TEST INSTRUMENT SAFETY

WARNING

Normal use of test equipment exposes you to a certain amount of danger from electrical shock because testing must sometimes be performed where exposed high voltage is present. An electrical shock causing 10 milliamps of current to pass through the heart will stop most human heartbeats. Voltage as low as 35 volts dc or ac rms should be considered dangerous and hazardous since it can produce a lethal current under certain conditions. Higher voltages are even more dangerous. Your normal work habits should include all accepted practices to prevent contact with exposed high voltage, and to steer current away from your heart in case of accidental contact with a high voltage. Observe the following safety precautions:

1.There is little danger of electrical shock from the dc output of this power supply. However, there are several other possible test conditions using this power supply that can create a high voltage shock hazard:

a.If the equipment under test is the “hot chassis” type, a serious shock hazard exists unless the equipment is unplugged (just turning off the equipment does not remove the hazard), or an isolation transformer is used.

b.If the equipment under test is “powered up” (and that equipment uses high voltage in any of its circuits), the power supply outputs may be floated to the potential at the point of connection. Remember that high voltage may appear at unexpected points in defective equipment. Do not float the power supply output to more than 100 volts peak with respect to chassis or earth ground.

c.If the equipment under test is “off” (and that equipment uses high voltage in any of its circuits under normal operation), discharge high-voltagecapacitors before making connections or tests. Some circuits retain high voltage long after the equipment is turned off.

2.Use only a polarized 3-wireac outlet. This assures that the power supply chassis, case, and ground terminal are connected to a good earth ground and reduces danger from electrical shock.

3.Don’t expose high voltage needlessly. Remove housings and covers only when necessary. Turn off equipment while making test connections in high-voltagecircuits. Dischargehigh-voltagecapacitors after removing power.

INTRODUCTION

The B & K-Precision Models 1651A & 1652 Triple Output DC Power Supplies are high quality, general purpose dc power sources. They provide two supplies with a0-24volt dc output and one with a fixed 5 volt dc output. The0-24Vsupplies are adjustable and are capable of current output of0-0.5amp. The fixed 5V supply has a current output of0-4amps, allowing it to handle extensive digital logic circuitry. Two panel mounted meters can simultaneously monitor the output current and

output voltage of either of the 0-24Vsupplies.

 

The two 0-24volt supplies can be operated independently or

 

in one of two tracking modes. In the series tracking mode, the

 

“B” supply tracks the voltage of the “A” supply. In the series

 

tracking mode the “A” and “B” supplies are connected in

 

series, allowing a single output of 0-48Vat up to 0.5 amps. In

 

the parallel tracking mode, the two supplies are connected in

 

parallel, allowing a single 0-24Voutput at up to 1 amp.

 

Both 0-24volt supplies may be used in constant voltage or

 

constant current applications. The crossover from constant

 

voltage to constant current modes is smooth and automatic.

 

LED’s indicate the Constant Current mode of operation. In

 

constant voltage applications, a current limit may be preset.

 

When load variations cause the current to reach the preset

 

limit, the unit then regulates output current rather than output

 

voltage. Current limits are adjustable from 6% to 100% of

 

maximum. In constant current applications, the maximum

 

voltage may be preset. When load variations cause current to

 

drop below the regulated value, the unit reverts to regulated

 

voltage operation at the preset value.

The fixed 5V supply is ideal for powering digital logic circuitry. The 0-4amp capacity allows the supply to be used for large circuits.Built-inoverload protection automatically limits the current output to a maximum of 4 amps. An LED indicator lights when the supply is overloaded.

These supplies exhibits excellent regulation and low ripple characteristics. The circuit design incorporates a pre-regulator,which greatly reduces internal power dissipation at low output voltages.

Reverse polarity protection prevents accidental damage to the power supply from improper connection to an external voltage, and current limiting protects the equipment being powered, as well as the power supply.

The output is isolated from chassis and earth ground, which permits full flexibility of connections. When needed, the (+) or (-)polarity may be strapped to ground, or either polarity may be floated to an external voltage. Additionally, the two “main” volt supplies can be used as a “split supply” with two positive voltages and a common negative, two negative voltages and a common positive, or one positive, one negative, and a common. All of these configurations can be used with either matching (tracking) or differing (independent) voltages.

INTRODUCTION______________________________________________________________________________________

The features and versatility of these units, especially the triple output and tracking features, make them an ideal general purpose power supply for engineering lab applications. They can serve as a single or multi-voltagepower source, including the bias supply, for breadboard and prototype circuits and equipment. They can provide single or simultaneously varying voltages for circuit evaluation. They can provide tracking (+) and(-)voltages for evaluating differential amplifiers. They may be used as a battery eliminator, or to power individual circuit boards or cards while removed from the system. Their output can be evaluated while powering a breadboard or prototype circuit to determine the circuit’s power supply requirements. Their laboratory quality specifications will meet most engineering laboratory requirements.

The same features that make the Model 1651A and 1652 a good choice for an engineering lab also make them a good choice for most other solid state electronic applications. These applications include service shops; industrial production testing of components, assemblies, and complete equipment; for school laboratories, and home use by electronic hobbyists.

FEATURES

TRIPLE OUTPUT

Operates as three separate power supplies. Each has floating output and is completely isolated from the other two.

ONE FIXED 5V SUPPLY

0-to-4amp fixed 5 volt supply is ideal for use with most digital logic circuitry. Adequate current capacity for extensive circuitry.

TWO 0-24VOLT SUPPLIES

UNIQUE TRACKING FEATURE

The two 0-to-24V supplies can be operated so that the “B” supply tracks the “A” supply. Outputs can be strapped for two positive voltages with a common negative, two negative voltages with a common positive, or one positive and one negative with a neutral common.

SINGLE 0-48VSUPPLY

Series tracking feature allows use of “A” and “B” supplies as one 0-to-48V, 0.5 amp supply.

SINGLE 0-24V1 AMP SUPPLY

Parallel tracking feature allows use of “A” and “B” supplies as a 0-to-24V supply with a 1 amp current capacity (through “A” output terminals).
