DC Power Supply Systems for Engineering Characterization (AC-DC, DC-DC)

The Engineering Characterization Test System – 5710 is ideal for characterization, design verification, power supplies, and ATE Testing. It is designed to yield comprehensive test data on a wide range of AC-DC and DC-DC power supplies with a minimum of programming effort. Such characterization testing is typically done in an engineering design-verification laboratory where the user’s own designs or vendor prototypes are evaluated. This type of extensive testing is also often required for high-reliability power supplies used in medical, telecommunication, space and avionic applications.

  • Tektronix MDO-Series Mixed Signal Oscilloscope
  • Unlimited voltage, current & timing measurements
  • Library of design verification test routines reduces program development time
  • Wide configuration flexibility

emPower Test Executive Software

NHR’s empowerTM Software offers simplified test creation, execution & reporting for power supply functional tests.

  • Ideal for matrix & high volume testing
  • Zero post development using automatic report generator
  • Sequencer with built in features
  • Reduces software development time & risk
  • Easy data entry environment
  • Complete library of design verification test routines
  • Speeds up test & increases productivity
