What Is a PXI Programmable Power Supply?

You receive a range of voltage and current options and advanced features, such as 4-wire remote sensing and output disconnect relays, with a programmable power supply.

InstrumentStudio™ Interactive Software

PXI Programmable Power Supplies are shipped with an interactive soft front panel called InstrumentStudio for ready-to-run operation. The panel operates with both PXI SMUs and PXI Programmable Power Supplies. You can also monitor and debug the instrument in parallel with running code.

Hardware-Timed Sequences

You can eliminate the software overhead associated with software-controlled sequences and reduce test execution time with hardware-timed, deterministic sequencing and triggering that allow the instrument to execute commands without any intervention from the host software.

Remote Sense and Output Disconnect Relays

Remote sense uses a pair of high-impedance sense lines to measure the voltage at your device under test (DUT) and compensate for any voltage drop between the power supply and your DUT. Additionally, you can programmatically isolate the instrument from your DUT with built-in output disconnect relays.
