SBS’s portable impedance/voltage testers are the fastest and most accurate impedance testers available today. In just seconds, the units test and record a battery's impedance, voltage and temperature. The units will give a Pass / Warning / Fail indication. The unit has a memory capable of holding 200 reference values for comparison, and 20 years worth of battery data for up to 300 Strings for full life data analysis. Battery management software is included with each testing kit which will help the user easily identify bad cells, create reports, save data and ensure the integrity of backup power systems. With a large 3.8” backlit LCD screen, a straightforward menu, and Excel-based software, the SBS-6500 is the simplest battery impedance testing unit on the market to learn and operate.
Routinely testing a battery's impedance assures the reliability of backup power systems and helps prevent unexpected failures. Our digital battery testing kit comes complete with everything needed to test all types of batteries as well as the software necessary to create reports for trending purposes and to satisfy NERC PRC-005 requirements and IEEE recommendations.
Impedance testing is commonly done in the utility, telecommunications, UPS and transportation industries.

The SBS-6500 is a multipurpose impedance and voltage tester. Cell and inter-cell and terminal connector readings are taken within seconds using the included pin probes (or optional clamp probes). The SBS-6500 can be programmed with site names, battery details and pass/warning/fail alarm set points for ohmic measurements (pass/fail for voltage) without the high current requirements and float voltage drop necessary for internal resistance testing types. All data is retained in the meter’s internal memory for easy on-site access. With a computer and the included software, the SBS-6500 generates custom graphical reports for historical trending and comparisons.
The SBS-6500 pairs with our SBS-3510, SBS-2510 and SBS-2003 digital hydrometers to import specific gravity readings into the SBS-6500. With this data merge, the SBS-6500 will store and generate reports with voltage, ohmic, temperature and gravity readings.
Data Storage: 300 battery strings x 250 cells per string x 4 tests per year over a period of 25 years = 7.5 million records
The SBS-6500 replaced the discontinued GL-1000, IBEX-1000 and IBEX-Ultra.Learn More
The SBS-6800 is a multipurpose conductance and voltage tester. Take cell or battery readings within seconds using the included pin probes or clamp probes. The SBS-6800 can be programmed with site names, battery details and pass/warning/fail alarm set points for ohmic measurements (pass/fail for voltage). All data is retained in the tester’s internal memory and can be printed directly to the optional printer, or exported for creating reports or trending. No software program is required.
Using the principle of conductance, the SBS-6800 measures the battery or cell’s ability to pass electricity through it. Conductance testing is standard throughout the telecommunications industry and is an accepted “ohmic measurement” for NERC Compliance and IEEE recommended maintenance practices.Learn More
