Kepco announces an option for its 200W and 400W BOP models to optimize their
ability to drive capacitive loads. This option (designated by the suffix "C")
makes the BOP more suitable for a wide variety of applications such as solar
cell/panel testing, testing of piezoelectric devices, capacitor testing,
driving and testing of capacitive transducers, and powering industrial or
lab-type applications with capacitive or capacitive-resistive loads.
BOP C option units are designed to operate in a stable
manner in Voltage or Voltage Limit mode for capacitive loads up to 10
millifarads. They are also stable when driving any R-C parallel combination
where load R is > or = to nominal value and C is < or = to 10mF. Load R
(nominal value) = nominal output Voltage/nominal output Current (e.g., BOP
36-6MC, R = 36/6 = 6 Ohms.) Static specifications representing accuracy for
various influence parameters are identical to the standard BOP models. Ripple
and noise specifications are better (approximately 50 percent lower) for the C
option units compared to the standard BOP. Six models (ranging from 20 to 100V
source/sink capability) are available at present. Three additional models are
expected to be available in the coming months.
On Memorial Day, Americans remember the sacrifices the US armed forces have made, and continue to make, in service to the country. All of us should also consider the developments in technological capabilities and equipment over the years that contribute to the success of our military operations.
In order to keep in line with safety protocols, industrial networks need to be filtered in a semantic way so that only information related to diagnostics is flowing back to the vendor and that any communications that could be used for remote machine operations are suppressed.
Advanced visualization can depict an entire plant in motion, while also detailing an individual workstation. Individual products can be rendered different for each discipline involved — marketing, engineering, or suppliers.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
