The Keysight Technologies, Inc. N5700 Series system DC power supplies give you just the right performance — at just the right price — in a compact (1 U) package. This family of affordable 750 W and 1500 W single-output programmable DC power supplies consists of 24 models for simple DC power applications. They provide stable output power, built-in voltage and current measurement, and output voltage and current from 6 V to 600 V and 1.3 A to 180 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 N5700 provides up to 1500 W in a small space-saving 1 U-high, 19-inch-wide package. Its air vents are in the front, side, and rear (not on the top or bottom), so you can stack other instruments directly above or below it to save valuable rack space.

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 N5700 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 N5700 Series power supplies come standard with GPIB, Ethernet/LAN, and USB 2.0 interfaces giving you the flexibility to use your I/O interface of choice today and in the future. The N5700 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. Using the Web browser, you can set up, monitor, and operate the N5700 remotely.

Easy system integration and configuration

To simplify system development, the N5700 comes standard with IVI-COM drivers. The N5700 supports the easy-to-use SCPI (Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments).

Command compatibility

The N5700 includes a compatibility command set for the Xantrex XFR series power supplies, the Sorensen DLM series power supplies, and the Keysight 603x series power supplies. This simplifies system integration when converting to the N5700. For a comparison of these products, see application notes:

Flexible configuration: connect multiple units in parallel and series

Should you need greater output power, the N5700 series power supplies give you the flexibility to connect in parallel up to four similarly rated units for greater output current and connect two similarly rated units 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 resistances of 0 to 5 kΩ or 0 to 10 kΩ.

Universal AC input

All N5700 models have universal AC input so they can be automatically operated from any AC mains input voltage worldwide. They can be operated from line voltages of 85 – 265 Vac, 47 to 63 Hz, with no switch to set or fuses to change when you switch from one voltage standard to another. They also provide power factor correction.

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 N5700 into a test rack by providing all the necessary hardware to rack mount an N5700 series power supply in only 1 U of rack space.
