INTEPRO Systems, a leader in power component and power system automated test equipment (ATE), announced the introduction of its latest line of 1800W modular electronic loads. The ML1800 Series features an 8-inch TFT LCD color display with multiple language selection that is visible across the room. The 6-slot chassis can be specified with up to six 300W or three 600W modules. Modules are available with current ratings of 60A or 120A with voltages up to 80V and 10A or 20A with voltages up to 500V.
The ML1800 modular load series offers constant current (CC), constant voltage (CV), constant resistance (CR), constant power (CP), short circuit, battery and LED operating modes; 20 kHz transient test speeds with programmable rise, dwell and fall times; inductive load and capacitive load simulation. These features make it an ideal solution for testing of today’s sophisticated power supplies, batteries, LEDs, adaptors and converters.
With 16-bit programming and measurement resolution, the ML1800 may be operated as a stand-alone instrument or integrated into a larger test system. It offers 10 user-programmable stored test sequences of up to 10 steps each. Programs can be run once, continuously looped or run once and then chained to other programs to provide very complex loading profiles.
A major advantage to users of the ML1800 load series is the ability to change test modes without turning off the load input. This allows the ML1800 series to more accurately simulate load-testing applications. Turn-on capacitance and inductance simulation is easily performed using the CC Rise and CV Rise modes. In addition, the load’s LED mode and battery simulation functions allow for quick setup and test execution. The CC to CV and CR to CV functions also provide the user with special load simulation features.
Stu Gibson, Sales Manager of INTEPRO Systems comments, “The ML1800 is one of the most cost effective electronic loads on the market. The modular design and clear, colorful display makes it easy to see the status of every load whether as a stand-alone instrument or in a test system.”
