load testSchaefer Inc. (Hopkinton, MA) unveiled the Second Generation of the LW 5100 Series of liquid cooled electronic loads featuring user friendly touch screen panel and enhanced functionality. These built-to-project loads are housed in a compact case that provides high power density and ease of use. Their versatility and customization makes them suitable for linear and nonlinear load test applications appropriate for laboratory or test room production. The LW 5100 Gen. 2 Series provides four different operating modes: constant voltage, constant current, constant resistance and constant power. CV, CC, CR and CP adjustments can be made through a programmable front touch screen keypad (soft key), rotary encoder, external remote unit and CAN bus interface. Additional features include:

  • Wide operating range up to 400 V/750 A with one module.
  • Dynamic paralleling of up to four or more modules for higher load capacity up to +40 kW, controllable through one interface.
  • Full protection against thermal overheating and programmable switch off limits to avoid total discharge of the battery.
  • Reduced water consumption depending on load power and water inlet temperature.
