Safety Precautions
To ensure safe operation of the equipment and eliminate the danger of serious injury due to shortcircuit (arcing), the following safety precautions must be observed.

Prior to connection of the equipment to the mains outlet, check that the available mains
voltage corresponds to the voltage setting of the equipment.

Connect the mains plug of the equipment only to a mains outlet with an earth ground
connection.

Do not place the equipment on damp or wet surfaces.

Do not subject the equipment to direct sunlight or extreme temperatures.

Do not subject the equipment to extreme humidity or dampness

Replace a defective fuse only with a fuse of the original rating. Never short circuit the fuse or
the fuse housing

Do not exceed the maximum permissible input rating.

Comply with the warning labels and other info on the equipment.

Do not insert metal objects into the equipment by way of the ventilation slots

Do not place water-filled containers on the equipment

Do not operate the equipment near strong magnetic fields (motors, transformer etc.)

Do not subject the equipment to shocks or strong vibrations

Keep hot soldering irons away from the equipment

Allow the equipment to stabilize at room temperature before use

Do not modify the equipment in any way

All service and repair must be performed by qualified service personal.
Cleaning the meter housing
Prior to cleaning the meter housing, disconnect the mains plug from the power outlet. Clean only
with a damp, soft cloth and a commercially available mild household cleaner. Ensure that no water
gets inside the equipment to prevent possible shorts and damage to the equipment.

Operation
Independent Connections (Channels 1 and 2, adjustable outputs)
Set the tracking switches (19) and (22) to the spring OUT position (INDEP). Set the Output On/Off
switch (27) to the ON position.
Constant Voltage (CV) Mode
1.
Rotate the CC knob (4) for CH 2 or (13) for CH 1 to maximum and then turn on the power
supply.
2.
Adjust CV knob (6) or (11) for the desired output.
3.
The color of the CV/CC status LED (5) or (12) will turn green.
4.
Current Limiting Note: For CV outputs in general, the CC adjustment should be set to
maximum, but, for this unit, the current limiting protection point can also be set arbitrarily. To
do so:
a) Turn on power
b) Rotate CC adjustment counter-clockwise to minimum
c) Short the positive and negative terminals
d) Rotate the CC adjustment clockwise to the desired current-limiting protection point.
Constant Current (CC) Mode
1.
Turn on the power supply.
2.
Rotate the CV knob (6) or (11) to maximum.
3.
Rotate the CC adjustment (4) or (13) to minimum
4.
Connect the required load.
5.
Rotate CC adjust knob clockwise to reach the desired current value.
6.
The color of the CV/CC status LED (5) or (12) will turn red.

Series Connection (Channels 1 and 2, adjustable outputs)
1.
Set the tracking switch (20) to the spring OUT position. Press in tracking switch (23).
2.
In Series mode, the slave output will strictly track the master output voltage when the user
turns the master voltage adjust knob (11). The output voltage in Series mode can be set up to
double the maximum voltage available in Independent mode (voltage between terminals 19 &
26).
3.
Ensure that both channels’ negative terminals are NOT connected to case ground. If they are,
a short circuit will occur.
4.
When the two outputs are configured in Series, the voltage is controlled by the master output
knob (11), but the current adjustment for the two outputs is still independent. Therefore, ensure
that the CC adjust knobs (4 and 13) are rotated fully clockwise to maximum for the Series
circuit to work correctly.
5.
The user must physically short the negative terminal of the Master output (CH1-) with the
positive terminal of the Slaved output (CH2+).
Parallel Connection (Channels 1 and 2 adjustable outputs)
1. Press in both tracking switch (20) and tracking switch (23).
2. In Parallel mode, the two outputs will always be the same for any setting of the master voltage
knob (11). The slave CC indicator (5) will switch on.
3. In Parallel mode the CC adjustment (4) for the slave is not active. The user must adjust the CC
for the master (CH1) output (13). The current available in parallel mode is up to twice the
amount available in other modes.
4. The user must short the two positive terminals. (CH1+ to CH2+)
5. The user must also short the two negative terminals. (CH1- to CH2-)
6. Use CH1 voltage control knob (11) to control the voltage level.
7. Use CH1 CC knob (13) to control current.
