RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

August 30, 2021 - Vista, California - Axiom Test Equipment, an electronic test equipment rental and sales company has published a new blog post that informs people about the versatility of an electronic load. When an AC or DC supply must be evaluated, during design or even for maintenance, an electronic load provides much needed capabilities.

Electronic loads provide insights into how the power source behaves under different load conditions for AC or DC power sources. By keeping an electrical parameter such as voltage, current, power, or resistance fixed, it can measure voltage/current or power/resistance under constant-voltage (CV), constant-current (CC), constant-power (CP), and constant-resistance (CR) conditions.

Starting the search for an electronic load usually begins by understanding an application's requirements, for AC or DC testing. A suitable electronic load should be rated for at least the maximum current, voltage, and power of a UUT.

Learn more about which Electronic Load best fits your needs by reading the full blog post on Axiom's website.

An electronic load is a versatile and effective measurement tool. It receives electricity from a power source, such as a power supply or battery, and sinks current to ground. It provides insights into how the power source behaves under different load conditions for AC or DC power sources. By keeping an electrical parameter such as voltage, current, power, or resistance fixed, it can measure voltage/current or power/resistance under constant-voltage (CV), constant-current (CC), constant-power (CP), and constant-resistance (CR) conditions. Armed with microprocessors, modern electronic loads are "smart" and can quickly characterize a wide range of AC and DC power sources, often showing clear test results on their own display screens or on an external computer. When an AC or DC supply must be evaluated, during design or even for maintenance, an electronic load provides much needed capabilities.

Electronic loads are often equipped with self-protection functions to protect the user and the test equipment. Protection is typically provided against over-temperature, over-voltage, over-current, and over-power conditions. These features make it safer to use electronic loads, especially during high-power measurements, and can be found in many of the AC, DC, and combination AC/DC electronic loads available from Axiom Test Equipment (don't miss the earlier blog on electronic loads, "Learn More About Electronic Loads").

Electronic loads for AC testing are typically built for single-phase and three-phase AC power systems at standard grid voltages, such as 110 or 220 V AC, depending upon region, but may also be capable of measurements at other AC voltages depending upon the test equipment. Measurements are typically performed on units under test (UUTs) such as uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), DC/AC inverters, and AC power supplies. Electronic loads for DC measurements cover wider voltage ranges, testing such UUTs as DC power supplies and supporting circuits, batteries, and solar panels. Finding the best electronic load for an application is usually a matter of matching the load's limits and capabilities to the needs of the application.
