Adjustable Benchtop Power Supply for Students & Hobbyists
The XY-SK80 PSU is a small but super versatile adjustable bench power supply. It is small enough to fit in your hand but can do the job of an old-school bench supply of 3 times the price and 10 times the weight. It packs extra functions that you wouldn’t find in any bench power supply, like battery charging and monitoring total power (watts), energy (joules), capacity/charge (Ah) and running time (up-time).
The output voltage is adjustable between 0.6V and 36V, with a current of up to 5A. The XY-SK80 can operate in normal voltage-controlled (CV) or current-controlled (CC) mode where the current can be set/limited in 1mA steps – also known as a constant current source. It can supply output power of up to 80W (e.g. 20V @ 4A) and boasts an efficiency of 88% – so there is very little heat being generated.
The user interface is simple and elegant, consisting of a bright backlit LCD and a digital knob with turn-to-adjust and press-to-select function.
As far as extra functionality goes the XY-SK80 will not disappoint. It can be powered from any DC source, even a USB port, and output any voltage (converting it up or down as needed). Use it with a USB power bank for a fully portable solution. From the display, you not only see the voltage and current but can also view the power being consumed by your device (voltage x current) as well as running time (in hours and minutes), energy and charge (in Ah) consumed over the operating time. You can even set limits to any one of the above and the XY-SK80 will automatically switch off when the limit is reached.
You will not easily damage your XY-SK80 since it has protection against reverse-voltage, short-circuit, over-voltage, over-current, reverse-current and over-temperature with a cooling fan that automatically comes on.
Use it as a portable lab power supply on your desk, as a battery charger with automatic shut-off or in the constant-current mode as a direct LED driver.
Together with the ET8102 Multimeter, and the DSO150 Student Oscilloscope, this power supply offers you a complete test bench for your engineering studies or professional engineering desk. Purchase the complete Student Pack at a discounted price.

DC Adapter Specifications:
The XY-SK80 PSU can be used with any suitable DC power source with an output of between 6V and 36V DC.
We have upgraded the PSU with a BNC connector for the power adapter so that you can easily swap out the adapter you would like to use, with no need for wiring in the adapter.
You now have the option to purchase a 24W Adapter or an 84W Adapter to use with your PSU. You will need to order them separately as the XY-SK80 does not come with a power adapter.
Power Supply Package Includes:
XY-SK80 Adjustable Bench Power Supply, Red & Black Banana-Alligator clip Cables, User manual.
Please note that you need to purchase the 24W or 84W power adapter separately. You can find them under Accessories.
