ROHDE & SCHWARZ OPTIMISES POWER SUPPLIES FOR EDUCATIONAL APPLICATIONS
The new power supply series consists of the R&S NGE102B with two channels and the R&S NGE103B with three channels. They are suitable for various applications in education and production as well as in R&D labs. With these new features, Rohde & Schwarz is addressing the educational sector in particular.
The power supplies’ new color-coding of the channels simplifies operation. Thanks to regulated fans, the R&S NGE100B series is also particularly quiet. In addition, the inputs and outputs are now equipped with safety binding posts, eliminating the need for adapters. The R&S NGE100B series power supplies can be remotely controlled via the integrated USB interface and optionally via LAN or WLAN, which is especially useful for education.
Galvanically isolated channels
In addition, the R&S NGE100B series features some functions that are exceptional in this price class: all channels are galvanically isolated, floating and electrically identical. This allows each channel to be operated as an independent power supply. Higher output voltages and currents can be achieved by combining the channels in serial or in parallel.
Adjustable maximum current, voltage, and power
The easy-to-use safety functions protect the device under test and the power supply, even in complex setups. This allows maximum voltages and currents to be set and shutdown scenarios to be defined.
Basic equipment for educational applications
Combined with the R&S RTB2000 oscilloscope, the R&S FPC1500 spectrum analyzer and the R&S HM8012 digital multimeter, the R&S NGE100B power supplies are ideal for universities and R&D laboratories. These instruments are all part of the company’s Value Instruments portfolio, which offers high-performance entry-level T&M equipment at competitive prices.
The power supplies are available now from Rohde & Schwarz and selected sales partners, with prices starting at EUR 650. The new series is replacing the R&S NGE100 series. Rohde & Schwarz will continue to provide software updates, service and maintenance for the R&S NGE100 predecessor series.
