AKTAKOM APS-3320LS Single Output DC Regulated Bench remote controlled programmable power supply with Adjustable Current limit. Large Digital Display with LED meter displays Volts & Amps. Push button switch allows connection & removal of load. Multiturn Voltage control for precise settings. Front panel output Banana Jacks & Terminal strip for remote Voltmeter Sensing at the load.

There is a four-wire (4-wire) connection scheme used. This connection method provides accurate voltage supply preset in the load. This leads to the compensation of the wire resistance connecting the power supply and the load that is especially important in the industrial application of the power supply.

There is a single channel, output regulated voltage of 0…30 V, output current of 0…20 A.

AKTAKOM APS-3320LS DC power supply differs from other similar power supplies by wide capabilities of local and remote control through AKTAKOM Power Manager software.

APS-3320LS remote controlled DC power supply is capable of operating in several modes:

Manual control mode. Including the use of 4 memory cells to store preset voltage and current.

Remote control mode to operate AKTAKOM APS-3320LS DC power supply by computer via USB interface through AKTAKOM Power Manager Software. Moreover the USB interface has full galvanic isolation between the power supply and the computer.

Remote control mode to operate AKTAKOM APS-3320LS DC power supply by computer using an USB cable or LAN cable (ethernet).

Remote control mode to operate AKTAKOM APS-3320LS DC power supply throught the remote access to the computer USB-connected to APS-3320LS. AKTAKOM Power Manager Software provides the operation in «server-client» mode even for power supplies without built-in LAN interface. Meanwhile the power supply is physically connected to computer-server via USB interface and the data is available for reading from any computer of the network.

AKTAKOM Power Manager Software (APM) provides a wide range of control capabilities of output voltage and stabilization current both in manual and functional modes. Functional control is a very powerful tool of APM software which allows you not only to control your AKTAKOM power supply automatically by computer but also to program its off-line operation mode by prespecified algorithm. Functional control mode in APM software allows automatically controlling the output parameters (voltage and current) of the power supply according to the principle specified with the help of graphics and tabular editors. In a convenient graphics editor user may specify 10 standard forms of parameters (including sine, square, triangle, saw, flash, pulse, 2 types of exponents, 2 types of S-curves), as well as, almost any arbitrary form which can be described formulary. The program operation in equipment operation compatibility mode is also available.

The software system for AKTAKOM APS-3320LS remote controlled DC power supply includes a software development kit (SDK). This SDK contains the device driver with all necessary functions for the power supply operation and represents dynamic-link library (DLL) Windows followed with the library header file in the C programming language, with LabWindows function tree and the tool library for LabVIEW which fully repeats it. Additionally (in contrast to APS-3xxxLx_SDK_Base Software Development Kit) it contains the examples of programming in the following development environment: Borland C++ Builder, MS Visual C++, NI LabWindows/CVI and NI LabVIEW.

  • 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.

    How to connect to the sync input of AKTAKOM APS-3xxxLS and APS-7xxxLS power supplies with remote control?

    Sync input is a 2.5 mm audio jack stereo. The counterpart is a 2.5 mm audio jack plug. The scheme of this plug for synchronization signaling, see pic. 1.

    Sync plug
    Pic. 1

    Pin1: Sync input
    Pin2: Reserved
    Pin3: Common wire

    Parameters of the synchronization control pulse are shown in pic. 2.

    Note! In APS-7306LS power supply the signal of pin 2 input of the sync connector is also used to reset network settings to default. APS-3xxxLS power supplies do not use this signal.

    How to check power supply network settings?
    1. Connect the power supply to the local network using LAN connector.
    2. Power on the device.
    3. Open any Internet browser and enter the IP-address of the power supply in its address bar.

      IP-address of the power supply

    4. You should see a window to enter the login assigned to the power supply with AKTAKOM Net Configurator (ANC) program. By default the login window already contains the default login. After entering the login click "OK".

    What are the advantages of APM21 Pro vs Light?

    We have added a number of new features to AKTAKOM Power Manager 21 Pro, trying to keep it simple and easy to use.

    Template management

    AKTAKOM laboratory power supplies can supply current with arbitrary parameters precisely set by the user, but in practice a number of parameters with fixed values are most often used - 1.5 Volts, 3.3, 9, 12 ... In APM21 Pro, you can make a list of your "favorite" values in advance voltage and current and then set them to the device with one click.

    Command list management

    Another important property of our power supplies is the ability to dynamically change the current output parameters. APM21 Pro can do this automatically. Set a list of commands to the device in advance, specifying the necessary parameters and time, save the list to a file and run it for automatic execution when you need it.

    Customizable user interface

    In addition to additional ways to control the device, the main window of the program also has a graph displaying the history of measurements received from the device. All this may seem redundant and cluttering for someone who plans to use the source for simple standard tasks. In this case, you can customize the user interface in a way that is convenient for you: hide and collapse all the blocks you don’t need with special buttons and leave only the ones you need.

    Saving data

    If your lab's power supply is used for research, you may need to review instrument operation later. Therefore, we saved the history of events (displayed in the Protocol window) and measurement data (displayed on the graph in the main window) to a file.
