The DC Electronic Load Reinvented

In 1989, the Keysight 6060A DC electronic load entered the marketplace as the first modern electronic load. It integrated a "remote interface, isolated digital to analog (D/A) programmers, a pulse generator, a digital voltmeter (DVM), and current-monitor shunt into a single package."

Today, we introduce the Keysight EL30000 Series bench electronic load with a built-in data logger to give you real-time insights into your device's performance under test (DUT). At the heart of the EL30000 Series bench electronic load is a highly accurate measurement system that offers real-time updates to the large display.

A built-in scope mode enables the viewing of transient events. Four different operating modes simplify testing various kinds of devices; constant current (CC), constant voltage (CV), constant resistance (CR), and constant power (CP).

The EL30000 Series bench electronic load includes a single and dual-channel model. Start your test with confidence and finish with results you trust.

  • EL34143A bench electronic load with single-input; 150 V, 60 A, 350 W
  • EL34243A bench electronic load with dual-inputs;  150 V, 60 A, 600 W

For higher current and more power, combine the EL34243A's bench electronic load with dual-inputs into a single channel — measure up to 120 A or 600 W. Save and transfer results with a USB flash drive, LAN, or optional GPIB interface.

When a vintage 6060A comes up for sale, they rarely have the front binding post, an $80 upgrade in 1989. While our new electronic load provides more features, better accuracy, device protection, it also includes both front and rear binding posts standard.
