Rigol 832 output 12V/5A via CH1 + CH2 ?
« on: November 24, 2015, 04:20:22 AM »
Hey Guys,

I'm just checking something, i need 12V/5A power supply.  My vendor forgot to send it, now i was thinking. If i use my Rigol 832 (max 30V / 3A per CH), connect CH1 + CH2 in parallel. Switch on the "track" function, set CH1 to 12V, it should deliver the 5A needed? Or am i missing something?  :-[

Thanks!

Indeed, page 2-9 in the manual http://www.batronix.com/pdf/Rigol/UserGuide/DP800_UserGuide_EN.pdf
