Three user-programmable keys enable seamless switching between instrument setups for quick access to frequently used configurations. The USB host port enables data logging directly to a USB flash drive.
In addition to CC/CV/CR/CW operating modes, the HVL Series provides continuous, pulse, and toggle transient operations to precisely switch between two load levels. Advanced list programming is highly configurable for generating complex load sequences. Operating software and battery test software are provided for remote PC control and programming. Built-in interfaces on the rear panel include USB (USBTMC-compliant), LAN, RS232, and GPIB.
The wide operating voltage range and high-power capabilities make it a comprehensive solution for electric vehicle (EV) batteries, on-board EV chargers, and charging station test applications.
