Agilent Technologies introduced seven high-power modules for its N6700 modular power systems. According to the company, the new modules expand the ability of test-system integrators and R&D engineers to deliver multiple channels of high power (up to 500 watts) to devices under test.
With the addition of the new modules, engineers and integrators can now choose from a total of 34 modules for the N6700 MPS.
Our customers appreciate the mix-and-match design of the Agilent N6700 MPS for both ATE and R&D applications, said Gary Whitman, vice president of Agilent s System Products Division. But some customers need power supplies with higher power than we previously offered. With these new modules, we continue to expand the MPS platform to meet our customers needs.
The new modules, together with the 27 modules already offered, comprise a family ranging in power from 18W to 500W at four different performance levels: basic, high performance, precision, and source/measure unit. R&D engineers and test-system integrators can mix and match any of these modules in any of the four MPS mainframes (three for automated test and one for R&D ). Systems can be from one to four outputs, at prices starting at $1,000 per output.
All of the Agilent N6700 mainframes are fully compliant with the LXI Class C specification. They have USB 2.0, 10/100 Base-T Ethernet and GPIB interfaces as standard features. They can also be remotely operated from any Web browser.
