The P961xA Series of programmable DC power supplies gives you the performance of the top-of-the-line power supplies at an outstanding price. All models provide clean power, excellent regulation and a fast transient response. The P961xA Series is designed to meet the requirements of the most demanding applications in circuit design and verification, production testing, and quality assurance with the superior quality and reliability that you have come to expect from Picotest.

Single-Output Autoranging Power Supplies
These single output power supplies offer continuous autoranging, eliminating the need to manually select the optimum range. All of the power supplies power is available to you across the voltage and current ranges giving you the ultimate in flexibility. Output load is protected against overvoltage and overcurrent, which are easily monitored and adjusted from the front panel and remote interface. Remote sense is available to eliminate the errors due to voltage drops on the load leads.

Low Noise and Excellent Regulation
LESS than 0.01% load and line regulation keep the outputs steady and stable. Low noise assures clean power for precision circuitry while the low common mode current (< 1.5uArms) provides isolation from power line current injection.

Front Panel Operation
The intuitive interface allows you to monitor both voltage and current simultaneously for any one output from the front panel on an easy to read display. A optical knob doesn’t get dirty and allows you to quickly adjust the output at the resolution you need for precise and reliable results. You can program voltage or current sequences.

Remote Interface
All models come standard with USB and GPIB interfaces. You can program both voltage and current. In addition, you can monitor the output terminals for voltage and current, while a query command lets you read the programmed voltage and current. And programming is done in easy to use SCPI.
