N8700 Series System DC Power Supplies

Data Sheets

The Keysight Technologies, Inc. N8700 series system DC power supplies give you just the right performance — at just the right price — in a compact (2 U) package. This family of affordable 3300 W and 5000 W single-output programmable DC power supplies consists of 21 models for simple DC power applications.

They provide stable output power, built-in voltage and current measurement, and output voltage and current from 8 V to 600 V and 5.5 A to 400 A.

These economical supplies offer many system-ready features like multiple standard I/O interfaces to simplify and accelerate test-system development for R&D, design validation, and manufacturing engineers in the aerospace/defense, automotive, component, and communications industries.

Small, high-density package saves you rack space

The N8700 provides up to 5200 W in a small space-saving 2 U-high, 19-inch-wide package. Its air vents are in the front and rear (not on the top or bottom), so you can stack other instruments directly above or below it to save valuable rack space.


  • 21 Models: 3300 W and 5000 W output power
  • Up to 600 V and up to 400 A
  • Small, high density 2 U package
  • Built-in voltage and current measurement
  • Full protection from over-voltage and over-current
  • Flexible AC input voltage options
  • LAN, USB, and GPIB interfaces standard

Easy front-panel operation

You can quickly and easily operate the power supply with its rotary knobs and buttons. Using the front-panel controls, you can make coarse or fine adjustments of output voltage and current, protection settings, and set power-on states (last setting memory or factory default setting). The output voltage and current are displayed simultaneously, and LED indicators show power supply status and operating modes. You can lock the front panel controls to protect against accidental power-supply parameter changes.

Extensive device protection

To safeguard your device from damage, the N8700 Series power supplies provide over-temperature, over-current and over-voltage protection (OVP) to shut down the power supply output when a fault condition occurs. They also offer an under-voltage limit (UVL) that prevents adjustment of the output voltage below a certain limit. The combination of UVL and OVP capabilities lets you create a protection window for sensitive load circuitry.

Simplify system connections

The N8700 Series power supplies comes standard with GPIB, Ethernet/LAN, and USB 2.0 interfaces giving you the flexibility to use your I/O interface of choice today and safeguard your test setup for the future. The N8700 is fully compliant with the LXI Class C specification.

Remote access and control

The built-in Web server provides remote access and control of the instrument via a standard browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. This control goes above and beyond the LXI specification, giving users the ability to monitor and control the instrument from anywhere. Using the Web browser, you can set up, monitor and operate the N8700 remotely.

Easy system integration and configuration

To simplify system development, the N8700 comes standard with IVI-COM drivers. The N8700 supports the easy-to-use SCPI (Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments).

Flexible configuration: connect multiple units in parallel or series

Should you need greater output power, the N8700 series power supplies give you the flexibility to connect in parallel up to four identical units (same model number) for greater output current or connect two identical units (same model number) in series for greater output voltage (see output terminal isolation information).

Analog programming and monitoring

The output voltage and current can be programmed from zero to full scale by either an analog voltage 0 to 5 V or 0 to 10 V or by resistance of 0 to 5 kΩ or 0 to 10 kΩ.

Flexible AC input voltage options

The N8700 models offer flexible AC input voltage options. Every N8700 model can be purchased with either a 208 V 3-phase or 400 V 3-phase voltage input option. The 3.3 kW models have the additional option of a 230 V single-phase AC input voltage. Choose the one that best fits your operating environment. They also provide power factor correction.

* Please choose carefully the AC input voltage option for your N8700 power supply. The AC input voltage cannot be changed without returning the unit to Keysight and placing a new order.

Rack mounting

The rack mount ears and handles are provided standard with every unit. In addition, the N5740A rack mount slide kit makes it easy to integrate an N8700 into a test rack by providing all the necessary hardware to rack mount an N8700 series power supply in only 2 U of rack space. The N5740A rack mount slide kit is the same kit used with the N5700 series.
