Rigol DP832 Review

The majority of the review is available in movie format:

I purchased a Rigol DP832 power supply from RAE Electronics (local supplier). I had a chance to play around with it and wanted to leave a bit of a review.

To begin, I also bought some useful accessories. I got them from Digikey, and here are the part numbers:

  • Test Leads: Ponoma B-24-x, where x changes for color
  • Aligator Clips: Digikey 461-1208-ND
  • Minigrabbers: Ponoma 4723-0 / 4723-2

I think those are the most useful accessories to get. Buy at least 4 supply cables, maybe more as if you want to have +/- supplies it’s nice to have a colour for ‘0v’.

I ended up making a GUI, which is available at: https://github.com/colinoflynn/dp832-gui :
