Capabilities

Scientifically Analyze Battery Performance

  • True constant current battery capacity test with results graphically displayed, constant power testing supported with Extended software upgrade
  • Discharge current is software and electronically regulated using a solid state switch and fan cooled electronic load
  • Test any type of battery; coin cell to automotive or larger. Presets for NiCad, NiMH, Lead Acid, Li Ion, Li Poly, Alkaline, Carbon Zinc, Mercury etc.
  • Solar cell profiling capability *
  • Lower current testing capabilities - down to 10 mA *

Perform Fast, High Power Testing

  • Tests quickly at real world load conditions, up to 150 watts or 40 amps maximum, whichever is higher
  • High voltage testing at up to 55 volts; the equivalent of 1 to 38 NiCad or NiMh cells
  • Optional 500 watt and 1000 watt amplifiers

Accuracy and Precision for Demanding Applications

  • On-board computer performs accurate measurement with 12 bit effective resolution. Auto ranging for 2 current ranges and three voltages
  • Each CBA is individually calibrated with a computerized calibration system
  • Calibration certification data provided with CBA IV Pro

Built-in Safety Features Provide Superior Battery Protection

  • Fail safe: automatic protection of temperature, current and power *
  • Safety watchdog stops a discharge in the event of a computer crash. *
  • Discharge test current user selectable from 0 to 40 Amps
  • Automatic voltage shut off at end of test using a software recommended or user selected safe discharge voltage
  • Automatic over-temperature shut off at end of test at using a software recommended or user selected maximum temperature with optional external magnetic temperature sensor.

Easy-to-Use Standard Software for Data Analysis

  • User selected battery cell chemistry, number of cells and test current
  • Software recommends safe tests based on user supplied battery information
  • Automatic graph setup and scaling
  • Measures and displays voltage, current, amp-hrs, watts and temperature*
  • Easy overlay comparisons of multiple graphs may be displayed saved and recalled
  • Save, display and print battery test graphs and battery labels
  • Plug and Play high speed USB interface, with easy to use and intuitive Windows® software supplied on CD ROM

* Requires optional temperature probe and extended software

Extended Software Upgrade License Unlocks Features for Serious Battery Testing

  • Power profile to characterize batteries, power supplies and solar cells
  • Programmable automatic duty cycle test with up to 999 second on/off cycle periods
  • Regulated constant power discharge (current goes up as battery voltage drops)
  • Temperature graphing with a recovery time option
  • Ragone power density charting using battery weight (used for performance comparison of energy sources charting energy density (Watt-Hours/kg) vs power density (W/kg))
  • Test-lead resistance voltage calibration utility to give higher accuracy voltage readings right at the battery terminals
  • Enables placement of user notes on graphs
  • Multiple CBA IV units may be used on one PC. Extended Software License is required for each unit and tied to the unit's serial number to unlock the Extended Features. Any units not tied to an Extended License will run under the Standard Software.

Powerpole® Connector Features & Benefits
  • Genderless Housings: Provide simplified assembly and minimize the number of components
  • Stackable Modular Housings: Available in four sizes to right size your connection need
  • Connection Versatility: Contacts for wire, PCB, or busbar all fit into the same housings
  • Low Resistance Connection: Silver or tin plated contacts inside housings that strongly force the contacts together
  • Color Coded Housings: Help ensure that connectors are assembled and mated correctly
  • Self Securing Design: Stainless steel springs create a robust force between the contacts that holds the connector in the mated condition, but allows it to be quickly disconnected.
