All APS 5 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 5 Series APS loads. This supports high throughput production test and burn-in of 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 chemistry. The high current resolution and accuracy of the 5 Series load supports testing of both small and large batteries.
LED Driver Testing
The 5D Series LED loads are designed for development and testing of LED power supplies, drivers and light fixtures. These load can simulate high brightness LED characteristics for series and parallel string configurations. This significantly speeds up development and test by eliminating the need to keep multiple actual LED types on hand.
