Agilent Supports Alternative Energy Market

Agilent’s Electronic Measurement Group has taken a big step into the high-growth energy market with its publicly introduced two new power supply families that address high-power needs: the Advanced Power System (APS) N6900/N7900 series and the N8900 autoranging system 5, 10 and 15 kW DC power supply series.

The new power supply families address applications in alternative energy as with solar inverters and wind generators, in energy storage such as high-voltage lithium batteries and battery management systems, and in automotive with electric / hybrid-electric vehicles.  These applications require clean, stable power and high voltages.

Agilent APS power supplies help engineers overcome a variety of difficult test challenges related to power, including protecting high-value DUTs against power-related damage, maintaining output integrity under dynamic load conditions and characterizing dynamic current profiles. The N8900 can be paralleled acting as a single supply sourcing up to 100 kW of power.
