Manufacturer's Description:

The DCS Family of 1 kW, 1.2 kW and 3 kW programmable power supplies incorporate current mode switching rates up to 100 kHz in high power density, low profile chassis. Utilizing unique packaging techniques, the DCS Family provides continuous full output power (1 kW, 1.2 kW or 3 kW) in any volt/amp combination within the rated output voltage and current limits.

This family has 10-turn potentiometers to adjust voltage and current settings that are displayed simultaneously. LEDs indicate overtemperature, remote programming, shutdown and overvoltage protection, status and constant-voltage/current mode operation.
