The Extech Switching Power Supply constantly calculates and adjusts the voltage and current limit points according to the availabe maximum power.
The Extech 160W power supply offers high efficiency electrical power conversion for greater energy conservation and lighter power. It constantly calculates and adjusts the voltage and current limit points according to the available maximum power (160W). At maximum current, 10A, the voltage is limited to 16V, and at maximum voltage, 42V, the current is limited to 3.8A. A dual action rotary encoder control with push knob provides smooth, accurate and quick setting of voltage/current.
Three on-board user-defined voltage and current presets offer quick recall of frequently used test settings. The remote control feature permits output On/Off and voltage/current adjustments without the need to touch the front panel of the power supply. Setting, changing, and verifying the current limit level is convenient and can be performed without output pole spiking. A USB port offers PC connectivity for programming and running ramp/soak cycles with 20 programmable sets of voltage/current and varying test durations, up to 999 cycles. The DC ramp and waveform generator can either be panel set or set by the supplied software which previews the final waveform.
Applications and industries where the DCP42 can be employed include laboratory, telecommunications, production testing, field testing, and DC network powering.

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.Read More
We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.Read More
The Spring 2017 Environmental Monitor is on the way to subscribers this month. Our quarterly print editions feature the best of the Monitor's coverage from the past few months with added photos, graphics, updates and the latest monitoring gear. If you don't have a print subscription, you can sign up for free. If you'd like to peruse some of our past editions, check out our print archive . In this edition, we showcase a number of projects that are truly advancing the way data are gathered in the environmental monitoring field. This includes a look at the first-ever deployment of the ESPniagara in Lake Erie, a device for real-time microcystin measurements that is so advanced its makers say it is essentially a robot.Read More
