Megger  offers TORKEL 820 battery load units designed to discharge batteries efficiently.  

During a power outage, crucial telecommunication and radio equipment must be kept operating by batteries.  

However, the capacity of these batteries can drop significantly for a number of reasons before their calculated life expectancy is reached. Battery capacity should thus be checked to prevent expensive downtime in the event of a power failure.  

The most reliable way to determine battery capacity is to conduct a discharge test.  

The TORKEL 820 battery load units feature a unique design that combines efficiency with portability.  

Using TORKEL 820, 24V and 48V batteries can be discharged at a current of 270 A while 12V batteries can be discharged at 135A.  

Moreover, two or more TORKEL 820 units and/or extra load units can be linked together if higher current is required. Battery discharging proceeds at constant current, constant power or constant resistance, or in accordance with a pre-selected load profile.  

TORKEL 820 battery load units issue a warning and shut down the test automatically under any of the following situations:

  • The voltage has dropped to a certain level
  • Discharging has continued through a certain time interval
  • A certain amount of capacity has been dissipated
