Product Information

Triple Output, 195 Watt Power Supply

 

Build Remote Communication You can build the remote communication between DP800 and PC over USB, LAN, RS232 or GPIB (option, can be extended via the USB-GPIB interface converter) interface.

Remote Controls Methods
  • User-defined Programming
    You can program and control the instrument using the SCPI (Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments)
  • Send SCPI Commands via the PC Software
    You can control the power supply remotely by sending SCPI commands via the PC software (Ultra Sigma) provided by RIGOL.
SCPI Command Overview
SCPI (Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments) is a standardized instrument programming language that is built upon the standard IEEE488.1 and IEEE 488.2 and conforms to various standards (such as the floating point operation rules in IEEE754 standard, ISO646 7-bit coded character for information interchange (equivalent to ASCII programming)). This section introduces the syntax, symbols, parameters and abbreviation rules of the SCPI commands.

SCPI Status Registers
All the SCPI instruments execute the status register operations in the same way. The status system records the various instrument states into three register sets: status byte register, standard event register, and questionable status register sets. The status byte register records the advanced summary information
reported by other register sets. The SCPI status systems of the DP800 series multi-channel models.
 

OVERVIEW

 

The Rigol DP832 is a very high-quality programmable laboratory power supply with three switchable outputs (+30 V/3 A, +30 V/3 A and +5 V/3 A) and a maximum power output of 195 W.

Like all Rigol devices, the power supply features a very well constructed and easy to use interface offering comprehensive ease-of-use functions, such as programmable voltage curves. The menu has an intuitive structure.

The Rigol DP832 features a relatively large (8.9 cm / 3.5") and easy to read TFT monochrome display. In addition to the normal digital displays for voltage, current, and power, these values can also be displayed as signal curves. A timer control can be used to set the output signal to different values in up to 2048 steps.

The DP800 Series Power Supplies combine the ability to source, analyze, and coordinate over time in a powerful new package. The DP800 Series is a family of linear power supplies systems with 3 outputs and up to 195 Watts in total. With one channel isolated, users can reconfigure instruments into any number of systems or applications.

Built in V, A, and W measurements make power monitoring easy, but additional wave tracking, timing, and analysis features mean there are even more ways to use the supplies. New digital triggering between instruments also makes it possible to reliably combine and connect supplies together. Intuitive to use for everything from education labs to the R & D bench, the DP800 family of power supplies provide incredible value for any application.

Typical Applications
  • R&D Lab general purpose testing
  • Quality Assessment inspection
  • Bias power for RF/MW circuits
  • Automotive electronic test
  • Production testing
  • Device or circuit characterization and troubleshooting

Good

Seems to work well. Only issue I had was being careful with the highlighted voltage digit. one button press took me from 3.3v to 13.3v. Unit is very deep.

A Great Value in a Programmable Power Supply

I have used this programmable power supply now for several projects over about a month to characterize the V-I characteristics of a series of TVS diodes. This power supply has shown itself to have outputs that are surprisingly accurate, stable, and quiet. Setting up a series of precise test voltages with a precise current limit was a snap. The unusual circular numeric keypad looks odd, but in practice it's very easy to become accustomed to it and I don't think it's a bad thing at all. Setting up voltages and currents with it is quite easy with very little practice. As others have no doubt mentioned, this unit does have a fan, however at the low output power levels I used the noise level was minimal and not annoying to me at all.

Excellent Power Supply

The Rigol DP832 has been working great for me. It is very intuitive and easy to operate, and the quality of the DC output is superb. I really enjoy the ability to turn each channel on and off individually. The reason I removed 1 star is because: 1) The High Resolution Display/Control should be a standard feature, instead of an extra $110 for the unlock code. Everyone can benefit from the fine resolution control. I am OK with the other locked features being extra cost, since not everyone can use them. 2) I wish there was a way to internally configure the power supply to put channels 1 and 2 in series. They can be manually connected with a short jumper wire, but cheaper power supplies have this feature...and I am naturally lazy enough to not want to walk across the lab to get a jumper cable. Overall, a great power supply for a decent price.

Best bang for the buck ! By far !

It has all the features that a high end has and it's reliable, low noise, great interface, good construction, lots of features, really well made ! I don't think we have anything near this bang for the buck in the market today, even with the "better" ones ( much more expensive ones ) the gain is marginal, unless you need something more specific, other than that this is the one.

Great Power Supply

As most others have said, this is a great power supply. I spent a lot of time researching power supplies in the $500 - $600 CDN range and the DP832 really stood out. After receiving the supply and using it on a few projects I am pleased to say it performed flawlessly. Easy to use, great display, and is more than accurate enough for everything I plan to do with it.

I'm sure there are 'higher-end' power supplies out there, but we just need an easy-to-use, reliable unit with very few bells and whistles. Overcurrent/overvoltage protection is handy, and has saved a couple of components on my bench.

Nice power supply

I'm very happy with the supply. Having a good linear supply on my bench is important as it doesn't have all the high frequency noise a cheap switcher has. I looked at several reviews including the one on eevblog and have found it works well and meets my expectations. It took a bit to get used to the user interface however in now find it easy to use. I recently used it to charge the lipo batteries in a piece of gear, being able to current limit was important and it worked very well. I plan to buy the hires display option, the only reason I gave it 4 stars is it doesn't come with the option from Rigol.

Fantastic Power Supply

This is a very impressive power supply. I love all the features which really set it apart from cheaper typical power supplies. You might also want to order test leads along with it. Some reviews around the internet complained about the dial knob but I see no problem with it and don't see why it was an issue. Very happy with my purchase. Working with TEquipment was a complete joy on this purchase. They were amazingly helpful, fantastic service !

Outstanding Product

This is easily my favorite power supply of all that I have purchased.

Features I like:

1. quality and accuracy of output (very low noise),

2. the ability to (optionally) do a full power cut-off on over-current,

3. the default start-up mode with outputs being off (while you make adjustments) and then you can switch them on when you have the output(s) set as desired, and the ability to turn off the outputs while you make adjustments. Aside from the obvious circuit-board safety factor this provides, this also makes it undeniably safe to leave your equipment attached between sessions.

4. One thing I really, really like is its user interface -- probably best in the industry. While it is a good idea to dig into the manual and practice every operation, once you have done so, you will probably never need to refer to the manual again. Reason: the interface (button sequences, etc.) is very intuitive, and gets my highest compliments in that they have also managed to make it VERY DIFFICULT to use incorrectly. In other words, it is very difficult to do anything that would damage your circuit boards by accident. It is VERY easy and quick to get what you want.

Also, when you want a specific output setting, there are typically 2 or 3 ways to get it, and each method is intuitive.

Features I MIGHT change (undecided):

1. The layout of the numeric buttons in a circle is different. However, I have not found this to be annoying or encumber my use of this power supply in any way. Two things that I actually find NICE about this are:

a. the fact that they surround the adjustment knob, which makes for proximity of controls that provide alternate ways to achieve a specific output setting, and

b. the fact that I am MUCH LESS LIKELY to hit a numeric button that is very far away (value-wise) from the button I intended. In other words, if you want '8', it is quite difficult to hit '5' by accident. I suspect this is an intentional user interface design to reduce errors (which in the world of powering [sometimes expensive, prototype] circuit boards, is much appreciated by me).

If I was going to stock up a team of technicians with power supplies, this is the one I would purchase.

An Excellent Power Supply

I bought two of these power supplies. Initially one of the was faulty, but Rigol and Tequipment took care of it very quickly:) These ARE the updated DP832 power supplies. I bought these power supplies because I felt like that I would be getting a lot for the price. They are right there on that fine line between a cheap lab power supply and a very expensive one. They look amazing, they have a good amount of weight to them, the display is amazing as well. A total win.

Professional quality, hobbyist price

I've used Keysight/Agilent, Tek, Fluke, etc. test equipment for decades and had some bad experiences with low-priced import brands, so I was suprised upon receiving the Rigol DP832 how well it was constructed, the clarity of it user manual, and its overall quality. An excellent value and great performance! I will consider Rigol for all future equipment needs.

Great value

A pleasure to use. Seems to have excellent build quality and very precise when checked against my other bench equipment. Has more options than I can foresee ever needing really. Great value for the price even when compared to the cheapest stuff on the auction sites. It's almost fun to use. Really impressed with the value of Rigol products so far.

Rigol DP832 w/Hi-Res Option

In my energy research, I had a problem with a Tek PS2520G power supply that could not handle negative energy being fed back to the supply from a pulsed rotating electromagnetic field device and decided to purchase the Rigol DP832 after reading it's reviews. The supply performed flawlessly and handled the reverse energy perfectly. I also find the power output display convenient as well as all the display options. I am so impressed with the DPDP832, I would purchase another is needed!

Rigol DP832

Bought this specifically for the LAN control but it doesn't do LAN commands well, IMHO. Too fast and it hangs up the instrument. Does not appear to conform to the IEEE commands it supports, namely "*OPC?" for synchronization. One is supposed to be able to issue this command and wait until the instrument completes all previous commands, but the DP832 sees this and others (sometimes) as an invalid command,. Appears to need arbitrary time delays between commands, some times, so one is never sure if you've added enough delay. This leads to too slow scripting and erratic faults so never sure if a long scripted measurement will work or not.

Tequipment Response: The DP832 (with the interface option to enable LAN communication) is commonly used both for benchtop front panel operation and remote automation. Regardless of whether the program is using LXI, USB, or GPIB we recommend adding delays on the order of 100-200 milliseconds between commands. Because of the standard time in which a DC power supply responds and services these requests we find that to be sufficient a majority of the time. Certain commands such as creating or editing sweeps or saving and recalling setups can take longer and care should be taken. The *OPC command is supported and can be used, but should only be used for certain asynchronous operations. Sending repeated *OPC commands every 10 milliseconds to see when it is ready can overwhelm the buffer service just like sending other commands too quickly. Given the speed and capability at which the DP800 series set and measure voltages and currents one can fully utilize its capabilities with a delay set between commands.

Being able to set the max ADJUSTABLE current or voltage is a great idea. Now you don't have to worry about having a senior moment and over adjusting the setting output by mistake when you are working on sensitive devices.

Banana Plug Don't Fit Positive terminals

Great product. The only complaint is the tolerance of the Positive connector. For some reason my Elenco banana plug fit on the negative terminals but not the positive. I am not sure if this is by design or just parts that are too tight.

ICE, INC, Rigol DP832

We added the Rigol DP832 programmable output DC power supply to our electronics test bench. Not only was it a great addition, it was a great subtraction; getting rid of a dual 12 vdc, and two 24 vdc chassis type power supplies and all the associated fuse contraptions for low current protection. The Rigol unit is rock solid with clean power ; fast and easy setup. We make use of the over current limiters for fragile 4-20ma (32ma limit) analog loop development.

Best bang for the buck

This power supply is worth three times it's cost, compared to more well known brands.

It's only issue is a relatively high impedance between the common grounds of CH2 and CH3, so if current sinks from one channel to the other, voltage regulation is affected. Easily solvable though.

This device is really nice and works just like you'd expect. I own a single position variable power supply but it doesn't hold a candle to this guy. The operation of this device is particularly easy.

Solid smart and stable PSU

Well, try to find PSU close to Rigol DP832 in abilities and comparable by price AND with same reliability... I bet you'll be unable to.

Numeric keyboard is surprisingly comfortable to type values, information displayed is clear and interface has almost no learning curve.

You can upgrade this PSU to same precision as almost twice expensive DP832A, add LAN and monitor/analyze and then think hard how to utilize all that stuff =)

Since overheating issues fixed with revised version (I think it's been 2 years since then) - it's time proven reliable and precise PSU capable to handle all needs for home or repair lab.

Rigol - still the best in mid-range price segment!

P.S. And you don't want 832A because it has different way of displaying information. Trust me. Colored buttons and messy UI don't worth extra $350.

DP832 triple output power supply

This is a precision triple output power supply. It has 2 independent 0-30 volt outputs and one 0-5 volt output.. The middle 0-30 volt supply is not isolated from the 5 volt supply. This will probably never cause a problem in my case.
I like the corner bumpers which allow me to stand the power supply on end instead of setting it on a table if the situation merits it. This unit is upgradable to one extra digit if it is useful to you. The upgrade should be less than $100.00 US$. Too many features to mention. The only thing so far that Rigol could improve on this is to make the adjustment control knob stick out more so that you are not wheeling it around with your finger. Other than that the supply seems to be a very good buy for the price!

Rigol DP832

I've had this power supply for a couple of days, and I can say that I'm very happy with it. It does everything I could ask for in a unit at this price. It has a very friendly interface, allowing multiple ways to adjust voltage/current set point.

It's worthwhile to note that this unit has a color LCD screen but the interface is monochrome. It would have been nice if the three outputs were color-coded, but I guess that is a distinguishing feature of the DP832A, the higher-end model.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this power supply.

Good Value for a Programmable Bench Supply

I just received my DP832 a couple of days ago. It arrived double-boxed in two sturdy, close-fitting double-walled cardboard cartons, with ample fitted padding to survive the worst punishment it might receive in transit. I wish that more products were packaged so well for shipment.

I had no trouble bringing up remote control over USB from my Mac using python-usbtmc and python-ivi, both of which are available at Github. Note that license keys are required to enable remote control over Ethernet. After entering them (a somewhat laborious process), it was easy to bring up network remote control using python-ivi and python-vxi11.

I would have preferred a traditional rectangular arrangement of number keys over the odd circular arrangement, but that's really just a nitpick. Entering voltage and current settings is easy using either the encoder knob or the keys.

The "All on/off" button turns off power with a single push, but turning power on requires a confirmation on the menu keys under the display. That surprised me a bit based on experience with other programmable supplies which don't require the confirmation, but it's probably a bit safer. Turning individual outputs on or off just requires a single push of their dedicated on/off keys.

Overall, I think this power supply is a good value.

Good value

I have put the Rigol DP832 through a series of test/evaluations and find it good in all respects. It is easy to use, quite accurate and should suit almost everyone's needs.

The software is not top-level, but is useful; I had to export data to a csv file, which opens in Excel, to determine the energy (power x time) used by an LED array that I evaluated.

One minor nit is the additional cost for more accuracy and other features; but this seems to be the way of much current technology.

Rigol DP832

Have had this unit for about nine months and it has been working great. It is easy to use. Was a little worried about the circular numeric input being a little goofy but works fine. The power supply has nice logging features. For example, you can attach a USB thumb drive and have the power supply log voltage and current every second (you can choose the log rate). Feature works great, however, output is a little cryptic. Rigol does provide a documentation sheet to make sense of the ROF (data log file). I submitted a request to Rigol saying that it would be nice to have a Windows program to parse the data. Rigol says they are working on it. Rigol did supply an Excel spreadsheet to help deocode the data. A nice supply.

The DP832 is a great instrument for the price

This unit has become my main power supply because of the ease of which I can set the outputs.
I upgraded to the 1 mv/ma option. When I set a voltage it is always within the 1 mv range I want. Normally it is spot on. My Agilent voltmeter confirms the values on the display are accurate.
I am very pleased with the unit.

No problems at all with this power supply. It's a nice mid-range unit that does everything I need in the lab. The circular arrangement of the number buttons is a little annoying, but I got over it.

Hobbyist Review

I'm a hobbyist slowly learning more about electronics, and buying a non wall-wart power supply was a big step, but I've been very happy with this unit.

It's been easy to work with, it's made it much easier to change things around on my workbench, and it's made it possible for me to really understand power draw for the first time.

I'm very pleased!

Well designed, easy to use

for many years I have been looking at getting a bench power supply for my electronics projects. I had been building small power supply's to get by, but feel that this purchase was a necessary upgrade. I have only used this power supply a few times since it arrived, but the experiances are great. I really like the over current/voltage protections for when I am building test circuits. This unit will come in very handy. I highly recommend this unit to anyone looking to buy. This unit has many great features, but is not too complicated for new players to electronics. I also have had great experiences with the Rigol DS1102E oscilloscope for many years, so I don't see why this power supply can't be any different.

A great price for a good power supply

This power supply is a great buy. What makes it really nice is it's upgradable via software. You can purchase the model that has everything unlocked for about double the price of this one, or you can pay to unlock only the features that you need on this model. For example, if you want to be able to hook this up to the network and control it via the local area network, just pay to get the unlock code to enable Ethernet. Another great thing about this power supply is the wealth of support from people on the forums like EEVBlog. This is great in case something goes wrong with this unit when it's no longer covered under warranty. You can simply log into the forums and ask advice on how to fix it. I think that's wonderful. There was one issue with my unit that was a little displeasing. It turns out some of these units shipped with the wrong banana plugs. On my unit, two of the input jacks are just to dang small. The company was more than willing to send me adapters and although I do appreciate the adapters, I would of rather of had replacement jacks sent so I could replace the bad ones myself. Rigol knows of this problem and they have fixed it but there's still a chance you might get one of the defective units. I am positive if I wanted to return my unit to get another one without the same problem, Rigol would of sent me another unit.

Excellent Power Supply

Well built, easy to use, very versatile bench supply. Have shopped around and used many power supplies and for the money this one is the best, has features that match or exceed more expensive units, and can be upgraded for a fair price should you need the extra capabilities this unit offers. Some dislike the numerical keypad layout but I find it intuitive and easy to use. The only con I can even think of with this unit is some of the banana connectors I have don't seem to fit or fit very easily. This could be the cheap ebay cables I purchased however.

Rigol DP832

I am quite pleased with the power supply and as I am just a hobbyist it was a big purchase for me. None the less as value per dollar I consider it rather inexpensive.

First the bad parts, the jacks are a little tight and all my leads don't fit in as well as they should. Once the warranty is off I will probably drill or sand them out. I find this quite annoying and feel it drags down the unit considerably when judging quality of build. The other thing I find quite annoying for me is the length of the unit. It is considerably longer than any other piece of equipment I have so it does not sit well on my bench. That being said I knew the length before I bought it and still went ahead. Two minor issues are the fan noise and it has a color screen, why not let a user use it as such.

Now the nice parts. I thought I would hate the keypad layout, turns out I love it. The unit is responsive and switches nicely as the power is brought up and down. It switches from output to output nicely and the display shows this clearly. Although I faulted the lack of nice color display patters the display is beautiful, it is crisp and easy to read even from across my bench.

To summarize, if I were to be able to choose this unit over again, I would. Hopefully my jumper leads will fit properly in a newer production model.

Tremendous Value

This bench power supply is incredible value at a $450 price point. It has all the features I was looking for plus options for upgrades. I also purchased the Hi-Res option for 1mv/ma resolution.

I agree with most people that the display is much better than on the DP832A. I don’t know what Rigol was thinking. It would have been nice to have a slightly larger display for my aging eyes, but it is definitely adequate.

I would have given it 5 stars if it were not for the issue of the output terminals. The banana plugs are inconsistent in sizes. I had to ream the holes out so they were all the same. Not that big a deal. For some it might be.

All in all, very happy with this unit.

A really nice power supply.

This is my first power supply and I'm so certain now that I have picked the correct one! There are cheaper ones out there with so many less features. This thing is great. Although right now I don't use the two extra outputs, I'm sure sooner or later they'll come in handy. I love how you can set the amperage and the volts. If I want 3.0V and 1.5A, I got it, if I want 3.5v, 1.5A, I got it. It also appears to be well built. It has some weight to it, it's not flimsy. It's nice and solid. The only thing I'd like to see different is the monochrome display. You can change the colour but everything is that one colour. You can't have mixed colours like you do with the DP832A. Still, for the price, you can't go wrong!!! I love how some of the features are software unlockable. If you don't need them, you're not paying for them! If you do need them, you can purchase them for a few (around 100$ per feature).

Awesome PS - high value, great features

This is a great power supply that provides great features, at a low cost. Build quality is superb- and coupled with the $100 add-on, it can deliver and measure in 1mv/ma increments. I use this unit for delivering regulated power to Harris and Motorola public safety radios during maintenance and repair.

I like the display on the 832 better than the higher model 832A, which I find to be a bit more complex and unnecessary.

This is the 4th device that I have from Rigol - every one has been superb value for the money and every one of them compare favorably with my "lab quality" units from Agilent and TEK.

Whether you're just starting your test bench, or already have lots of equipment - these Rigol units are definitely worth a look. Although priced a bit higher than some of the other "economy" units, they perform very well.

DP832 Leaves nothing to be desired

Controls are intuitive (except for entering options codes), display is well organized, voltage output is well within spec (according to my DM3068), fan noise is ok and all the features I've tried so far work flawlessly. The DP832 is an easy-to-recommend bench supply for precision power needs - I've been using it for mostly 3V electronics and the precision output for testing brownout conditions are exactly what I needed. It's so nice not to need a multimeter to verify the voltage on the P/S anymore.

Is there a downside to this P/S?

There's not a lot to say about a product when everything "just works". Controls are intuitive, voltage output is WELL within spec according to my DM3068 and I haven't any issues yet. My only potential gripe is that the fan is a bit loud at full output and only acceptably loud/quiet at idle where it's fairly similar to the noise of my MSO4014. At least it's just a "whir" though and not a rattle. All things considered - it's a top notch P/S and I'd highly recommend for anyone needing a precision bench supply.

Great power supply for the money

I have been using this power supply for a few weeks now and I so far I like it. The interface might seem a bit weird at first with the ring of number buttons, but it works pretty well once you've gotten used to it. Based on the limited test gear that I have, it appears to be well within its claimed specifications. I've been able to leave it for long periods of time (2 hrs) outputting ~60 watts out of two channels without issue.

The only issue I have with this power supply is the calibration date. I understand that there will be some time lost due to shipping and time in a warehouse, but the unit I received will require calibration only 2 months after receiving it. I don't care that much about the calibration because I'm using this for my electronics hobby, but I'm sure some people will.

Rigol user

I received the Rigol DP832 and Fluke TL221 yesterday, in good condition, opened and examined parts and components. Today I installed the HI-RES license key and am proudly well on my way to repairs that have been waiting on my bench. Thanks to the folks at TEquipment for the quotes and great prices.

DP832 Power Supply

Just purchased the DP832 a week ago... I was initially worried about what looks to be kind of an odd interface for number entry but was proved wrong. Have used the the supply several times with different loads and it has been very easy to use. Accuracy of the volts and amps appears very accurate. Attached the output to my electronic load and both units agreed on voltage and current measurements. Is also nice to have watts calculated and displayed. Need to explore some of the logging capabilities of the supply. Pleased so far with the purchase.

Fantastic power supply

This is a great power supply. The user interface is easy to use and it is packed with useful features. Current limiting works very well and is suitable for battery charging (constant current transitioning to constant voltage) and halogen lamp drive testing.

Best for the price

I have been looking for a power supply for awhile. The Rigol had the most options at the best price point. The user interface takes a little bit to get used too. The fan is a little loud. But the power supply output is very accurate and stable. I don't think I could justify spending more for the "A" version.

Solid Power Supply

Overview: Simply put, this power supply is a brick. The construction is stout and the exterior has an amazing attention to detail. Performance is spot on.

Pros:
-Two isolated supplies
-Intuitive configuration, I didn't have to consult the manual to get it working how I wanted
-Rigol packaging is first class, I have no doubt that the unit is well protected while shipping. Double outer box and custom formed foam supports on either end of the unit.
Cons:
-Since it doesn't have feet and the screen has somewhat poor side viewing capability, it can be hard to read the LCD when it is sitting on my bench and I am standing above it looking down at an angle of 45 degrees. I remedied this by placing a small piece of wood under the front to angle the front slightly.
-Does not come with any stock banana clips
-The power connector on the back comes out the left side when facing the front of the unit. This is opposite to my Rigol oscilloscope. I wish they could make up their mind.

Excellent Value

Having used nice power supplies in the labs of others before but only hacking together cheap junk for my own lab, I decided to try the DP832 for myself. Rigol has been impressing everyone for the last few years now with an amazing amount of professional quality for a hobbyist price.

This supply is no exception. It's responsive, the screen is clear, control is easy, and the voltages are more than plenty accurate. The USB data is fantastic for logging/monitoring purposes for app developers. I've found that it's quite easy even for novice coders to write custom data logging software for this scope.

I can't recommend the supply enough for anyone from hobbyists to professionals on a budget. After examining Rigol's entire line I felt this was the best value. I'm even more confident in this after using it for a few weeks.

Great quality power supply for the price

My cheap electronics superstore power supply blew up in the middle of a project. Ordered this from TE based on the reviews and my good experience with other Rigol gear we have in the lab. Was very easy to setup and use and was able to complete my project the same day. It is now my daily bench power supply and has worked perfectly. The display is easy to read, the color choice is a nice touch. I like that I can software upgrade it if I need those features later on. The rotary dial style buttons are a little odd, I would have preferred a regular keypad, but it's a a minor issue and I've got used to them. I couldn't find another power supply with the same quality and features anywhere near this price. Very happy.

Rigol PD 832

I JUST CHECKED ON THE DP832 POWER supply that i just purchased from TE and found that the one I got has the newer modified Hardware with the bigger heatsink.
you can check it by looking on the RHS holes, if you see silver color heat sink, then you got the new one.
the old heat sink was black and very small that caused the regulator to get hot and caused the PS to reset intermittently.
I wanted to upgrade to the bigger version with "A" at the end of the model name, i think it means accurate, but it costs double.
may be purchacing the Hi-Res option for $102 is a cheaper logical option.
so I'm so happy with my DP832 Power supply and it does serve its purpose very good.
and may be I'll add the DP1116A later in near future.

Solid value in a triple supply!

So far the performance and features of this supply have exceeded the price point. The output has been clean an stable so far with good options and adjustability. Build quality seems up to par as well. Would buy again!

DP832

I have just received this power supply and found that I had to order the power leads for it. I haven't had the opportunity to use it. The power supply is well made and well packaged with great documentation. The full manual is on CD. This unit is big and has some weight to it so it should hold up. I would give it 5 stars if it had the leads for it and it worked (haven't used it yet) as I think it will.

excellent all over

I really was impressed by the quality of the make, and my god, this thing is heavy...i mean real heavy.
the front panel controls are great, and the display is awesome.
10mv tolerance for this cheaper unit is ok for what i think i'm going to use it for.
the more expensive one DP832A costs nearly double and gives tolerance 1mv, and have color coded buttons.
and Tequipment really great service and fast delivery
i'm very pleased with every thing.
I also purchased Rigol scope and function generator from them.
thanx 4 reading my review.

Solid built with range of options and reliability

I've got a DP832 only for a few days to replace my old power supply. Not having heard about Rigol before, I was pretty skeptical about what to expect.

After a few days of usage, I've grown to like its easy to understand user interface and range of options/features I didn't know I need until now.

Also, the output is accurate and stable at what I specified.

Great PSU

I would buy it again.

Screen can be changed from amber,green,or white font.

I like the knob for adjusting, but the number pad around is just stupid. I'm knocking one star off because of that.

Easy to use general supply

In general I'm very happy with the operation of this supply. All features I've tested work as expected. Rating marked down due to cons.

Pros:
* I've found the somewhat odd but flexible value input control very useful for fine and coarse control.
* High accuracy option usually eliminates need to add external voltage and current meters; displayed values were within specs.
* Channel controls are easy to use. Ability to turn channels off and on is very useful.
* Over-voltage and over-current controls work well, and can prevent damaging circuits.
* Remembers last values entered between power cycling.

Cons:
* Entering feature option codes is unpleasant, difficult and slow. In some cases they won't work if microcode isn't correct but it isn't obvious that's the cause.
* Not all outputs are independent; grounds are shared between 2nd 30v and 5v.
* Takes several seconds from time power switch is turned on to when the supply is ready to use.

Excellent power supply at an excellent price

Very solid and well built power supply. Intuitive interface, low output noise, and fast boot times. My unit was recalled, but Rigol was very helpful in getting the modifications performed. Highly recommended, especially since new units have the improvement anyway.

Great PSU

This is a nice power supply for the price. Good resolution and programmable. The over current/voltage protection comes in handy.

I'd give it a 5 if it had knobs for each channel instead of having to hit the button then turn the knob to adjust.

DP832

I would highly recommend the Rigol DP832 Power Supply. When I ordered my DP832 in September 2013, TEquipment.net held off shipping the unit until a Rigol thermal design issue with initial production units was solved and implemented. My unit works extremely well and I am very well satisfied with it.

Good

Great value power supply. I agree with the previous reviewer that the numbers in the circle is terrible.

I had heard there was some overheating on a earlier (2013) and it sounds like they have that resolved and tequipment has the newest hardware.

Excellent Bench PSU

Excellent bench power supply for the money. High precision, intuitive controls, and easy to read display. The only issue I have with it is the inexplicable arrangement of the number keys in a circle. A normal, rectangular configuration would have taken about the same amount of space, and been infinitely easier to use.
