Power supplies will perform safely and as specified at the output terminals. In many applications, the tests on the DUT are not performed right at the power supply output terminals. With longer leads, higher wire gauges, and testing being performed further away from the power supply, it is desirable to regulate the power supply using the voltage and current at the test point, rather than at the terminals. Power supply features such as remote sense and remote disable allow the power supply regulate its output and even shut down based upon what is happening at the load. Learn tips on how to use these features in your tests.
