Issue Details

I'm considering purchasing a PXI-4113 or other Programmable Power Supply. I noticed that the device has a port for auxiliary power on the front panel. Does this device require external power? Do I have to purchase a power supply myself?

Solution

The PXI-4113 and some other programmable power supplies do require auxiliary power sources. However, the power source for the 4113 comes with the device and plugs directly into a wall outlet. This is because the device is capable of up to 6A and 10V, and this would be too much power for a single slot of a chassis to source without external power.
