  • The Importance of Battery Testers Fluke Pro Tips

    Fluke Pro, Jason Axelson explains why early identification of battery failure helps keep your assets as well as your company up and running.

    Use a battery tester to measure voltage, internal resistance, and strap resistance to find indications of early-stage battery failure or installation problems.

    Key measurements – Internal battery resistance, dc and ac voltage, dc and ac current, ripple voltage, frequency, and temperature.

    Sequence measurement mode – Automatic or manual sequence testing of battery strings with automatic measurement storage including voltage, resistance, and temperature (with BTL21 intelligent test probe), eliminating the need to press a button each time measurement needs to be saved.

    Comprehensive logging – All measured values are automatically captured during testing and can be reviewed on the instrument before downloading for on-the-go analysis.

  • Fluke 500 Series Battery Analyser

    The Fluke 500 Series Battery Analyser is the ideal test tool for maintenance, troubleshooting and performance testing of individual stationary batteries and battery banks used in critical battery backup applications.

    Some key features of the Fluke 500 Series include:
    • Battery Voltage – During the internal resistance test, Fluke Battery Analysers also measure the voltage of the battery under test
    • Discharge Volts – The Discharge mode collects the voltage of each battery multiple times at a user-defined interval during a discharge or load test. Users can calculate the time a battery takes to drop to the cut-off voltage and use this time to determine the capacity loss of the battery
    • Ripple Voltage Test – Measures unwanted residual ac component of the rectified voltage in dc charging and inverter circuits. Allows users to test ac components in dc charging circuits and find one of the root causes of battery deterioration
    • Meter and Sequence Modes – The Meter mode is used for quick tests or troubleshooting. In this mode, you can save and read the readings in a measurement or time sequence. The Sequence mode is for maintenance tasks with multiple power systems and battery strings. Before a task starts, users can configure a profile for the task for data management and report generation
    •Threshold and Warning – Users can configure a maximum of 10 sets of thresholds and receive a Pass/ Warning/ Fail indication after each measurement.
    • Intercell Strap Resistance Test and Data Management – Measures the resistance of the intercell connection between batteries in a string. Once the measurements are completed Fluke Battery Management Software version 1.0.69 can now report the strap resistance for a battery string or historical data over time and much more.

  • World Metrology Day 2022 | Metrology in the Digital Era

    Since May 20, 1875, when representatives of 17 nations signed the Metre Convention, the world has agreed upon one, uniform measurement system–celebrated through World Metrology Day. Over the years this system has been adjusted and adapted to changes in technology. Throughout the first three industrial revolutions, metrologists have been able to be more and more precise with their measurements which helps technology continue to advance. The digital era, or the fourth industrial revolution, is no different. Metrology plays a huge role in IoT, technology, and digitization.

    Fluke Chief Corporate Metrologist Jeff Gust, Metrologist Nicholas Mason, and Software Metrologist Michael Brown explain how metrology is playing a huge role in the digital era and will continue to help advance technology in all industries.
