AKTAKOM APS-7306LS DC programmable power supply is designed to power radio technical equipment with stabilized voltage and current in repair process, laboratory research.
APS-7306LS DC Programmable power supply is the updated version of world famous Aktakom APS-7305L. In 2013 at Best in Test Award competition annually held by American “Test & Measurement World” APS-7305L became the winner in 2 categories at once «Power supply» and «Test Product of the Year»!
AKTAKOM APS-73xxLS series programmable DC power supplies differ from other similar devices by wide capabilities of local and remote control through AKTAKOM Power Manager software.
This power supply is 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 APS-7306LS DC 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-7306LS programmable power supply by computer using LAN interface (Ethernet).
Available software development kit (SDK) for custom software applications for LabVIEW, C++, LabWindows-CVI and MS VB is designed to help users in developing their own applications for AKTAKOM power supplies.

We have added a number of new features to AKTAKOM Power Manager 21 Pro, trying to keep it simple and easy to use.
AKTAKOM laboratory power supplies can supply current with arbitrary parameters precisely set by the user, but in practice a number of parameters with fixed values are most often used - 1.5 Volts, 3.3, 9, 12 ... In APM21 Pro, you can make a list of your "favorite" values in advance voltage and current and then set them to the device with one click.
Command list management
Another important property of our power supplies is the ability to dynamically change the current output parameters. APM21 Pro can do this automatically. Set a list of commands to the device in advance, specifying the necessary parameters and time, save the list to a file and run it for automatic execution when you need it.
Customizable user interface
In addition to additional ways to control the device, the main window of the program also has a graph displaying the history of measurements received from the device. All this may seem redundant and cluttering for someone who plans to use the source for simple standard tasks. In this case, you can customize the user interface in a way that is convenient for you: hide and collapse all the blocks you don’t need with special buttons and leave only the ones you need.
If your lab's power supply is used for research, you may need to review instrument operation later. Therefore, we saved the history of events (displayed in the Protocol window) and measurement data (displayed on the graph in the main window) to a file.
What current protection do AKTAKOM power supplies use?
AKTAKOM power supplies use 2 types of protection.
In low end power supplies the current protection is provided mostly by "current stabilization" (CC) mode. When the load resistance decreases (or short circuit) the power supply reduces the output terminals voltage to the minimum level and remains in this condition until the load resistance appears on the terminals. When resistance appears, voltage (and current) will increase proportionally to the set value.
High end power supplies have also over current protection mode (or OCP mode) in addition to the current stabilization mode. OCP mode is activated regardless of current stabilization mode and allows you to set any current limit value at which the power supply will turn off the output terminals voltage. After the protection is activated the power supply terminals will stay off until some certain buttons on the device control panel are pressed, regardless of the load state.
Multi-channel power supplies use OCP options both for separate channels and for the total output current of the power supply.
Thus we may assume that devices without OCP mode use current stabilization mode for the current protection. In devices equipped with OCP mode the current protection works in the trigger mode.
However it should be noted that in both cases, when the protection is activated, the output terminals (and the load) are not galvanically isolated from the power supply.
May I use AKTAKOM power supplies to charge accumulators?
AKTAKOM power supplies can’t be used for accumulator charging since it may cause the accumulator breakage (recharge, electrolyte boiling, extra pressure of the internal gas which will lead to the accumulator explosion). Accumulators should be charged with the current source which controls the accumulator voltage and regulates the charging current accordingly. When the required accumulator voltage is achieved such type of source simply stops the charging process, its name is a charging device.
How to see a device serial number in AKTAKOM Power Manager software?
The program automatically reads the serial numbers of all devices found. To detect the device open Settings window, go to Connection and Presets tab, select the right device type you need in the list of models and click “Detect”:
In the list of detected devices you will see all names and serial numbers of the devices found.
After you select one of the detected devices and connect it to the program its serial number will be displayed in the program main window title. Up
