600W Programmable DC Electronic Load, 120V/120A, USB interface

Model BK8510B

3 Year Warranty

The 8500B Series programmable DC electronic loads improve upon all aspects of its predecessor while maintaining dependability at a value price. This series supports both SCPI and the backwards compatible legacy protocol and includes a TTL to USB interface adapter for easy system integration.

With a transient mode speed of up to 10 kHz and multi-type input terminals for banana plug or spade connectors, these DC loads are suitable for testing and evaluating DC power supplies, DC-DC converters, batteries, battery chargers, and photovoltaic arrays.

  • Maximum input power up to 600 W
  • CC/CV/CR/CW operating modes
  • Transient mode up to 10 kHz in CC mode
  • 16-bit voltage and current measurement system with up to 0.1 mV / 0.1 mA resolution
  • List mode and adjustable slew rate in CC mode
  • Short circuit test
  • Built-in battery test function with voltage level, capacity level, and timer stop conditions
  • CR-LED mode to simulate the loading behavior of typical LEDs
  • Remote voltage sensing to compensate for the effect of voltage drop in wires
  • Analog current control and monitoring
  • TTL (DB9) interface, includes TTL to USB adapter
  • OVP/OCP/OPP/OTP and local/remote reverse voltage (LRV/RRV) protection
