Batteries are important devices commonly found in substations and other industrial facilities. They power equipment during power failures and during preventive maintenance. Testing the battery if it can still hold a charge is not enough. To thoroughly test the electrochemical characteristics of a battery, an impedance test is conducted.
To measure battery impedance, the tester passes a low voltage AC through the battery. The RLC characteristics of the battery components determine the amount of AC current that can go through it. Ideally, the battery should have low impedance. A high impedance means that the battery components are deteriorating.
The Megger BITE3 Battery Impedance Test Set is a battery impedance tester that can assess the health of lead-acid batteries with a power capacity of 2000 Ah.
It not only lets you measure battery impedance but also cell voltage, float & ripple currents and interconnection resistance.The Megger BITE3 Battery Impedance Test Set meets the specifications outlined in the IEEE 450, 1106 and 1188. This Megger meter also includes the PowerDB LITE software for accurate and comprehensive diagnostics.
