Tektronix PWS2000 single channel regulated power supply series

Brief description of the series

When it is necessary to supply power to sensitive, low-noise circuits (sensors, ADCs, DACs, audio devices), it is best to use transformer regulated power supplies with linear output voltage stabilization. One of the best series of such power supplies is the Tektronix PWS2000. Devices of this series provide the level of output voltage ripple and noise not more than 1 mV RMS.

The Tektronix PWS2000 series includes 4 models of single-channel laboratory power supplies with adjustable voltage (up to 72 V) and current (up to 6 A). The maximum output power is in the range from 90 to 192 Watts. For detailed differences between the series models, see the interactive table. A full description of all the characteristics can be downloaded below on this page in the Documentation section.

Excellent Opportunities

With a large transformer and a quality linear (not pulsed) output voltage stabilization stage, the Tektronix PWS2000 series is powerful, versatile and efficient. The basic error for DC voltage is 0.05 %. The basic error for DC current is 0.2 %. The output current and voltage can be set with a resolution of 10 mA and 10 mV. Plus a large and bright display. And all this is complemented by traditional Tektronix reliability. For more information about linear (transformer) power supplies, see here.

Please note that Tektronix also has a more functional PWS4000 series of transformer regulated power supplies with the ability to compensate for the voltage drop in the connection wires and with a USB interface. This series has the same low noise level (1 mV RMS) and more features, but at a higher price.
