66xxA, E363xA and E364xA: Ca Keysight Power Supplies Sink Current?
Yes! Sinking, or down-programming, is the ability to pull current into the positive terminal of a power supply.

FAQ 2013-01-22

When I put a N6700 family DC Power Supply module into my mainframe, I get error 207 listed on the front panel when I turn the unit on. What does th...
Error 207 means “calibration file version error”. This means that the module was calibrated in a N6700B mainframe with a version of firmware that is newer than the version of firmware in the mainframe where it is generating the error.

66xxA: Calibration Certificates
Criteria have been established to determine which products get or do not get a calibration from the factory. A product with a product number does not automatically qualify for a calibration certificate.

FAQ 2008-09-22

66xxA, E362xA, E363xA, E364xA: DC Power Supplies Connecting in Series or in Parallel
The resultant voltage for series connections cannot exceed the maximum floating voltage allowed for any on the component power supplies. While this is typically +/-240 volts dc, there are some supplies as low as +/-25 volts dc, and others as high ...

FAQ 2008-09-22

66xxA and E36xxA: P-P Voltage Noise Versus RMS Noise
Both Vp-p and Vrms are measures for the unwanted AC components of a DC power supply output. Peak-to-peak noise is measured from the maximum positive point on the waveform to the most negative voltage point.

FAQ 2008-09-22

Why doesn't my System Power Supply accept commands over the GPIB?
If you are getting either error 11 or error 113 when you try to send GPIB commands to your system supply, it may be that you are using the wrong command language.

FAQ 2008-07-29

Do I need to order option 054 (High Speed Test Extensions) for the N6751A, N6752A, and N6754A High Performance DC Power Modules, when I plan on usi...
Option 054 is not required when the DC Power Module will be used in a DC Power Analyzer.

FAQ 2007-11-04

How can I offset the voltage drop caused by long cable lengths from my dc power supply to the device under test (DUT)?
Normally, Keysight power supplies are delivered configured to deliver their full specs at the output terminals. In some application, where long lead lengths to the DUT are unavoidable, the regulation of the power supply at the DUT can be significan...

FAQ 2007-06-01

How do I clear non-volatile memory locations for security purposes?
For Keysight Model 66000A, each module has 5 states where data can be saved (0 to 4). State 'zero' is the wake-up state. To clear all states, save ZERO into each state.
