B&K Precision Adds New Power Supply to Dual Range Offerings

Complements Existing Model with Higher Current Ranges and Power up to 350 W

YORBA LINDA, CA, Aug 15, 2012 -- B&K Precision today announced the addition of the model 1747--its latest dual range DC power source. Delivering up to 350 W of power with constant voltage (CV) and constant current (CC) modes, model 1747 can output either higher voltage at a lower current range (0-60V, 5A), or higher current at a lower voltage range (0-35V, 10A). This new DC power supply is suitable for a wide variety of uses in electronics manufacturing, service and repair, and engineering labs.

The design of dual range power supplies gives users operational flexibility within voltage and current ranges depending on their application needs. This helps save both bench space and cost by eliminating the need for multiple power supplies on the bench or the purchasing of more power than necessary.

Providing nearly three times more power than its close relative--the model 1737--the 1747 offers a sufficient increase in current range, yet still maintains the excellent regulation and low ripple characteristics available in the 1737. Both voltage and current are adjustable with coarse and fine control knobs, while two bright 4-digit LED displays show the voltage and current.

Other features include automatic recall of the supply's last settings on power up, overload and reverse polarity protection, and the addition of a convenient output On/Off button. An RS-232 interface on the rear enables remote controlled of the instrument via PC using software or remote commands. Application software can be downloaded from B&K Precision's website.

Available immediately, B&K Precision's model 1747, dual range DC power supply is lists at $879.
