Intepro’s energy-recovering rack-mount DC load system features plug-in programmable modules



ELR 5000 modular programmable DC load

Intepro Systems announced the ELR 5000 modular, programmable DC load—the latest addition to the Intepro family of power system automatic test equipment (ATE). Housed in a 6U, 19” rack enclosure, the ELR 5000 can accommodate up to 10 completely self-contained, fully-programmable DC load modules with 320W nominal power, each. The modules can be used separately or in parallel, providing up to 3200 Watts. Up to 93% of the load power is returned to the source, offering exceptional energy savings in production test of DC power sources. 

The ELR 5000 Series offers three common regulation modes: constant voltage, constant current, and constant power. Modules are offered in two input voltage/current ranges: 0-80V/0-25A and 0-200V/0-10A. Each module is equipped with touch-panel controls and a built-in sequence generator. A USB port provides flash-drive access to upload and save test sequences. An Ethernet/LAN port enables remote control of all functions via SCPI language or Modbus protocol.

“Our new ELR5000 provides a unique combination of fully-programmable, modular loads in a compact rack-mount system with the added benefit of energy recovery,” said Gerard Sheehan, Intepro's Chief Technical Officer. “Recovering the load energy reduces energy costs. It also offers a cost-effective alternative to the expensive cooling systems used by conventional air- and water-cooled loads to dissipate energy as heat.”

Intepro Systems offers electronic loads as stand-alone units or as complete test systems. Maintenance contracts and onsite calibrations are also available for its test systems.

Price: Starting at $3,150 (chassis); $1,305 (load modules), each
