Mainframe Power Supply Units

A453x Power Supply Units

The Power Supply Unit (PSU) is available in three versions: Primary, Optional Single and Optional Double.

  • The Primary PSU (A4531) is the standard SYx527 power supply block. It includes the SERVICE and 600 WPSU within a single slot module. Each SY4527/SY5527 includes one A4531 Primary Power Supply.
  • The Optional Single PSU provides an additional 600W of power in a single slot module.
  • The Optional Double PSU provides an additional 1200W of power in a single slot module.

Overview

The Power Supply Unit (PSU) is also available in three versions: Primary, Optional Single, Optional Double.

The Primary PSU (A4531) is the standard SY527 power supply clock. It includes the SERVICE and 600W PSU within a single slot module. Each SY4527/SY5527 includes one A4531 Primary Power Supply.

Note that the PSU will be providing power to the boards installed into the mainframe as well as to the motherboard control electronics (CPU). When configuring the SYx527 power output customers should take this factor into consideration. For some applications, especially those which include Low Voltage/High Amperage boards, the power requirement must be carefully considered to avoid failures and maximum component life expectancy. For configuration questions or concerns we recommend that you contact your CAEN representative and/or technical support.

The Optional Single PSU provides an additional 600W of power in a single slot module. The Optional Double PSU provides an additional 1200W of power in a single slot module.

Primary PSU – 600 W
  • This is the basic building block of the SY4527, SY5527, and SY4527LC
  • 400W version included with SY5527LC
Optional Single PSU – 600 W
  • This booster power supply adds 600W of power in a single slot module to either the SY4527 or SY5527 Mainframe System
  • This is an optional item which may be ordered separately
Optional Double PSU – 1200 W
  • This booster power supply adds 1200W of power in a single slot module to either the SY4527 or SY5527 Mainframe System
  • This is an optional item which may be ordered separately

Note: In SY4527 the max number of PSU which can be installed is 4 (1 Primary and 3 Optional). In case the SY4527 is equipped with LCD display the max number is 2 (1 Primary and 1 Optional). In SY5527 the max number of PSU which can be installed is 2 (1 Primary and 1 Optional).

Universal Multichannel System - Mainframes

Modularity, Compatibility, Connectivity, Usability and Solidity are the keywords of the system design. The Mainframes have been specifically designed to power all detector technologies found in modern Physics Experiments, such as photomultipliers, wire chambers, streamers tubes, silicon detectors and others.

The systems are modular, flexible and match not only the requirements of major experiments with large number of channels but also the practical needs of test laboratories, where simple manual operations on a limited number of channels are often desired.

Software

A complete set of Software Tools is available (free download) to control CAEN Universal Multichannel Power Supply Systems, from low level libraries to graphical application software:

CAEN, in collaboration with CERN, has developed an OPC server which allows control of its power supply systems by any OPC compliant client application.
HiVoCS HiVoCS is a Web Interface available on any SY4527-SY5527 CPU. This Interface can be accessed directly via browser without installing any additional software.
EPICS IOC Mainframes CPUs integrates an EPICS Input / Output Controller (IOC) that provides access to the Process Variables using the Channel Access Protocol.
CAEN HV Wrapper Library It is a set of ANSI C functions bundled in a library, providing the software developer an unified software interface for the control of all the CAEN Power Supply products
GECO2020 CAEN General Control SW for High Voltage Boards and Systems. it can manage and control CAEN HV power supplies in any form factor as if they were an unique device.
