Features and Benefits

Testing portable, battery-operated devices under real-word conditions demands a DC power supply that can simulate a battery’s performance over a wide range of conditions. Series 2300 battery simulating power supplies can simulate both a battery’s output resistance and output voltage response. The dual-channel versions of these power supplies provide one channel to act like a battery and sink current for simulating a discharged rechargeable battery; the other channel supplies voltage for testing a device’s charge control circuitry.


  • Ultra-fast response to transient load currents
  • Variable output resistance 
  • Pulse peak, average, and baseline load current measurements
  • 100nA DC current sensitivity
  • Current step measure function
  • Sink up to 3A
  • Open sense lead detection
  • Built-in digital voltmeter


  • Provides output characteristics identical to actual batteries.
  • Allows simulating a battery’s internal resistance.
  • Supports measuring load currents for power consumption verification or analysis.
  • Provides the sensitivity needed to monitor the low sleep mode currents of battery-operated products.
  • Supports measuring the load current at each level of a device’s operational states.
  • Acts just like an electronic load, which allows these supplies to simulate a discharged rechargeable battery for use in testing the performance of battery chargers or battery charger control circuitry.
  • Indicates if there is a broken remote sense lead or an open connection from a remote sense lead to the test fixture.
  • Allows measuring signals from –5V to +30V DC anywhere in the test system with the same rated accuracy as the supply’s voltage readback.
