Rohde & Schwarz optimizes power supplies for educational applications

It may be news to many people, but Rohde & Schwarz manufactures a range of low cost power supplies.

They have launched a new R&S NGE100B power supply series which is particularly easy and safe to operate, and is ideal for many environments including those of education, as well as development laboratories and many other areas. The robust instruments have galvanically isolated channels and safety binding posts.

The colour-coding of the channels enables users to have an intuitively obvious view of the various areas and options. The power supplies are compact, quiet and can optionally be remotely controlled via WLAN, a unique feature for instruments in the under EUR 1000 price class.

The power supplies' new colour-coding of the channels simplifies operation. Using regulated fans, the R&S NGE100B series is also particularly quiet. In addition, the inputs and outputs are now equipped with safety binding posts, eliminating the need for adapters. The R&S NGE100B series power supplies can be remotely controlled via the integrated USB interface and optionally via LAN or WLAN, which is especially useful for education.

Galvanically isolated channels

In addition, the R&S NGE100B series features some functions that are exceptional in this price class: all channels are galvanically isolated, floating and electrically identical. This allows each channel to be operated as an independent power supply. Higher output voltages and currents can be achieved by combining the channels in serial or in parallel.

Adjustable maximum current, voltage and power

The easy-to-use safety functions protect the device under test and the power supply, even in complex setups. This allows maximum voltages and currents to be set and shutdown scenarios to be defined.

Basic equipment for educational applications

Combined with the R&S RTB2000 oscilloscope, the R&S FPC1500 spectrum analyzer and the R&S HM8012 digital multimeter, the R&S NGE100B power supplies are ideal for universities and R&D laboratories. These instruments are all part of the company’s Value Instruments portfolio, which offers high-performance entry-level T&M equipment at competitive prices.

Gladys West - Pioneer of GPS
GPS and GNSS positioning technology is such an integral part of our lives today that we rarely stop to think about where it all came from. When we do, we usually picture men in white shirts and dark glasses hunched over calculators and slide rules. In fact, one of the early pioneers behind GPS and GNSS technology was Gladys West - a black woman.
