B&K Precision PVS High Power Programmable Power Supplies

B&K Precision PVS High Power Programmable Power Supplies come in a 2U package and offer clean output power up to 5.1 kW, excellent regulation, and fast transient response time characteristics. The power supplies feature high programming resolution, multiple remote interfaces for test systems, and a built-in SAS (solar array simulator) function to generate PV (photovoltaic) I-V curves. Users are able to consistently reproduce various I-V curves to test a PV inverter's MPPT efficiency with optional SAS software.
