Available as a plug in load module the ELPA-3250 series has 3 models with a choice of voltage and current ranges. These AC Loads operate in constant current and constant resistance modes and can also be used to sink DC Sources.
A front panel memory with an auto sequencing function is also provided. This is ideal to quickly implement common test procedures when the load's are used on the benchtop.
- One Unit to Sink AC or DC sources
- CC, CR and Crest Factor Mode
- Adjustable Power Factor
- GO/NG Limit Check
- Remote Sense
Dual 4½ digit displays clearly show the voltage and current values at the load terminals. Remote sense is provided to counter any voltage drop in the load lines. For batch testing upper and lower limits can be adjusted to signal pass or fail.
An external analogue input enables the ELPA-3250 to load according to an external signal. This allows complex waveforms to be set up on a function generator.
An isolated current monitor is provided on the front panel. This is configured as a BNC socket making it ideal for viewing the actual load current on an oscilloscope.
The user can recall sine, square or DC waves from a bank of 55 common waveforms from the unit's front panel memory. The bank contains crest factor modes enabling high current peaks to be simulated. The power factor can also be adjusted in steps between 0.3 lagging and 0.3 leading.
Interfaces and Control
Waveforms can be recalled or enabled from the front panel or via the RS-232 interface or the optional GPIB interface.
Form Factor and Enclosures
Each ELPA-3250 module must be housed within a mainframe to operate. The modules can be housed within the 3302C single slot mainframe (option /3302C). Alternatively the rack mounting 3300C mainframe can accommodate up to 4 modules (option /3300C). This approach allows load modules from other ranges to be operated or mixed in the same mainframe.
Please see the separate mainframes datasheet.
