The 9220 Dual Bay Series Test System is designed for testing all battery chemistries including lead-acid, lead-cadmium, and other low voltage, high current, large format batteries (LFB) typically used in energy storage systems (ESS). The system is bi-directional requiring no additional equipment to charge or discharge the unit-under-test (UUT). Additionally, the built-in measurement system eliminates external measurement devices by providing time-stamped digital readings for voltage, current, power as well as Ah and kWh.

Advantages

  • Low voltage/high current cycler
  • Designed for testing all battery chemistries including:
    • Lead-acid
    • Lead-cadmium
    • Other low voltage, high current batteries
  • Multiple safety layers to protect battery/DUT

Benefits

  • Bi-directional system requiring no additional equipment to charge or discharge the unit-under-test (UUT)
  • The built-in measurement system eliminates external measurement devices
  • Regenerative, recycles up to 87% discharge power back to the facility
  • System cabinet features for easy installation
