Supplying a Voltage

Last Modified: November 26, 2019

This example illustrates how to supply a voltage with the Variable Power Supplies (VPS) instrument:

  1. Connect VPS +/- and ground to the circuit under test, as shown in the following diagram:

    Refer to Connecting Signals to the Variable Power Supplies for more details about connecting to the VPS.
  2. Launch the VPS Soft Front Panel (SFP).
  3. Adjust the settings for the channel you have connected to.
  4. Click Run to start supplying a voltage. If the instrument is in Static mode, you can modify the voltage in real time by adjusting the setting while the instrument is running.

You may hear clicking sounds from the NI ELVIS III while operating the SFP. This is expected behavior and is due to the switching of internal relays.
