The 8500B programmable DC electronic load supports constant current, constant voltage, constant resistance, and constant power operation, with list mode, transient operation, automatic test mode, battery test function and an adjustable slew rate.
Transient mode in CC mode is up to 10kHz, and the 16bit voltage and current measurement system provides up to 0.1mV / 0.1mA of resolution with flexible triggering options including from the front panel, an external input, a timer, or a bus.
The DC load also includes PC software for front panel emulation and generating test sequences and is compatible with B&K Precision’s battery test software for discharge tests. The 8500B series consists of four models each in a 2U (half-rack) form factor and is backward compatible with the legacy 8500 series protocol as well as offering support for industry-standard SCPI commands.
