Battery tester from Megger tests batteries to 200Vdc
Megger battery tester can assess lead acid batteries, NiCD batteries, and lithium-ion batteries up to 200Vdc. The BITE5 is ideal for use in transmission and distribution substations, solar, UPS maintenance, telecom and data centre applications.
Test and measurement
The handheld tester can measure and record AC voltage up to 600V, DC voltage up to 1000V, voltage ripple, DC current, AC current, as well as temperature. It can also perform impedance testing, which helps to identify a failing battery, on cells up to 200V.
The BITE5 can be used in place of a battery voltage monitor (BVM) to support discharge testing. It measures and records voltage, DC current, impedance and temperature of each cell throughout the entire discharge process. It also reduces set-up time and eliminates the concern of dips falling off the cell.
Additional testing capabilities
Measuring and recording the output of solar cells and solar combiner boxes up to 1000V DC is also possible when using this unit.
The BITE5 features a colour touchscreen. All historical trended data can be viewed on the unit. By using a USB or a micro-SD card, all data is able to be recorded and transferred to PowerDB software to create custom reports. The BITE5 meets the requirements of IEC61010, CE, and CAT IV at 600V.
