Display Descriptions

Constant Voltage mode (C.V. indicator)

The output voltage is kept constant at the set voltage. The

DCP36 remains in CV mode if the load current is lower than the set current limit, otherwise it will switch to CC mode.

Constant Current mode (C.C. indicator)

When the load is higher than the set current limit of the set voltage in CV mode, the Constant Current mode is active.

The output current is kept constant at the set current level provided that the loading is sufficiently large to draw current equal to or larger than the set current, otherwise it will switch to the CV mode.

Upper Voltage/Current (UVL/UCL) Limits

The Upper Voltage (UVL) and Current (UCL) Limits are added protection for sensitive loads. When the output exceeds the UVL or UCL setting, the output signals will automatically switch OFF and the alert icon ‘ Uul’ or ‘ UCl ’ will appear. The second function of the Voltage and Current Knobs are for UVL and UCL adjustment.

1.

Press SHIFT and the SHIFT LED will switch ON.

2.

Press the Voltage or Current knob. The display will s how ‘ SUul’ or ‘ SUCl ’ and the UVL or UCL value on the 4-digit LEDs.

3.

Turn the Voltage or Current knob to adjust the UVL or UCL value. Press the Voltage or

Current knob to select a digit for editing.

4.

Press SHIFT to confirm the setting and to exit the mode. If the new value is lower than the output setting, the DCP36 will display an error ( Erro ). In this case, reduce the output setting to a value lower than the UVL or UCL value.

Stand-Alone Operation

1.

With no load attached to either the front or rear output terminals, plug the power supply into an AC power source.

2.

Use the POWER button to switch the power supply ON.

3.

The firmware version will briefly appear and then the 4-digit LEDs will read zero.

4.

When connected to a load, the Voltage and Current knobs can be turned clockwise or counterclockwise to increase or decrease the output levels for the selected preset A, B, or C

(see next section). View the adjustments on the 4-digit LED readouts. You can also short

5 DCP36-en-GB_V1.1 5/19

press the Voltage or Current knob to select individual digits to adjust; the selected digit will appear bold. Rotate the knob to set the digit and then press the knob to select another digit.

5.

Use the OUTPUT button to turn the output OFF.

Note : The front and rear output terminals are connected internally.

Output Presets (

A, B, and C

)

The DCP36 offers three Voltage/Current output preset configurations (A, B, and C) for quick recall. Select a preset by pressing the A, B, or C button, the corresponding preset LED will light.

To adjust a preset configuration, first press the A, B, or C button and then use the Voltage and

Current knobs to set the desired output levels. The new settings will be saved automatically.

The values can be reset to factory default in program menu. Note that the output will automatically switch OFF when another preset is selected in order to prevent damage to a connected load if a preset output is set too high.

Front Panel Lock-out

To lock the front panel controls, short press the LOCK button. The LOCK LED indicator is lit when the front panel is locked. To unlock the front panel, press the LOCK button again, the

LOCK LED will switch OFF. When the front panel is locked only the LOCK button is functional.

Watt-meter / Amp-meter selection

The lower 4-digit LED readout is used to display current (Amperes) or Power (Watts). To switch between the two types:

1.

Press SHIFT ; the SHIFT LED will switch ON

2.

Press the A/W button to switch to Watt-meter

3.

Press SHIFT ; the SHIFT LED will switch ON

4.

Press A/W to revert to the Amp-meter mode

Remote Sensing

When the output current is high or the load connection cable is very long, a voltage drop develops across the connecting cables. This results in a difference between the voltage at the output terminals and at the load point. By connecting the Remote Sense terminals to the load point, the voltage reading at the output display and the voltage at the load point will be the same.

Caution: Observe correct polarity and never short the Remote Sensing terminals.

1.

Connect the power supply output terminals to the Load (use the front or rear O/P terminals)

2.

Connect the Remote Sensing terminals to the Load (push in on the orange tabs on the terminal block to open the wire clamp inside the connector)

3.

Connect RS+ to the Positive (+) connection at the Load

4.

Connect RS- to the Negative (-) connection at the Load

Note: Always disconnect the Remote Sense terminal connections before disconnecting the Load connections.

Master/Slave Operation

Two or more units (up to 30) can be connected in parallel to increase output current to the sum of the connected supplies. In this mode of operation, the Master power supply will control all the voltage and current settings of the Slave units.

Note: Please follow these steps carefully and in the correct order. Failure to do so can result in a lockout condition. If this occurs, please power off all units, disconnect the wiring, and begin again.

1.

Set all the power supplies to the same upper voltage limit (UVL) and voltage/current range.

2.

Set the voltage and current output of all the slaves to maximum values.

3.

Switch off all the power supplies.

4.

Connect the back of the power supplies as shown in the diagram below. Note: For proper operation all connecting cables and output cables should be of the same gauge and length.

Be sure to connect a terminator to the last Sla ve unit’s Master jack.

5.

Using either the output terminals on the front or back, connect the output cables in parallel to the load as shown in diagram below.

6.

Program the Master unit’s Address ID to ‘0’ (factory default) and set each Slave to a unique

ID between 1 and 30. See the Programming Menu section for details.

7.

Switch ON the Master first and set the desired output, then switch ON the Slave units. Each

Slave unit’s LED indicator should be lit if the wiring is configured correctly.

8.

All output voltages and currents are now controlled by the Master unit.
