SBS-8400: Battery Capacity Tester
Battery Capacity Tester with Monitoring
Constant Current Battery Load Bank with Wireless Data Logging, 10–300 Vdc, 0–120 Amp
The SBS-8400 was designed by SBS as an improved version of Megger’s TORKEL 840 battery load tester*.
The SBS-8400 has similar discharging capabilities as the Megger TORKEL 840, however, our battery load bank has the advantage of having a large user-friendly touch screen menu and a built-in data monitoring acquisition system, complete with wireless modules for monitoring individual cell voltages.
The wireless modules are easy to hook up. Each module can record the real-time voltage of up to four individual cells or multi-cell blocks. During the test, the user can view real-time data on the unit’s large 5.7" color screen or through their own laptop.
Example of how the wireless modules would be installed on a 48 Vdc system consisting of qty. (24) 2 volt cells:
Powerful analysis software collects discharge data and stores it, where it can then be generated into a variety of customized reports, like those above. Unlike basic load banks, the SBS-8400 is a high-tech solution to the easy, efficient collection of data and the generation of records for archiving.
Paralleling Load Banks
It is possible to parallel additional load banks (almost all models will work) with the SBS-8400 to increase the current. With the optional P/N 8400-600A DC clamp you can discharge up to 600 Amps and the SBS-8400 will monitor the total DC current being drawn by both load banks combined.
