Its portfolio comprises of benchtop, modular and rack-mounted industrial power subsystems, including DC programmable, DC linear, DC benchtop and DC modular power supplies. Each offers outputs from 30W to 150kW, output voltages range from 5V to 1,000V and output currents from 1A to 8,000A.

Key products in the Sorensen range include:

  • The DLM600 375–600W half rack programmable DC power supply series: this series provides a highly stable, continuously variable output voltage and current for a broad range of applications. Features include remote control, analogue programming, LXI Compliant Ethernet LAN / RS-232C, IEEE-488.2 / RS-232C.
  • The DCS 1–3kW general purpose power supply series: the DCS series uses packaging techniques to achieve continuous full output power. The highly reliable power platform can be controlled remotely with high programming resolution. Other features include an Ethernet interface, constant voltage and current mode, remote sensing, analog control and monitoring.
  • The XG 1500-1700W 1U programmable DC power supply series: offers power density for test, production, lab, OEM and quality assurance applications. The XG series features Standard Digital and Isolated analog interfaces, universal AC input with power factor correction, built-in sequencing, programmable fold-back protection delay and “Green” Sleep Mode.

Commenting James McGregor, Global Head of Test and Tools at Farnell said: “Sorensen is renowned for their comprehensive range, from benchtop and modular power supplies to rack-mounted industrial power subsystems, and we are delighted to be the only high service distributor in EMEA to be selling their great range. We continue to expand our product and service offering to ensure our customers are fully supported with all their design, test and production needs."
