The APS 6RL Series provide near total energy recovery of power absorbed by the load during test. This saves on both utility bills for electrical power as well as cooling HVAC costs. It also allows testing of units using a much smaller grid service than would be required when using conventional resistive or electronic loads. These cost savings quickly add up to pay for the cost of the 6RL loads in no time flat.
All APS 6RL Series Loads are equipped with a powerful DSP and large touch sensitive color TFT display. Simple to operate, these DC loads 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 and burn-in of linear and switch mode AC/DC power supplies is made possible by flexible ranging and wide V-I operating curves found in all 6RL Series DC 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 built-in programmable function generator allows user defined current profiles 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 6RL Series loads combined with their energy recovery capabilites supports testing of large EV mobility batteries. MASTER/SLAVE parallel configurations up to 480kW are available.
Solar Panel Loading
The maximum power point tracking function of the 6RL DC loads simulate the behavior of a solar inverter allowing solar panel testing under a variety of conditions.
