Rigol PS1308A – Triple Output Power Supply
The Rigol PS1308A is a really nice unit. Very stable, clean output. Beautiful user interface, that’s simple and intuitive. There’s even an ethernet connection with a web interface. I haven’t tried out the USB connection with LabView yet.
- 3 output, 80 watt PSU
- 0 to +6 volts at 0-5 amps
- 0 to +25 volts at 0-1 amp
- 0 to -25 volts as 0-1 amp
- individually switched outputs, and all on/off
Set the desired voltage and the system will display the set point, and the voltage as measured at its outputs. On the PS1308A, this is just a 2-wire approach, the PS1116 uses a 4-wire setup.
By default, the display shows all 3 outputs at once, but you can zoom/focus on just one. If I’m just using one output, then I’ll set it to just focus on that.

I’ll see about posting some tests at a variety of loads… not sure when I’ll get to that.
