5VP Series High Power DC Loads

HIGH POWER PROGRAMMABLE DC LOADS

The 5VP Series consists of high power load cabinet systems with support for 60V, 600V or 1000V input ranges.

All loads share a common and intuitive user interface. The 5VP Series are highly efficient integrated DC load systems that operate from a single user control panel or remote control interface.

There are 24 different 5VP Series models ranging from 5kW to 60kW. For higher power requirements, 5VP models can be paralleled easily.

For questions regarding the 5VP Series DC Loads, please contact us.

OVERVIEW

The Adaptive Power 5VP Series loads are intended for very high power DC test and product development applications in a wide range of industries. The 5VP Series models support voltages to 60V, 600V or 1000V and are well suited for testing large battery systems, high power AC/DC converters and energy storage systems found in Solar and Wind power applications. Their flexible V-I operating curves span range of voltage and current combinations at high power levels. All 5VP Series models have a low range mode for enhanced accuracy and resolution at lower voltage and current levels, further increasing their effectiveness.

The 5VP Series consists of a total of 24 different models providing a wide variation of possible voltage, current and power combinations.

APPLICATIONS

Load Versatility

All APS 5VP Series Loads are equipped with a powerful microcontroller and user friendly controls to provide capabilities that cover a wide range of load applications. Precision metering of Voltage, Current, Power and Resistance is standard.

Power Supply Testing

Elaborate testing of linear and switch mode AC/DC power supplies at high speeds is made possible by flexible ranging and wide V-I operating curves found in all 5VP Series APS loads. This supports high throughput production test and burn-in of small and large AC/DC power supplies.

Power Supply Design

With built-in features like over current protection (OPC) test and over power protection (OPP) test and dynamic constant current waveform testing, new power supply designs can be thoroughly evaluated against design specifications. An analog input mode allows arbitrary current waveforms to be applied to a unit under test as well.

Battery Charge/Discharge Testing

Time sequencing of specific discharge current levels as a function of battery voltage allows characterization and performance testing of various battery chemistries. The high current resolution and accuracy of the 5VP Series load supports testing of both small and large batteries.

Solar Panel Loading

The maximum power point tracking function of the 5VP DC loads simulate the behavior of a solar inverter allowing solar panel testing under a variety of conditions.
