CPX DC Supplies: Remote sense for precision regulation

CPX Series sense terminals

Remote voltage sense for "true" load regulation

Most laboratory power supplies quote impressive figures for load regulation. Unfortunately, the impedance of the connection leads can make this a nonsense for regulation at the load.

If the current is high, the meter will show a significantly higher voltage than the load is actually seeing. (for example, two 0.02 Ohm connection leads will drop 120mV at only 3 amps).

The CPX Series has easy access remote sense terminals - unlike many general purpose laboratory power supplies - to ensure perfect regulation and meter precision.

Remote or Local at the flick of a switch

Research shows that engineers choose not to use remote sense for many applications. The CPX Series makes the choice as easy as possible with a front mounted local/remote sense switch.
