Batteries are Complex – Avoid Problems with the Megger BITE 2P

  • Uncategorized

Batteries are complex chemical mechanisms. They have numerous components from grids, active material, posts, jar and cover, etc. – any one of which can fail.

Megger_bite2pThe Megger BITE 2P Battery Impedance Tester determines the condition of lead-acid and nickel-cadmium cells up to 7000 Ah. An advanced feature set has been developed that includes Pass/Warning/Fail calculations based on a user-entered baseline value, advanced printing functions and more. The case of the BITE 2P consists of both the transmitter and a carrying case for all of the standard accessories in an all-in-one unit.

The BITE 2P works by applying a test current across the battery string while on-line, then measuring the total current (ac ripple + test current) and the voltage drop of each cell/jar. It then calculates the impedance. The BITE 2P also measures dc voltage and interconnection (strap) resistance to help determine the overall condition of the entire battery string’s electrical path from terminal plate to terminal plate.

Megger BITE 2P Battery Impedance Tester features:

•    Internal memory for storing measurements, pilot and ambient cell temperatures and ripple current.
•    15-second testing per cell
•    RS232 PC connectivity for data analysis and report generation
•    Built-in printer
•    100 to 130 volts and 210 to 250 V AC input voltages
•    Large digital LC screen
•    6.50 VDC at 1.10 Amperes output
•    0.5% one sigma precision
•    3-second settling time
•    EMC Directive 2004/108/EC and LVD Directive 2006/95/EC compliant
•    Weighs 8.2kg unpacked

Megger is one brand you can count on, and Protec offers for rent, lease or purchase, all the electrical testing equipment you need to get the job done.
