FET switching technology provides laboratory-grade performance specifications and autoranging capability in a compact lightweight package. The high electrical efficiency, obtained through the use of flyback switching, reduces your overall system cooling requIrements. The microprocessor-based HP-IB interface provides a friendly programming format. Output voltage and current can be programmed directly in volts and amperes with 12-blt resolution. Information regarding the output and load is available through remote metering over the HP-IB.
As an autoranging power supply, the 6034A can provide maximum rated power over a wide range of voltage and current without the operator having to program the proper range.
Eight status parameters can be read back via the HP-IB to enhance system versatility. These status parameters perrmt identification of the operational mode and fault conditions of the 6034A. They also can be used to initiate corrective action for fault conditions without operator intervention. The overvoltage trip point can be programmed directly in volts with 8-bit resolution, or set with a front panel adjustment. Other protection oriented features include soft voltage and current limits, and overtemperature protection. Soft limit protection allows the user to program limits such that only voltage and current values within these limits will be accepted by the power supply.
