In this section you will find useful information about interfaces, options, accessories, output cable and more.

A lot of FuG power supplies are available with different from the standard design or equipment. Some of the most common options and modifications we will introduce at this page. Furthermore customer specific units with different technical data, with different mechanical construction, with customer defined interface or with extended features are available even for a qty. of one.

Analog programming:

Analog programming

With this option voltage and current of the power supply can be set by analog voltages (0-10V) or by external potentiometers. Monitor signals of voltage and current (0-10V) available on the programming terminal. An external "ON"-command enables to release or lock the regulation loop.Selection of manual operation or external programming is possible by Knobs or (for older units)a switch on the front panel. This option is also available as a retrofit set for later upgrade of your unit.


Commander

An external "ON"-command enables to release or lock the regulation loop. Selection of manual operation or external programming is possible by Knobs or (for older units)a switch on the front panel. This option is also available as a retrofit set for later upgrade of your unit.

Usually the "0V" of the programming voltage is connected to one of the outputs of the unit. If this is not wanted, the unit may be equipped with the floating analog programming. Isolation for this version max. 2 kV DC with respect to the unit output, 30 V DC with respect to ground.

On request we deliver a fibre optical isolation up to 200 kV.
For the most models the floating analog programming can be installed later at our site. On request please ask us! Please indicate in that case the serial number of the appropriate unit.


Remote control:
Top

Remote control

Remote control as separate box with meters and adjustments to be connected to the analog programming.


Digital Interfaces:
Top

Digital Interfaces are available with the PROBUS V interface system as RS232, RS422, IEEE488, USB, Ethernet or Profibus DP.

Polarity reversal:
Top

Polarity reversal:
By this switch the polarity of the output voltage of a high voltage power supply (Nearly all of the HCP, HCL, HCN, HCK, HYN) can be changed. For HCP units with polarity reversal switch, the polarity can be selected by pressing a knob at the front plate and also by remote control via an (optional) analogue programming or via a digital interface. Example HCN: Example HCL: For the most models polarity reversal can be retrofitted later at our site. On request please ask us!

Higher stability:
Top

Voltage and/or current regulation with better long-term stability and lower temperature coefficient. With a lot of models (not for HCN7E, HCE, MCL and HCL), using components with a better specification and lower temperature coefficient the following data can be reached:

Stability over 8 hours under constant conditions: <±1 x 10-5
Temperature coefficient: <±1 x 10-5 /K within the specified temperature range
On request we can achieve for certain units even a higher stability.
These options can be incorporated only in new units. A later modification is not possible.

Lower output ripple:
Top

On several series a lower ripple can be achieved by better smoothing. This option can be supplied only with new units. A later modification is not possible.

For an order with this option applies:
For MCP and HCP up to 35W:1 x 10-5 + 10mV p-p
For MCP and HCP 140W up to 700W:1 x 10-5 + 20mV p-p
For MCP and HCP from 1400W: 1 x 10-5 + 100mV p-p

Lower stored energy:
Top

Especially for the operation of gas discharge processes, arcs or similar loads with a negative dynamic resistance characteristic, the quantity of stored energy can be decreased by smaller output capacitors. Those units will have than a higher ripple up to 1%.

Digital meters with higher resolution:
Top

DVM

Instead of the standard DVM with a display of max."1999", DVM with higher resolution can be offered.


Display HCL

4½ digit meters instead of 3½ digit ones can be built in into all serial units. This replacement is also possible later at our site. 6 digit meters can only be installed in new units in combination with a higher stability. Units of MCP or HCP type are equipped as a standard with 4½ digit meters.


Higher adjustment resolution:
Top

Grob / Fein

By an additional ten-turn potentiometer for fine adjustment of current and/or voltage the resolution will be increased by a factor of 100. Adjustment range 0 - 99% and a window of approx. 1%. For even better adjustment resolution a decade switch (up to 5 decades) or a combination of decade switches with fine-tune potentiometers can be provided.


Power regulation with display and adjustment:
Top

Voltage Regulation

Besides the standard voltage regulation and current regulation, the units may be equipped with an additional regulation loop for constant power.


Internal impedance:
Top

For electronic simulation of a changing internal impedance of the unit (e.g. battery characteristic). The technical design is similar to the power regulation.

Preset indication:
Top

Sollwertanzeige

The preset values can be displayed by a button besides the appropriate meter. For units of MCP and HCP type this option is a standard.


Electronical sweep:
Top

Supervising on overcurrent/ high voltage flashover with signalization, shut down or spark counter.

Flashover sensor:
Top

Supervising on overcurrent/ high voltage flashover with signalization, shut down or spark counter.

Interlock loop:
Top

Interlockschleife

Interlock loop for supervising of the connected load (e.g. door contacts).

At interrupting the interlock loop, the unit will be shut down by disconnecting the mains. Only after pressing a "RESET"- button, the unit can be put into operation again.


Fast discharge of the output:
Top

Fast discharge of the output - e.g. together with the interlock loop.

Active down regulation:
Top

Active down regulation: for fast controlled decrease of the output voltage.

Different mains voltage and frequency:
Top

Different mains voltage and frequency: As a standard our units designed for a 230V, 50 Hz or 400V, 50Hz three phase mains input. But the most of our units can be modified for other mains values, like they are used in other countries.

Higher isolation:
Top

Higher isolation of the output and/or the mains input: For special applications (e.g. the operation at a high voltage platform) it may be that the standard isolation of the unit is not sufficient. We can deliver units with isolation up to > 200 kV.

Customer specific design of the power output:
Top

For several types of our units the output as a standard is at the rear plate. Optionally on request it can be arranged at the front as shown.
