The affordable, laboratory grade BK8512 programmable DC electronic load is suitable for testing and evaluating a wide variety of DC power sources. It can operate in CC, CV, CR or CP mode while voltage/current or resistance/power values are measured and displayed in real time, and it is fully programmable via RS232 interface. Extensive protection includes overtemperature, over power, overvoltage, overcurrent and reverse polarity. Flexible operating modes and excellent measurement accuracy make this DC electronic load an instrument of choice for characterising DC power supplies, DC-DC converters, batteries, fuel cells and solar cells.
