BATTERY LOAD UNITS – BLU SERIES

 

The Battery Load Units – BLU series of devices are stand-alone or a PC-controlled battery capacity test instruments, based on the state-of-the-art technology. Their design is deploying the most advanced power electronics solutions with coolers and fans integrated into the device.

The BLU series devices are lightweight and developed to meet a customer’s wide ranging test procedure requirements (standardized as well as customized). Using a BLU device, the capacity test is performed in an accurate, user-friendly way in accordance with the battery testing standards (IEEE 450-2010 / 1188-2005 / 1106-2005, IEC 60896-11/22 and other relevant standards).

The capacity test/discharge can be performed at constant current, constant power, constant resistance or in accordance with a pre-selected load profile. The discharge test can be conducted even in a case a battery remains connected to the load – by measuring the load current during the process.
