Agilent Technologies has introduced the U8000 Series single-output,
non-programmable DC power supplies, a low-cost expansion of the best-selling
Agilent E3600 Series.
Beyond cost savings, these DC power supplies offer excellent value with
features that are typical only in costly programmable models. With power
ranging from 90W to 150W, they are suitable for a variety of
electronics-manufacturing applications and provide reliable, affordable
power for educational uses.
The U8000 Series offers fully integrated overvoltage and overcurrent
protection features that provide comprehensive damage prevention for
devices-under-test. During test setup, users can save and recall up to three
memory states, minimizing manual errors and increasing efficiency. The
series also offers excellent load and line regulation, fast transient
response and low output noise.
Agilent's U8000 Series also includes security features uncommon in standard
power supplies. One example is a keypad lock, which prevents measurement
errors due to accidental or unauthorized front-panel use. Another is a
physical lock mechanism that secures instrument storage and is especially
useful on manufacturing floors and in education labs.
"Agilent power supplies have an excellent reputation for reliability,
quality and high performance, and have traditionally been regarded as
high-end products," said Ee Huei-Sin, vice president of Agilent's Basic
Instruments Division. "With the new U8000 Series, customers can now own a
high-quality, feature-rich Agilent power supply at an affordable price."
