Reliable Battery Impedance Testing with the BITE Series from Megger

Megger_BITE2A battery has resistive, capacitive and inductive resistance, and the term impedance includes all three in one. The inductive component only shows up at high frequencies when the inductive reactance of the conductors inside the battery becomes a factor in the overall impedance.

One of the most common methods of testing the internal condition of storage cells is by measuring the internal impedance. This test is conducted by passing an AC voltage through the storage cell. If there are any problems in the internal condition of the battery, the impedance will increase. The measured results are compared to baseline data to determine the amount of deviation.

If you are in need of a reliable battery impedance tester consider the BITE series of Battery Impedance Test Sets from Megger:
