Therefore, it is advisable for users to measure the efficiency of a power supply themselves. In this blog article you will learn what you should pay attention to.

Multimeter, wattmeter, or power analyzer – which is the (measurement) tool of choice? 

There are several measuring instruments which are used for the determination of efficiency. Nevertheless, the measurement tolerances and the capabilities of measuring instruments in measuring various signals (AC or DC) varies considerably.

What Does Daisy Chaining Mean for Power Supplies?

PBUS-45-PULS-DaisyChaining-400.jpg

Daisy chaining refers to a wiring scheme in which several devices, such as power supplies, are connected directly in series. This type of wiring is also referred to as "looping through". The English term “Daisy Chaining” is used colloquially, since the structure is vaguely reminiscent of a daisy chain. The principle can be used both to achieve a higher total current and to transmit analog signals or digital data.

If the wiring of a power supply system is planned according to this principle, it is not wired in a star configuration. Instead, the current is looped through to the load in a linear or ring-shaped manner on one line.
