TMCNet:  SBS-8400 Battery Capacity Tester with Monitoring

[December 28, 2012]

SBS-8400 Battery Capacity Tester with Monitoring

Menomonee Falls, WI, Dec 28, 2012 ( via COMTEX) -- The SBS-8400 was designed as an improved version of the popular Torkel 840(TM) load tester. The SBS-8400 has similar discharging capabilities as the Megger Torkel 840(TM), however it has the advantage of having a user-friendly touch screen menu and a built-in data monitoring/acquisition system complete with wireless modules and software.

The wireless modules are easy to hook up and eliminate hundreds of feet of signal wire to untangle before every use. Each module can record the real-time voltage of up to four individual cells or multi-cell blocks. During the test the user can view real-time data on the unit's large 5.7" color screen or through a laptop.

The SBS-8400 is also unique in that it has adjustable automatic stop points. In addition, if you want to change the settings during a discharge test (current, stop time, stop voltage, etc.) you can do so without stopping the test. The unit can be easily set to automatically stop the test if a single cell or the entire string falls below a user set voltage. A test can be done safely without the technician being on site and without the danger of over-discharging an individual cell or the entire system. The unit comes complete with software which allows the download of test results via USB flash drive and exports complete reports including individual cell voltages, graphs, etc.

Features: Wide voltage and current range: 10-300Vdc / 0-120Amps Can be paralleled with other load bank to increase draw up to 600Amps (optional 600Amp DC clamp required for monitoring) 5.7 in. LCD touch screen for easy operation View test data in real time on screen or with laptop through RS232 Selectable discharge mode: constant current/power/resistance 4 adjustable stop points and multiple alarm designs to control the discharge process intelligently Download data after discharge to USB drive PC software for capacity evaluation and report generation Optional wireless modules for Ni-Cad cells Applications Utility / Switchgear Telecommunications UPS Systems Test Departments Automated Guided Vehicles Material Handling Batteries *Meggar is a registered trademark and Torkel 840 is a trademark of Megger Group Limited or its subsidiaries.
