Specific Gravity Tester with Downloading Capabilities for Lead Acid or Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd) Batteries
The SBS-3510 uses oscillating U-tube technology to measure specific gravity and temperature of lead acid or nickel cadmium batteries within seconds. The unit is able to take readings between the range of 0.0000 to 3.0000. With the ability to communicate wirelessly to a printer or computer via the integrated Bluetooth interface, testing results can be uploaded into an easy-to-read report.
Unlike other digital hydrometers on the market, the measuring cell can be replaced if damage occurs. This design feature eliminates the need to replace the entire unit should the measuring cell become damaged.
An optional 90 degree bent filling tube provides easier access for measuring specific gravity in battery cells that are located in tight and hard-to-reach areas.
Maintaining the digital hydrometer through proper maintenance is essential to long lasting service life and accuracy. SBS recommends a maintenance interval of at least once a year. SBS is able to meet all digital service needs.Learn More
Specific Gravity Tester for Lead-Acid Batteries
Specific gravity testing is easy and efficient with the SBS-2003. Simply insert the nozzle into the battery and depress the finger pump, which draws a few drops of sulfuric acid (H2SO4) through the tube. Within three seconds the measured refractive index is converted into a temperature compensated specific gravity reading and the specific gravity, temperature and cell count are displayed. After testing is completed, you can transfer the data to your computer via Bluetooth and download results into an Excel report.
Combining a light weight and durable design with easy maintenance, field-replaceable spare parts and a large data storage memory, the SBS-2003 is suitable for use with lead acid batteries.
The SBS-2003 has the added benefit of storing the results for future download via Bluetooth.Learn More

Hydrometers (density meters) measure the specific gravity of liquids. Specific gravity is the ratio of the density of the liquid being tested to the density of water. In the case of battery testing, the hydrometer is measuring the specific gravity of the battery’s electrolyte. The higher the acid concentration in the electrolyte, the higher the specific gravity.
Based on the specific gravity, the user can determine the state of charge of the battery.
Retaining hydrometer readings and data over time is recommended by IEEE as part of any Battery Maintenance Program.Learn More
