TDK has launched a configurable power system that can provide up to 60kW in a 20U high 19in rack.

The GSPS TDK-Lambda Genesys+ programmable DC power system can provide 30kW, 45kW or 60kW of output power with seamless transition across constant voltage, constant current and constant power limit operating modes. The cabinets are mounted on lockable wheels to enable them to be easily repositioned around research or production facilities.

Packaged in a 19in rack, the GSPS series is aimed at test and measurement, semiconductor manufacturing, automotive component test, aerospace, high power magnets, medical imaging and industrial automation and process control applications.

The system is built from up to four of the Genesys+ GSP 15kW power supplies to provide 41 standard voltage / current combinations ranging from 0 – 10V to 0 – 600V with output currents of up to 4,500A. This makes use of TDK-Lambda’s patented advanced parallel system provides dynamic load response and ripple and noise characteristics comparable with that of a single power supply.

There is a three-phase low voltage input from 170 to 265Vac or a three-phase high voltage input from 342 to 528Vac. The input circuit breakers are accessible on the front panel of the cabinet, and the paralleled output bus bar connections are at the rear. Safety features are standard in all Genesys+ power supplies, providing Safe/Auto Re-Start, Last Setting Memory and built-in protection functions for voltage, current and temperature.

Genesys+ uses standardised programming across the entire series via the front panel controls, remotely via LAN (LXI 1.5), USB 2.0 and RS232/485 communications or the isolated analogue control and monitoring interface (0-5V, 0-10V), which are provided as standard. Optional interfaces include a choice of GPIB (IEEE488.2), EtherCAT and Modbus-TCP. The software package provides software drivers, a waveform creator, and a virtual front panel GUI.

The five-year warranty series is safety certified to IEC/EN/UL 61010-1 with CE and UKCA marking to the Low Voltage, EMC and RoHS Directives. The system also complies with IEC/EN 61204-3 for conducted and radiated EMI and EMC immunity.
