Extech DCP60 600W Switching Power Supply
The Extech Switching Power Supply is perfect for solving a variety of loading conditions and applications.
- Three user-defined voltage and current presets
- Dual action rotary encoder control with push knob for fine and coarse tuning
- Remote control for output voltage/current and On/Off
|DCP60||High efficiency switching power supply with low ripple and noise, 120V|
|Usually ships in 1-2 weeks|
|DCP60-220||High efficiency switching power supply with low ripple and noise, 220V|
|Usually ships in 1-2 weeks|
The Extech 600W switching power supply is designed for laboratory use, but is also excellent for bench technicians, engineers, and educational facilities. The dual action course/fine tuning provides smooth, accurate, and quick setting of voltage and current. Setting, changing, and verifying the current limit level is convenient and can be performed without output pole spiking. A remote control feature permits output On/Of and voltage/current adjustement.
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. Three user-defined voltage/current settings offer quick recall of frequently used tests. Applications and industries where the DCP60 can be employed include laboratory, telecommunications, production testing, field testing, and DC network powering.

Time is of the essence when it comes to tracking algal blooms, and people everywhere are looking for solutions. In Florida, scientists from Florida Atlantic University Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) recently trialed a solar-powered, algae-tracking sail boat developed by Navocean , Inc. Dr. Jordon Beckler of Florida Atlantic University (FAU) directs HBOI's Geochemistry and Geochemical Sensing Lab and spoke to EM about the trials and the boat.
"This boat is so amazing when you see it in action," remarks Dr. Beckler. "Navocean originally contacted me a few years back about a demonstration when I was over at my previous institution in West Florida, and we brainstormed some scenarios for employing the boat for harmful algae bloom monitoring.Read More
CICHAZ Biological Field Station Provides A Unique Educational and Research Experience in Mexico’s Huasteca Region
The story of the Centro de Investigaciones Científicas de las Huastecas "Aguazarca" (CICHAZ) Biological Field Station, a member of the Organization of Biological Field Stations ( OBFS ), starts with Dr. Gil Rosenthal, Professor of Biology and Chair of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Texas A &; M University . Rosenthal has worked in the Huasteca region of Mexico since 1994 and for years kept his research equipment at a local ranch/hotel with the dream of one day having a field station where he could run experiments with collaborators and students. Since 2005, Rosenthal has been the Co-Director of the field station along with his wife, Dr.Read More
For as long as scientists have been studying the ocean, they have been limited by a lack of power. However, recent work from researchers at the University of Washington (UW) offers a promising new way to harvest energy from waves at sea. UW associate professor of mechanical engineering Brian Polagye spoke to EM about a recent project that used wave energy to power one of UW’s Adaptable Monitoring Packages, or AMPs.
“Our work in this area has really been ongoing since about 2012,” explains Dr. Polagye. “We put our first prototype AMP in the water back in 2015. Since then, it’s been going through successive evolutions, variations on the package.Read More
