BK Precision 8512 600W Programmable DC Electronic Load


About this Machine

This Programmable DC Electronic Load can be used for testing and evaluating a variety of DC power sources. It’s wide operating ranges of up to 500 V and 240 A, flexible operating modes, and excellent measurement accuracy make the BK8512 well suited for characterizing DC Power supplies, DC-DC Converters, batteries, fuel cells, and solar cells.

The loads can operate in CC, CV, CR or CP mode while voltage/current or resistance/power values are measured and displayed in real time. Load terminals are isolated and floating. Over temperature, over power, over voltage, over current and reverse polarity protection will help protect your valuable prototype and circuits.
