3.9.
Connecting the Load
WARNING
Turn Off the AC input power before making or changing any rear
panel connection. Ensure that all connections are securely tightened
before applying power. There is a potential shock hazard when using
a power supply with a rated output greater than 40V.
3.9.1. Load Wiring
The following considerations should be made to select wiring for connecting the load to
the power supply:
 Current carrying capacity of the wire (refer to Section 3.9.2)
 Insulation rating of the wire should be at least equivalent to the maximum output
voltage of the power supply.
 Maximum wire length and voltage drop (refer to Section 3.9.2)
 Noise and impedance effects of the load wiring (refer to Section 3.9.4).
38
83515000 Rev D
3.9.2. Current Carrying Capacity
Two factors must be considered when selecting the wire size:
a) Wires should be at least heavy enough not to overheat while carrying the power
supply load current at the rated load, or the current that would flow in the event the
load wires were shorted, whichever is greater.
b) Wire size should be selected to enable voltage drop per lead to be less than 1.0V at
the rated current. Although units will compensate for up to 5V in each load wire, it is
recommended to minimize the voltage drop (1V typical maximum) to prevent
excessive output power consumption from the power supply and poor dynamic
response to load changes. Please refer to Tables 3-2 and 3-3 for maximum wire
length (to limit voltage drop) in American and European dimensions respectively.

Where current is expressed in Amperes and resistivity in ohms/km or ohms/1000 ft.
3.9.3. Wire Termination
The wires should be properly terminated with terminals securely attached. DO NOT use
unterminated wires for load connection at the power supply.
CAUTION
When local sensing, a short from +LS or +S to -V or -S or -LS, will cause damage to
the power supply. Reversing the sense wires might cause damage to the power
supply in local and remote sensing. (Do not connect -S to +V or +S to -V).
39
83515000 Rev D
3.9.4. Noise and Impedance Effects
To minimize the noise pickup or radiation, the load wires and remote sense wires
should be twisted pairs to the shortest possible length. Shielding of sense leads may be
necessary in high noise environments. Where shielding is used, connect the shield to
the chassis via a rear panel Ground screw. Even if noise is not a concern, the load and
remote sense wires should be twisted-pairs to reduce coupling, which might impact the
stability of power supply. The sense leads should be separated from the power leads.
Twisting the load wires reduces the parasitic inductance of the cable, which could
produce high frequency voltage spikes at the load and the output of the power supply,
because of current variation in the load itself.
The impedance introduced between the power supply output and the load could make
the ripple and noise at the load worse than the noise at the power supply rear panel
output. Additional filtering with bypass capacitors at the load terminals may be required
to bypass the high frequency load current.
3.9.5. Inductive Loads
Inductive loads can produce voltage spikes that may be harmful to the power supply. A
diode should be connected across the output. The diode voltage and current rating
should be greater than the power supply maximum output voltage and current rating.
Connect the cathode to the positive output and the anode to the negative output of the
power supply.
Where positive load transients such as back EMF from a motor may occur, connect a
surge suppressor across the output to protect the power supply. The breakdown
voltage rating of the suppressor must be approximately 10% higher than the maximum
output voltage of the power supply.
3.9.6. Making the Load Connections
WARNING
Hazardous voltages may exist at the outputs and the load connections
when using a power supply with a rated output greater than 40V. To
protect personnel against accidental contact with hazardous voltages,
ensure that the load and its connections have no accessible live parts.
Ensure that the load wiring insulation rating is greater than or equal to
the maximum output voltage of the power supply.
CAUTION
Ensure that the load wiring mounting hardware does not short the output
terminals. Heavy connecting cables must have some form of strain relief to
prevent loosening the connections or bending the bus-bars.
8V to 100V Models
Refer to Fig.3-6 for connection of the load wires to the power supply bus-bars and to
Fig.3-7 for mounting the bus-bars shield to the chassis.

of the power supply.
CAUTION
Output Load Wires No Conductor Pretreatment: Phoenix Contact clamping parts are
designed so that all kinds of copper conductors can be clamped with pretreatment.
It is forbidden to solder the conductors. The solder tin yields and fractures under high pressure.
The result is increased contact resistance and an excessive temperature rise. In addition,
corrosion caused by pickling or fluxes has been observed on soldered conductor ends. Notch
fractures at the transition point from the rigid to the flexible conductor area are also possible.

Fig.3-13 shows multiple loads connected to one supply. Each load should be
connected to the power supply’s output terminals using separate pairs of wires. It is
recommended that each pair of wires will be as short as possible and twisted or
shielded to minimize noise pick-up and radiation. The sense wires should be connected
to the power supply output terminals or to the load with the most critical load regulation
requirement.

3.9.11. Grounding Outputs
Either the positive or negative output terminals can be grounded. To avoid noise
problems caused by common-mode current flowing from the load to ground, it is
recommended to ground the output terminal as close as possible to the power supply
chassis ground.
Always use two wires to connect the load to the power supply regardless of how the
system is grounded.
WARNING
Models up to 60VDC Rated Output shall not float outputs more than +/60VDC above/below chassis ground. Models > 60VDC Rated Output shall
not float outputs more than +/-600VDC above/below chassis ground.

WARNING
OUTPUT TERMINAL GROUNDING
There is a potential shock hazard at the RS232/485 and IEEE ports
when using power supplies with rated or combined voltage greater
than 400V with the Positive output of the power supplies grounded.
Do not connect the Positive output to ground when using the
RS232/485 or IEEE under the above conditions.
3.10.
Local and Remote Sensing
The rear panel J2 sense connector is used to configure the power supply for local or
remote sensing of the Output Voltage. Refer to Fig.3-15 for sense connector location
3.10.1.
3.10.1. Sense Wiring
WARNING
There is a potential shock hazard at the sense connector when using a
power supply with a rated Output Voltage greater than 40V. Local
Sense and remote sense wires should have a minimum insulation
ration equivalent or greater than the maximum Output Voltage of the
power supply. Ensure that the connections at the load end are shielded
to prevent accidental contact with hazardous voltages.
3.10.2. Local Sensing
The power supply is shipped with the rear panel J2 sense connector wired for local
sensing of the Output Voltage. See Table 3-4 for J2 terminals assignment. With local
sensing, the Output Voltage regulation is made at the output terminals. This method
does not compensate for voltage drop on the load wires, therefore it is recommended
only for low load current applications or where the load regulation is less critical.

3.10.3. Remote Sensing
WARNING
There is a potential shock hazard at the sense point when using a
power supply with a rated Output Voltage greater than 40V. Ensure
that the connections at the load end are shielded to prevent
accidental contact with hazardous voltages.
CAUTION
When using shielded sense wires, ground the shield in one place only. The
location can be the power supply chassis or one of the output terminals.
Use remote sense where the load regulation at the load end is critical. In remote sense,
the power supply will compensate for voltage drop on the load wires. Refer to the
power supply specifications for the maximum voltage drop on load wires. The voltage
drop is subtracted from the total voltage available at the output. Follow the instructions
below to configure the power supply for remote sensing:
a) Ensure that the AC On/Off is in the Off position.
b) Remove the local sense jumpers from J2.
c) Connect the negative sense lead to terminal J2-5 (-S) and the positive sense lead
to terminal J2-1(+S) of the J2 mating connector. Ensure that the J2 mating
connector is plugged securely into the rear panel sense connector.
d) Turn On the power supply.
Notes:
1. If the power supply is operating in remote sense and either the positive or negative
load wire is not connected, an internal protection circuit will activate and shut down
the power supply. To resume operation, turn the AC On/Off to the Off position,
connect the open load wire, and turn On the power supply.
2. If the power supply is operated without the remote sense lines or local sense
jumpers, it will continue to work, but the output voltage regulation will be degraded.
Also, the OVP circuit may activate and shut down the power supply.

Rear Panel J1 Programming and Monitoring Connector
The J1 Programming and Monitoring connector is a DB25 subminiature connector located
on the power supply rear panel. Refer to Table 4-4 for description of the connector
functions. The power supply default configuration is Local operation, which does not
require connections to J1. For remote operation using J1 signals, use the plug provided
with power supply (or equivalent type). It is essential to use a plastic body plug to conform
to Safety Agency requirements. If a shield is required for the J1 wires, connect the shield to
a power supply chassis ground screw.

5. LOCAL OPERATION
5.1.
Introduction
This Chapter describes the operating modes that are not involved in programming and
monitoring the power supply via its serial communication port (RS232/RS485) or by remote
analog signals. Ensure that the REM/LOC LED on the front panel is Off, indicating Local
mode. If the REM/LOC LED is On, press the front panel REM/LOC button to change the
operating mode to Local.
— For information regarding Remote Analog Programming, refer to Chapter 6.
— For information regarding the Serial Communication Port, refer to Chapter 7.
5.2.
Standard Operation
The power supply has two basic operating modes: Constant Voltage Mode and Constant
Current Mode. The mode in which the power supply operates at any given time depends
on the Output Voltage setting, Output Current setting and the load resistance.
5.2.1. Constant Voltage Mode
a) In constant voltage mode, the power supply regulates the Output Voltage at the
selected value, while the load current varies as required by the load.
b) While the power supply operates in constant voltage mode, the VOLTAGE LED on
the front panel illuminates.
c) Adjustment of the Output Voltage can be made when the power supply output is
enabled (Output On) or disabled (Output Off). When the output is enabled, simply
rotate the VOLTAGE encoder knob to program the output voltage. When the output
is disabled, press the PREV button and then rotate the VOLTAGE encoder knob.
The VOLTAGE meter will show the programmed Output Voltage for 5 seconds after
the adjustment has been completed. Then the VOLTAGE meter will display “OFF”.
d) Adjustment resolution can be set to coarse or fine resolution. Press FINE button to
select between the lower and higher resolution. The FINE LED turns On when the
resolution is set to FINE.
NOTE
If after completing the adjustment, the display shows a different value than the
setting, the power supply may be at current limit. Check the load condition and the
power supply Output Current setting.
NOTE
The maximum and minimum setting values of the output voltage are limited by the
Over Voltage protection and Under Voltage limit setting. Refer to Sections 5.3 and
5.4 for more details.
54
83515000 Rev D
5.2.2. Constant Current Mode
a) In constant current mode, the power supply regulates the Output Current at the
selected value, while the voltage varies with the load requirement.
b) While the power supply is operating in constant current mode, the CURRENT LED
on the front panel illuminates.
c) Adjustment of the Output Current setting can be made when the power supply
output is enabled (Output On) or disabled (Output Off).
 Disabled output (Off): Press PREV button and then rotate the Current encoder
knob. The CURRENT meter will show the programmed Output Current limit for
5 seconds after the adjustment has been completed. Then the VOLTAGE meter
will display “OFF”.
 Enabled output, power supply in Constant Voltage mode: Press the PREV
button and then rotate the CURRENT encoder knob. The CURRENT meter will
show the programmed Output Current for 5 seconds after the adjustment has
been completed, and then will return to show the actual load current.
 Enabled output, power supply in Constant Current mode: Rotate the CURRENT
encoder knob to adjust the Output Current.
d) Adjustment resolution can be set to Coarse or Fine adjustment. Press the FINE
button to select between the Coarse and Fine resolution. The FINE LED turns On
when the resolution is set to FINE.
5.2.3. Automatic Crossover
If the power supply operates in Constant Voltage mode, while the load current is
increased to greater than the current limit setting, the power supply will automatically
switch to Constant Current mode. If the load is decreased to less than the current limit
setting, the power supply will automatically switch back to Constant Voltage mode.
5.3.
Over Voltage Protection (OVP)
The OVP circuit protects the load in the event of a remote or local programming error or a
power supply failure. The protection circuit monitors the voltage at the power supply sense
points and thus provides the protection level at the load. Upon detection of an Over Voltage
condition, the power supply output will shut down.
5.3.1. Setting the OVP Level
The OVP can be set when the power supply output is Enabled (On) or Disabled (Off).
To set the OVP level, press the OVP/UVL button, so that the CURRENT meter shows
“OUP”. The VOLTAGE meter shows the

55
83515000 Rev D
To preview the OVP setting, press the OVP/UVL pushbutton so that the CURRENT
display will show “OUP”. At this time, the VOLTAGE display will show the OVP setting.
After 5 seconds, the display will return to its previous state.
5.3.2. Activated OVP Protection Indications
When the OVP is activated the power supply output shuts down. The VOLTAGE
display shows “OUP” and the ALARM LED blinks.
5.3.3. Resetting the OVP Circuit
To reset the OVP circuit after it activates:
a) Reduce the power supply Output Voltage setting below the OVP set level.
b) Ensure that the load and the sense wiring are connected properly.
c) There are four methods to reset the OVP circuit.
 Press the OUT button.
 Turn the power supply Off using the AC On/Off switch, wait until the front panel
display turns Off, then turn the power supply On using the AC On/Off switch.
 Turn the power supply output Off and then On using the SO control (refer to
Section 5.7). In this method the power supply should be set to Auto-Restart
mode.
 Send an OUT 1command via the RS232/RS485 communication port.
5.4.
A Under Voltage Limit (UVL)
The UVL prevents adjustment of the Output Voltage below a certain limit. The combination
of UVL and OVP functions, allow the user to create a protection window for sensitive load
circuitry.
5.4.1. Setting the UVL Level
Setting the UVL can be made when the power supply output is Enabled (On) or
Disabled (Off). To set the UVL level, press the OVP/UVL button TWICE, so that the
CURRENT meter shows “UUL”. The VOLTAGE meter shows the UVL setting level.
Rotate the VOLTAGE encoder knob to adjust the UVL level. The display will show
‘UUL” and the setting value for 5 seconds after the adjustment has been completed and
then will return to its previous state.
UVL setting values are limited at the maximum level to approximately 95% of the
Output Voltage setting. Attempting to adjust the UVL above this limit will result in no
response to the adjustment attempt. The minimum UVL setting is zero.
5.5.
Foldback Protection
Foldback protection will shut down the power supply output if the load current exceeds the
current limit setting level. This protection is useful when the load circuitry is sensitive to an
overcurrent condition.
5.5.1. Setting the Foldback Protection
To arm the Foldback protection, the FOLD button should be pressed so that the FOLD
LED illuminates. In this condition, transition from Constant Voltage to Constant Current
mode will activate the Foldback protection. Activation of the Foldback protection
disables the power supply output, causes the ALARM LED to blink and displays “Fb” on
the VOLTAGE meter.
56
83515000 Rev D
5.5.2. Resetting Activated Foldback Protection
There are four methods to reset an activated Foldback protection.
a) Press the OUT button. The power supply output is enabled and the Output Voltage
and Current will return to their last setting. In this method, the Foldback protection
remains armed, therefore if the load current is higher than the current limit setting,
the Foldback protection will be activated again.
b) Press the FOLD button to cancel the Foldback protection. The power supply output
will be disabled and the VOLTAGE display will show “OFF”. Press the OUT button
to enable the power supply output.
c) Turn the power supply output Off and then On using the SO control (refer to Section
5.7). In this method the Foldback protection remains armed, therefore if the load
current is higher than the output current setting, the Foldback protection will be
activated.
d) Turn the power supply Off using the AC On/Off switch, wait until the front panel
display turns Off, then turn the unit back ON again. The power supply output is
enabled and the Output Voltage and Current will return to their last setting. In this
method, the Foldback protection remains armed, therefore if the load current is
higher than the output current setting, the Foldback protection will be activated again.
5.6.
Output On/Off Control
The Output On/Off Enables or Disables the power supply output. Use this function to make
adjustments to either the power supply or the load without shutting off the AC power. The
Output On/Off can be activated from the front panel using the OUT button or from the rear
panel J1 connector. The OUT button can be pressed at any time to Enable or Disable the
power supply output. When the output is disabled, the Output Voltage and Current fall to
zero and the VOLTAGE display shows “OFF”.
5.7.
Output Shut-Off (SO) Control via Rear Panel J1 Connector
Contacts 2, 3 and 15 of J1 (Fig.4-2, Item 5) serve as Output Shut-Off (SO) terminals. The
SO terminals accept a 2.5V to 15V signal or Open-Short contact to disable or enable the
power supply output. The SO function will be activated only when a transition from On to
Off is detected after applying AC power to the unit. (Thus, in Auto-Restart mode, the output
will be Enabled after applying AC power; even if SO is at an Off level). After an On to Off
transition it is detected, the SO will Enable or Disable the power supply output according to
the signal level or the short/open applied to J1. This function is useful for connecting power
supplies in a “Daisy-chain” (refer to Section 5.16). The SO control can also be used to
reset the OVP and Fold Protection (refer to Section 5.3 and 5.5 for details).
When the unit is shut-off by a J1 signal, the VOLTAGE display will show “SO” to indicate
the unit state. J1 contact 15 is the SO signal input and contacts 2 and 3, IF_COM, are the
signal return (connected internally). Contacts 2, 3 and 15 are optically isolated from the
power supply output.
The SO control logic can be selected by the rear panel SW1 Setup switch. Refer to Table
5-2 for SW1 setting and SO Control Logic.

To prevent possible damage to the unit, do not connect any of the Enable/Disable inputs
to the positive or negative output potential.
NOTE
Safe Start mode-If the Enable/Disable fault condition clears when units in safe start
mode recovery is by pressing OUT button or by sending an ‘OUT 1’ serial command.
Auto Restart mode-The output will return back ON automatically when the
Enable/Disable fault conditions clears.
5.9.
CV/CC Signal
CV/CC signal indicates the operating mode of the power supply, Constant Voltage or
Constant Current. The CV/CC signal is an open collector output with a 30V parallel zener,
at J1-13, referenced to the COM potential at J1-12 (connected internally to the negative
sense potential). When the power supply operates in Constant Voltage mode, CV/CC
output is open. When the power supply operates in Constant Current mode, the CV/CC
signal output is low (0-0.6), with maximum 10mA sink current.
CAUTION
Do not connect the CV/CC signal to a voltage source higher than 30VDC. Always
connect the CV/CC signal to voltage source with a series resistor to limit the sink current
to less than 10mA.
5.10.
PS_OK Signal
The PS_OK signal indicates the fault condition of the power supply. PS_OK is a TTL signal
output at J1-16, referenced to IF_COM at J1-2, 3 (Isolated Interface Common). When a
fault condition occurs, the PS_OK level is low, with a maximum sink current of 1mA; when
no fault condition occurs, the PS_OK level is high with a maximum source current of 2mA.
The following faults will set the PS_OK to a Fault state:
*OTP
*OVP
*Foldback
*AC fail
*Enable/Disable open (Power supply is disabled)
*SO (Rear panel Shut-Off, Power Supply is shut off)
*IEEE failure (With optional IEEE interface)
*Output Off

5.11.
Safe-Start and Auto-Restart Modes
When turning On the power supply AC On/Off, it can start to its last setting of Output
Voltage and Current with the output Enabled (Auto-restart mode) or start with the output
Disabled (Safe-start mode). Press and hold the OUT button to select between Safe-start
and Auto-restart modes. The VOLTAGE display will continuously cycle between “SAF” and
“AU7” every 3 seconds. Releasing the OUT pushbutton while one of the modes is
displayed, selects that mode. The default setting at shipment is Safe-start mode.
5.11.1. Auto-Restart Mode
In this mode, the power supply restores its last operation setting. Upon start-up, the
output is enabled or disabled according to its last setting.
5.11.2. Safe-Start Mode
In this mode, the power supply restores its last operation setting and sets the Output to
an Off state. At start-up, the output is Disabled and the Output Voltage and Current are
zero. To Enable the output and restore the last Output Voltage and Current values,
momentarily press the OUT button.
5.12.
Over Temperature Protection (OTP)
The OTP circuit shuts down the power supply before the internal components can exceed
their safe internal operating temperature. When an OTP shutdown occurs, the display
shows “OTP” (O7P) and the ALARM LED blinks.
Resetting the OTP circuit can be automatic (non-latched) or manual (latched) depending
on the Safe-start or Auto-restart mode.
1) Safe-start mode: In Safe-start mode, the power supply stays Off after the over
temperature condition has been removed. The display continues to show “OTP” (O7P)
and the ALARM LED continues to blink. To reset the OTP circuit, press the OUT button
(or send an OUT ON command via the serial port).
2) Auto-restart mode: In Auto-restart mode, the power supply recovers to its last setting
automatically when the over temperature condition is removed.
5.13.
Last Setting Memory
The power supply is equipped with Last Setting Memory, which stores several power
supply parameters at each AC turn-off sequence.
STORED PARAMETERS:
1. OUT On or Off
7. Start-up mode (Safe-start or Auto-restart)
2. Output Voltage setting (PV setting)
8. Remote/Local: If the last setting was Local
Lockout, (latched mode), the supply will return to
Remote mode (non-latched).

Series Operation
Power supplies of the SAME MODEL can be connected in series to obtain increased
output voltage. Split connection of the power supplies gives positive and negative output
voltage.
CAUTION
Do not connect power supplies from different manufacturers in series or in parallel.
5.14.1. Series connection for increased output voltage
In this mode, two units are connected so that their outputs are summed. Set the
Current of each power supply to the maximum that the load can handle without
damage. It is recommended that diodes be connected in parallel with each unit output
to prevent reverse voltage during start up sequence or in case one unit shuts down.
Each diode should be rated to at least the power supply rated Output Voltage and
Output Current. Refer to Fig.5-1 and 5-2 for series operation with local and remote
sensing.
WARNING
When power supplies are connected in series, and the load or one of
the output terminals is grounded, no point may be at a greater
potential of +/-60VDC from ground for models up to 60VDC Rated
Output and +/-600VDC from ground for models >60VDC Rated
Output. When using RS232/485/LAN or IEEE, refer to the OUTPUT
TERMINALS GROUNDING warning in Section 3.9.11.

Remote programming in series operation for increased output voltage:
1. Programming by external voltage:
The analog programming circuits of this power
supply are referenced to the negative output
potential. Therefore, the circuits used to control
each series connected unit must be separated
and floated from each other.
2. Using the SO function and PS_OK
signal:
The Shut-Off and PS_OK circuits are referenced
to the isolated interface common, IF_COM (J12,3). The IF_COM terminals of different units
can be connected to obtain a single control
circuit for the power supplies connected in
series.
3. Programming by external resistor:
Programming by external resistor is possible.
Refer to Section 6.5 for details.
4. Programming via the Serial
Communication port (RS232/485):
The communication port is referenced to the
IF_COM which is isolated from the power supply
output potential. Therefore power supplies
connected in series can be daisy-chained using
the Remote-In and Remote-Out connectors.
Refer to Chapter 7 for details.
5.14.2. Series Connection for Positive and Negative Output Voltage
In this mode, two units are configured as a positive and negative output. Set the Output
Current limit of each power supply to the maximum that the load can handle without
damage. It is recommended that diodes be connected in parallel with each unit output
to prevent reverse voltage during start-up or in case one of the units shuts down. Each
diode should be rated to at least the power supply rated output voltage and output
current. Refer to Fig.5-3 for this operating mode.

Parallel Operation
Up to four units of the same VOLTAGE and CURRENT rating can be connected in parallel
to provide up to four times the Output Current capability. One of the units operates as a
Master and the remaining units are Slaves. The Slave units are analog programmed by the
Master unit. In remote digital operation, only the Master unit can be programmed by the
computer, while the Slave units may be connected to the computer for voltage, current and
status readback only. Follow the following procedure to configure multiple supplies for
parallel operation. With both methods, power supplies should be connected in a DaisyChain configuration. Refer to Sec. 5.15.1 and to Sec. 5.15.2 for detailed explanation.
5.15.1. Basic Parallel Operation
In this method, setting the units as Master and Slaves is made by the rear panel J1
connections and the setup switch SW1. Each unit displays its own output current and
voltage. To program the load current, the Master unit should be programmed to the
total load current divided by the number of units in the system. Refer to the following
procedure to configure multiple supplies for basic parallel operation.
5.15.1.1.
Setting up the Master Unit
Set the Master unit Output Voltage to the desired voltage. Program the Output
Current to the desired load current divided by the number of parallel units.
During operation, the Master unit operates in CV mode, regulating the load
voltage at the programmed Output Voltage. Connect the sensing circuit to local
or remote sensing as shown in Fig.5-4 or Fig.5-5.
5.15.1.2.
Setting up the Slave Units
a) The Output Voltage of the Slave units should be programmed 2-5% higher
than the Output Voltage of the Master unit to prevent interference with the
Master unit’s control. The Output Current setting of each unit should be
programmed to the desired load current divided by the number of parallel
units.
b) Set the rear panel setup switch SW1 position 2 to the up position.

83515000 Rev D
c) Connect a wire jumper between J1-8 and J1-12 (refer to Table 4-4).
d) Connect J1 terminal 10(IPGM) of the slave unit to J1 terminal 25(P) of the
master unit.
e) Connect J1 terminal 23(IPGM_RTN) of the slave unit to J1 terminal 12
(COM) of the master unit.
During operation, the Slave units operate as a controlled current source
following the Master Output Current. It is recommended that the power system
be designed so that each unit supplies up to 95% of its current rating because
of the imbalance which may be caused by cabling and connection voltage drop.
5.15.1.3.
Daisy Chain Connection: (See Fig. 5-6)
These set up and connections are optional but are strongly recommended. It will
shut down all power supplies when a fault condition occurs in any one of them.
a) Switch SW1 position 5 should be in its down position for all power supplies.
b) Connect J1-16 of the Master Supply to J1-15 of the ‘First’ Slave Supply (If
any).
c) Connect J1-16 of the ‘First’ Slave Supply to J1-15 of the ‘Second’ Slave
Supply (If any).
d) Connect J1-16 of the ‘Second’ Slave Supply to J1-15 of the ‘Third’ Slave
Supply (If any).

any).
f) Connect J1-2 (or J1-3) common to all supplies (See Fig. 5.6).
5.15.1.4.
Setting Over Voltage Protection
The Master unit OVP setting should be programmed to the desired OVP level.
The OVP setting of the slave units should be programmed to a higher value
than the Master OVP. When the Master unit shuts down, it programs the Slave
unit to zero Output Voltage. If a Slave unit shuts down (when its OVP is set
lower than the Master Output Voltage and, if all P/S are not daisy chained per
section 3 above), only that Slave unit would shut down, and the remaining Slave
units would supply all the load current.
5.15.1.5.
Setting Foldback Protection
Foldback protection, is desired, may only be used with the Master unit. When
the Master unit shuts down, it programs the Slave units to zero Output Voltage.
5.15.1.6.
Connection To The Load
In parallel operation, power supplies can be connected in local or remote
sensing. Refer to Fig. 5-4 and 5-5 for typical connections of parallel power
supplies. The figures show connection of two units, however the same
connection method applies for up to 4 units.
5.15.2. Advanced Parallel Operation
In this method, multiple supplies can be configured to parallel operation as a single
power supply. The total load current and output voltage are displayed by the Master
unit and can be readback from the Master unit. The Slave units display only their
operating status (On, Off or Fault condition).

5.16.
Daisy-Chain Connection
It is possible to configure a multiple power supply system to shut down all the units when a
fault condition occurs in one of the units. When the fault is removed, the system recovers
according to its setting to Safe-start or Auto-restart mode.
Setup switch SW1, position 5 should be set to its DOWN position to enable the Daisy-chain
operation. Other SW1 positions can be set according to the application requirements.
If a fault occurs in one of the units, its PS_OK signal will be set to a low level and the
display will indicate the fault. The other units will shut off and their display will indicate
“SO”. When the fault condition is removed, the units will recover to their last setting
according to their Safe-start or Auto-restart setting.

6. REMOTE ANALOG PROGRAMMING
6.1.
Introduction
The rear panel connector J1 allows the user to program the power supply Output Voltage
and Current with an analog device. J1 also provides monitoring signals for Output Voltage
and Output Current. The programming range and monitoring signals range can be
selected between 0-5V or 0-10V using the setup switch SW1. When the power supply is in
Remote Analog programming, the serial communication port is active and can be used to
read the power supply parameters.
CAUTION
COM (J1-12), VPGM_RTN (J1-22) terminals are connected and IPGM_RTN (J1-23)
terminal of J1 is referenced internally to the -Vout potential (-V). Do not connect these
terminals to any potential other than -Vout (-V), as it may damage the power supply.
6.2.
Local/Remote Analog Control
Contact 8 of J1 (Fig.4-2, Item 5) accepts TTL signal or Open-Short contact (referenced to
J1-12) to select between Local or Remote Analog programming of the Output Voltage and
Current.
In Local mode, the Output Voltage and Output Current can be programmed via the front
panel VOLTAGE and CURRENT encoders or via the RS232/RS485 port. In Remote
Analog mode, the Output Voltage and current can be programmed by analog voltage or by
programming resistors via J1 contacts 9 and 10 (refer to Sections 6.4 and 6.5). Refer to
Table 6-1 for Local/Remote Analog control (J1-8) function and Setup switch SW1-1, 2

Resistive Programming of Output Voltage and Current Limit
For resistive programming, internal current sources, for Output Voltage and/or Output
Current control, supply 1mA current through external programming resistors connected
between J1-9 & 22 and J1-10 & 23. The voltage across the programming resistors is used
as a programming voltage for the power supply. Resistance of 05Kohm or 010Kohm can
be selected to program the output voltage and output current from zero to full scale.
A variable resistor can control the output over its entire range, or a combination of variable
resistor and series/parallel resistors can control the output over restricted portion of its
range.
Perform the following procedure to set the power supply to Resistive programming:
a) Turn the AC On/Off switch to Off.
b) Set setup switch SW1-1 to its UP position for output voltage external programming and
SW1-2 to its UP position for Output Current limit external programming.
c) Set SW1, position 3 to select the programming resistor range according to Table 6-4.
d) Set SW1-7 to its UP position for output voltage resistive programming and SW1-8 to its
UP position for Output Current limit resistive programming.
e) Connect a short between J1-8, J1-12 and J1-23 (refer to Table 4-4).
f) Connect the programming resistors to the mating plug of J1 as shown in Fig.6-2.
g) Set the programming resistors to the desired resistance and turn the power supply ON.
Adjust the resistors to change the power supply output.
NOTES:

Communication Interface Protocol
NOTE
The address (“ADR n”) command must return an “OK” response before any other
commands are accepted.
7.5.1. Data Format
Serial data format is 8 bit, one start bit and one stop bit. No parity bit.
7.5.2. Addressing
The Address is sent separately from the command. It is recommended to add 100msec
delay between query or sent command to next unit addressing. Refer to Section 7.7.3
for details.
7.5.3. End of Message
The end of message is the Carriage Return character (ASCII 13). The power supply
ignores the Line Feed (ASCII 10) character.
75
83515000 Rev D
7.5.4. Command Repeat
The backslash character “\” will cause the last command to be repeated.
7.5.5. Checksum
The user may add a checksum (optional) to the end of the command. The checksum is “$”
followed by two hex characters. If a command or a query has a checksum, the response will
also have one. There is no CR between the command string and the “$” sign.
Example: STT?3A
STAT?$7B
7.5.6. Acknowledge
The power supply acknowledges received commands by returning an “OK” message. If an
error is detected the power supply will return an error message. The rules of checksum also
apply to the acknowledge.
7.5.7. Error Message
If an error is detected in command or query, the power supply will respond with an error
message. Refer to Section 7.6 for details.
7.5.8. Backspace
The backspace character (ASCII 8) clears the last character sent to the power supply.
7.6.
Error Messages
The power supply will return error messages for illegal commands and illegal programming
parameters. Refer to Table 7-1 for programming error messages and Table 7-2 for command
error messages.

Global Output Commands
7.8.1. Description
Global commands are a way to quickly set all power supplies on the RS-232/485 bus to
the same setting. For example, sending “GOUT OFF” is one way to turn a whole group
of supplies OFF at nearly the same time.
NOTE
After sending a global command, it is important that the controller wait
200 mSec before sending any more RS-232/485 messages.
If the command contains an error, such as incorrect syntax or range values, NO error
response will be returned by any power supply.

NOTE
The power supply can accept values higher 5% than the table values, however it is
not recommended to program the power supply over the rated values.
7.9.
Fast Queries
These are commands that read a response very quickly from the power supply. They use
unprintable character codes. They allow the power supply to avoid the normal command
processing delays.
The processing time for these queries is typically 2 mSec, so total query speed is 2 mSec
plus the RS-232/485 transmission time.
Since these queries embed the power supply address (0 to 30), there is no need to first
send the “ADR n” addressing command.
7.9.1. Fast Test for Connection
This is an addressed query that is good for scanning to see what supplies are “on line”.
If no response is returned within 10 mSec, your control program has determined that no
power supply is connected at that address.
80
83515000 Rev D
Query Format:
Send two bytes of unreadable characters. First:
Byte 1 = 1010 1010 = AA hex
Byte 2 = 000x xxxx (where xxxxx is the address of the supply in binary)
Query Response:
The power supply returns 5 characters:
First a “1” = 31 hex if Multi-drop is enabled
or a “0” = 30 hex if Multi-drop is not enabled
Then four printable characters:
Dollar sign “$”
Checksum (two ASCII hex characters) = “30” or “31”
Carriage-return terminator
7.9.2. Fast Read Registers
This query allows fast polling of the status and error registers for many power supplies
on a RS-232/485 link. It is useful for checking many supplies to verify they are all
operating as expected.
Query Format:
Send two bytes of unreadable characters. First:
100x xxxx
(where xxxxx is the address of the supply in binary)
And send it a second time:
100x xxxx
(send 2 characters sequentially)
Query Response:
The power supply returns 16 characters including the contents of the status and
fault registers (see section 7.11 and Figure 7-7).
First twelve bytes contain binary data from six registers:
STAT? SENA? SEVE? FLT? FENA? FEVE?
Then four printable characters:
Dollar sign “$”
Checksum (two ASCII hex characters)
Carriage-return terminator
7.9.3. Read Power-On Time
This query allows you to read how many minutes the power supply has been running
since it was built. The accuracy, in minutes, is not guaranteed for time critical
applications.
Query Format:
Send two bytes of unreadable characters. First:
Byte 1 = 1010 0110 = A6 hex
Byte 2 = 000x xxxx (where xxxxx is the address of the supply in binary)
Query Response:
The power supply returns 12 characters:
First is the minutes as a 32 Bit integer as 8 ASCII Hex bytes
Then four printable characters:
Dollar sign “$”
Checksum (two ASCII hex characters) = “30” or “31”
Carriage-return terminator
81
83515000 Rev D
7.9.4. Service Request Messages
A Genesys power supply can automatically send messages over the RS-232/485 lines
when there is a change in operating mode or if a fault occurs. These messages are
called Service Requests or SRQs. They are setup with the RS-232/485 status registers
(see section 7.10 and 7.11).
Since the SRQ messages may be sent from any supply at any time, there is a chance
they can collide with other messages from other supplies. Your controller software has
to be developed enough to read messages that may come at any time, and to recover if
messages are corrupted by collisions.
If you need Service Request messaging, please contact TDK-Lambda for assistance.
We can provide several special communication commands and settings that will help
with this.
7.10.
Status and Error Commands
The following commands operate on the power supply status and error registers. They are
used to read operating conditions and fault conditions, they can be set to latch changes in
these conditions, and masks can be set up to send service requests messages if the
conditions change.
Refer to the next section for more instructions.

Status, Error, and SRQ Registers
7.11.1. General Description
This Section describes the structure and operation of the six status, error, and SRQ
registers. The registers can be set or read via the RS232/RS485 commands.
Refer to Fig. 7-7 for the Status and Error Registers Diagram.
NOTE
These registers operate in a way that is similar to the IEEE-488 and SCPI registers (as used by
the Genesys™ with the “-IEMD” option), but the structure and command set is different.

8. ISOLATED ANALOG PROGRAMMING OPTION
8.1.
Introduction
Isolated Analog Programming is an internal Option Card for analog programming of the
GenesysTM power supply series. The option is factory installed and cannot be obtained with
a GPIB (IEEE-488) Interface. Output Voltage and Output Current can be programmed and
readback through optically isolated signals which are isolated from all other ground
references in the power supply.
There are two types of Isolated Analog programming cards:
a) 0-5V/0-10V option (PN: IS510): Using 0-5V or 0-10V signals for programming and
readback.
b) 4-20mA option (PN: IS420): Using current signals for programming and readback.
