Gel rig power sources

The power sources used to run agarose gels are not reaching the input voltage. The power source closest to the fume hood isn't reaching above 60V, and the same issues are reported with the source by the computer. I tried using different combinations of rigs/lids/power source and have not been able to get them to run correctly.

Problem :{

it could be possible that one or more rigs is broken, because a student from another stream was able to use it at the correct voltage.

It could be that the amps is set too high and the total power is constant so the voltage is reduced. The and should be around 450mA if I remember correctly. Check that. Voltage limits are likely not due to the rig, cords or lid connectors. Stupid power supply.
