Hi, I've just received a new DP832 unit.

Version information :

Analog Version  : 04.02.04.03.02.04
Boot Version    : 01.09
Keyboard Version: 01.01

All the options were activated just fine using riglol.

Thanks for the useful info on this blog !

You can turn the DP832 into a DP832A using a 'magic' USB stick and a single SCPI command; there's a thread here that has all the instructions.

I'd like the round font (DP832A) instead the seven digit one, but can someone confirm if DP832A have the option for monochrome gray display ?
I prefer it instead of "3 colour" version.

Regarding DP832 with all options activated vs DP832A, are there any differences (outside the round font) ?

Thanks !

All the displays that the DP832 can do are available in the DP832A menus, you can have a 'monochrome' display in any single color you want (I think).

In the end I've converted to DP832A because I've just did the same thing for DL3021 and there was no monochrome option. By the way, the same thing for DP832A.

There is no unitary color scheme between DP and DL interfaces. So instead of two monochrome clean interfaces now I have these strange color interfaces.

But I take it as a compromise for the activated options  ;D

I quickly got used to and came to prefer the DP832A's pie chart display.  I also bought colored LEDs to replace those on the front display so I could have colors that matched the display but I haven't got round to fitting them yet.

Good idea, I will replace ch2 and ch3 on/off LEDs in order to match the display  :-+

I updated the first post with official version for firmware release 1.16 (and removed the download for the beta).

I don't have a DP832 power supply at the moment so I'm unable to test resolution of any further issues.  Please reach out and let me know if there'a anything further needs editing in first post.

Best,
Sparky
