Fluke Australia introduces a new range of battery analysers designed to simplify the workflow of testing stationary batteries and battery banks.
The mainstay of backup power systems, batteries require regular testing to ensure their reliability. The new Fluke 500 Series battery analysers test batteries through an intuitive user interface that provides quick, guided test setups ensuring technicians are capturing the correct data while visual and audio feedback cues reduce the risk of errors.
The Fluke 500 Series is ideal for testing mission critical battery back-up applications in data centres, hospitals, airports, utilities, oil and gas and railways.
Built rugged, the compact Fluke 500 Series battery analysers perform all key measurements including battery resistance, DC and AC voltage, DC and AC current (Fluke BT521 model only), ripple voltage, frequency, and battery temperature (BT521 only). The 500 Series has been specifically designed for measurements on stationary batteries including GEL, AGM (absorbed glass MAT), lithium-ion, as well as wet-cell lead-acid batteries.
Measurement results are displayed on the battery analyser’s integrated LCD display eliminating the need for technicians to stop and look at the mainframe, thereby streamlining the battery testing process. Technicians can capture voltage readings and temperature logging automatically or via the integrated save button, simplifying and speeding up the test process.
Key features of the Fluke 500 Series battery analysers include infrared temperature measurement (BT521 only); tri-colour LED for pass/fail/warning indications; audio feedback; convenient magnetic hanging strap with shoulder strap; innovative carrying harness reducing fatigue while measuring long battery strings; and simple, yet powerful reporting and analysis tools managing large volumes of data to produce analysis graphics and data tables on a PC or create quick email format reports with .csv files.
