Itech IT6000C series bidirectional power supplies

The Itech IT6000C series bidirectional power supplies are programmable bi-directional power supplies for higher power with special features. This DC power supply is bi-directional and can supply and consume power. Switching from source to sink is seamless. In addition there is the multitude of interfaces that are standard on the IT6000C, the battery test and emulation functions, the extensive solar array simulation for PV inverter test and the stability of this power supply at varying voltages and loads.


From 5 kW to 144 kW, the IT6000C series comprises more than 40 models. The maximum output voltage is 2250V and the maximum current is 2040A. Due to the power flex range of voltage and current, the maximum power of the IT6000C is very multifunctional.

The IT6000C family offers fast rise and fall times and programmable output resistance. This is useful when emulating batteries, among other things. The IT6000C models are designed for continuous sink/source applications such as automotive electronics, solar panel I-V curve simulation, DC motors and batteries. If this bi-directional power supply works as a load, the power consumed by the DUT is regenerated for feed back into the grid.

A classic two-quadrant power supply shows a jump and discontinuity at the transitions between positive and negative current. The IT6000C series is a fast two-quadrant power supply with CC/CV priority function to achieve a fast current transfer between the power supply mode and the electronic load mode, to switch quickly and seamlessly between sourcing and sinking power. This makes it suitable for measurements on fast battery charging and discharging without sacrificing accuracy.

The up/downtime of the IT6000C power supply is below 15..30ms depending on the load. The transient response time is less than 2ms. Modified setpoints or loads are processed quickly without overshoot. For higher power levels, several units can be connected in parallel in Master-Slave mode. The excellent performance is maintained. The units are easily programmable and of course have a List mode for storing, calling and executing program steps.

The IT6000C series power supplies offer built-in test curves for automotive voltages and test curves to support the simulation function for testing the (solar panel I-V) voltage curves with the optional SAS1000 software.

The IT6000C series power supplies are OVP, OCP, OPP and OTP protected and come standard with USB, CAN, LAN and digital IO interface.
