Keithley 2306 Battery/charger Simulator Description:

The single-channel Model 2302 Battery Simulator and dual-channel Model 2306 Battery/Charger Simulator were designed specifically for development and test applications of portable, battery-operated products, such as cellular and cordless telephones, mobile radios, and pagers. These precision power supplies have ultrafast transient response so they can have output characteristics identical to actual batteries. These supplies employ a unique variable output resistance so the voltage output can emulate a batterys response (U.S. Patent No. 6,204,647). They provide stable voltage outputs, even when a device-under-test (DUT) makes the rapid transition from the standby (low current) state to the RF transmission (high current) state. In addition, they can monitor DUT power consumption by measuring both DC currents and pulse load currents. The Model 2302s and the Model 2306s battery-simulator channel can be programmed to operate like a discharged rechargeable battery, sinking current from a separate charger or from the Model 2306s charger-simulator channel.

The battery-output channels of the Models 2302 and 2306 are designed to simulate the output response of a battery. This capability, combined with their fast transient response, makes it possible to power the device during testing in exactly the same way as a battery will power the device during actual use. The output resistance of the Model 2302s and the Model 2306s battery channel can be programmed (with 10mO resolution) over the range from 0O to 1O so that the output resistance can be set to the same level as the output resistance of the battery that powers the device.

Portable wireless devices make great demands on their battery power sources. The battery must source load currents that can jump virtually instantaneously from a standby current level (100-300mA) to a full-power RF transmission current level (13A). In other words, the load current on the battery can increase rapidly by a factor of 7001000%. As a result, the battery voltage drops by an amount equal to the value of the current change multiplied by the batterys internal resistance. The Models 2302 and 2306 power supplies enable test systems to duplicate this voltage drop by programming their output resistance to be equivalent to that of the battery that will power the device. This allows wireless device manufacturers to test their products under the same power conditions that they will encounter in actual use.

We offer the refurbished used Keithley 2306 Battery/charger Simulator for sale and rental.

The Keithley 2306 is fully tested and refurbished in our in-house ISO9001 calibration laboratory. We supply manuals, accessories, full warranty and a free-of-charge Certificate of Conformity. We can also provide the Keithley 2306 with a fresh calibration for a small additional charge.

If you have under-utilised test equipment talk to us about trading-in or part-exchanging it towards the Keithley 2306 or other refurbished test equipment.
