Stemming from the design and manufacture demands of electronic industries, GW Instek offers diverse power supply product lines to meet user's demand for a variety of applications. Based on different needs, the product lines can be divided into several categories including DC Power Supply, AC Power Source, DC Electronic Load and Source Measure Unit.
What is DC power used for?
DC (direct current) power is used in a variety of applications, including:
Overall, DC power is used in a wide range of applications where a steady, reliable source of power is required.
What is AC and DC power supply?
AC (alternating current) and DC (direct current) are two different types of electrical power supplies.
AC power supply provides electrical energy that periodically changes direction, meaning that the voltage and current regularly reverses direction. This type of power supply is commonly used in homes and buildings to power electrical devices, as well as in the distribution of electrical power over long distances. AC power is usually generated by electric power stations using rotating machines such as turbines or generators.
DC power supply provides electrical energy that flows in one direction, meaning that the voltage and current remain constant in one direction. This type of power supply is used in many electronic devices and systems, as well as in transportation, such as electric cars, buses, and trains. DC power can be obtained from batteries, solar panels, or DC power supplies.
The main difference between AC and DC power is the direction and frequency of the voltage and current. While AC power periodically changes direction, DC power remains constant in one direction. AC power is more commonly used for power transmission, while DC power is more commonly used for electronic devices and systems.
