Compact DC electronic loads from Keysight, minimise bench space
Bench DC electronic loads – instruments designed to test sources by presenting various resistances and measuring the response – in the Keysight EL30000 Series save precious bench space. The instruments offer a compact bench form factor with a built-in data logger to deliver insights for immediate, real-time decisions. The instruments minimises the need for additional instruments, with a system that measures voltage, current and calculates power.
Device manufacturers and design engineers use electronic loads to test power devices such as power supplies, batteries, battery modules, solar panels, fuel cells, LED drivers and power converters.
Keysight’s bench electronic loads enable customers to test a wide range of power sources, perform both static and dynamic tests to ensure devices can output constant energy, as well as handle a sudden increase or decrease in demand. Multiple ranges allow accurate measurements for small and large devices from zero to 150V. Using the built-in measurement system eliminates the need for an external digital multimeter, shunts and associated wiring, adds Keysight.
The Keysight EL30000 Series electronic load systems enable device manufacturers and design engineers to measure voltage and current accurately with a fully integrated voltmeter and ammeter that simultaneously measures the device under test (DUT) voltage and current. They can be used to capture measurements over time with the built-in data logger that continuously logs voltage, current and power to a data file. Other functions are to create, capture and display fast transients with a dynamic load profile and built-in scope mode which digitises the voltage and current, and shows the results, reducing measurement set up complexity.
It is also possible to simplify tests with standard operating modes, i.e. constant voltage (CV), constant current (CC), constant resistance (CR) and constant power (CP). The instruments can connect with USB, LAN (LXI Core) and optional general-purpose interface bus (GPIB) to easily measure, capture and display results.
Keysight’s EL30000 Series bench DC electronic loads, the EL34143A single-input, 150V, 60A, 350W and EL34243A dual-input, 150V, 60A, 600W are available now. The EL30000 Series is covered by a three-year warranty and built-in KeysightCare Technical Support.
