    • What is the assignment of Aktakom Power Manager?

      AKTAKOM Power Manager (APM) Software offers wide opportunities for controlling the output voltage and stabilization current both in arbitrary (manual) and in functional modes. Functional control is a powerful APM software tool which allows you not only to automatically control the device via your computer but also to program it for the off-line mode operation in accordance with the predetermined algorithm. Functional control mode in APM software allows you to automatically control the output parameters (voltage or current) of the power supply according to the law set by the graphical and tabular editors. In the convenient graphical editor user may set 10 standard forms of parameter changes (including: sine, square, triangle, saw, flash, pulse, 2 types of exponent, 2 types of S-curves) as well as any arbitrary shape which can be described with a formula.

      1. The software has no physical media (CD) and can be downloaded at www.tmatlantic.com after registering the equipment with a serial number. Therefore follow Product registration link on www.tmatlantic.com
      2. PC installation of AKTAKOM Power Manager Software is instructed on www.tmatlantic.com and www.aktakom.com
      3. Please note! When you run AKTAKOM Power Manager Software for the first time it will require an access key. This key can be received (copied) at www.tmatlantic.com after the device registration. The key can be entered later, see Settings/Pass key menu.

      How can I connect Aktakom APS-3320L power supply to my PC?

      Connection to the PC is made via USB or LAN located on the rear panel of APS-3320L. The first connection to your PC should be made via USB interface. This will help to install the network parameters of your local network for the connection to the device. Installation instruction for the network parameters is given in HELP file.

      1. For the device automatic search and connection it is not recommended to run AKTAKOM Power Manager Software after the PC installation but at first to connect the USB cable of APS-3320L to the PC and then to run the program agreeing with the device automatic search. You may connect the device to the PC manually, see HELP file.

      2. Please note! When you run AKTAKOM Power Manager Software for the first time it will require an access key. This key can be received (copied) at www.tmatlantic.com after APS-3320L registration. The key can be entered later, see Settings/Pass key menu. If you do not enter the key after you run the software this program will operate in demo-mode.

      3. State (status) of the device remote control is indicated on the front panel with the connection indicator:

      • in the manual control mode – the indicator is OFF,
      • USB cable is connected (operation via USB) – the indicator is red,
      • LAN cable is connected (USB cable is disconnected) – the indicator is green,
      • there is “connected” mode set in the program (the device is operating in the remote control mode, the manual control is OFF) – the indicator is blinking in green or red color.

      4. After interface connection, the network cable connection and active work of the local network the indicators of LAN socket should be blinking. Note: when you operate via LAN you need to DISCONNECT the USB cable.

      5. USB interface takes priority. After you connect the USB cable the device can be controlled via the PC and the program connected via USB.

      6. Please note! Be careful! Disconnection of the USB or LAN cable or the controlling program will return the voltage and current values which were set manually using «LOAD» button and the rotary switches on the front panel (Fig 1, 11,12.13.). Always before entering the remote control mode it’s recommended to switch off «LOAD» button.

      If you have any questions concerning the use of interfaces or the software check the detailed description and the section with frequently asked questions at www.tmatlantic.com and www.aktakom.com.

      Do AKTAKOM power supplies have short circuit protection?

      Yes they have.
      Almost all modern power supplies have two operation modes: voltage stabilization mode and current stabilization mode. In case of short circuit the power supply automatically switches from the output voltage stabilization mode to the output current stabilization mode, and the output voltage starts proportionally dropping. At the same time the current in the load connected to the power supply will be limited with the value set with the screwdriver slot used to adjust the output current value on the front panel of the power supply. For the best protection it is recommended to set a low current value. In case of short circuit the current in the connected load will be limited with the value set on the power supply.

      How to connect to the power supply via web-interface?

      There is no web-interface remote control feature for this power supply. To control the power supply remotely use the software provided in the standard accessory kit for the device.

      How can I check the device serial number in APM program?

      The program automatically reads all serial numbers of the detected devices. To detect devices open Settings window and select Technique tab. Then select the required equipment type out of the model list and click “Detect”:

      You will see the list of all detected devices with their names and serial numbers respectively.

      After you select the required device and connect it to the program its serial number will be also displayed in the title of the program main window.

      How can I work in the current stabilization mode?

      1. If OUTPUT indicator is red than press LOAD button. In that case OUTPUT indicator should go out and the current indicator will display the set current value.
      2. By using VOLTAGE adjustment rotary switch set the required output voltage (at the same time nothing should be connected to the output terminals «+» and «-»).
      3. By using CURRENT rotary switch set the maximum allowable current value (current limit value) for your load. If in the operating mode the load resistance change will cause the excess of the specified current limit, the device will automatically switch to the current stabilization mode and the output voltage will proportionally fall.
      4. Connect the load to the device and press LOAD button. OUTPUT indicator should become red.
      5. Before you disconnect the load press LOAD button. OUTPUT indicator will go out.
      6. Before switching off the device, disconnect the load.

      What instruction should I follow to work in the voltage stabilization mode?

      1. If OUTPUT indicator is red than press LOAD button. In that case OUTPUT indicator should go out and the current indicator will display the set current value.
      2. Adjust VOLTAGE adjustment rotary switches in order to obtain the maximum allowable load voltage on the device output. If in the operating mode the load resistance change will cause the excess of the specified voltage limit, the device will automatically switch to the voltage stabilization mode with setting on terminals «+» and «-» of the preset voltage value limit, and the output current will proportionally fall.
      3. By using CURRENT rotary switch set the maximum allowable current value (current limit value) for your load.
      4. Connect the load to the device and press LOAD button. OUTPUT indicator should become red.
      5. Before you disconnect the load press LOAD button. OUTPUT indicator will go out.
      6. Before switching off the device, disconnect the load.

      May I use AKTAKOM power supplies to charge accumulators?

      AKTAKOM power supplies can’t be used for accumulator charging since it may cause the accumulator breakage (recharge, electrolyte boiling, extra pressure of the internal gas which will lead to the accumulator explosion). Accumulators should be charged with the current source which controls the accumulator voltage and regulates the charging current accordingly. When the required accumulator voltage is achieved such type of source simply stops the charging process, its name is a charging device.
