Rack mount kit for select 2U models
The RK2US is for rack mounting select 2U models in either a side-by-side configuration or single unit configuration where a provided blank is used to fill the empty space. The shelf-like design offers added support and simplifies instrument mounting. The sides are shaped to optimize airflow for instruments with side cooling fans. Front end mounting hardware is included. See dimensions in the instruction manual.
High current premium test lead accessory
High quality red and black cable with externally braided wrap with large fork-type spade connectors for connecting to high current power supplies or DC loads.
- Length: 2 m
- Rated current: 60 A
- Gauge: 8 AWG
- Connector inner diameter: 8 mm (approximate)
- Connector outer width: 15 mm (approximate)
- Wire material: flexible silicon jacket
The 8500B Series programmable DC electronic loads improve upon all aspects of its predecessor while maintaining dependability at a value price. This series supports both SCPI and the backwards compatible legacy protocol.
With a transient mode speed of up to 10 kHz and multi-type input terminals for banana plug or spade connectors, these DC loads are suitable for testing and evaluating DC power supplies, DC-DC converters, batteries, battery chargers, and photovoltaic arrays.
