All APS 5VP Series Loads are equipped with a powerful micro controller 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. MASTER/SLAVE parallel configurations up to 480kW are available.
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.
