Manual Brochure
The Magna-Power MTD1000-150/480 DC Power Supply is one of the models available in the Magna-Power Electronics MT Series VI which uses the same reliable current-fed power processing technology and controls as the rest of the programmable DC power supply product line, but with larger high-power modules: individual 100 kW, 150 kW and 250 kW power supplies. As an added safety measure, all MT Series VI units include an input AC breaker rated for full power. The independent IGBT-based MT Series VI units are among the largest standard switchmode power supplies on the market, minimizing the number of switching components when comparing to smaller module sizes. Scaling in the multi-megawatts is accomplished using the UID47 device, which provides master/slave control: one power supply takes command over the remaining units, for true system operation.

250 kW modules come standard with an embedded 12-pulse harmonic neutralizer, ensuring low total harmonic distortion (THD). Even higher quality AC waveforms are available with an external additional 500 kW 24-pulse or 1000 kW 48-pulse harmonic neutralizers, designed and manufactured exclusively for Magna-Power Electronics products (Page 29).

All MT Series VI power supplies come standard with isolated 37-pin external I/O, RS232, Remote Interface Software, IVI drivers for integration into a variety of programming environment Three front panel types are available (Page 22) for maximum application flexibility. The A Version provides front panel control and calibration, start and stop buttons, and a digital display for voltage and current. The D Version front panel adds a 10-key digital front panel entry, memory sequencing, and modulation capabilities for non-linear output profile emulation.
