Battery test equipment Battery string, a major component of expensive communications equipment. Through the maintenance of such a forecast could have been avoided, and to identify poor performance and replacement to reduce the cost of the cells.

The BITE series of testers measure battery impedance, and so offer minimal disturbance to the string, and can identfy the failing cell.

The Torkel is a specialist product for the telecoms industry. Torkel is a battery load tester. It measures the actual capacity of the battery and the profile of the power output.

The ideal instrument to test the connecting straps of the battery string is a DLRO10 low resistance ohmmeter.


Battery test equipment With the increasing dependency of back up systems on battery strings, and the escalating cost of replacing batteries, instrumentation and software systems that can measure, trend and manage the life-cycle of cells is a cost effective option.

There are two methodologies for testing batteries.

The first, impedance testing is an on line test and can be performed frequently to identify individual weak cells before they fail.

The second, battery discharge test is, normally, an off-line test and tests the actual output of the whole battery under load conditions. This will show what will actually happen if the battery is required to take the load.

Most battery systems are floating and have earth leakage monitors and trips if there is an earth fault. The Battery Ground Fault Tracer allows you to trace a faulty circuit easily in a complex floating system.

Cable testing and fault locating equipment Power cable fault locating and testing takes on a whole new dimension with the modular cable fault locating concept from Megger. We have geared our development to the industry requirements for a more tempered fault locating method and have developed more sophisticated methods that reduce the stress on insulation systems.

Circuit breaker test equipment Circuit Breakers are one of the critical "safety-valves" of electrical systems and basic maintenance procedures are essential to maintain maximum reliability.

Effective circuit breaker maintenance requires well-organized, accurate testing. The ability to accurately compare circuit breaker tests with previous test results is essential. It is, therefore, imperative to conduct tests in exactly the same way and under the same conditions as those conducted earlier. Comparison can then provide a clear picture of any deviations and changes, thereby indicating whether or not the circuit breaker should be kept in operation or taken out of service for further investigation.

Comprehensive, accurate testing also requires analytical tools and efficient reporting. It must be possible to validate test results in detail and then easily compare them with other test results.

The TM1700, TM1800, EGIL and CABA Win software program have earned a benchmark reputation in circuit breaker analysis.
