    I would like to find a good deal on a used power supply but I'm not sure
    what to look for. I will list the features I want it in two categories,
    Must have and nice to have.

    Must have:
    0-24 volt or more.
    2 amps or more.
    Ability to regulate via voltage or current.
    With a +/- .1 volt resolution and +/- 1 mA resolution.

    Nice to have:
    Two or more outputs.
    Can be controlled and monitored from a PC via serial or USB port.
    When regulated via current have a maximum voltage override.
    When regulated via voltage have a maximum current override.

    I think that is about it. Recommendations of specific brands and models
    that could be found used would be great.

  2. Look at the HP 66312 if you can accept 20.47V as the maximum. I got a
    few for $200 each.

    Go to a military or industrial surplus store, or ebay.
