Starting in 2017, SIGLENT has been using this format for serial numbers for instrumentation:
SPD1000X Over Current Protection (OCP) function added in Firmware Revision 184.108.40.206
March 16, 2022
Over Current Protection (OCP) has been added to the SIGLENT SPD1000X series of single-channel power supplies with the SPD version 220.127.116.11 The OCP function quickly disables the output when the current draw from the supply surpasses the set limit current. Update the firmware Set the OCP value by pressing and holding the FINE button on … Continued
Common Fuse Information
February 24, 2022
Fuses are a common circuit element and are key to protecting from overvoltage and overcurrent situations that can damage important circuits. Fuse markings are typically stamped symbols located on the metal cap of the fuse. Here is a helpful guide to common fuse markings used with instrumentation, taking a common fuse type as an example: … Continued

Protecting an SPD from an active load/battery
December 28, 2021
The output channels of SIGLENT SPD series power supplies have a protection diode with protection voltage and current rating of < 32V/1A. If the reverse voltage and current of the battery or power source connected to the SPD is > 32V/1A, you should add a protection diode between the power supply and load as below:
SPS5000X analog output control maximum frequency
September 14, 2021
The SPS5000X series of power supplies has an external analog output control that can set the output value based on an external signal. The maximum response frequency for this output control is approximately 16 Hz.
Do your instruments support UDP communications over LAN?
August 5, 2021
Not at this time. Many instruments support communication via sockets (port 5025) and telnet (port 5024) but the port numbers cannot be changed. If you use VISA, you can implement LAN via TCP/IP, which does not need a port number. Here is a listing of current SIGLENT instruments with Socket and Telnet Support.
How to check available internal memory?
July 29, 2021
Simply access the Save/Recall menu for the instrument in question and select Local. The menu will show used/total amounts. Here, the SDG6X has approximately 83 MB and the SDG1X has 85 MB of memory:
