Standby batteries are very important in an electrical facility. These are used to supply power to equipment in case of a power outage. They are also used to power test equipment during preventive maintenance. It is important to assess for the charge capacity to ensure that the batteries will be available in case they are needed. It is also vital to assess if the batteries can supply enough power at a rated load to ensure continuous and reliable operation .
To help test battery capacity and output stability, consider using the TORKEL 860 Battery Load Unitfrom Megger Test Equipment. This battery tester allows you to conduct tests on batteries that are in-service or off-line. When testing, it includes the load currents in the test parameters. You also have the option to set the alarm, shutdown points and excessive discharge parameters for custom testing configurations. It can be expanded for large battery banks that use TXL extra load units. It also includes the powerful PowerDB LITE software that lets you view test results and parameters in real-time.
