How Electronic Loads Work

Posted by Bill Martin on Aug 22, 2017 11:18:11 AM

Electronic loads are used in a variety of tests, including power supply tests and battery tests. You can program them to provide exactly the kind of load that you need for the device you are testing.

Electronic Load Selection: Volts, Amps, and Model Numbers

Posted by Bill Martin on May 15, 2017 12:43:05 PM

Often the selection of programmable power supplies is based upon how high a voltage it can produce or how much current it can source. When selecting an electronic load, however, you need to consider not only volts and amps, but power as well. For example, the SLH-500-6-1800 has a maximum input voltage of 500 VDC and a maximum input current of 6 Arms, but that doesn't mean that it can accommodate these voltages and currents under all conditions.

What are the 4 Types of Electronic Load Modes?

Posted by Bill Martin on Nov 11, 2016 10:29:05 AM

Electronic loads, such as the Sorensen SL Series of DC Electronic Loads, are instruments that you would use to provide a programmable load when testing voltage and current sources, including power supplies and batteries. Modern electronic loads are actually sophisticated electronic test instruments that can offer a number of different modes, including Constant Current (CC) mode, Constant Resistance (CR) mode, Constant Voltage (CV) mode, and Constant Power (CP) mode.

Generate Fast Transient Tests with an Electronic Load

Posted by Bill Martin on Jun 23, 2016 11:30:44 AM

To ensure that automotive electronics can withstand the voltage transients induced on the power bus, companies use expensive arbitrary waveform generation and coupling networks during the design phase. For production test, however, a simpler and less expensive means for simulating bus voltage variations and transients is required. For many transient tests, all you need is a switching power supply and an electronic load.

Simulate high-brightness LEDs when testing drivers

Posted by Bill Martin on May 4, 2015 10:12:51 AM

One of the challenges facing designers of lighting fixtures or luminaires that use high-brightness LEDs (HBLEDs) is testing the low-voltage, constant-current power supplies, called drivers, used to power the LEDs. Making this choice is difficult because the number of LEDS and the configuration of the LEDs will vary from design to design.
