Looks good, would like to see this one tested on Dave's bench. Looks like Rigol has come to sense with the display and controls.

Yeah, the RS232 interface is a bit odd. Other than that seems like a nice PSU.

Hopefully Dave gets one to teardown / review!

Don't seem to find an international dealer for it though...

Well, my old PC from February 2000 has an USB port. My PC from October 2009 has NO RS-232 port. Most nowadays computers do the same.
But it looks like a nice PSU anyway. Maybe I prefer a big LED display.

Rigol actually chose to make this unit  on purpose with RS 232. I think this has mainly to do with the type of customers or market they feel might use the power supply.  You can always purchase a USB-RS232 or LAN-RS232 adapter/converter. This isn't available from Rigol so you'd have to purchase that individually..

You can control the DP700 by PC by using a 9 Pin RS2322 Female -Female straight cable to connect the DP 700 to the PC and then control by SCPI programming  or PC  software like the Ultra Sigma Software.

It seems rather expensive for only 1 channel.

It would have been nice if the Power measurement would be aligned on the right,
together with Voltage and Current measurements.

Its probably going to have a HIRES option like the DP800 models have that gives an extra digit of resolution, at which point voltage and current would be aligned with power.

Edit: Checking Rigol's site for the DP700s does indeed show that HIRES is an option.

Hello it seems Rigol hasn't added the remote sense since this power supply is intended to be used on a lab or desk, where the distance to the DUT is not far away.
Any question, please ask. We have some DP711 to test in case of special request.

Is anyone using these PSU's yet? The DP711 looks like a good fit for me. I know that the DP832 is popular, but it's 50% more $$$ and I'm really digging the 30V/5A single channel of the DP711. Any feedback would be appreciated.

@Nuzzler: In the US, this supply isn't that appealing. Unless you really need a new product, you can get more bang for the buck buying used and we've got access to lots of great used gear.

Simone, could you please take a short video of powered up DP711? Please? :) :)

Don't know how, but your YT videos are only one on a whole internet. They are great, but i guess i'm not the only one who would like to see how they actually works... To see some screens from menus, how fast and responsive is UI, etc..

I'm in doubt between DP832 and DP711, mostly because i prefer 30V/5A more then 30V/3A.
But it is also nice to have 3 chanel for rather small aditional payment. I'm really not smart, and it would really mean a lot to me to see such a short review. Just a shoot with better cell phone, without editing.

And you will get great exposure, if you advertise your video, because you will be only one on a whole earth!  :)

Thanks a ton!
Regards.

If you parallel channels 1 and 2 on the DP832 you can do 30V/6A or in series 60V/3A.

Hey Beard, thanks. I guess if I understand well, you could simply connect both output 1 & 2 on the same circuit, and manually calculate value, or Rigol do that for you?

Thanks.

Batronix has them: http://www.batronix.com/shop/rigol/DP700.html . They're in Germany ;)

It shows each channel individually, but you can link them so that they both stay at the same value. On the DP832 thread, the first attachment has information on how to connect it in series and parallel. http://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/rigol-dp832-firmware-updates-and-bug-list/?action=dlattach;attach=79494 should be a direct link to the PDF.

Yes, thanks, http://www.batronix.com/pdf/Rigol/UserGuide/DP800_UserGuide_EN.pdf on 58 Adobe PDF page, or 2-8, as in manual.

There is explanation, but as i'm not had oportunity to work with Bench PS, i'm not sure in reality, how all that looks like...

Please excuse the kludgey setup and rubbish cell phone photography.



Top two photos are series, bottom two are parallel. The DP832 is setup with channel 1 set to 5V and 0.5A, tracking is turned on so that channel 2's voltage tracks. That is, if I change channel 1 then channel 2 changes too. You don't have to use tracking, it's just convenient if you are going to be using it as a split supply.

Since I seem to have also failed at getting the leads fully in shot, series is wired with CH1 +ve to the DMM, CH1 -ve to CH2 +ve and CH2 -ve to DMM. Parallel setup is hopefully obvious.

I really don't know why Stupid Beard, even as a joke... :)

You save me of buying DP711... at least for now... Photos are really great. If i see well, that small link, like infinity sign, actually represent connection between two adjacent channels?

Actually, procedure you are talking about is this one:

Thanks again for your effort! Really appreciated a ton!

I wasn't sure if I was understanding you correctly, but I looked at the manual page you linked and could see why someone would be confused so figured I'd post it anyway. Hopefully it helped.

Yes, that's correct. For what it's worth, my only complaints about the DP832 are how loud the fan is and how I am too lazy to replace the fan with a quieter one. I don't know what the DP711 is like, but I use two channels quite often so I'm glad the DP711 didn't exist when I bought my DP832.

Thanks again for your effort! Really appreciated a ton!

You're welcome.

New PSU Series DP7xx ...
Looks nice ... but ...
RS232 ? without USB at 2016 ?

http://int.rigol.com/Product/Model/85/487

Looks like quite a nice device. I do like the classic RS232 interface - I've done several test beds that use the RS232 interface from a simple microcontroller or a bit of VBA in Excel.
