CBA IV West Mountain Radio Computerised Battery Analyser

The CBA IV is a computerised battery analyser capable of scientifically and accurately analysing any type of battery from coin cells to automotive batteries.

* 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 with presets for NiCd, NiMH, Lead Acid, LiIon, LiPo, Alkaline, Carbon Zinc, Mercury and other battery chemistries.

* 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 NiCd or NiMH cells.

* Optional 500 watt and 1000 watt amplifiers.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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 (Requires optional temperature probe and extended software)

* 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


* Maximum continuous discharge rate: 100 Watts

* Maximum limited term discharge rate with < 3500 ma-hour battery: 125 Watts

* Maximum limited term discharge rate with < 1000 ma-hour battery: 150 Watts

* 0-3 amp accuracy: typically better than ±10mA

* 3-40 amp accuracy: typically better than ±45mA

* 0-5 volt accuracy: typically better than ±0.005V

* 5-15 volt accuracy: typically better than ±0.01V

* 10-60 volt accuracy: typically better than ±0.05V

* Maximum operating voltage: 55 Volts (48 Volt Lead Acid Telecom supported)

* Maximum discharge rate: 40 amps (Battery dependent, 100 watt continuous)

* Minimum discharge voltage to maintain 30 amps: 0.9Volts (Battery dependent)

* Minimum Voltage for a 40 amp discharge: 2 volts at completion of test (Battery dependant)

* Residual current drain, battery connected while not in use: < 0.003 Amps @ 12V

* High performance micro controller with built in USB interface and 12 bit A/D conversion.

* USB powered; the CBA does not use the battery being tested to run the CBA or the fan.

* System ready and Test in progress LED indicators, viewable from across a room.

* CBA internal over temperature sensing and protection.

* Graph printing on any standard color or B&W printer.

* Battery test label printing on standard 05160 stick-on labels.
