Product Details

B&K Precision 5000 W Programmable DC Electronic Load, Model BK8524

The affordable, laboratory grade BK8524 programmable DC electronic load is suitable for testing and evaluating a wide variety of DC power sources. The 8524 can operate in CC, CV, CR or CP mode while voltage/current or resistance/power values are measured and displayed in real time. It is fully programmable via RS232 interface. Load terminals are isolated and floating. Extensive protection includes overtemperature, overvoltage, overcurrent, Over Power Protection (OPP) and reverse polarity. Flexible operating modes and excellent measurement accuracy make this DC electronic load an instrument of choice.

Constant current (CC), constant resistance (CR), constant voltage (CV) and constant power (CP) operation
Built-in high resolution (0.1 mA/1 mV) voltage and current measurement (range dependent)
Bright, easy to read display (VFD technology)
Built-in transient generator
Programmable via RS232 interface
List mode operation for increased throughput
Battery testing mode to provide Ah rating of battery
Flexible triggering - create trigger events by front panel keystroke, back panel TTL signal or software
Connect multiple units in parallel to increase current rating
Remote sensing
