SBS-4815CT: Battery Capacity Tester

Battery Discharger / Capacity Tester for 20–60 Vdc Battery Systems

The SBS-4815CT is a fully programmable and portable constant current load bank including individual cell monitoring wireless modules with detailed data acquisition, display and reporting capabilities.

Built-in memory continuously records discharge data including: overall system voltage, current and individual cell voltages (when modules are installed).

Parallel Operation

Alone the SBS-4815CT has a 0–150 Amp constant current draw range. However it is possible to parallel additional load banks of the same voltage range with the SBS-4815CT to increase current draw.

With the optional P/N 8400-600A DC clamp the user can discharge up to 750 Amps and the SBS-4815CT will monitor the total DC current being drawn by up to three load banks in parallel.
