AKTAKOM APS-7612 programmable remote controlled DC power supply is an excellent choice for automated test solutions and R&D laboratories. Includes Aktakom Power Manager Software for Windows (including Windows 10). Available software development kit (SDK) with all the necessary functions to control the instruments, as well as, dynamic link library (DLL) for Windows. The driver also includes header file for the C programing language, functional and totally free branch of Lab Windows and a complete library of tools for LabVIEW.
There is a single channel, output regulated voltage of 0…60 V, output current of 0…2 A.
AKTAKOM APS-7612 DC remote controlled programmable power supply differs from other similar power supplies by wide capabilities of local and remote control through AKTAKOM Power Manager software.
APS-7612 DC programmable 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 AKTAKOM APS-7612 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-7612 DC power supply throught the remote access to the computer USB-connected to APS-7612. AKTAKOM Power Manager Software provides the operation in «server-client» mode even for power supplies without built-in LAN interface. Meanwhile the power supply 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 software which allows you not only to control your DC power supply 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-7612 programmable DC power supply includes a software development kit (SDK). This SDK is designed for creating user applications using the supported hardware. The SDK contains the device driver with all the necessary functions to control the instruments, as well as, dynamic link library (DLL) for Windows. The driver also includes header file for the C programing language, functional and totally free branch of Lab Windows and a complete library of tools for LabVIEW.
The full version of SDK (comparing to the Base SDK) is recommended for use by qualified programmers who are familiar with technical terms used in the description of this product and can apply its functions to create their own software.

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.
AKTAKOM Power Manager (APM) Software offers wide opportunities for controlling the output voltage and stabilization current both in arbitrary (manual) and in functional modes. Functional control is a powerful APM software tool which allows you not only to automatically control the power supply via your computer but also to program it for the off-line mode operation in accordance with the predetermined algorithm. Functional control mode in APM software allows you to automatically control the output parameters (voltage or current) of the power supply according to the law set by the graphical and tabular editors. In the convenient graphical editor user may set 10 standard forms of parameter changes (including: sine, square, triangle, saw, flash, pulse, 2 types of exponent, 2 types of S-curves) as well as any arbitrary shape which can be described with a formula.
Please note! When you run AKTAKOM Power Manager Software for the first time it will require an access key. This key can be received (copied) at www.tmatlantic.com after the product registration. The key can be entered later, see Settings/Pass key menu.
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.
Making OCP on and pressing output switch; and then the output is automatically shut off.
Current protection value setup is too small. You could press output switch and then make OCP on. Up
The panel buttons don't work when power on.
The panel is locked. Press the key [LOCK/UNLOCK] for over 2 seconds, and then the panel will unlock. Up
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
