I'm using E3645A power supply as a source of DC current.

In my measurement assebly I have to switch the polarity of current source. I have two 2-position switches for this (for "low" and "high" power outputs). During switching there is a little moment when "High" and "Low" outputs are shorted.

Can I damage power supply by short circuit?

Can I reverse the polarity programmatically within the E3645A without a need of external switches?
