  • Description

    Megger BITE2 Battery Impedance Tester 246002B

    The Megger BITE2 Battery Impedance Tester (246002B) can be used to determine the condition of lead-acid and nickel-cadmium cells that operate up to 7000AH in applications such as:

    • Electrical power generation plants
    • Substations; utility, railway and industrial
    • Telecoms facilities; CO, Wireline, Wireless MTSO
    • UPS Systems
    • Railway signals and communications
    • Aircraft auxiliary power units
    • Marine and military

    With a test time of less than 15 seconds for each cell and inter-cell connector, one person can quickly and precisely measure internal cell impedance, DC terminal voltage and inter-cell connection resistance with simple pass/warning/fail indicators, without having to disconnect the battery system.

    Impressively, the instrument can also measure AC ripple current that can have an adverse effect on the condition of a battery by causing it to overheat; effectively, the life of a lead-acid battery is halved if its temperature raises by as little as 10°C.

    Using the BITE2 requires no battery discharge in comparison with load cycle testing, which requires substantial downtime and repeated discharges. Moreover, the instruments do not stress the battery in anyway, contrasting with other testing methods.

    The Megger BITE 2 has the ability to store test measurements on its internal memory. These records, along with other data such as ambient/pilot cell temperatures and AC ripple current assist in determining the overall condition of a battery system. Megger’s PowerDB Lite software is supplied with the BITE 2, conforming with the traceability demands of the IEEE requirements.
