MSRP $2,125 / 1 Yr Warranty
Where to Buy

The affordable, laboratory grade model 8510 Programmable DC Electronic Load is well suited for testing and evaluating a wide variety of DC power sources. This DC electronic load can operate in CC, CV, CR or CP mode while voltage/current or resistance/power values are measured and displayed in real time and is fully programmable via RS232 or USB interface. Over temperature, over power, over voltage, over current and reverse polarity protection will help protect your valuable prototype and circuits. Its flexible operating modes and excellent measurement accuracy make this DC electronic load a great choice for characterizing DC Power supplies, DC-DC Converters, batteries, fuel cells and solar cells.
