Programmable DC Electronic Loads with improved accuracy, resolution and transient mode

BKP 8500B14 June 2019 - B&K Precision announced their new 8500B series of programmable DC loads, improving upon all aspects of its popular 8500 Series. These new loads are a cost-effective alternative to B&K Precision's 8600 Series which come with a similar feature set. Equipped for a variety of benchtop and production line applications, the 8500B series is suitable for testing DC-DC converters, batteries, battery chargers, and photovoltaic arrays.

For system integrators, the 8500B series offers backward compatibility with the legacy 8500 series protocol as well as support of industry-standard SCPI commands.

Key Features

  • Constant Current (CC), Constant Voltage (CV), Constant Resistance (CR), Constant Power (CW) operation
  • List mode, transient operation, automatic test mode, battery test function, adjustable slew rate
  • Transient mode up to 10 kHz in CC mode
  • 16-bit voltage and current measurement system providing up to 0.1 mV / 0.1 mA of resolution
  • Full OVP/OCP/OPP/OTP including local and remote reverse voltage (LRV/RRV) protection
  • Built-battery test function
  • Flexible triggering options: front panel, external input, timer, or bus
  • Multi-type input terminals for banana jack or spade type connectors

These loads also include PC software for front panel emulation and generating test sequences and are compatible with B&K Precision's battery test software for discharge tests.

The 8500B series consists of four models each in a 2U (half-rack) form factor with a starting price of $910 and backed by a 3-year standard warranty.
