150W, 120V / 30A programmable DC Electronic load

Model BK8600

3 Year Warranty

The 8600 Series programmable DC electronic loads provide the performance of modular system DC electronic loads in a compact benchtop form factor. With fast transient operation speeds up to 25 kHz, and high 16-bit measurement resolution and accuracy, these DC loads can be used for testing and evaluating a variety of DC sources such as DC power supplies, DC-DC converters, batteries, battery chargers, and photovoltaic arrays.

 The DC electronic loads can operate in constant current (CC), constant voltage (CV), constant resistance (CR), and constant power (CW) mode. The instrument provides flexible triggering capabilities, analog current control and monitoring, and standard USB (USBTMC-compliant), GPIB, or RS-232 serial interfaces for remote communication.

  • Voltage and current range: 0 to 120 V, 0 to 30 A
  • Max power: 150W
  • CC/CV/CR/CW operating modes
  • Transient mode up to 25 kHz
  • 16-bit resolution voltage and current measurement of 1 mV and 0.1 mA
  • List mode function
  • 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
  • Standard USB (USBTMC-compliant), RS-232, and GPIB interfaces with SCPI protocol support
  • OVP/OCP/OPP/OTP and local/remote reverse voltage (LRV/RRV) protection
