Programmable electronic loads with new connectivity option

June 22, 2017 // By Julien Happich
Rigol Technologies EU GmbH has announced a new product line of programmable electronic loads in addition to its proven DL3000 laboratory instruments.

All products of the DL3000 family have an RS232 and USB communication interface, and the UltraLoad software is available for easy operation via the PC. A large 4.3-inch colour display allows users to display the corresponding waveform directly on the device without using an external oscilloscope. In order to test the transient characteristics of the test object, the frequency can be set to up to 30 kHz in the dynamic-frequency mode. The current rise rate, i.e. the transition time from one setting to the other, is adjustable from 0.001 A/μs to 5 A/μs. The smallest readback resolution is 0.1 mV and 0.1 mA.

In order to protect the connected test objects, the devices have an overload protection for voltage, current, temperature, power and reverse voltage. All four operating modes CC, CV, CR and CP are also supported. Directly on the device a battery test function, OCP tests, OPP tests and factory test functions are available.
