Top 5 Mistakes to Avoid When Choosing Power Supplies

Posted by Jeff Brakley on Aug 8, 2021 12:00:00 AM

The power supply may be one of the least-considered components of an electronic system. After all, how hard can it be to find the right power source for your system? You figure out how much current you need at the voltage your system will operate at, find a model that can supply that voltage and current in a catalog or on a website, then make the purchase.

Actually, it's not that simple. There are many other things that you need to think about choosing and using a power supply.  Here are five common mistakes that engineers make when choosing and using a power source for their projects:

Basics of Selecting DC or AC Power Supply for Test Systems

Posted by Jeff Brakley on Aug 5, 2021 2:00:00 PM

By James Schada, Product Marketing Manager, AMETEK/VTI Instruments

Choosing the right power supply for your test system or application is no small task. Defining the power requirements for your application comes first, but this is only the beginning. Once you know the voltages and currents, you need to figure out how to power and control your source. There are several decisions that will need to be made.

Managing Waveforms with the Asterion® AC Series

Posted by Jeff Brakley on Mar 10, 2020 12:18:55 PM

One feature that makes the California Instruments™ Asterion® AC Series power sources an ideal choice for sophisticated test applications is their ability to manage test waveforms. In addition to providing the three standard waveforms — sine wave, square wave, and clipped sine wave — the Asterion AC Series has an arbitrary waveform generator that allows you to create up to 200 different custom waveforms and download them into the power source memory.
