Programmable Electronic Loads Offer Cooling and Operating-Mode Options

September 01, 2021 by AMETEK Programmable Power

White Paper Overview

An electronic load—typically programmable and designed to draw various and specified amounts of power from a source—is the ideal instrument to characterize DC-output devices under test in the lab or on the production floor.

When selecting an electronic load, you will want to consider several options, including power, voltage, and current ratings; cooling method; operating modes; calibration techniques; transient response time; computer-control interfaces; and protective features.

In this white paper, explore how programmable electronic loads offer cooling and operating-mode options.
