FAST-PLU10

Programmable Load Unit, 10 channels
Use Cases
  • High side switching mode (28V/OPN switch in UUT) and low side switching mode (GND/OPN switch in
    UUT) – the mode can be changed at runtime
  • Fully floating load (for 2-pin operation of UUT, between 28 V/OPN output
    and GND/OPN output)
  • SIM/OE can be switched at runtime
 Benefits
  • Up to ten programmable loads in one unit
  • 19″ 3 U housing
  • Virtually infinite expandability
Key Features
  • 10 independent channels in one 3 HE 19’’ device
  • Analog load with control, DC isolated
  • Current range from 50 mA to 3000 mA (up to 6 A for 350 ms)
  • Voltage range from 10 V to 35 V
  • Current measurement (±0.1% F.S.)
  • Current measurement in OE path (± 0.1% F.S.)
  • Open circuit relay
  • In HS mode and LS mode, a 1- or 2-pin OE can be used; in fully floating
    load mode, only a 2-pin OE is usable
  • Manual breakout (per channel)
  • Control board (1 unit for 10 PLU channels/modules)
  • Standard FAST protocol (Ethernet), LXI™ optional
  • Standardized connectors
