Genesys™ Full-Rack (GEN-1U) series

DC Programmable Power Supplies

The Genesys™ Full-Rack (GEN-1U) series of DC Programmable Power Supplies provides high power density (up to 780W/1560W) with a complete set of user-friendly interfaces within a 1U full-rack profile. It offers Output voltages from 6V (@ 100A/200A) to 600V (@ 1.3A/2.6A) and a wide-range AC Input (85-265VAC, 47/63Hz) with Active Power-Factor Correction (0.99 @ rated load).

These units can operate in either Constant-Current (CC) or Constant-Voltage (CV) mode with a user-friendly front panel interface (continuous encoders for FINE and COARSE adjustment and four-digit LED Voltage and Current meters) and provide safety features such as Safe/Auto Re-Start, Last Setting Memory and built-in protective functions (OVP, UVL, Current FOLDback, OTP and AC Low-Line).

Multiple remote programming/monitor/control methods are available including the built-in J1 Remote Analog and the RS232/RS485 Multi-Drop Remote Digital Interface (where up to 31 units may be controlled). Other Optional Remote Digital Interfaces (LAN, IEEE and USB) and Isolated Analog (5V/10V and 4-20mA) Interfaces are optional and factory installed (one per power supply). Instrument Software Drivers (NI LabView and NI LabWindows) are also available.

Parallel operation

Genesys power supplies of the same output voltage and current rating can be paralleled in master-slave configuration with automatic current sharing to increase power available.

Control via the serial communication port

The following parameters can be programmed via the serial communication port:

  1. Output voltage setting
  2. Output current setting
  3. Output voltage measurement
  4. Output on/off control
  5. Output current measurement
  6. Foldback protection setting
  7. Over-voltage protection setting and readback
  8. Under-Voltage limit setting and readback
  9. Power-supply start up mode (last setting or safe mode)
