Air cooled programmable dc electronic loads offered in a small footprint package
13 August 2010
Safety Power Group has introduced a range of air cooled programmable dc electronic loads in a smallfootprint package that saves valuable rack space in automatic test equipment (ATE) applications. The new PLA series features high power density and current rating along with a broad selection of high voltage. Offering current ratings from 800W up to 250kW, the PLA series can also be custom-tailored to meets users’ application requirements. Besides their compact footprint, PLA eLoads are 'zero' stackable to save even more rack space.
The PLA series offers voltage ratings from 60 to 1,000V. The current dissipation of these loads can be as high at 1,500A as standard but will reach much higher levels when units are connected in parallel. The units are available in 800W and 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5 and 7.5kW ratings, as standard, with higher wattage systems of 100kW and above available to special order.
The front panel design of the PLA series eLoads makes them easy to set up, use and understand. Buttons and knobs are organised in a manner that gets customers up and running in minutes and most commonly performed operations can be accomplished in a few keystrokes.
All PLA series air-cooled loads feature both RS-232 and GPIB IEEE-488 as standard with connectors for both located on the rear panel. Ethernet and USB interfaces are available as options that are field-installable by the end-user with minimal effort.
