RS Datasheet
The California Instruments RS High Power AC DC Power Source Series consists of multiple high power AC/DC power source models that provide controlled output for ATE and product test applications. This high power AC/DC test system covers a wide spectrum of AC and DC power applications at an affordable cost. Using the innovative PWM switching technique, the RS series integrates robustness and functionality into a compact floor-standing chassis, no larger than a typical office copying machine. This higher power density has been accomplished without sacrificing simplicity in the form of elaborate cooling schemes or additional installation wiring. Simply roll the RS unit to its designated location (using included casters), plug it in, and the RS series is ready to work for you.

The RS Series can be operated completely from its menu driven front panel controller. A backlit LCD display shows menus, setup data, and read-back measurements. IEEE-488, RS232C, USB and LAN remote control interfaces and instrument drivers for popular ATE programming environments are available. This allows the RS Series to be easily integrated into an automated test system. For advanced test applications, the programmable controller version offers full arbitrary waveform generation, time and frequency domain measurements, and voltage and current waveform capture.

The California Instruments RS High Power AC DC Power Source Series includes the California Instruments RS90, California Instruments RS180, California Instruments RS270, California Instruments RS360, California Instruments RS450 and the California Instruments RS540.
California Instruments RS Features
