SBS-6500 Internal Resistance Tester

Digital Battery Analyzer

Complete Battery Resistance Tester and Data Logger

(Meets IEEE/NERC Standards)


The SBS-6500 analyzer is a multipurpose resistance and voltage testing kit. It has a storage capacity of 7.5 million data records for capturing and analyzing the entire history and details of up to 300 battery systems. Through your PC, or while on-site, the SBS-6500 can be programmed with site names, battery details and pass/warning/fail alarm set points for resistance measurements (pass/fail for voltage). All data is retained in the meter’s internal memory for on-site comparisons and historical trending. It connects to a PC via USB to create custom graphical reports in PDF, Excel or Word formats.


The SBS-6500 will also directly import specific gravity readings from an optional SBS-2003 digital hydrometer, storing voltage, resistance, temperature and gravity readings inside the SBS-6500 tester for future reference/reporting.


Storage capacity of 7.5 million data records, retained in the meter’s internal memory for instant historical trends.
