Description

Accurately assess lead-acid battery deterioration using proprietary technology

The new Battery Tester BT3554-50 sets a new standard for UPS and lead-acid battery diagnostics. Since the battery’s internal resistance and voltage are measured using the impedance method, diagnostics can be performed while the battery is connected to its host device, without taking it offline. Proprietary noise reduction technology allows more accurate measurement, even in noisy environments.

 

Enjoy measurement guidance and easy data management functionality with the latest software

When the BT3554-50 is paired with a dedicated mobile app (GENNECT Cross), the mobile device will provide audio guidance announcing the next battery number to be measured. This feature helps prevent erroneous measurements. You can also set up measurement locations information’s and battery numbers in advance to create profiles to which measurement data and diagnostic results will be linked. This capability simplifies data management, even when performing diagnostic work on large numbers of batteries.

 

How to use Battery Testers: Observing Measurement Results Captured Wirelessly on a Mobile Device

Measured values captured by the Hioki BT3554-50 Battery Tester with Bluetooth wireless technology can be displayed and saved onto a mobile device wirelessly. (When using the Wireless Adapter Z3210)
The results can also be used to create automatic reports. Simply install the free GENNECT Cross app onto your mobile device and connect to the Hioki BT3554-50. Reports created on your mobile device can even be e-mailed to the office to further increase work efficiency. Data uploaded by the Gennect Cross app can also be loaded into a PC to view the historical state of the specified battery as a graph.

 

 

Generating comparative judgments based on a lead-acid battery’s internal resistance and voltage

By using its comparator function to simultaneously measure the internal resistance and voltage of a lead-acid, nickel-cadmium, or nickel-hydride battery, the BT3554-50 can generate comparative judgments quantifying degradation of the cell based on user-specified threshold values.
Furthermore, voltage sign detection facilitates instantaneous determination of whether batteries have been connected properly in newly installed UPS systems.

Saving data easily just by placing the leads in contact with a battery’s terminals

The BT3554-50 auto-hold function automatically holds measured values once they stabilize. The instrument’s auto-memory function, which automatically stores measured values resulting from the auto-hold function in its internal memory, further streamlines work tasks.
