I have a home made ESR meter, need to run tests on it to verify it's range and accuracy. I also have an LCR meter.

There are 2 power supplies for this unit. The first one has 4 output voltages (don't recall them yet). The second power supply is smaller and has 2 output voltages, 1 is a weird voltage.
-8V @3Amp and +2V @500mA.
What can you do with 2V at 500mA?
Anyway, thanks for your input. It will be a couple of weeks before I get this on my bench.
