Rigol DL3000 Programmable DL Loads: Intro Videos

High performance, advanced programmability, and affordability make these test instruments ideal for stress-testing products and components

The DL3000 Series 200W/350W Programmable DC Electronic Loads are economical single output 150V 40A/60A units.  With a user-friendly interface and excellent performance specifications, the DL3000 series is useful for simulating a variety of load conditions for both equipment and components.  A 4.3” color TFT LCD clearly shows multiple instrument parameters and conditions simultaneously.  RS232, USB, and LAN interfaces come as standard for the remote control of these electronic loads, with GPIB available as an option.

The DL3000 Series of Programmable DC Electronic Loads can be used in various industries, such as automotive electronics, aerospace, and fuel cells. Applications include testing the performance of DC power supplies under varying conditions for voltage regulation or constant current variation.  This applies to linear or switch-mode power supplies (SMPS), modular power supplies, or power adapters, etc.  Battery manufacturers can use the DL3000 series to test various battery and cell constructions under varying loads.  Chargers for batteries and cell phones can be evaluated with these electronic loads, as can components such as MOSFETs, IGBTs, capacitors, and ballast resistors.  These loads are also ideal for educational experiments.

Here are a set of five helpful videos which explain more about these loads:
