    Hi. Maybe this is not the right forum but I was hoping for some directions.
    I'm looking for an open-frame power regulator which can regulate 0-120V (AC or DC) through a computer (USB, Serial).
    I need it to deliver up to 5 amps. Have some of you come across an unit like that?
    Optimistic regards

    Explain "through a computer (USB,Serial)" more ?
    Not sure what you are asking..
    Do you just want a 120VAC to 5VDC @5A open frame power supply?

    Hi Mcgyvr. Thanks for your reply, and sorry for not being clear.
    I want to be able to control the voltage through my pc. So if I want the output to be 50V, I tell the device to putput 50V. Do you see what I mean? Sorry for my bad English.

    Hi. Brilliant. Thank you very much. So that's what it's called :)

    Regarding open frame. I have space considerations in my lab so I was hoping to fit the device into at 19 inch rack I already have.
    I will look through the options and see what I can get.

    Again, thank you very much and have a nice day
    Best regards

    Well there you go.. Many are designed for 19" frames already..

    Just a FYI..
    "Open frame" in the power supply world would typically get you something like this..

    or this

    What you want is commonly called "rack mount" not open frame..
