What is an electrical load

Electronic DC loads - current sinks

An electronic load, also known as a current sink, serves as a substitute for an ohmic load resistance. The advantage of an electronic load is that the load current is electronically regulated and can be set within a defined range. A basic distinction is made between electronic loads for direct current and alternating current. The areas of application are very diverse and can be found e.g. for testing power converters, frequency converters, batteries, and solar and fuel cells. UPSs, transformers and electrical systems can also be tested with AC loads. In our delivery program you will find a wide range of electronic loads from the manufacturers GW Instek, Keithley and Rigol.
