WARNING—High Energy and High Voltage
Exercise caution when using and calibrating a power supply. High energy levels
can be stored at the output voltage terminals on a power supply in normal
operation. In addition, potentially lethal voltages exist in the power circuit and on
the output and sense connectors of a power supply with a rated output greater
than 40 V. Filter capacitors store potentially dangerous energy for some time after
power is removed.

CAUTION
Operate the power supply in an environment free of flammable gases or fumes. To
ensure that the power supply’s safety features are not compromised, use the
power supply as specified in this manual and do not substitute parts or make any
unauthorized modifications. Contact the service technician for service and repair

Section 2. Installation and Configuration
Introduction
We usually install the APG interface in a power supply at the factory. Your local
distributor or service center can also install the interface, especially for use in a
previously-purchased supply already on site.
Initial Inspection
!
CAUTION
If you remove the unit's cover, use proper static control techniques to avoid damage
to static-sensitive components on the printed circuit board.
On first receiving your unit, perform a quick physical check.
•
Ensure each package contains a power supply with its APG interface board
installed, and manuals for the power supply and the APG interface. Any
additional parts shipped with the power supply will be identified in the supply's
documentation.
Inspect the unit for any signs of physical damage such as scratches, cracks, or
broken switches, connectors, or displays.
Check the printed circuit board and components if you suspect internal damage.
•
•
If the unit is damaged, save all packing materials and notify the carrier immediately.
For additional information, please see the section titled, “Returning Power Supplies
to the Manufacturer” in the manual shipped with your complete unit.

Configuring
Configure and adjust the analog programming interface installed in your XT or HPD
DC power supply as indicated in this section. The front panel LEDs indicate when
V or I programming is selected (PGM), when TTL shutdown has occurred (S/D), and
when the supply exceeds the voltage trip point OVP). You can adjust the OVP right
at the front panel. You will find the main programming option switch and connector
on the unit's rear panel, see Figure 2.2.

Rear Panel J5 Connector
Make analog interface connections via the rear panel 25-pin female DSUB connector
designated J5. To provide the lowest noise performance, we recommend you use
shielded-twisted pair wiring for making connections from external circuits to the J5
connector. Use the shortest leads possible. Ground the shield to pin 6 (auxiliary
ground) on the J5 connector or to the chassis via one of the J5 connector screws.
Note:In order to maintain isolation of power supply output, any programming
source must also be an isolated source.

Section 3. Operation
Remote Programming
Remote programming allows control of the power supply's output voltage and/or
current limit to shift from local operation at the front panel voltage and current
controls to external analog input sources. As you vary the programming source, the
power supply's output varies proportionally over its output range.
When you select remote voltage programming, the voltage control knob on the front
panel will not work. The same situation applies when you select remote current
programming: the remote option overrides the current control knob on the front
panel.
!
CAUTION
The programming signal return is internally referenced to the return sense (RTN
SNS) potential of the power supply. Therefore, you may connect the remote
programming source return to the power supply circuit at ONLY ONE of the
following nodes:
•
•
•
APG Interface J5 connector pins 4 or 5 (program return), OR
power supply output return when remote sense not used, OR
power supply return sense (RTN SNS) when remote sense is connected.
If you do not observe this restriction, the power supply may operate erratically,
or, fuse F1 on the APG Interface PCB assembly may blow.
In order to maintain isolation of power supply output, use a programming source
which is also an isolated source.

Overvoltage Protection (OVP)
Overvoltage Protection (OVP)
The OVP circuit is designed to protect the load in the event of a remote programming
error, incorrect voltage control adjustment, or power supply failure. The protection
circuit monitors the output and reduces the output voltage and current to zero
whenever a preset voltage limit is exceeded. A red LED on the front panel indicates
when the OVP circuit has been activated. Set the OVP trip level at the front panel.
OVP Flag When the OVP has been activated, a signal of nominal +10V through 10k will be
present at pin J5-1. When no OVP condition exists, this signal will be 0V.

6. Turn the voltage control knob to minimum.
7. Turn the POWER switch back ON and increase the voltage to check that the
power supply shuts off the output at the set voltage. Reference to J5 connector
pin 6 (auxiliary ground).
8. Reset the OVP circuit after activation by removing the overvoltage condition
and powering the unit OFF and back ON, or, by momentarily activating the TTL
remote shut down circuit. See “TTL Shutdown” for information about shut
down circuit operation.

TTL Shutdown
TTL Shutdown allows the output of the power supply to be disabled by a logic level
signal. This input is optically isolated from the power supply output and will
withstand a highpot test potential of 600Vac minimum. When TTL shutdown is
activated, the front panel LED comes on.
•
•
Connect the signal source between J5 connector pins 15 (TTL
shutdown/positive) and 2 (TTL shutdown return/negative).
Set rear panel switch S1-1 (TTL shutdown) to ON (closed) to obtain positive
logic (high signal enables output). The factory-set default is switch OPEN for
negative logic (high signal disables power supply output).

Tracking
For tracking +/- outputs, use the following set-up:
•
•
•
Set slave unit rear panel switch S1-5 (remote voltage program select) and switch
S1-6 (tracking select) to ON (closed).
Connect master return (J5 connector pins 12, 13, or 24) to slave +OUT (J5
connector pins 10, 11, or 23).
Connect master +OUT (J5 connector pins 10, 11, or 23) to slave voltage program
input (J5 connector pin 17).
Notes:
1. Master/slave power supplies must have the same output ratings.
2. Set switch S2 on the slave unit's APG Interface PCB to the correct model
number (factory preset). This requires that you remove the power supply cover.
3. Slave tracking can be calibrated by adjusting the unit's offset and range
potentiometers. See “Calibration Adjustment” on page 17.
4. As the slave is referenced to the master's output, the noise and ripple on the slave
may increase. In addition, if the master's output decreases due to current limit
acting, the output voltage of the slave will follow.
