Battery load bank BLU-T is a powerful and lightweight solution designed for condition assessment of telecommunication and radio equipment backup supply. This instrument can perform the battery capacity test on battery strings such as Pb, Li-ion, Ni-Cd, and others. It tests battery strings with voltages in the range of 0,9 – 70,5 V DC. As a special feature, the BLU110T model enables capacity testing of single PB, Ni-based as well as Li cells (with current up to 100 A). Additionally, when combined with Zero Voltage Discharge Module ZVD80, BLU-T enables full battery discharge down to 0 V with up to 60 A, required before battery recycling.
An overview of the maximum currents for BLU-T models for various voltage levels can be found in the table below.
The capacity test is conducted in an accurate, user-friendly way. Also, it is in accordance with battery testing standards: IEEE 450-2010, IEEE 1188-2005, IEEE 1106-2015, IEC 60896-11/22, and other relevant standards.
BLU-T battery load bank enables setting the discharge current up to 350 A, with 0,1 A resolution. If higher currents are required, the BLU-T units can be connected in parallel, or BXL-T additional load units can be linked.
The instrument offers a high power-to-weight ratio. BLU-T series has models starting from 12,8 kg / 28.2 lbs and up to 19,2 kW of power.
A user can select one of three discharge modes: Constant current, Constant power, and Constant resistance. Additionally, different battery duty cycles can be simulated using user-selectable discharge profiles.
Discharge parameters can be monitored in real-time during the capacity test. A 4.3-inch touch screen shows overall battery voltage, discharge current, discharge test time, and capacity during the entire test. Also, the capacity tester is compatible with DV-B Win software. A user can view a detailed numerical and graphical presentation of key parameters, and create reports in various formats.
Testing can be carried out without disconnecting the battery from the service.
