TORKEL 900-series Battery Load Unit

TORKEL 900-series Battery Load Unit
Product introduction

The TORKEL900 series of battery discharge test systems are Megger’s fourth generation of battery discharge analysers. Discharge testing is the only test method that provides a comprehensive insight into battery capacity, and is therefore an essential part of vigorous battery maintenance programmes.

▪ Batteries can be tested in service
▪ Battery cell monitor control integrated in the system
▪ Can be used with lead-acid, Ni-Cd, and other battery types
▪ Enhanced safety features including spark free connection, detection of blocked airflow, and emergency safety fuse
▪ Dynamic discharge technology – full power at all voltages „
▪ Real-time monitoring during test
▪ A complete standalone discharge test system
▪ Easy report function and calibration
▪ Easily expandable for larger battery banks using TXL extra load units
The TORKEL is connected to battery, the current and the voltage alarm levels are set. After starting the discharge, TORKEL keeps the current constant at the preset level. When the voltage drops to a level slightly above the final voltage, TORKEL issues an alarm.
If the voltage drops so low that there is a risk for deep discharging the battery, TORKEL shuts down the test. If the power supply is interrupted the test will continue when power is restored.
All values are stored in TORKEL and can easily be transferred via an USB-stick to a PC for evaluation and print out.
