New battery tester from Digatron said to be the smallest in the world

Digatron Power Electronics has introduced a new universal battery test system. The UBT-RE expands the specifications of the MCT-RE lithium cell tester (300A peak -1V to +6V) to now include 150A -1V to +20V for high current testing of SLI/AGM/lithium batteries.

The system is said to be one of the most compact battery testers in the world, sporting six individual (and parallelable) 150A/20V charge discharge circuits in a single 19in rack formation, with up to 48 circuits in one cabinet (this would normally occupy a space of eight cabinets). This is particularly important where space is precious and there are many batteries under test.

Said Kevin Campbell, CEO of Digatron Power Electronics, “Battery testing laboratories are usually hot and noisy environments, but our six pack system runs quiet and cool. What’s more, customers have the satisfaction of being able to run more circuits in a smaller space and save money by putting all the discharged power back into the grid – it’s small, green and mean.”
