Amrel: Zero Volt Programmable Loads
Zero-volt eLoad.
San Antonio, TX — Amrel/American Reliance is introducing what it calls the industry's widest selection of Zero Volt Programmable Electronic Loads (ZVL eLoad Series). The ZVL eLoad Series is now available in 60W/100W/150W/200W/300W power ratings, 10VDC/150VDC models and 20A/40ADC/60ADC/80ADC/100ADC/200ADC current ratings. The ZVL is reportedly the only 0-volt load offering a complete standard series, with the capability for customization of power/voltage/current ratings.

The product is designed specifically to address requirements for single cell fuel cell testing, battery testing, power electronics, photovoltaic testing, and other 0-volt load applications, and spanning across the production, R&D/Lab, VAR, and educational institution sectors.

The ZVL's 0 to 10VDC analog programming, external 0 to 10VDC Imon (current monitor) and Vmon (voltage monitor) signals, and remote sensing, along with 20 to 200ADC loading at 0VDC can be easily interfaced with the company's new FRA (Frequency Response Analyzer) to provide an effective, low-cost total solution package for impedance measurement testing of single-cell fuel cells/batteries. The ZVL offers CV/CC/CR/CP/Pulse operating modes, 2 Full-scale ranges, standard Co-resident GPIB IEEE-488.2/SCPI and RS-232 interface connectivity, and OV/UV/OC/UC/OP/UP programmable protection. Automated testing and remote programming is achieved via standard LabVIEW and LabWindow drivers.

To avoid costly calibration expenses and possible downtime, the ZVL is easily calibrated in a matter of minutes through closed-case calibration, realizing its ROI in a matter of months. Users can jumpstart test applications using the company's latest release of the eLoad Virtual Panel, and begin testing application immediately.
