Operating Basics
Setting the Protection Levels
The OVP (overvoltage protection) and OCP (overcurrent protection)
settings protect against supplying excessive voltage or current to an
output load. If voltage or current reaches the protection level setting,
the power supply disables the outputs.
CAUTION. To prevent damaging a circuit under test, set protection
levels before you apply power to the circuit.
Setting the OVP
The OVP (overvoltage protection) circuit automatically disables the
output when the voltage on the output reaches the set level.
Press OVP SET → (number) → (return
) to enter the OVP level.
Example: Set the overvoltage protection for Output 1 to 6 volts:
1. SHIFT → OUT1
2. OVP SET → 6 → (return
)
Pressing the OVP SET again momentarily displays the OVP level
and allows you to confirm the setting.
Resetting the OVP
Using the previous example, if the Output 1 voltage reaches 6 volts,
the power supply automatically disables the output and displays the
message “Err –013.”
To reset the OVP, correct the condition causing the overvoltage and
press SHIFT → OVP RESET
Setting the OCP
Pressing OCP ON (overcurrent protection on) sets the power supply to
automatically disable the outputs upon reaching the current limit.
The OCP indicator appears on the display when the OCP is on.
8
PS2520, PS2520G, PS2521 & PS2521G User Manual
Operating Basics
When the OCP circuit disables the output, it displays the message
“Err –012”. When this happens, correct the setup and remove the
error message by toggling OCP off and then on again.
When the OCP is not on, the power supply still limits the current to
the set level and reduces the voltage as necessary to control the
power. Refer to the following section for instructions on how to set
the current limit.
Setting Voltage and Current Limits
The power supplies provide either constant voltage or constant
current to a load. The voltage limit, current limit, and the size of the
load connected to the output determines whether the power supply
holds the voltage constant or the current constant. The appropriate
indicator appears on the display to indicate whether constant voltage
(C.V.) or constant current (C.C.) is active.
Using the Keypad to Set Limits
Press VOLTS SET → (number) → (return
limit.
) to enter the voltage
Press CURRENT SET → (number) → (return
current limit.
) to enter the
Example: Set the voltage of Output 3 to 4.2 volts with a maximum
current of 0.3 amperes.
1. Select Output 3:
SHIFT → OUT3
2. Set the voltage level of the output to 4.2 V:
VOLTS SET → 4.2 → (return
)
3. Set the current limit of the output to 0.3 A:
CURRENT SET → .3 → (return
)
The power supply keeps the voltage constant if the load does not
require more than 0.3 amperes. The power supply indicates C.V. on
the display.
PS2520, PS2520G, PS2521 & PS2521G User Manual

Operating Basics
Once the load tries to draw more than 0.3 amperes, however, the
supply holds the current to 0.3 amperes (unless OCP is on) and
allows the voltage level to vary accordingly. The power supply then
indicates C.C. on the display.
Setting Voltage and Current Steps
The CURRENT and VOLTS
(step up) and
(step down) arrow
keys allow you to make minor adjustments to the current and voltage
settings.
The STEP SET function determines the amount that the arrow keys
increment or decrement the setting when you press them.

NOTE. The power supplies permit voltage steps up to 2.000 V and
current steps up to 0.200 A.
Example: Set voltage steps to 0.5 V and current steps to 0.1 A.
1. Set voltage steps to 0.5 V:

Operating Basics
Connecting the Outputs
After setting the voltage and current limits, turn the power off and
connect the outputs to one or more loads. The binding posts on the
front outputs accept wires, spade lugs, or banana plugs. The rear
output terminals provide additional output connections. You can
make connections with or without reference to ground to each supply
independently, in series or in parallel.
WARNING. To avoid electrical shock and damage to circuits
connected to the outputs, make sure that you turn the power supply
off before making or changing output connections.
Referencing Outputs to Ground
There are two types of power supply connections in relation to
ground: isolated ground or ground referenced. Figure 6 shows both
types of connections.

Figure 6: Isolated-Ground Connection
Use an isolated-ground connection when it is unnecessary or
undesirable to connect one of the outputs to ground.
To reference an output connection to ground, do one of the
following:
H Connect the positive output to the ground terminal to supply a
negative voltage across the load.
PS2520, PS2520G, PS2521 & PS2521G User Manual

Operating Basics
H Connect the negative output to the ground terminal to supply a
positive voltage across the load.
NOTE. The ground post on the power supply internally connects to
earth ground through the power supply chassis and line cord.
Independent Operation
Independent operation allows you connect each of the three outputs
to separate loads or to connect the outputs in series or in parallel with
external connections. When the outputs are in the independent mode
of operation, the SERIES and PARA indicators are not lighted. See
Figure 7 for examples of independent output connections.

Operating Basics
Master/Slave Operation
The SERIES and PARA controls on the front panel allow you to
internally connect Output 1 and Output 2 in series or parallel. When
you do this, Output 2 (the master output) sets Output 1 (the slave
output) to the same level as the Output 2 setting. These modes of
operation are also called series tracking and parallel tracking.
Output 3 is always independent. You can connect Output 3 in series
or parallel with the other outputs by using external connections only.
Table 1 shows the maximum output available for the power supplies
in SERIES and PARA operation

Press SHIFT → SERIES
The SERIES indicator lights.
Use the Output 2 settings to control the power to the load. The
Output 2 voltage setting should be one half of the total output
voltage desired. (The voltage across Output 1 and Output 2 in series
is twice that of Output 2.) The current setting for Output 2 controls
the maximum current available to the load. See Figure 12.

The OUT indicator appears and all outputs are active.
Press the OUTPUT ON/OFF button again to disable the outputs and

Sensing the Output Level
Although the front and rear output terminals simultaneously supply
power, the power supply senses the voltage level internally from
either the front or rear terminals. Use the SENSE selector located on
the rear panel to select the appropriate sense input. See Figure 15.
As the length of the output leads or the amount of output current
increases, the amount of voltage drop across the output leads also
increases. In this case, the internal sense connection does not
accurately measure the voltage across the load. To compensate for
20
PS2520, PS2520G, PS2521 & PS2521G User Manual
Operating Basics
this problem the power supply has auxiliary sense inputs on the rear
panel. Using these inputs, as illustrated in Figure 15, bypasses the
voltage dropped across the output leads and senses the voltage
directly across the load. It is best to use a shielded two-wire cable for
this connection to prevent extraneous noise from affecting the sense
measurement.
Remove shorting bars.
Load
Connect sense inputs across load.
Figure 15: Connecting the Auxiliary Sense Inputs
Storing and Recalling Settings
The power supplies allow you to store voltage and current settings in
as many as 50 different memory locations (00 – 49). Each location
stores the settings for all three outputs. You can recall the settings of
any location individually or you can step through the settings for
each memory location in sequence.
Storing a Setting
The Store function saves the front panel settings for OVP, voltage
limit, current limit, and delay timer in a specific memory location.
(The section that describes the delay timer operation begins on
page 24.)
Press SHIFT → STORE → (memory location number) →
(return ) to store the settings in memory.

Storing and Recalling a Sequence of Settings
To create an automatic test routine, you can program the power
supply to sequence through the settings stored in two or more
consecutive memory locations. You can recall the sequence of stored
settings either manually or automatically.
Manual Sequencing. Manual sequencing allows you to step through
the stored settings one at a time by pressing the RECALL NEXT or
RECALL LAST buttons.
1. Press SHIFT → STORE → (memory location number) →
(return ) to store a setting. Repeat for each new setting, using a
consecutive memory location for each setting.
