Q:  Can I connect multiple 85XX loads in parallel and run in CV mode?

A:  Parallel connection of multiple 85XX loads to increase current rating can be used only in constant current (CC) or constant power (CW) modes only.  For other modes such as constant voltage (CV) or constant resistance (CR), parallel connection is not possible with the 85XX series DC loads as they will not be able to individually sink or balance out the draw from the connected DC source in the connection circuit.
