1.2.1 Voltage Output Checkout
The following steps verify basic voltage functions without load.
1. Turn on the power supply.
2. Enable the outputs.
Press key to let the ON annunciator and the CV annunciator turn on to light.
Notice: if the voltage value flash, then the power supply is in Set mode, ‘‘Set mode’’ means that the VFD
display shows the setting output voltage and current. Or the power supply is in Meter mode, ‘Meter
mode” means that the VFD display shows the actual output voltage and current and the ”Meter”
annunciator is lit.
3. Check that the front-panel voltmeter properly responds to number keys
Set some different voltage values, then wait till the Meter mode to check if the VFD displayed voltage
value is the same as the set voltage value, and to check if the VFD displayed current value is nearly
zero.
4. Ensure that the voltage can be adjusted from zero to the full rated value.
1.2.2 Current Output Checkout
The following steps check basic current functions with a short across the power supply’s output.
1. Turn on the power supply.
2. Disable the output
Press key to ensure that the output is disabled. The OFF annunciator is turned on.
3. Connect a short across (+) and (-) output terminals with an insulated test lead.
Use a wire size sufficient to handle the maximum current.
4. Enable the output.
Press key to ensure that the output is enabled. The OFF annunciator is turned off.
5. Adjust the voltage value to 1.0 volt.
Adjust the voltage to 1.0 volt to ensure the power supply is in CC operation mode. The CC annunciator
will turn on.
6. Adjust the current value.
Set some different voltage values, then wait till the Meter mode to check if the VFD displayed current
value is the same as the set voltage value, and to check if the VFD displayed voltage value is nearly
zero.
7. Ensure that the current can be adjusted from zero to the full rated value.
8. Turn off the power supply and remove the short wire from the output terminals.
WarningTo satisfy safety requirements, load wires must be heavy enough not to
overheat when carrying the maximum short-circuit output current of the power
supply. If there is more than one load, then any pair of load wires must be capable of
safety carrying the full-rated current of the power supply.

Chapter 3 Front-panel Operation
So far you have learned how to install your power supply and do quick start. During the quick start, you
were briefly introduced to operating from the front panel as you learned how to check basic voltage and
current functions. This chapter describes in detail the use of the front-panel keys and shows how they
are used to accomplish power supply operation.
This chapter is divided into the following sections:
• Front-Panel Operation Overview‚ on page 14
• Constant Voltage Operation‚ on page 15
• Constant Current Operation‚ on page 15
• Storing and Recalling Operating States‚ on page 15
• MENU operation, starting on page 16
3.1 Front-panel Operation Overview
The following section describes an overview of the front-panel keys before operating your power supply.
1. The power supply is shipped from the factory configured in the front-panel operation mode. At
power-on, the power supply is automatically set to operate in the front-panel operation mode. When in
this mode, the front panel keys can be used.
2. When the power supply is in remote operation mode, you cannot use the front-panel. A change
between front-panel and remote operation modes will not result in any change in the output
parameters. You can change the front-panel and remote operation modes by computer.
3. The power supply is in Meter mode when it is powered on, and the VFD will display the actual voltage
and current output value. And in this mode, if any non-functional key is pressed, the power supply will
changed to Set mode, and the VFD will display the adjusted voltage and current value. In Set mode,
the set voltage value will flash, you can press and keys to adjust the voltage value. In Set
mode, the power supply will turn back to Meter mode if there is no any key is pressed for 3 seconds.
4. The output of the power supply can be enabled or disabled from the front panel by pressing
key. When the output is on, the ON annunciator will turn off.
5. The VFD display shows the present operating status of the power supply with annunciators. For
example, the power supply is operating in CV mode, and then the CV annunciator will turn on. If, the
power supply is remotely controlled, the Rmt annunciator will also turn on, See ‘‘Display
Annunciators’’.
3.2 Constant Voltage Operation

Chapter 4 Remote Operation Mode
The DB9 interface connector on the rear panel of the power supply can be transferred to USB
(virtual com) interface, the following information will tell you how to use the computer to control the
output of the power supply.
4.1 IT-E132B Communication connector
The DB9 interface connector on the rear panel of power supply is TTL voltage level; you can use
the communication cable (IT-E132B) to connect the DB9 interface connector of the power supply
and the USB interface connector of computer for the communication.
4.2 Communication setting
Before using the remote operation mode, please make sure that the baud rate and communication
address in power supply are the same as in the computer software, otherwise, the communication will
fail, you can change the baud rate and communication address from the front panel or from computer.
1 Address: the range is from 0 to 254default setting is 0

4.3 Frame format
Packet structure
The power supply is programmed using packets of bytes. A packet always contains 26 bytes,
either going to or coming from the instrument. The basic programming rule is:
You send a 26 byte packet to the instrument. You then
read a 26 byte packet back from the power supply to
either
Get the status of your submitted packet, or
Get the data you requested.
Note: It will not work if you connect the DB9 interface connector of the power
supply to the RS232 interface connector of computer directly by a standard
RS232 cable. Please use IT-E132B to connect them.
21
The following are conventions we will follow in this chapter:
1. Hexadecimal integers will be represented by the prefix 0x.
2. Numbers are in base 10 number system unless otherwise indicated.
3. Byte numbering is zero-based, meaning numbering starts with 0.
The structure of each 26 byte packet is:
Byte 0
Byte 1
Byte 2
Byte 3 to 24
Byte 25
0xAA
Address
Command
Command's data
Checksum
Thus, the first byte of any command packet or returned packet is always 0xAA.
Address must be a byte that is between 0x00 and 0xFE. Setting of the address is optional. It
is not required to communicate with the instrument. The address can be set from the front
panel and is stored in non-volatile memory. This feature is useful when communicating via
USB, and connecting several instruments, e.g. via a USB hub. In this scenario, Windows
assigns a virtual COM port to each device which is unknown prior to establishing
communications with the instrument (could be different each time). In this case, the user can
correlate each virtual COM port randomly assigned by Windows with a user defined address.
Command is a byte that identifies which power supply command is used.
The area for the command's data contains parameter information for the command or the
data that is requested via a previous command. Some commands have no data at all. It is a
good programming practice to set all unused bytes to 0x00.
The checksum number is the arithmetic sum of each of the bytes modulo 256.
Status packets
When you send a command that does not cause the power supply to send requested
information back to you, you will receive a status packet back. The structure of a status
packet is
Byte 0
Byte 1
Byte 2
Byte 3
Byte 4 to 24
Byte 25

3 Command occupies a byte.
a 0x20----Setting the remote control mode
b 0x21----Setting the output ON/OFF state
c 0x22----Setting the maximum output voltage
d 0x23----Setting the output voltage
e 0x24----Setting the output current
f 0x25----Setting the communication address
g 0x26----Reading the present current/voltage, maximum voltage, setup voltage/current and
operation states of the power supply.
h 0x27----Enter the calibration mode
i 0x28----Reading the calibration mode state
j 0x29----Calibrate voltage value.
k 0x2A----Sending the actual output voltage to calibration program.

m 0x2C----Sending the actual output current to calibration program.
n 0x2D----Save the calibration data to EEPROM.
o 0x2E----Setting calibration information.
p 0x2F----Reading calibration information.
q 0x31----Reading product’s model, series number and version information.
r 0x32----Restoring the factory default calibration data.
s 0x37----Enable the local key.
t 0x12----The return information of command operation in power supply.
4. 4th to 25th bytes are information content
5. 26th byte is check sum, the sum of the former 25 bytes.
Note: You must change the power supply to remote control mode first, then you can control
the power supply output by computer. The command for remote control is 0x20.
If you want to calibrate the power supply, set the calibration information. If you want
to set the product serial number, you must set the calibration protection mode to OFF
state first. The command for calibration protection is 0x27. When the power supply
is in calibration mode, changes for the output state of power supply are not allowed.

Command Details:
In the following sections, we abbreviate the details of the commands. Since the first
three bytes of a command are i) the constant 0xAA, ii) the instrument address, and iii) the
command, we will not show those for each command. In addition, the 26th byte, the
checksum, will also not be shown.
The table includes a column for Byte offset. This is the zero-based index of the byte in
the packet. Note the offset numbers are in decimal.
A table entry of “Reserved” means the data are currently unused or reserved for future
use. Good programming practice is to set these bytes to 0x00.
Some commands require two byte and four byte integers to represent parameter
settings. These integers are stored in the command packet in little-endian format.
Little-endian is a byte ordering format in which bytes with lower addresses have lower
significance. We will refer to the individual bytes as follows:
For a two byte integer, the least significant byte will be called the low byte and the most
significant byte will be called the high byte.
For a four byte integer, we will use the following notation:
Least significant two bytes, least significant byte
Least significant two bytes, most significant byte
Lower high byte
Most significant two bytes, least significant byte
Higher low byte
Most significant two bytes, most significant byte
As an example, for the integer 0x23A749F5, we’d have
1st byte: 0xF5 Lower low byte
2nd byte: 0x49 Lower high byte
3rd byte: 0xA7 Higher low byte
4th byte: 0x23 Higher high byte
Higher high byte
Lower low byte

Chapter 5 PV1785B-1788 Software
5.1 Introduction
Software PV1785B-1788 is control software for IT1785B-1788 series programmable power supply. It can
work with all single-output power supply models. Please make sure that you purchased communication
cable, and use it to connect the power supply and computer before the communicating. This software
can accomplish all the functions of the power supply, such as setting constant voltage, setting constant
current, max voltage etc. Also you can make quickly settings or make a program for the output voltage
and current by the computer. In addition, PV1785B-1788 offer a GO/NG test function for automatic
factory testing. It brings you much convenience when you use the power supply.
5.2 System Installation
1Requirements for the computer
Pentium III or Pentium IV processor-based personal computer
Windows 98/2000/XP or Windows NT4.0
2. Insert the CD-Rom which supplied with the instrument to the CD driver, and install the software step
by step according to the instructions.
Note: When the power supply receives a frame command, it will check the frame
command, if the check sum is correct, then it will return to 0x80, if there is
any error on setting parameter or over parameter, then it will return to 0xA0,
if the command wasn’t executed, then it will return to 0xB0, if the command
isn’t effective, then it will return to 0xC0. Or otherwise, it will return to 0x80.
