What current protection do AKTAKOM power supplies use?
AKTAKOM power supplies use 2 types of protection.
In low end power supplies the current protection is provided mostly by "current stabilization" (CC) mode. When the load resistance decreases (or short circuit) the power supply reduces the output terminals voltage to the minimum level and remains in this condition until the load resistance appears on the terminals. When resistance appears, voltage (and current) will increase proportionally to the set value.
High end power supplies have also over current protection mode (or OCP mode) in addition to the current stabilization mode. OCP mode is activated regardless of current stabilization mode and allows you to set any current limit value at which the power supply will turn off the output terminals voltage. After the protection is activated the power supply terminals will stay off until some certain buttons on the device control panel are pressed, regardless of the load state.
Multi-channel power supplies use OCP options both for separate channels and for the total output current of the power supply.
Thus we may assume that devices without OCP mode use current stabilization mode for the current protection. In devices equipped with OCP mode the current protection works in the trigger mode.
However it should be noted that in both cases, when the protection is activated, the output terminals (and the load) are not galvanically isolated from the power supply.
Making OCP on and pressing output switch; and then the output is automatically shut off.
Current protection value setup is too small. You could press output switch and then make OCP on. Up
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.
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.
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
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.
May I use AKTAKOM power supplies to charge accumulators?
AKTAKOM power supplies canít 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.
