BLU-C is the latest solution from DV Power for conducting a comprehensive battery capacity test. This universal instrument is applicable to any battery string, such as lead-acid, Li-Ion, Ni-Cd, and others, with voltages up to 800 V DC. Additionally, when combined with Zero Voltage Discharge Module ZVD80, BLU-C enables full battery discharge down to 0 V with up to 60 A, required before battery recycling.
An overview of the maximum test currents for BLU-C models for various battery voltage ranges can be found in the table below.
BLU-C tester simplifies battery testing in multiple ways. The instrument provides monitoring of discharge parameters (graphically and numerically) in real-time on a 7-inch touch screen display. The instrument also enables the measurement and monitoring of cell parameters (voltage/intercell voltage/temperature), which makes it a complete stand-alone discharge test system.
The capacity tester is compatible with DV-B Win software. Because of that, the user can view detailed numerical and graphical presentations of key parameters, and create reports in various formats.
The capacity test is performed in a user-friendly way according to battery testing standards: IEEE 450-2010, IEEE 1188-2005, IEEE 1106-2015, IEC 60896-11/22 and other.
The battery tester enables setting the discharge current up to 300 A, with 0,1 A resolution. If higher currents are required, BLU-C units can be connected in parallel, or BXL additional load units can be used.
A user can select one of four discharge modes:
Additionally, different battery duty cycles can be simulated using user-selectable discharge profiles.
Testing can be carried out without disconnecting the battery from the equipment it supplies.
