Safe operation power supply
All Delta Elektronika power supplies have a safety insulation barrier that isolates all power
output circuits and programming interfaces from the mains. The interfaces are internally
connected to the minus output, so safety is depending on the safety level of the minus output.
The outputs are floating which means that different earthing methods are possible. This
document describes the effect of the earthing methods on the safety of personnel. There is a
distinction between Safe (no further measures required) and Hazardous levels
(additional measures required to ensure safety).
SM15K - Master/Slave assembly kits
This application note is an addition to the SM15K interface manual. It contains instructions for
the connection for Master/ Slave set-ups using the M/S PAR and the M/S SER assembly kits.
PSC ETH: 3 Software utilities
In this application note we describe 3 software utilities for the PSC-ETH Ethernet interface:
- PSC-ETH Easy Control
- PSC-ETH Wave2Sequence
- Power Supply Control I
PSC-ETH: Decimal point
PSC-ETH related programs based on LABVIEW need to work with the decimal point character
(".") When a program is made using fill in boxes for voltage or current settings and the fill in box
visualizes a comma character (",") the operating system is configured with a comma as
PSC-ETH: Local TCP port
Communication with a PSC-ETH is done over Ethernet using the TCP protocol. During initial
connection a socket is created and the operating system selects a local port on which it
requests to receive data from the PSC-ETH. Because this port is not fixed a computer mains
fail might cause the communication to become non restorable.
PSC-ETH: Linking sequences
A power supply with a built in or external ethernet controller PSC-ETH can be used as arbitrary
waveform generator and / or to control processes. In some cases the need may arise to have
more sequence steps or to run several processes after each other, which are stored in different
sequences. Linking sequences can satisfy these requirements. But this is not possible using
internal programming language only. This application note shows how to work around.
