LinkedIn +

Being showcased at booth 9042 is Adaptive Power Systems range of powerful and fully programmable electronic DC loads. With power levels ranging to 60kW per unit, the available power and voltage ranges typically cover large battery packs used for EV and HEV automotive applications.

These fully featured loads target the development and testing of battery solutions for advanced electric drivetrains. The new 5VP Series of loads incorporate many of the test capabilities found in modern electronic loads and expand on this by offering a suite of built-in battery discharge functions. These discharge functions can be customized by the development engineer as required, and executed without the need for computer programming. Data on battery performance can be collected during these test discharge protocols. If needed, Adaptive Power Systems DC power supplies can be added to a test setup to include battery charging as well.

Sporting a logical front panel layout with large, easy-to-read displays and full numeric keypad for entry, the Adaptive Power Systems 5VP Series loads offer intuitive front panel operation for lab environments or production floor requirements. For automated production test system applications, control interfaces like USB or LAN are supported.
