A DC power supply provides a constant current of power to any electrical device, system or load, and is an essential tool for electrical testing and measurement. By producing a reliable current to a device, DC power supplies generate and/or simulate a steady flow of voltage to loads in a circuit. This consistent current output is key in electrical systems requiring DC energy or DC energy conversion.
DC power supply units are commonly used in a variety of industries, most prominently alternative energy, for the testing of prototype designs, semiconductors, solar (photovoltaic) cells, batteries, wind turbines, and more. Technicians in these fields commonly rent a DC power supply to fulfill requirements for standards like IEC 61000
, RS-485, and IEEE 488.2.
ATEC carries a variety of DC power supplies with the option of high or low voltage and high or low current and programmable functionality. Our inventory includes power sources available in precision low-power, multiple output, and high-power models to meet the entire spectrum of DC power source testing needs. We offer products from leading manufacturers like Chroma, EM Test, Keysight, Magna-Power, Magnavolt, Tektronix, and more.
