Series BOP Inductive Load Models
Kepco has introduced an option (identified by suffix L) to optimize 200W (except BOP 200-1M) and 400W BOP models for driving inductive loads. This option makes the BOP more suitable for a wide variety of applications such as motor testing, testing of magnetic components (coils, speakers, etc.), industrial applications with inductive loads, driving CRT coils, cryogenic applications and powering correcting magnets for medical imaging applications or particle accelerators. |
BOP L option units are designed to operate in a stable manner in Current or Current Limit Mode for loads up to 1 Henry. They are also stable with any R-L series load combination.
All specifications of the unit in voltage mode are unchanged from the standard model. All specifications listed below are for L option models in Current Mode. All other specifications are identical to the standard BOP.
In current mode the bandwidth of the L option BOP is reduced modestly when operating with a resistive load. Correspondingly, the rise and fall time of the unit is increased somewhat (model dependent). Further, it is possible to reduce the bandwidth in current mode in a predictable way, using one customer installed component on the rear programming connector of the BOP.

(1) All specifications listed are for inductive load models in Current Mode.
If the load impedance at the working frequency multiplied by the peak value of current equals the voltage limit setting, it is recommended that the output voltage be kept below the voltage limit setting to avoid inducing a large distortion of output current. If the voltage limit is reached, the units bandwidth can be reduced by connecting an external film capacitor between pins 16 and 18 of the unit's programming connector (PC 12). The table below shows the effect that adding the external capacitor has on the 3dB bandwidth for resistive, resistive-inductive or inductive loads, with less than 10% tolerance (excluding the capacitor tolerance).
