HP dc Electronic Loads
Hewlett-Packard dc electronic loads are ideal for the test and evaluation of dc power sources and power components . The HP dc electronic load family offers advantages in performance, quality, and reliability. These loads are well-suited for applications in areas such as R&D, production, and incoming inspection.
The Hewlett-Packard One-Box Solution
HP single-input loads and load mainframes are equipped with standard HP-1B interfaces . The built-in IEEE-488 interface allows complete control of all load functions as well as readback of input voltage, current, power, and detailed operating status . Each HP standalone load or load module also includes programming inputs that allow control of load current via an analog control voltage . Other system features contributing to the one-box solution concept are internal voltage and current monitors and an internal transient generator with programmable amplitudes, frequency, duty cycle and slew rate . The HP one-box solution saves space, cost, and time while making HP dc electronic loads easy to integrate into automated test systems.
Fully Compatible Operation
The features and SCPI (equivalent to TMSL) instruction set of all HP dc electronic loads are fully compatible with one another . For example, test programs developed for an HP 6060A 300-watt singleinput electronic load or an HP 60502A 300-watt single-input load module are interchangeable.
The HP dc electronic load family is also fully compatible with the HP 59510A relay accessory (see page 488) . HP dc electronic loads typically have a maximum input resistance of 10,000 ohms . The HP 59510A provides physical isolation of the HP dc electronic load from the device under test or any other test instrument by switching power and sense leads . Capable of switching up to 60 amperes and 200 volts dc, the HP 59510A can be controlled by rear panel signals on the HP electronic load .
