6035A 500V/2A CC mode load regulation

Hello all.

May I enquire what Agilent calibration centres use as a short circuit switch for Load Regulation/Load Effect on their 6035A 500V/2A 1000W power supplies during CC mode testing.

Do you use an electronic switch or a heavy duty mechanical switch (to create a short circuit) to go from 500V @ 2A full load to no load scenario?

I have no difficulties sinking the 1000W of power, but I would like to know what you can use as a short circuit switch.
