Overview:

Best Suited For:
  • Chemical/Petrochemical (excl. Oil & Gas)
  • Nuclear Power
  • Oil and Gas
  • Power Generation
  • Power/Gas Transmission and Distribution

​​Albér BCT-2000 tests any size string up to 256 cells, performs constant current capacity and power capacity tests, supports UPS testing using AC load banks, and supports run-down testing using system load.

Proper load testing is the only way to determine where the battery resides on its expected life curve. The BCT-2000 capacity test system will test any battery in service today. The BCT-2000 performs a capacity test using a programmed constant current or constant power load and an integrity test using a high current momentary load, allowing identification of weak cells and conduction paths. The data acquisition module acquires all cell voltage, overall string voltage, and current readings.

  • Available in 128 cell and 256 cell versions.
  • Optional computer data logging unit provides the display and programming parameters for the test.

Continuous battery monitoringFeatures and Benefits:

Benefits

  • The BCT is a combination load control and data logging system consisting of a data acquisition module and a laptop computer data logging unit (laptop not included).
  • The data acquisition module acquires all cell voltage, overall string voltage, and current readings and is available in 128-cell and 256-cell versions. The computer data logging unit displays the programming parameters for the test.
  • The BCT's proprietary interface circuits and custom software control all standard Albér continuous and momentary load units. The standard BCT-2000 can be programmed to apply a constant current or constant power load on any battery string up to 600VDC. During a load test, the system records overall voltage, load current, and up to 256-cell voltages. Programmable alarm levels warn of low voltages and can automatically pause testing before any cell reaches reversal or an unsafe state.

Alber battery monitoring featureFeatures

  • Compatible with the earlier BCT-1000
  • Available in 128-cell and 256-cell versions
  • Laptop computer data logging unit provides the display and programming parameters for the test (Dedicated computer recommended, not included in standard kit).

Capacity Test

  • The BCT-2000 performs a capacity test using a programmed, constant current or constant power load. This test predicts reliability and remaining battery life before replacement is necessary.

Integrity Test

  • An integrity test, using a high current momentary load, lets you identify weak cells and conduction paths.

Data Acquisition Module and Data Logging Unit

During a load test, the system records overall voltage, load current, and up to 256-cell voltages. Programmable alarm levels warn of low voltages and can automatically pause testing before any cell reaches reversal or an unsafe state.
  • The best proven method for determining whether a battery will perform is to test it under load conditions. Proper load testing is the only way to determine where the battery resides on its expected life curve. The Albér BCT-2000 capacity test system will test any battery in service today.
