APPLICATION NOTES

Remote Sense terminals (only on models with output voltages of 48V and below):

Remote Sense terminals must be connected for the unit to operate properly. When connected in local sense (+S connected to +V output terminal and -S connected to -V output terminal), the output voltage is regulated at the output terminals.

If your load is connected more than a few inches away from the unit and you want to regulate the output voltage ON the load, remote sense is required. This means connecting the +S connection at the end of the +V wire (at the load), and the -S connection at the end of the -V wire (at the load). Since the load wires have current flowing through them and they have a certain resistance, there will be a voltage drop in them so that the output voltage at the load will be lower than the output voltage of the unit. Remote sense will prevent this be compensating for up to 1V of drop in the load wires. This means the output voltage of the unit will be up to 1V higher than the nominal value, so that at the load, the voltage will be the nominal value.

Example of local and remote sense connections, using the DC1-12S with a 0.2V drop in the wires connecting the +V and -V output terminals to the load.

Vout = Voltage on the output voltage terminals of the unit.

Vload = Voltage on the load where the wires are connected.

Vout = Vload + Vwire1 + Vwire2

So, Vload = Vout - Vwire1 - Vwire2

With local sense, Vout is regulated at 12V
So, Vout = 12V
Vload = Vout -Vwire1 - Vwire2
Vload = 12V - .2V - .2V

With remote sense, Vload is regulated at 12V
So, Vload = 12 V
Vout = Vload + Vwire + Vwire2
Vout = 12V +.2V + .2V = 12.4 Volts
The voltage drops in the wires connecting the +V and -V output terminals of the unit and the load depend on the size of the wire )or pcboard trace) and the current flowing through them.
