Versatile Power Inc., a technology leader in the design and manufacture of custom electronic subsystems announces the new line of BENCH 600 W programmable power supplies. The Versatile Power BENCH series are compact, programmable, DC power supplies and are nearly half the cost compared to the industry’s leading producer of power supplies. The BENCH power supply measures just 1.73" (44 mm) High x 8.82" (224 mm) wide x 10.30"  (262 mm) deep and weighs only 5.8 lbs. (2.6 Kg).

Versatile Power is currently offering six models of these U.S. built supplies with available power output up to 600 W. Additional features include: the lowest price per watt; 75 percent smaller in size than a leading competitor; high voltage output – up to 400 V; full digital control – the fastest and most accurate available; SCPI compliant USB with LabVIEW driver and analog control ports; digital encoders for excellent reliability and accuracy; and integral digital remote sense – where no additional wires are required. The embedded 12-bit D/A and A/D converters provide very accurate controlling and reporting of both voltage and current, making BENCH the ideal solution for bench and ATE applications. The built-in LCD on the front panel simultaneously shows both voltage and current readings, along with ease of setup and complete power supply status information.

“The development of the BENCH series is a direct result of our searching for digital, compact, low-cost programmable power supplies capable of high output voltages. There was nothing available,” commented Jerry Price, CEO of Versatile Power. “Versatile Power's BENCH programmable power supplies now provide a perfect solution for a wide range of applications within the high technology arena of R&D, production and testing.”
