|Model: DCS Series
Voltage: 8V - 600V
Current: 1A - 350A
Power: 1kW - 3kW
Overview: DC Programmable Switching Supplies
The DCS 3kW Series obsolescence was announced on September 30, 2022 with Last Time Buy until September 30, 2023, replaced with either the DLM 3k/4k Series or Asterion DC Series (depending on model/configuration). Contact Sales to confirm replacement options. The DCS 1kW and DCS 1.2kW Series products are not affected by this notification and will remain available.
The DCS Series of 1 kW, 1.2 kW and 3 kW programmable power supplies provides a highly reliable power platform. It utilizes unique packaging techniques to achieve continuous full output power (1 kW, 1.2 kW or 3 kW) in any volt/amp combination within the rated output voltage and current limits in a low profile chassis.
This DCS power supply family has an easy-to-use front panel with 10-turn potentiometers to adjust voltage and current settings that are displayed simultaneously. LEDs indicate overtemperature, remote programming, shutdown and over voltage protection, status and constant-voltage/current mode operation. The DCS 3 kW Models have push button control of the output standby mode, OVP reset, remote/local programming and preview status of voltage, current and OVP setpoints.
The Sorensen DCS family can also be controlled remotely. Four analog control modes are standard as well as isolated analog control (option). Computer control can be accomplished over IEEE488.2 GPIB (option) or LXI-compliant Ethernet (option).

DCS : Model Number Description
|Options and Accessories|
|M1||Factory configured for 115 VAC input (1 kW and 1.2 kW units only)|
|M9C||Internal IEEE-488/RS-232 Interface (can only support 12-bit slaves)|
|M13||Locking shafts (front panel potentiometers)|
|M32||Master/slave paralleling cable configured for two units|
|M33||Replace input connector with terminal block (3 kW only)|
|M51A||Isolated analog programming control of V/I/OVP and isolated V/I monitor outputs up to 500V relative to the supply’s return line. This isolation allows users to control power supplies not connected to a common ground. In addition, in systems with high ambient noise or with large ground loop currents the control ground can be isolated from the power ground eliminating problems.|
|M85||12-bit slave interface option for use with M9 or M130 master (3 ft. control cable included)|
|M102||Front panel binding posts for 1 kW or 1.2 kW, Models ≤30A, ≤100V. Not compatible with M9C, M85, M130, M131, M133, M135, M136|
|M130||LXI ™compliant 10/100 Base T Ethernet remote control master interface; includes web server for direct control of power supply via web browser (MS Internet Explorer 6.0 or later)|
|M131||16-bit slave interface option for use with a M130 master (3 ft. control cable included)|
|M133||Output disconnect and polarity reversal relays controlled via SCPI commands.
Limited to 1kW or 1.2 kW, ≤100V, ≤60A
|M135||M130 & M133 combination. Limited to 1kW or 1.2 kW, ≤100V, ≤60A|
|M136||M131 & M133 combination. Limited to 1kW or 1.2 kW, ≤100V, ≤60A 105-300-26:
