The modules can be used separately or in parallel, providing up to 3.2 kW. Up to 93% of the load power is returned to the source, offering energy savings in production test 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: 0-80V/0-25A and 0-200V/0-10A. 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.
The company says the system provides a combination of fully-programmable, modular loads in a compact rack-mount system with the added benefit of energy recovery, a cost-effective alternative to the expensive cooling systems used by conventional air- and water-cooled loads to dissipate energy as heat.
