E36100 Series Programmable DC Power Supplies


Keysight E36100 DC Power Supplies


Accurate, reliable powerFront Panel
The E36100 Series is the latest addition to Keysight’s industry standard family of bench DC power supplies, backed with Keysight’s standard 3-year warranty. Power your DUT with excellent voltage and current programming and readback accuracy. Use the power supply’s highly accurate low-current measurement feature for demanding measurements. Protect your DUT with built-in overvoltage and overcurrent protection, and count on the built-in overtemperature protection
to keep your power supply safe.

Excellent front-panel usability
The clean design of the E36100 Series front-panel lets you become productive with the unit very quickly. The easy-to-use rotary knob and keypad interface allows you to set the output at your desired resolution quickly and easily, with digit-by-digit control. You can store and recall up to 10 complete power supply setups from non-volatile memory in order to quickly change instrument states. The output on/off key quickly turns the output on and off.

Fast, industry-standard programming
Every E36100 DC Power Supplies Series model ships standard with both LAN (LXI Core) and USB (TMC488). The easy-to-use SCPI (Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments) programming language lets you create fast and simple programs with transient response faster than 50 μs and fast command processing time–less than
10 ms. You can also program the instrument with the power supply’s Interchangeable Virtual Instruments (IVI) driver. Use the Keysight IO Libraries Suite ( to accelerate your programming. The IO Libraries’ instrument-centric view and auto-discovery of instruments get you connected to your instrument quickly.

Web Interface




Simple, powerful soft front panel
When you cannot be near your DUT, open your browser and control the instrument via the power supply’s bullt-in Web interface, with a look and feel that replicates the front-panel experience.


BenchVue control and visualization
BenchVue software for the PC makes it simple to connect,
control, and view Keysight power supplies simultaneously with other Keysight bench instruments without programming.

  • Visualize the outputs of multiple power supplies simultaneously
  • Log data, capture screen shots, and save a system state– Recall a past state of your bench to replicate results
  • Export measurement data in desired format fast
  • Quickly access manuals, drivers, FAQs and videos
  • Monitor and control bench from mobile devices

The power supply app within BenchVue lets you control DC power supplies, visualize voltage and current output, log data, and annotate captured data (included in BV0000A, available as a free download at Upgrade to the Pro version (BV0003A) for unrestricted data logging with limit checking and status alerts. Use the companion BenchVue Mobile app to monitor and respond to long-running tests from anywhere.

Real Time Spectrum Analyser RTSA7500 from BNC

Berkeley Nucleonics PC-Controlled Real Time Spectrum Analysers (RTSA)


The BNC Model RTSA7500 Real Time Spectrum Analyser has all the standard features of a spectrum analyzer such as frequency controls, marker functions and multi-trace functionality. It also includes a real-time trigger mode for measuring complex data signals such as Wi-Fi and LTE along with markers for tracking specific frequencies.


Real-time triggering is enabled by sophisticated FPGA-based digital signal processing within the RTSA7500 and enables the capture of elusive, time-varying signals across an instantaneous bandwidth of up to 100 MHz. The Model RTSA7500 is a powerful and cost-effective solution for your real time spectrum analyser needs in the lab, on the manufacturing floor or out in the field.


Real Time Spectrum Analyser


  • Real-time spectrum
  • Real-time spectrogram
  • Real-time power spectral density (persistence)
  • Real-Time Triggering
  • Real-Time Recording and Playback

Berkeley Nucleonics Real Time Spectrum Analyser

Extensibility of the RTSA7500 Real Time Spectrum Analyser  for additional functionality and OEMs


  • 10 MHz In for external references and a 10 MHz Out reference for multi-unit synchronization
  • Analog I/Q Out enables OEM high speed digitizers and post-processing software tools
  • GPIO for external triggers and exterior modules such as antenna switches, downconverters, and GPS
  • 10/100/1000 Ethernet port for control and networking the RTSA7500
  • +12 V DC power input allowing drive testing with automobile 12 V DC sources and personal mobility with an external 12 Volt battery
  • External support for 80 MHz and 160 MHz RTBW (optional)
  • External Local Oscillator inputs for phase-coherent radio front-ends (not shown and optional)


SpectrogramSpectrogram View
Along with the standard spectrum graph which plots Power versus Frequency the user can select the Spectrogram View. The Spectrogram View provides a 3-dimensional view of the spectrum adding the dimension of Time. Time zero is at the top of the Spectrogram view and measurements in the past scroll down. The color indicates the relative magnitude of the Power. In this case, white being the highest power. Several palettes are available to optimize for best viewing depending on the signals to be evaluated. By looking at Time, one can see the periodicity of any given signal.


Power Spectral Density

Power Spectral Density Display
The Power Spectral Density Display is commonly called the Persistence Display. Both names give a partial description of what the display does. The color is an indication of how dense or how often the signal is present at the respective power level. In this case yellow represents the level the signal is at most of the time. And signals persist on the screen for a few seconds before fading out allowing you to see signals that come too fast to view in the spectrum graph. One can see the Wi-Fi signal, the Bluetooth Signals, and the Microwave Oven Signals that were present just a few seconds earlier.


IQ PlotsI /Q Plots
The I/Q plot consists of two plots, the I/Q Constellation (if available) on the left, and the I/Q Time Domain on the right. The Constellation data displays the In-phase (I data) vs. the Quadrature (Q data). The Time domain plot shows a trace for the In-phase (I data in green) and a trace for the Quadrature (Q data in red, if available in the mode).


Make measurements locally or remotely Measurement can be made remotely via the Internet around the globe. Ideal for remote monitoring applications.


  • Up to six traces are available as Trace Normal, Trace Average, Max Hold, and Min Hold.
  • Twelve Markers are available as Normal (tracking), Delta, and Fixed with Peak Search functions that can be assigned to any trace.
  • The Real-Time Level Trigger only captures signals over a certain level and is useful for viewing signals over the Internet.
  • For remote applications, Record data on the local PC and then use Playback to view the data without any Internet latency.
  • The widescreen view of a laptop or PC monitor enables enhanced viewing not available on instruments with built-in screens.
  • The intuitive GUI display makes it easy to operate for anyone familiar with a benchtop spectrum analyzer.
