    When I test with my multi meter the +v and -v are connected. Is this how it's supposed to be?

    These are ray wu power supplies

    If you are measuring Ohms from V+ to V- with the power supply off, your meter will be reading the discharged output capacitor and possibly a low value load resistor.

    What is the actual reading?
