For instructions on how to use the DC Power Supply and modify its settings, see Section 3 (“General Operation”) of the Reference Manual. Below are instructions for powering the DC Power Supply and some basic instructions excerpted from the manual.

Powering the Triple Channel DC Power Supply

  1. Make sure the green POWER switch on the front panel is in the off position.
  2. Connect the power cord to the back of the power supply, then plug the power cord into an outlet.
  3. Disconnect any devices from the power supply before turning it on.
  4. Push the green POWER switch on the front panel to turn on the instrument on. You should see the display on the front panel turn on.
  5. To turn the instrument off, push the POWER switch again so that is in in the off position.

Set the voltage output or voltage limit for a specific channel

You may set the voltage limit from 0 V to the maximum voltage rating shown on the instrument nameplate. To set the voltage limit, do the following:

  1. The position of the cursor determines which channel will be adjusted. If the cursor is not located on the correct channel, select the correct channel by pushing the appropriate channel select button.
  2. Push V-set.
  3. Use the numeric buttons and push Enter to set the voltage limit. You can also use the up, down, 
right and left arrow buttons.

Set the current output or current limit for a specific channel

You may set the current limit from 0 A to the maximum current value of each model. The maximum current rating is shown on the instrument nameplate. To set the current limit, do the following:

  1. The position of the cursor determines which channel will be adjusted. If the cursor is not located in the correct channel, select the correct channel by pushing the appropriate channel select button.
  2. Push I-set.
  3. Use the numeric buttons and push Enter to set the current limit. You can also use the up, down, 
right and left arrow buttons.

Save and recall the setups

You can store up to 30 different setups in memory locations. Each setup includes a voltage limit, current limit and maximum output voltage.

To save the setups

  1. After you set up the power supply, push the Save button.
  2. Use the number buttons or the arrow buttons to select the setup memory (1 to 30) that you want 
to store the values in.
  3. Push Enter to confirm the memory location.

To recall the setups

  1. Push Recall.
  2. Use the number buttons or the arrow buttons to select the setup memory that you want to recall from.
  3. Push Enter.
