Active Load Unit

Supply Template

David L. Huffman

To make the Load Unit universal several resistor connections must be made available. Since these connection points require a 20Amp continuous ratings it was decided to use PowerPole type connectors at each device. Each supply under test will have a template or pattern connection made to the unit according to its current and voltage outputs. A wiring harness that parallels the correct number of devices will be needed when the current exceeds 20Amps.

Here is a list of the supplies and their load requirements.

On the sheet there is a Device number and connector color. The color corresponds to the voltage range that can use the full 20Amps of programming. The table blow shows the limits.
