A. Dimension: 380 x 440 x 265 mm (14.9 x 17.3 x 10.4 inch) Weight: ~26 kg (~57 lbs)
A. Yes, each one of our ATEQ BCA is delivered with a calibration certificate.
A. With the EEST 50-60, you can manage up to 21 cells, but with our new ATEQ BCA product range, you can manage up to 24 cells.
A. There are two different ways to use the micro-USB port. Firstly, if you are using a USB memory device, you can download test reports, or if you have personalized sequences, you can upload them via the SCSS Software. The second way is to connect a micro-USB cable from the computer directly, to use the ATEQ SCSS or MCMS software control and programming features.
A. With the new ATEQ BCA, there is no minimum voltage needed to start a charge at a constant current.
A. To measure each cell of the battery, our products allow you to connect to the battery cells in three different ways: a Banana cable with threaded spacers, a Banana cable with alligator clips, or by using a measurement cable with a special cover. More details are available if required.
A. With the new ATEQ BCA 75 Volts / 40 Amps version, the maximum discharge current is 60 Amps with full power of 1750 W.
A. The principle of deep discharge is that the battery is discharged at a constant current until a certain voltage is obtained (for example, 20V on a battery of 20 cells, i.e. 1 V per cell), then a 1 Ohm resistor is connected to the terminal of each cell, and the cells are allowed to drop slowly to 0 V. This generally lasts about 12 hours.
A. The principle of deep discharge is closely related to the Ni-Cd technology of aerospace batteries with electrolyte. This technology allows the voltage to go down to 0 V, which is practical when maintaining the batteries (e.g. changing a cell) to avoid electric shocks and/or short circuits with tools.
A. The measurement of cells with 1 Ohm protection is made with the same cable.
A. The cell voltage measurement is very accurate, typically <10mv.
A. When you don’t have the 1 Ohm resistance connected to the cells, no current is flowing, and the measurement is really what you have on the cell.
A. When you have a 1 Ohm resistance connected to the cell, the current is equal to (Cell Voltage/1 Ohm), so, The lower the Cell Voltage is, the less current is available.
A. Direct connection to a printer is not possible from the BCA, but using the MCMS software, it is possible to print reports and graphs, via the computer.
A. The MCMS software manages one or more BCAs (max 12), with the management of cycles and sequences for each of them, using the RS485 wiring and then chain wiring.
The SCSS is used for configuration, sequence download, and calibration, using the micro USB/micro or with RS485.
A. The SCSS Software can be used with either the Micro USB or the RS485 port.
A. With the new ATEQ BCA, you can upload primary sequences onto the device, using the SCSS software.
