The two main supplies can be operated independently or in one of two tracking modes.
In the series tracking mode, the “A” and “B” supplies are connected in series, allowing a
single output of 0–60 V at up to 2 amps. In the parallel tracking mode, the two supplies are
connected together in parallel, allowing a single 0–30 V output at up to 4 amps.
Connection is made using either a banana plug inserted into the appropriate ‘+’ or ’−’
terminal or by connecting a short wire from the terminal to the breadboard. The central
green terminal (GND) will normally not be used. Breadboards
The name “breadboard ” comes from the days when electrical components were attached
by screws to large wooden boards. Modern breadboards are small plastic rectangles with

laboratory has two rows each of 50 holes along the top and bottom, and 64 colum...
