Compatible with the earlier BCT-1000
Available in 128-cell and 256-cell versions
Laptop computer data logging unit provides the display and programming parameters for the test (Dedicated computer recommended, not included in standard kit).
The BCT-2000 performs a capacity test using a programmed, constant current or constant power load. This test predicts reliability and remaining battery life before replacement is necessary.
An integrity test, using a high current momentary load, lets you identify weak cells and conduction paths.
Data Acquisition Module and Data Logging Unit
The BCT is a combination load control and data logging system consisting of a data acquisition module and a laptop computer data logging unit. The data acquisition module acquires all cell voltage, overall string voltage, and current readings and is available in 128-cell and 256-cell versions. The computer data logging unit displays the programming parameters for the test.
The BCT's proprietary interface circuits and custom software control all standard Albér continuous and momentary load units. The standard BCT-2000 can be programmed to apply a constant current or constant power load on any battery string up to 600VDC. During a load test, the system records overall voltage, load current, and up to 256-cell voltages. Programmable alarm levels warn of low voltages and can automatically pause testing before any cell reaches reversal or an unsafe state.
The best proven method for determining whether a battery will perform is to test it under load conditions. Proper load testing is the only way to determine where the battery resides on its expected life curve. The Albér BCT-2000 capacity test system will test any battery in service today.
