CSI Bench Psu CC Mode Kit
|Ask a question about this product|
OUT OF STOCK RIGHT NOW, BUT I DO HAVE A BUNCH OF NEW PCB'S AWAITING ASSEMBLY........SO PLEASE NUDGE ME IF YOU WANT ONE!
A complete kit to convert CSI 3000 series bench power supplies to off-load CC (constant current) adjustable setting.
The standard functionality of these CSI power supplies is that the user cannot change the CC (constant current) setting without actually running at load, which makes it impossible to preset a control current.
This easy to fit kit allows the user to use the existing front panel buttons (UP/DOWN) to change the CC setting at any time on the LCD, on or off load.
All the parts are supplied to retro fit this kit to your own power supply and include:
Tested with my own CSI3003X5 & CSI3005XIII power supplies, but may possibly be used (subject to your testing) in other CSI and other similar branded power supplies.
Note: Dual channel CSI power supplies, such as the CSI3005XIII require two kits, one per channel.
The kit is fitted simply by snapping it onto plastic standoffs (existing holes within the PSU) and plugging it in. All thats then required is just the soldering of three wires to specific points on the existing control board inside the PSU.
The kit does not require any calibration (on the above power supplies anyway), but does has the facility to tweak the display by way of an on-board potentiometer if required. Note: By default this pot is turned all the way up for standard installation.
