BOP 1 KW Series
Available from Kepco, Inc.
The BOP High Power are true 4-quadrant programmable voltage and current power supplies. 4-quadrant operation means that they are capable of both sourcing and sinking energy. These bipolar power supplies pass smoothly through zero to provide true ± voltage and ± current. The BOP 1 KW use switch mode technology for low dissipation. To maintain low dissipation while sinking power from an active load, the BOP High Power recuperate the energy for reuse. The key to this is a bi-directional a-c input power factor correcting (PFC) circuit, which allows transparent energy interchange without dissipative sinking. The PFC circuit lowers the line harmonic distortion of the input current while maintaining a power factor greater than 0.97. The PFC works in both generation and recuperation modes.
The BOP High Power models produce 1000 watts of d-c power bi-directionally in eight models from ±6V to ±100V.
The BOP 1 KW are controlled digitally from a front panel keypad or either of the built-in standard remote interfaces, GPIB or RS 232. The BOP 1 KW can also be remotely controlled by an analog ±10V input. This mode is selected by the keypad from the menu, or remotely, through the IEEE 488 controller.
A built-in arbitrary waveform generator allows the BOP 1 KW to produce Sine, Triangular, Positive Ramp, Negative Ramp (sawtooth) and Square waveforms directly, without an external signal generator.
