Data Sheet Programmable DC Electronic Loads 8600 Series The 8600 Series programmable DC electronic loads provide the performance of modular system DC electronic loads in a compact benchtop form factor. With fast transient operation speeds and high 16-bit measurement resolution, these standalone DC loads can be used for testing and evaluating a variety of DC sources such as DC power supplies, DC-DC converters, batteries, battery chargers, and photovoltaic arrays. The DC loads can operate in constant current (CC), constant voltage (CV), constant resistance (CR), or constant power (CW) mode and be configured to provide a dynamically changing load to the DC source with fast load switching times. Versatile internal, external, and remote triggering options allow the dynamic load behavior to be synchronized with other events. Increase productivity by saving your test parameters into any one of the 100 memory areas for quick system recall. All load parameters such as voltage, current, slew rate, and width can be set via the front panel or programmed remotely. The 8600 Series provides standard USB (USBTMC-compliant), GPIB, or RS-232 serial interfaces for remote communication. CC/CV/CR/CW operating modes 16-bit voltage and current measurement system providing 1 mV / 0.1 mA resolution To ensure the reliability of your testing, the 8600 Series provides a power-on system self-test and numerous protection features: overtemperature (OTP), overvoltage (OVP), overcurrent (OCP), overpower (OPP), and local/remote reverse voltage (LRV/RRV) protection. Transient mode up to 25 kHz in CC mode List mode function Store and recall up to 100 setups Adjustable slew rate in CC mode Flexible triggering options via front panel, external input, timer, or bus Special Applications The 8600 Series provides a built-in battery test mode to measure the ampere-hour (Ah) characteristic of a battery and a unique CR-LED mode to simulate the loading behavior of a typical LED. Built-in battery test function with voltage level, capacity level, and timer stop conditions Test modes to validate the OCP/OPP protection functions of a power supply CR-LED mode to simulate the loading behavior of typical LEDs Analog current control and monitoring Remote sense and GPIB interfaces supporting SCPI commands for remote control Operating Voltage Rated Current OVP/OCP/OPP/OTP including local and remote reverse voltage (LRV/RRV) protection Compact 19” half-rack form factor allows for side-by-side rack mounting of two units (models 8600, 8601 and 8602) Technical data subject to change © B&K Precision Cor

Programmable DC Electronic Loads 8600 Series Flexible operation List mode Automatic test mode Slew Rate Transient operation enables the load to periodically switch between two load levels (A/B). A power supply’s regulation and transient characteristic can be evaluated by monitoring the supply’s output voltage under varying combinations of load levels, duty cycle, and slew rate. The 8600 Series can simulate these conditions in CC, CV, CW, and CR mode. Not limited to just switching between two levels, list mode lets you generate more complex sequences of input changes with several different levels....

(2) The slew rate specifications are not warranted, but are descriptions of typical performance. The actual transition time is defined as the time for the input to change from 10% to 90%, or vice versa, of the programmed current values.
