The R&S NGP800 DC power supply series, comprising five models with 400 W or 800 W, provides maximum power at a variety of operating points. The two or four 200 W outputs can each supply up to 64 V or up to 20 A. Electrically equivalent and galvanically isolated outputs can be wired in series or parallel for up to 250 V or 80 A. Synchronizing your outputs, performing waveform tests and logging data for in-depth analysis – all this becomes easy with the R&S NGP800 power supply series.
All R&S NGP800 power supplies include remote sense terminals, USB and a LAN interface. A user-installable GPIB interface, a digital trigger I/O, an analogue input and a wireless LAN interface are optional, making these instruments great on the bench or in an automated test system.

Boost your efficiency with quadcore power
The R&S NGP800 DC power supply series, comprising five models with 400 W or 800 W, provides maximum power at a variety of operating points. The two or four 200 W outputs can each supply up to 64 V or up to 20 A. Electrically equivalent and galvanically isolated outputs can be wired in series or parallel for up to 250 V or 80 A.
5″ high-resolution touch display
The large high-resolution touch display makes operation easy. Quickly navigate through the menus to access all functions and settings. Enter values much faster using the virtual keyboard instead of turning the knob.
The home screen gives you a clear overview of all your channels. Each channel can be selected for a more detailed view with a wide variety of additional information, such as statistics and icons indicating the status of set protection or special functions.
Parallel and serial operation
If your application requires more voltage or current, simply connect the outputs in series or parallel and get up to 250 V (R&S NGP824) or 80 A (R&S NGP804) – now you have the flexibility you always asked for.
Using the tracking function,voltage and current are adjusted on all selected channels simultaneously
Ramp function (EasyRamp)
To control inrush currents, some test setups require a continuously rising supply voltage instead of a rapid jump. Increase the output voltage continuously within a timeframe of 10 ms to 60 s with the EasyRamp function.
Arbitrary function (QuickArb)
Emulate the normal behaviors of your power subsystems early in the design process and simulate power problems for DUT design verification.
The QuickArb function lets you generate voltage and current sequences that vary over time with dwell times down to 1 ms. Load up to eight subgroup files into one sequence to create complex patterns
Improve your voltage regulation using remote sensing, regulating the output voltage directly at the DUT input terminals instead of the power supply’s output terminals.
The four-wire remote sensing compensates for voltage drops in the supply leads, especially in applications with high currents. The R&S NGP800 power supplies provide sense connections for each output at both the front and rear
Logging data is key to long- term monitoring, reviewing test setups and repeating test conditions when analyzing power behaviors or optimizing power consumption.
The R&S NGP800 power supplies simultaneously log voltage and current measurements over time on all outputs.
You can easily export the timestamped data as a .CSV file for reports and documentation.
The built-in measurements reduce the need for an external multimeter and simplify the setup. The separate voltage and current meters on each output give a resolution of 1 mV and 0.5 mA over the full output range of 64 V and 20 A, respectively.
The integrated statistics show the min./max. and average values for power, voltage and current as well as an energy count.
Protecting your DUT is crucial in limit testing. The R&S NGP800 power supplies include overcurrent protection (OCP), overvoltage protection (OVP) and overpower protection (OPP).
The internal overtemperature protection (OTP) switches the power supply off if a thermal overload is imminent.
You can set the maximum current, voltage and power separately for each channel. If an active protection function trips, you are alerted by a beeping sound and the corresponding symbol flashing on the status bar.
