Direct Current (DC) power supplies yield these specific advantages:
Programmable Supply, or System Power Supply, is typically integrated into a computer-operated system. These are most often used during testing or production.
Multi-Range Direct Current (DC) supplies allow a vast array of voltages and currents to operate while maximizing power. In contrast with most power supplies which only reach maximum output when operated with a fixed voltage and current ratings. This is why conventional power supply’s output maximum is often less than their counterparts which use a combination of current and voltage.
Advantages of Multi-Range supply include:
- Output rating flexibility
- Optimized bench space
- Reduced Cost
DC Power Supply devices offer stability in terms of electric current. In some cases, working with electricity, technology and the likes requires control over speed. Simplicity of work may also be an advantage, particularly nowadays, when technology is constantly changing, becoming advanced and sometimes difficult to follow.
- Control over the electric current (i.e. the ability to regulate its degree; slow or fast, etc.)
- Reliable and stable
- Capable of withstanding conditions as heat and even humidity.
- Weight reduction
- High speed
- Ability to drive inductive or capacitive loads, thereby allowing to set a pre-set memory function.
- High speed, low noise operation
The devices serve both as a source of power and a sink of power (power absorption). They also support universal AC voltage, also featuring a multi-channel virtual function, variable internal resistance function.
Examples for DC Power Supply Uses
- Low voltage applications (charging batteries, automative applications, aircraft applications; generally, serves low voltage and low current applications.
- Portable solar systems
- Off-grid appliances.
