A Digitizing DC Load with Built-In Measurements that Eliminates the Need for Seperate External Devices
NH Research, Inc. (NHR) has launched its new 4312 Series 120V Modular DC Load that expands the 4300 family of modular power supply testing instruments. The new multi-range DC load provides the precision loading as well as output measurements for characterizing USB (5V), LPS (20V), and virtually any external AC-DC power supply. The modular, front-loading 4300 chassis supports any combination of 4312 Series DC loads as well as the existing 4350 Series 500V DC loads and 4301 AC/DC Power Analyzers in a single 16-slot 8 ¾” (5U) chassis. All of the 4300 instruments use the same driver installation resulting in the most compact, fully integrated test and measurement system available today.
NHR’s 4300 chassis supports the 4312 Series of 120V DC Loads, the 4350 Series of 500V DC Loads, and the 4301 AC/DC Power Analyzer. Each instrument embeds a 1 mega-sample/second digitizer, multiple measurement ranges, and additional support features commonly found in comprehensive power supply test systems. In fact, NHR offers a comprehensive test system based on the 4300 family of instruments called the S600 Series. NHR’s S600 test system consists of a 4300 chassis, any combination of DC loads & power analyzers, a programmable AC/DC power supply, and a controller pre-loaded with NHR’s emPower® test sequencing software.
As a standalone instrument or as the core of a complete test system, the 4300 instruments provide the loading flexibility & the measurement options needed to optimize and accelerate power supply testing.
