    Designed for use in the TEK TM5000 Series Mainframes, the Tektronix PS 5010 Programmable Power Supply provides a complete and rapid high performance solution for many system power supply applications. Its three supplies provide the most commonly used voltages, and the three digital displays automatically indicate all six voltage and current limit parameters. Automatic crossover from voltage to current limit and a powerful set of GPIB status reporting messages allow the user to be constantly aware of the PS 5010's status. The PS 5010's dual floating supply provides 0 V to + 32 V and 0 V to -32 V, both with respect to a common front-panel terminal. Or 0 V to 64 V across the terminals of both supplies together -- with currents up to 0.75 A throughout the total voltage range and 1.6 A below 15 V. The logic supply provides +4.5 V to +5.5 V with respect to ground, with currents to 3 A. Or, the three supplies can be independently programmed for separate voltage and current limits, and displayed in the LED display.

    ==============================================
    The PS5010 features dual floating supplies and a logic supply. The dual floating supplies provide 0 to 32 V @ 0.75 A and 1.6 A below 15 V. The logic supply provides +4.5 V to +5.5 V @ 3 A. The unit has an accuracy of 0.5% and features programmable current limits, three independent digital displays, and automatic crossover. The PS5010 is designed for use in the TM5000-Series Power Modules and is completely programmable.
    ===================================================
    The PS 5010 Programmable Power Supply is a two-wide TM 5000 module that provides a complete and rapid high performance solution for many system power supply applications. It's three supplies provide the most commpnly used voltages, and the three digital displays automatically indicate all six voltage and current limit parameters. Automatic crossover from voltage to current limit and a powerful set of GPIB status reporting commands allow the user to be constantly aware of the power supplys status. Also, the user can program the output on or off and lock out the front panel controls with the GPIB commands.

    The PS 5010's dual floating supply provides 0 to +32 V and 0 to -32 V at up to 0.75 A (1.6 A to 15V). The logic supply provides +4.50V to +5.5 V at 3A. The three supplies can be independently programmed for voltage and current limits. Since the PS 5010's microprocessor monitors the voltage and current feedback loops of each supply, a simulation of true DMM output monitoring of all supplies is possible. Each display indicates the true output voltage or current of that supply. Whenever a load change causes a supply to change modes from constant voltage to constant current (or vice-versa), the display also changes to show the know current limit or voltage value. This condition can be reported over the bus via an interrupt when the PS 5010 is in the remote state.

    With it's English like GPIB commands, performance and combination of features, the PS 5010 Triple Power Supply reduces both software and hardware system development.
