Re:load 2 is a simple, robust, affordable constant current dummy load. It's useful for testing power supplies, high power LEDs, doing electroplating, or any number of other tasks that require a constant current load. It'll handle any voltage from 3.3 to 40 volts, sink up to 3 amps and dissipate up to 12 watts continuously at room temperature - or a lot more for short periods. It's powered by the device under test, so you can simply connect it up and go.
Re:load 2 is virtually indestructable. As long as you don't put more than 40 volts through it, you'll have a hard time destroying it. It'll handle overtemperature with aplomb, shutting itself down before it can do any damage. Reverse polarity doesn't phase it either.
Re:load 2 is supplied partially assembled. Included is a PCB with all the surface mount parts pre-populated, a potentiometer, binding posts, the power transistor, a heatsink, an M3 screw and nut, and some thermal paste.
