A. Please refrain from parallel operation with different power supplies. Doing so will create an unbalanced load current, exceed the rated current, and result in failure.
When engaging in parallel operation, use the same power supplies which supports parallel operation.

To determine the feasibility of parallel operation, please check the Parallel Operation section in the specifications on the technical data page of each product on the product information website (TDK Product Center). Use is possible if there is a description such as "Possible." However, use is not possible if a "-" is listed or if no item is listed.
