A very large working range is performed by modules fitted, for example, up to 10 current ranges. Therefore, the same module can either supply a large current of 5 amps, and later, measure a leakage current of a few nano-amps, while performing a good accuracy in both conditions.
Voltage or current range switching is proceeded only while source output is off. In addition, automatic selection of the best range can be obtained while setting the new voltage or current value.
When a device biased by several DC sources requires a sequential settling, each source can be switched on and off according to programmable delays. When a device requires dedicated settling time to obtain full operating conditions, threshold control and memorization can be enabled according to programmable delays.
Transient immunity to mains switching :
Each Bilt module is fitted with an output short-circuit relay.
Whenever the source is stopped, a relay shorts the output to ground. This avoids any transient voltage at the output during mains switching and internal circuitry recovery.
The DC sources use a set of capacitors to store enough energy to supply all the internal electronic parts for at least 50ms after the mains cut-off. Then, if the mains is cut off while operating, the Bilt system performs a complete and safe shutdown. In addition, the date of the mains interruption is memorized in a history file. The shutdown of light loads is proceeded according to the programmed stop delays.
- The Bilt DC sources designed for electronic component testing deliver an output referenced to the chassis common ground. It floats within a small gap of ±1,4V round the mains earth. This scheme is very efficient to avoid any ESD transient when connecting sensitive devices.
Then, each output regulator uses the 4 wire connection to counteract any ground voltage offset. These sources are bipolar, and a negative voltage is obtained without stopping by inverting the voltage setting.
- The recently designed DC sources deliver an output isolated from the chassis common ground. This enhances the AC performances and enlarges the application domain.
Most of the Bilt DC sources are fitted with a programmable over-voltage protection. This is useful for both the modules and the connected device, especially when mixing high and low voltage signals. The instantaneous protective clamping is performed by a thyristor which shorts the output to ground.
Moreover, each module has programmable thresholds on read-back measurements, checked by the on-board software every 2ms (typical value). They can just enable a warning message, or they can trigger the sequential cut-off of a complete group of modules.
