Scientifically Analyze Battery Performance

Specifically designed to test and evaluate small cells and batteries - those capable of supplying quite low discharge currents. Such small cells must be evaluated using even greater measurement precision than what is capable with CBA V or CBA IV model. Designed to precisely test virtually any small size battery, any chemistry or number of cells, from 0.7 to 10 volts. The CBA HR is capable of testing batteries at load currents from 1 mA to 1000 mA, (10 watt maximum), in increments of 1 mA.

An optional 4-wire test harness improves voltage measurement accuracy by minimizing the voltage sensing lead wire resistance effect. Some optional harnesses also include an external magnetic probe, which when used with optional Extended Software allow logging of battery / ambient temperature and automatic over-temperature test cutoff.

Easy-to-Use Standard Software for Data Analysis

Standard Software is supplied with the CBA HR. In addition to the four basic test modes included with the CBA V and CBA IV (Mission Profile, Discharge, Charge Monitor, and Power Profile), the CBA HR adds two additional test modes (Duty Cycle and Multiple Discharge) to allow user simulation of real world battery load variations found in typical remote sensor sleep / transmit applications.

Extended Software Upgrade License Unlocks Features for Serious Battery Testing

The optional Extended Software license includes additional test modes, ability to adjust sample rates, custom voltage & current calibration and provides the ability to graph battery temperature when the optional magnetic temperature probe is connected. This optional temperature probe is included in selected test harness assemblies and is connected to the CBA HR via a 3.5mm accessory input.

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.
