Adaptive Power Systems Introduces New Programmable LED Loads

New LED loads simulate wide range of LED types.

Irvine, CA, – Adaptive Power Systems Inc. (APS) is releasing four new electronic LED loads for LED lighting power supply development and test applications. These new LED loads replace prior generation versions with enhanced features and support for higher current and power levels.

All new 41D and 42D LED loads support 300W each and up to four loads can be installed in the 44M04 modular load chassis. The dual channel 42D5006 load module can simulate two LED strings for a total of eight strings per chassis. These LED loads are capable of handling voltages to 500Vdc to support high lumen output long LED string requirements. To support multiple parallel LED light string configurations, currents of 24A/channel can be supported as well.

These new LED loads have multiple voltage and current ranges for optional accuracy and resolution of both voltage and current over a wide operating range. LED parameters such as Vo, Vd, Rd and the number of series LEDs per strings can all be set programmatically to simulate a wide variety of LED substrate materials. Another unique feature of the Adaptive Power Systems LED loads is the pulse width modulation (PWM) control interface that allows LED dimming features to be controlled and tested by the load. Many newer LED drivers support dimming and these new loads are ideally suited to support development and test of such capabilities.

Using a common user interface with large, easy to read LED back-lit displays and digital encoder data entry, the APS loads offer intuitive front panel operation on the lab bench or on the production floor. For automated production test, several control interfaces like GPIB or LAN are offered.

According to Mike Knapp, sales manager for Adaptive Power Systems, Inc.: “These new LED loads are a great addition to our existing AC Source and DC Power supply product lines. With the addition of these four new models, we now offer the broadest selection of LED lighting loads for our customers.”
