Installation
Initial inspection
When you receive your power supply, inspect it for any
obvious damage that may have occurred during shipment. If
any damage is found, notify the carrier and the nearest
Agilent Technologies Sales Office immediately. Warranty
information is shown in the front of this manual.
Keep the original packing materials in case the power supply
has to be returned to Agilent Technologies in the future. If
you return the power supply for service, attach a tag
identifying the owner and model number. Also include a
brief description of the problem.
Mechanical Check
This check confirms that there are no broken terminals or
knob and that the cabinet and panel surfaces are free of
dents and scratches. Verify that the display is not scratched
or cracked.
Electrical Check
Chapter 1 describes quick operation procedure that verifies
to a high level of confidence that the power supply is
operating in accordance with its specifications. More
complete verification procedures are included in the “Service
Guide” on page 55.

General Information
Cooling and location
Cooling
The power supply can operate at rated specifications within
the temperature range of 0 °C to 40 °C. Power supply
loading is derated from 40 °C to 55 °C. A fan cools the
power supply by drawing air through the sides and
exhausting it out the back. Using an Agilent rack- mount will
not impede the flow of air.
Bench Operation
Your power supply must be installed in a location that
allows sufficient space at the sides and rear of the power
supply for adequate air circulation.
Cleaning
No cleaning is required for this product. If you wish to
remove dust from the enclosure, use a dry cloth.

Output Connections
WA R N I N G
Before attempting to connect wires to the front output terminals,
make sure to turn off the power supply first to avoid damage to the
circuits being connected.
Voltage drops
The load wires must be large enough to avoid excessive
voltage drops due to the impedance of the wires. In general,
if the wires are heavy enough to carry the maximum short
circuit current without overheating, excessive voltage drops
will not be a problem. The voltage drops across the load
wires should be limited to less than 2 V. Refer to the
American Wire Gauge (AWG) standard to calculate the
voltage drop for some commonly used AWG wire copper.

Extending the Voltage and Current Range
Two or more power supplies can be connected in series or
parallel to extend the range of voltage and current. This may
serve as a lower cost alternative to a power supply with
higher power rating.
Series connection
Serial connection of two or more power supplies can achieve
the output isolation rating of any one supply to obtain a
higher voltage than a single power supply. Power supplies
connected in series can be operated with one load across
both power supplies or with a separate load for each power
supply. The power supply has a diode with reverse polarity
connected across the output terminals to avoid any damages
when operated in series with other power supplies. It will be
protected if the load is short- circuited, or when one of the
power supply is turned on separately in a series- connected
power supplies.
When serial connection is used, the output voltage is the
sum of output voltage across all power supplies, while the
output current is the output current from an individual
power supply. Each power supply must be adjusted to obtain
the total output voltage.
Parallel connection
Two or more power supplies which are capable of constant
voltage or constant current automatic cross- over operation
can be connected in parallel to obtain a total output current
greater than one power supply. Total output current is the
sum of output current across all power supplies. The output
settings from each power supply can be made separately.
The control of output voltage for one of the power supply
should be set to the desired output value, while the other

Operations and Features
power supply should be set to a slightly higher output
voltage. The power supply with higher output voltage setting
will deliver its constant current output and drop its output
voltage. This will happen until the output voltage equals the
output of the other supply, and the other supply will remain
in constant voltage operation; only delivering that fraction of
rated output current that is necessary to fulfill the total
load demand.

procedures allow you to verify that the power supply is
operating within its published specifications. The calibration
procedures show how to make voltage and current
adjustment on the power supply.
Agilent Technologies Calibration Services
When your instrument is due for calibration, contact your
local Agilent Service Center for a low- cost recalibration.
Calibration Interval
One year interval is recommended for most applications.
Accuracy specifications are warranted only if calibration is
made at regular calibration interval. Accuracy specifications
are not warranted beyond the one year calibration interval.
Agilent does not recommend extending calibration intervals
beyond two years for any application. Agilent recommends
that complete re- adjustment should always be performed at
the calibration interval. This will increase your confidence
that the U8001A and U8002A will remain within
specification for the next calibration interval. The
re- adjustment provides the best long- term stability and

Current Monitoring Resistor
To eliminate output current measurement error caused by
the voltage drops in the leads and connections, connect the
current monitoring resistor (RM) between the (–) output
terminal and the load as a four- terminal device. Connect the
current monitoring leads inside the load- lead connections
directly at the monitoring points on the resistor element.
General Measurement Techniques
To achieve best results when measuring load regulation, peak
to peak voltage, and transient response time of the power
supply, measuring devices must be connected through the
hole in the neck of the binding post at (A) while the load
resistor is plugged into the front of the output terminals at
(B). A measurement made across the load includes the
impedance of the leads to the load. The impedance of the
load leads can easily be several orders of the magnitude
greater than the power supply impedance and thus
invalidate the measurement. To avoid mutual coupling
effects, each measuring device must be connected directly to
the output terminals by separate pairs of leads.

Electronic Load
Many of the test procedures require the use of a variable
load resistor capable of dissipating the required power.
Using a variable load resistor requires that switches should
be used to connect, disconnect, and short the load resistor.
An electronic load, if available, can be used in place of a
variable load resistor and switches. The electronic load is
considerably easier to use than load resistors. It eliminates
the need for connecting resistors or rheostats in parallel to
handle power, it is much more stable than carbon- pile load,
and it makes easy work of switching between load conditions
as is required for the load regulation and load response
tests. Substitution of the electronic load requires minor
changes to the test procedures in this chapter.
