Hantek PPS2320A Programmable Power Supply Operation

The Hantek PPS2320A programmable power supply is an economical addition to the Circuit Specialists line of power supplies. It is a three-channel programmable power supply that may be used as a manually-controlled benchtop unit or you can control it with a computer.

The unit features two isolated programmable channels capable of operating from 0 to 32 volts and 0-3 amps independently, as well as a fixed output supply of 2.5, 3.3, or 5.0 volts all at up to 3 amps output current. The two programmable channels are completely isolated and may be used together in either series or parallel mode by pressing the switch on the front panel. In series mode the unit can provide 0-64 volts at 0-3 amps and in parallel mode it can provide 0-32 volts at 0-6 Amps.

The Hantek PPS2320A programmable power supply features the additional option of running the two programmable channels independently or, if you need a split power supply arrangement, the channels can track each other. You can save programmed settings for both voltage and current in onboard, non-volatile memory using the memory buttons on the front panel.

The standard USB interface makes it easy to connect with a computer running Windows, enabling you to remotely control the power supply and log data. The supplied software is simple to operate and allows you to see at a glance the unit’s operating parameters. All operating parameters and voltage or current values can be set and monitored using the intuitive graphical user interface. You can save real-time operational data in standard .csv format to the computer for future analysis.
