Abstract

A technique is described whereby a simple adjustable power supply testing network provides adjustable voltage levels which can be operated either manually or through a personal computer. The simplicity of the adjustable power supply testing network is such that expensive programmable power supplies are not required to perform automated testing procedures. Two applications are described in the use of the simple adjustable power supply testing networks through a selection of appropriate relays and potentiometers.
