional features can be retrofitted individually by software option. With this, Rigol achieves the maximum flexibility to guarantee the best fit between available budget and necessary performance. This includes 1 mV & 1 mA resolution (HIRES-DP700), External Trigger IN, Internal Trigger OUT (TRIGGER-DP700) and a timer (TIMER-DP700).

For applications in automatic test systems, Rigol offers 19-inch mounting kits (RM-x-DP700) for mounting one, two or three devices next to each other.

The new models are now available all authorized Rigol distributors. Further information is available at
