PLH Series DC Power Supplies: Remote Sense

Sense terminals

Remote sense for precision regulation

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.

Although the lower currents of the PLH series makes voltage drop in the leads a less significant problem than with lower voltage power supplies, perfect regulation still requires sensing at the load.

The PLH Series has easy access remote sense terminals - unlike many 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 PLH Series makes the choice as easy as possible with a front mounted local/remote sense switch.
