The Universal Battery Tester (UBT) is particularly designed for cycle life and capacity testing of automotive batteries. It can also be used for testing other types of batteries and modules. The UBT performs charging and discharging in accordance with the programmed test schedule. Parameters are constant current, constant voltage, constant resistance and constant power.
For data evaluation, the UBT runs either with Digatron/Firing Circuits well-known Battery Manager or BTS-600 software. Battery Manager is usually applied for quality assurance and high volume testing, whereas BTS-600 is used for research and development requirements.
In the standard version, one cabinet contains 5 or 10 charge-/discharge circuits connected to one common DC bus bar power supply.
Numerous options are available such as paralleling circuits, single cell operation, cell/battery drop out , multi range switching, temperature inputs, inputs for reference electrodes, data-logger interface, CAN-Bus interface as well as digital inputs and outputs and a RS 232 interface to the climatic chamber.
