Key Features and Functions
The Chroma 63800 Electronic Loads can simulate a variety of load conditions under high crest factor and varying power factors with real time compensation even when the voltage waveform is distorted. This unique feature provides real world simulation capabilities and prevents overstressing the instrument resulting in reliable and unbiased test results.
The 63800’s state of the art design uses DSP technology to simulate non-linear rectified loads with its unique RLC operation mode. This mode improves stability by detecting the impedance of the UUT and dynamically adjusting the load’s control bandwidth to ensure system stability.
Available comprehensive measurements allow users to monitor the output performance of the UUT. Additionally, voltage & current signals can be routed to an oscilloscope through built in analog outputs. The instrument’s standard GPIB/RS232 interface provides remote control & monitoring for system integration. Built-in digital outputs may also be used to control external relays for short circuit (crowbar) testing.
Chroma’s 63800 Loads feature fan speed control ensuring low acoustic noise. The diagnosis/protection functions include self diagnosis routines and protection against overpower, over-current, over-voltage and overtemperature scenarios.
