14585A Control and Analysis Software for Advanced Power Supplies

Important Note

The 14585A software is available to download free of charge. However, a license is required when connecting the 14585A software to any of the supported instruments (listed below). The license resides inside the instrument, not on the PC, and is specific to the instrument’s model number and serial number. Any copy of the 14585A software can connect to any supported instrument as long as the instrument has a license installed in it. See “How to Order a License” below for more information. The PathWave BenchVue BV9200 software offers the same functionality as the 14585A software with an updated user interface, new advanced data analysis features, and automation capability Find more information, New BV9200 Control and Analysis Software

Try the software for free with the 30-day trial license.


  • Provides easy access to the advanced features of the supported instruments
  • Control any combination of four N6705 mainframes and/or Advanced Power System (APS) N7900 Series dynamic DC power supplies and/or RP7900 Series Regenerative Power System
  • Control any of the over 30 N6700 DC power modules when installed in the N6705 DC Power Analyzer
  • Control and analyze data from up to four N6705 mainframes at once; that’s up to 16 power supplies simultaneously
  • Four modes of operation: scope (short-term waveform capture), data logger (long-term waveform capture), CCDF (statistical analysis), and ARB (waveform creation)
  • Enhanced control and analysis of data – use familiar PC controls and large display
  • Graphical user software - no programming required
  • Accurately capture current drain measurements from seconds to days at up to 200,000 measurements per second (in scope mode) directly to a PC
  • Advanced marker readout (Min, Avg, Max, RMS, Peak-to-Peak, Charge/Energy)
  • Easily create complex waveforms to stimulate or load down a DUT by inputting a formula, choosing from built-in, or importing waveform data
  • Capture a waveform, then “play” it back - use scope or data logger to capture, then use the power supply’s source/sink function to reproduce it
  • Data log measurements directly to the PC
  • Perform statistical analysis of power consumption
  • Export data to a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet or text file
  • Name and choose colors for waveform traces for easy identification
