With the maximum output power of 217W, the GPP-Series, the multi-channel programmable DC power supply, includes four models: GPP-1326 (0~32V/0~6A) for single-channel output and GPP-2323 for dual-channel output (CH1:0~32V/0~3A, CH2: 0~32V/0~3A), GPP-3323 for three-channel output (CH1: 0~32V/0~3A, CH2:0~32V/0~3A, CH3: 1.8V, 2.5V, 3.3V, 5.0V/5A) and GPP-4323 for four-channel output (CH1:0~32V/0~3A, CH2:0~32V/0~3A, CH3:0~5V/0 ~1A, CH4: 0~15V/0~1A). This series not only provides high program resolution (1mV/0.1mA) and read back resolution (0.1mV/0.1mA), but also features optimal low-ripple noise characteristics 350 Vrms/ 2mArms and output transient recovery capability 50 S. Independent output on-off switch is provided for each channel. For series and parallel applications of CH1 and CH2, the tracking function of the GPP-Series utilises the internal circuit to automatically switch the output to serial or parallel output without additional external wiring, providing users with convenience not only in operating procedures but also a more stable output. The tracking function design of other brands requires additional external wiring connections for the output in series or parallel. However, excessively long, thin or inconsistent external wiring may cause inaccurate voltage or current output. The GPP-Series offers a variety of display modes, including single or multi-channel setting values, measurement values, and waveform displays. The Monitor function of the GPP-Series allows users to set monitoring conditions according to requirements, sound alarms or stop output during the measurement process, and stop measurement and protect the customer’s DUT. The GPP-Series provides output recorder function, which records the voltage/current of the output process to the internal memory, and the result can be stored as a (*.REC) or (*.CSV) file, which can then be transferred to the USB flash drive. The stored *.CSV can be exported to the Excel to conduct the future analysis.
The CH1/CH2 of the GPP-Series are designed with the load function. A single power supply can set one channel as the power output, and one channel for the load function to consume the power of the DUT so as to meet the basic charging and discharging test requirements for battery. Channel 1 and channel 2 not only provide 32V/3A power output, but also feature builtin maximum 32V constant voltage load (CV), maximum 3.2A constant current load (CC) and maximum 1k constant resistance Ω load (CR) function.
The GPP-Series provides the sequential output function on Channel 1 and Channel 2. This function not only allows users to edit the power output waveform, but also allows users to set the sequential constant voltage (CV) or constant current (CC) load waveform, i.e. a serial power output or a simulation test of a dynamic load. In order to simplify the setting of waveform editing, the GPP-Series has 8 built-in Templet waveforms in the sequence output function for users to directly apply for output, including Sine, Pulse, Ramp, Stair Up, Stair Dn, Stair UpDn, Exp Rise, Exp Fall waveforms.
The sound protection functions include OVP/OCP/OPP/OTP, in which the protection mechanism for OVP/OCP/OTP is implemented by hardware circuit that has the advantage of faster response time compared with competitors who adopt software to achieve protections. The OVP/OCP functions allow users to set the protection action point (except CH3 of GPP-3323) according to the conditions of the DUT. The OPP is only activated during the operation of the load function. The Delay Function sets the length of time during channel 1 or channel 2 power output on or during power output off.
In addition, the Trigger In/ Trigger Out functions synchronise external devices. The GPP-3323 channel 3 adds a 3A USB (Type A) output terminal for USB charging test. The intelligent temperature-controlled fan can adjust the speed according to the temperature of the power transistor so as to reduce unnecessary noise. The output value setting and the Sequence/Delay/ Recorder functions provide 10 sets of internal memory for use, and can be loaded/stored using a USB flash drive. In addition to the standard RS-232 and USB remote interfaces, the GPP-Series also has an optional LAN or LAN+GPIB interface to facilitate different requirements. The commands of the GPP-Series conform to SCPI requirements and are compatible with the commands of the GPD-X303S Series
