Q. Why is SG※ not connected to RS232c connector on NSP side?
A． SG※ is not connected to RS232C of NSP. This is because if SG is connected
to COM of output of power supply, it makes a loop of current as COM and SG
is the same OV (zero volt).
If large current flows in COM line, the
current also flows to pin 5 of D-Sub resulting in possible damage to the pin
when COM and SG are connected each other. This is why they are not connected
to prevent the possible damage.
