How do I connect the DP832 to achieve +/-30V on Channel 1 and Channel 2?

Last Updated: Jan 13, 2016 12:54PM PST
The DP832 is a triple output power supply. CH1 and CH2 are +30V supplies, and CH3 is a 5V supply. 
To configure the instrument as a +/-30V or lower, you can use the instrument ground plug located on the front panel: 
  

-    Select which channel you want to be + and which you want to be – (in this note, we will select CH1 as -, CH2 as +) 
NOTE: The jumper wires connected to the DP832 ground  must use wire rated for 9A or greater to prevent damage or a possible fire hazard. 
 
-    Connect the power supply up as follows (we are including CH3 here) 

 
-    Configure the channels for the proper voltage, current, and limits that they require. 
 
NOTE: CH1 true polarity will be negative (-) with respect to the DP832 Ground Connection, even though the programmed voltage will indicate positive (+) 
 
-    Enable the power supply outputs by pressing the ON/Off buttons for each channel 
-    To make operation easier, you can also activate Tracking between Channel 1 
and Channel two by pressing  Utility > System > Track Set > Set Track to  
“Synchronous”. This will allow you to adjust the output value for Channel 1 
    and Channel 2 will follow.      

For floating connections (without earth ground) 

-    Select which channel you want to be + and which you want to be
            – (in this note, we will select CH1 as -, CH2 as +) 
Connect the power supply up as follows (we are including CH3 here) 

 
  
 
NOTE: The jumper wires connecting CH1 +, CH2 –, and CH3 – must use wire rated for 9A or greater to prevent damage or a possible fire hazard. 
Configure the channels for the proper voltage, current, and limits that they require. 
 
NOTE: CH1 true polarity will be negative (-) with respect to the DP832 Ground Connection, even though the programmed voltage will indicate positive (+) 
 
-    Enable the power supply outputs by pressing the ON/Off buttons for each channel 
-    To make operation easier, you can also activate Tracking between Channel 1 and Channel two by pressing  Utility > System > Track Set > Set Track to  “Synchronous”. This will allow you to adjust the output value for Channel 1 and Channel 2 will follow.
