The 8500B Series programmable DC electronic loads improve upon all aspects of its predecessor while maintaining dependability at a value price. This series supports both SCPI and the backwards compatible legacy protocol.

With a transient mode speed of up to 10 kHz and multi-type input terminals for banana plug or spade connectors, these DC loads are suitable for testing and evaluating DC power supplies, DC-DC converters, batteries, battery chargers, and photovoltaic arrays.

Contained in a compact benchtop form factor, these loads operate in constant current (CC), constant voltage (CV), constant resistance (CR), or constant power (CW) mode. Internal memory allows for 100 sets of user configurable parameters such as voltage, current, slew rate and width for quick system recall.


8542B: 150W/ 150V/ 30A
8500B: 300W/ 150V/ 30A
8502B: 300W/ 500V/ 15A
8510B: 600W/ 120V/ 120A
