TDK unveils racking cabinets

10th July 2024

TDK has unveiled its latest addition to the TDK-Lambda GENESYS+ series of programmable DC power supplies: the 90kW GSPS 20U 19-inch racking cabinets. 

These GSPS systems efficiently switch between constant voltage, constant current, and constant power limit operating modes. Designed for mobility, the cabinets are equipped with lockable castors, allowing for easy repositioning within research or production environments.

The GSPS series is designed to meet the rigorous requirements of testing and measuring automotive components, electric vehicle batteries, aerospace, high-power magnets, medical imaging, semiconductor processing, and industrial automation and process control applications.

Each cabinet houses twelve GENESYS+ 7.5kW power supplies, providing twelve output voltage ranges from 0-20V to 0-1500V and output currents of up to 4500A. TDK-Lambda’s innovative parallel system ensures dynamic load response and ripple and noise characteristics akin to a single power supply.

The input voltage range for the GSPS series is three-phase 342 to 528Vac, 47-63Hz, accommodating nominal voltages of 380, 400, 415, 440, 460, and 480Vac. Input circuit breakers are accessible from the front panel, while paralleled output bus bar connections are located at the rear. Standard safety features in all GENESYS+ power supplies include Safe/Auto Re-Start, Last Setting Memory, and built-in protection functions for voltage, current, and temperature.

Programming across the entire GENESYS+ series is consistent, whether through front panel controls, remotely via LAN (LXI 1.5), USB 2.0, and RS232/485 communications, or an isolated analogue control and monitoring interface (0-5V, 0-10V), provided as standard. Optional interfaces include GPIB (IEEE488.2), EtherCAT, Modbus-TCP, and IS420 (4 to 20mA isolated current programming loop). The accompanying software package includes drivers, a waveform creator, and a virtual front panel GUI.

The GSPS 20U 19-inch racking cabinet measures 553 x 902 x 1028mm (WxDxH) and weighs under 200kg. Castors can be removed if not required.

The series comes with a five-year warranty and is safety certified to IEC/EN/UL 61010-1, with CE and UKCA markings for Low Voltage, EMC, and RoHS Directives. The GENESYS+™ series also meets IEC/EN 61204-3 standards for conducted and radiated EMI and EMC immunity.
