Kikusui PLZ-5W Series High Performance DC Electronic Loads

Input Voltage: 0.25-150V | Input Current: 0-2160A | Power: 200W, 400W, 1200W, 10800W

  • In ARB mode arbitrary I-V characteristics can be set by entering multiple I-V points (voltage and current value set points).
  • The Wavy for PLZ-5W (SD023-PLZ-5W) is an application software that supports sequence creation and the operation of the Kikusui power supplies and the electronic load.
  • High visibility colour display. The voltage, current, power, current capacity (Ah) and power capacity (Wh) values are conveniently displayed.
  • High speed voltage tracking characteristic in CR mode is perfect for applications such as startup tests for power supplies.
  • Achieving a rise time of 4 μs to reach the rated current of the electronic load. Power supply evaluation demands a fast transient response which the PLZ-5W series achieves with ease.
  • LAN (LXI) / USB / RS232C as standard interface.
  • “if the input voltage is 1V or less, the current is reduced by 10% per 0.1V”

The PLZ-5W Series high performance electronic load is the successor to the highly respected PLZ-4W series, whilst still retaining the same high specification and build quality. Advances include a high visibility colour display, low voltage operation from a minimum of 1 V to a maximum of 150 V. Programmable profiles of voltage/current can be applied (using the new ARB function, as used in LED/solar testing) in addition to the inherited 6 modes of operation: Constant Current, Constant Resistance, Constant Voltage, Constant Power, Constant Current + Constant Voltage, Constant Resistance + Constant Voltage.

Equipped with a high-speed response feature boasting a maximum slew rate of 60 A/μs (PLZ1205W) and a minimum setting resolution of 10 μA (PLZ205W). Additional features of the PLZ-5W series include: Soft-start function, variable slew rate, selectable response (CV/CR mode), switching function, ABC preset memory, 20 user-defined set-up configurations, and a sequence operation function. The advanced high-speed response makes the PLZ-5W ideal for the development and testing of today’s modern power supplies that require variable high-speed current changes. This advantage extends to the testing of current clamps/transducers.
The PLZ-5W Series is available in 4 standard models which can be incrementally extended by adding additional booster units (PLZ2405W) to achieve a maximum of 10.8 kW / 2160 A DC electronic load.
The following communication interfaces are installed as standard: LAN (LXI compliant), USB, RS232C and analogue control. An optional GPIB interface is available.
