Santa Clara, CA, USA, Jan. 29, 2013 – The results of Best in Test Award competition, annually held by famous American “Test & Measurement World” magazine, were announced within DesignCon conference.
AKTAKOM APS-73xxL series of programmable power supplies has become the winner in «PowerSupply» category. Such giants of electronic industry like Keithley Instruments, Agilent Technologies etc. competed to become the winner in this category but the innovative developments of high skilled team of AKTAKOM specialists.
The main intrigue of the competition is «Test Product of the Year» nomination. This year the title of the Product of the year has been awarded to AKTAKOM APS-73xxL power supply series.
Low-cost AKTAKOM APS-73xxL DC power supplies are designed to supply radio equipment with stabilized voltage or current when operating in debugging process, repair and laboratory research.
AKTAKOM APS-73xxL series are programmable power supplies with 3 LED displays. There is a single channel, output regulated voltage of 0…30 V, output current of 0…3 A (APS-7303L) or 0…5 A (APS-7305L), overheat protection, current and voltage stabilization mode.
AKTAKOM APS-73xxL series power supplies differ from other similar devices by wide capabilities of local and remote control through AKTAKOM Power Manager Software.
APS-73xxL power supplies are capable of operating in several modes:
Manual control mode. Including the use of 4 memory cells to store preset voltage and current.
Control mode with the built-in memory use.
Remote control mode to operate AKTAKOM APS-73xxL power supply by computer via USB interface through AKTAKOM Power Manager Software. Moreover the USB interface has full galvanic isolation between the power supply and the computer.
Remote control mode to operate AKTAKOM APS-73xxL power supply by computer via LAN interface.
Remote control mode to operate AKTAKOM APS-73xxL power supply by computer via WEB interface. This remote control mode allows you to operate a device remotely not only by computer but through iPad, iPhone or any other Android-based mobile device.
Remote control mode to operate AKTAKOM APS-73xxL power supply throught the remote access to the computer USB-connected to APS-73хxL. AKTAKOM Power Manager Software provides the operation in «server-client» mode even for devices without built-in LAN interface. Meanwhile the device is physically connected to computer-server via USB interface and the data is available for reading from any computer of the network.
AKTAKOM Power Manager Software (APM) provides a wide range of control capabilities of output voltage and stabilization current both in manual and functional modes. Functional control is a very powerful tool of APM program which allows you not only to control your device automatically by computer but also to program its off-line operation mode by prespecified algorithm. Functional control mode in APM allows automatically controlling the output parameters (voltage and current) of the power supply according to the principle specified with the help of graphics and tabular editors. In a convenient graphics editor user may specify 10 standard forms of parameters (including sine, square, triangle, saw, flash, pulse, 2 types of exponents, 2 types of S-curves), as well as, almost any arbitrary form which can be described formulary. The program operation in equipment operation compatibility mode is also available.
The software system for AKTAKOM APS-73xxL power supply includes a software development kit (SDK) which contains an instrument driver for AKTAKOM APS-73xxL series controllable power supplies. This driver contains all necessary functions to operate the device and represents Windows dynamic link library (DLL) accompanied with a header file for C language, LabWindows function tree and a tool library for NI LabVIEW which completely repeats this tree. Driver library functions can be also called from any other programming environment by the method common for DLL.
