Brushless DC motors are commonly used in electric vehicles. A good solid DC source is the ideal input to such a control system. Variable control of voltage and current ensure a stable testing and development environment.
Solar panels do not have linear volt/current/resistance parameters. Simulating solar panel performance can be done with Lab-Power units using built-in solar simulation function. The power supply can emulate a wide range of panels efficiently and easily: the maximum power points (MPP) can be determined for a range of voltages and currents. You define the the short circuit current and open circuit voltage curves, the Lab-Power unit does the rest.
Compared to the old transformer/rectifier solution, a modern high frequency switched mode supply from Lab-Power is the perfect answer to quality electroplating processes. High precision and output stability mean that repeatable results can be obtained every time.
Ruggedness and reliability under adverse conditions are a minimum requirement in the aerospace industry. Lab-Power units are suitable for applications in this arena.
A low output noise level is a pre-requisite in applications where semiconductors are being developed/simulated and tested. Lab-Power units have a low output ripple voltage. Over-voltage protection gives reliable insurance against damage caused by unexpected over-voltage. User programmable V and I limits also reduce the chance of accidental damage to valuable components/equipment.
Efficiency and adaptability mean that Lab-Power units find a place in the development and testing of telecommunications systems. Low output noise and ripple combined with remote/local control make these units ideal.
LED Lighting and Testing
Constant voltage power supplies are not well suited to the development and testing of LED lighting systems. LEDs work best on a constant current source and Lab-Power units provide tightly controlled levels of both current and voltage. Over-voltage protection and pre-set current limits mean that damage is less likely to occur in a test/development environment.
Brushless DC Motors
Lab-Power units have a built in V-I curve function. If an output “droop” is to be simulated, this can easily be done by telling the Lab-Power unit what volt/amp relationship should be. This was traditionally done using banks of external resistors.
There are two types of electromagnets, resistive and superconducting, they are widely used for research and development of particle accelerators for bending and focusing, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Fusion applications.
