The Battery Load Unit – BLU100A is a stand-alone or a PC-controlled battery capacity test instrument, based on the state-of-the-art technology, using the most advanced power electronics solutions with coolers and fans integrated into it.
The BLU100A device is lightweight (12,3 kg / 27 lb.), developed to meet customer’s wide ranging test procedure requirements (standardized as well as customized). Using the BLU100A device, the capacity test is performed in an accurate, user-friendly way in accordance with the battery testing standards (IEEE 450-2010 / 1188-2005 / 1106-2005, IEC 60896-11/22 and other relevant standards).
Discharging can be performed at a constant current, constant power, constant resistance or in accordance with a pre-selected load profile. The discharge test can be conducted even in a case a battery remains connected to the load – by measuring and compensating the load current during the process.
The BLU100A device provides the discharge current of up to 160 A and may be applied to battery strings with up to 300 V voltage level.
