Measurement Rentals introduces the Agilent N3300A load bank to its test and measurement equipment range.
The Agilent N3300A 1800W precision DC electronic load mainframe is designed to test battery banks, solar PV cells, DC-DC converters and DC power supplies.
One Agilent N3306A 600W load module is included with the N3300A mainframe. Additional N3306A 600W load modules are also available for hire providing 1200W or 1800W of total DC load capacity.
N3306A load module specifications (per module):
- Current: 0 - 120A
- Voltage: 0 - 60V
- Maximum power: 600W
The modules can operate in modes such as constant current mode, constant voltage mode and constant resistance mode.
The modules also have built-in transient generator, current measurement, voltage measurement and power measurement (instantaneous).
Up to three load modules can be connected to three independent DC supplies, or connected in parallel to a single supply providing up to 360A of DC load at up to 60V (total 1800W).
The Agilent N3300A load bank is ideal for load testing of 12V, 24V and 48V battery banks, solar panels and power supplies.
Key applications include:
- Battery Load and Discharge Testing
- I-V Curve Characterisation of High Power Solar Cells and Modules
- Fuel Cell AC Impedance Measurements
- Solar Cell and Module Testing
- DC Input Battery Adapter Testing
Testing multiple output DC power supplies and DC-DC converters can be very time-consuming if each output must be tested sequentially. Using the built-in measurement capabilities of the N3300A electronic load mainframe, all outputs can be measured simultaneously. Alternatively, multiple single output power sources can be tested simultaneously.
