BT-3918 Battery Conductance Tester

The excellent performance of BT-3918 battery conductance tester will help you pick out the weak batteries and ensure battery performance in short time measurement. This test of battery internal resistance or battery conductance is essential for stationary batteries. It is also recommended by latest regulation of IEEE 450, IEEE 1188 and IEEE 1106.

Please also refer to BT-3915 Battery Resistance Tester for measurement of battery internal resistance. For real capacity measurement of battery and battery string, Kongter offers a whole series of K-3980 Battery Load Bank

Q: What is the difference among impedance, internal resistance and conductance measurement?
A: Impedance and internal resistance are using different method of measurement. Impedance testing is generally injecting a current signal to battery so as to measure its resistance. This is proved to be unstable and inconsistent measurement when UPS batteries are in live condition. 

Internal resistance measurement is generally using DC or AC signal discharge to measurement internal resistance and voltage of battery.
Conductance (unit: Simens) measurement is same as that of internal resistance (unit: Ohm). Their relationship is: S=1/R.
Kongter offers both options of measurement for resistance and conductance via discharging a low current AC signal. Customers with different measurement habits can find their right solutions accordingly.

Q: Do you use alligator testing clamp or pin probe for measurement of batteries?
A: Kongter offer both alligator testing clamp and pin probe for different types of batteries. User can select either as per their need.

Q: Can we test Resistance/Conductance of multiple blocks of cell once?
A: No, we can’t, because our way of measurement is not the old way of signal injection. Also, measurement of internal resistance or conductance is to help users fast detect the consistency of whole string and figure out the weak batteries with high resistance (or low conductance). Measurement of multiple cells at the same time will make it difficult to judge which cells are weak.

Q: Can I use the tester to measure Ni-cd and Lithium batteries?
A: Yes, besides standard battery types of 2V, 6V and 12V lead acid batteries, there is customized setting in the tester menu where users can add uncommon battery types including Ni-cd and Lithium batteries.

Q: How should I connect the alligator testing clamp or pin probe with battery?
A: To obtain best measurement accuracy and consistency, we will suggest always connect the clamps or pin probes with battery posts.
