The Battery Load Unit – BLU340A is a stand-alone or a PC-controlled battery capacity test set, based on the state-of-the-art technology, using the most advanced power electronics solutions with coolers and fans integrated into device itself.
This device is a lightweight solution (20,6 kg / 45.4 lb.), developed to meet a customer’s wide ranging test procedure requirements (standardized as well as customized). Using the BLU340A device, the capacity test is performed in an accurate, user-friendly way in accordance with the battery testing standards:
- IEEE 450-2010
- IEEE 1188-2005
- IEEE 1106-2015
- IEC 60896-11/22 and other relevant standards.
Discharging can be performed at constant current, constant power, constant resistance or in accordance with a pre-selected load profile. The discharge test can also be conducted in case a battery remains connected to the load – by measuring the load current during the process.
Battery Load Unit provides the discharge current of up to 160 A and may be applied to battery strings with up to 300 V voltage level. Batteries can be positively or negatively grounded or free floating.To test a battery, the user should start the discharge after connecting the DV Power BLU340A to the battery and setting the voltage alarms to the correct level. With the current kept at a constant level, the alarm will sound once voltage drops to just above final voltage. If voltage drop poses a risk of deep discharge, as a result, the BLU will automatically close off the test.
The DV Power BLU 340A comes supplied with a mains cable, a standard transport case, a cable test set, cable bag for the cables and DV-Win software.
