Rigol Technologies EU GmbH presents a new product line of programmable electronic loads in addition to its proven product families. The new models of the fast, easy-to-use and ultra-modern DL3000 laboratory instruments are an addition to the existing portfolio. With their excellent price/performance ratio, they are suited for applications in research and development, production and quality tests for automotive electronics, aviation and fuel cells, power monitoring of telecommunication modules and in many other fields of application.
All products of the DL3000 family have an RS232 and USB communication interface, and the UltraLoad software is available for easy operation via the PC. A large 4.3-inch color display allows you to display the corresponding waveform directly on the device without using an external oscilloscope. In order to test the transient characteristics of the test object, the frequency can be set to up to 30kHz in the dynamic-frequency mode. The current rise rate, i.e. the transition time from one setting to the other, is adjustable from 0.001 A/ to 5 A/ . The smallest readback resolution is 0.1mV and 0.1mA.
In order to protect the connected test objects, the device has an overload protection for voltage, current, temperature, power and reverse voltage. All four operating modes CC, CV, CR and CP are also supported. Directly on the device a battery test function, OCP tests, OPP tests and factory test functions are available.
Currently Rigol offers four models of this new product line: DL3012 200 W, 150 V / 40 A; DL3021A same as DL3012, additionally with LAN interface and digital IOs; DL3031 350W, 150V / 60A; and the DL3031A same as DL3031, additionally with LAN interface and digital IOs.
