Vektrex SpikeSafe™ DC Current Sources provide reliable precise constant current drive. Available in single and multiple source channel instruments, these tools are used worldwide in LED/laser diode reliability, burn-in, IESNA LM-80 test, and other current-driven applications. For applications requiring measurement, please refer to SpikeSafe Source Measure Unit.
SpikeSafe DC Current Source models supply constant current up to 60A and max compliance voltages to 400V. The high compliance voltage capability and SpikeSafe load protection allow many devices to be tested in one series circuit. This configuration is much more efficient than traditional single device circuits. The net result is lower annual operating cost and lower total cost of ownership.
All models feature individual channel control, precise current, and high power density — typically 6.4kW-8kW. Use of long cables to 12m is applicable for all SpikeSafe source instruments.
