Interpro Systems has introduced the ELR 5000 modular, programmable DC load. Housed in a 6U, 19-inch rack enclosure, the ELR 5000 can accommodate up to 10 completely self-contained, fully programmable DC load modules with 320 W nominal power each. The modules can be used separately or in parallel, providing up to 3,200 W. Up to 93% of the load power is returned to the source, offering exceptional energy savings in production tests of DC power sources.
The ELR 5000 Series offers three common regulation modes: constant voltage, constant current and constant power. Modules are offered in two input voltage/current ranges: 0 to 80 V/0 to 25 A and 0 to 200 V/0 to 10 A. Each module is equipped with touch-panel controls and a built-in sequence generator. A USB port provides flash-drive access to upload and save test sequences. An Ethernet/LAN port enables remote control of all functions via SCPI language or Modbus protocol.
Interpro Systems offers electronic loads as stand-alone units or as complete test systems. Maintenance contracts and onsite calibrations are also available for its test systems.
List price starts at $3,150 (chassis); load modules are $1,305 each. Availability is 8-12 weeks.
