8 Channel Battery Analyzer (6-3000 mA, up to 5V) w/ Adjustable Cell Holders and Laptop & Software - BST8-3


In stock
Item Number: BST8-3

Personalization

* denotes required field

Voltage Input*
Computer Selection*

BST8-3 is an eight-channel battery analyzer to analyze small coin cells and cylindrical batteries from 6.0 mA to 3000 mA, up to 5V. Each channel of the analyzer has independent constant-current and constant-voltage source, which can be programmed and controlled by computer software. This system provides most applications in battery testing fields such as electrode materials research, battery performance test, small-scale battery formation, capability grading, battery pack testing and etc. The purchase comes with a brand new laptop with Microsoft Windows with 30 days free trial Microsoft Excel and the latest version of controller software installed and calibrated for immediate use. (Up to 20 sets of analyzers can be simultaneously controlled by one PC).

Channels

  • Eight independent programmable channels
  • Each channel can set different working modes and functions independently

Programs & Software

  • The software (TC5.3) with calibration function is included to set various working modes for measuring capacity and lifecycle for all types of rechargeable batteries
  • Working modes Include constant current discharge, constant current charge, constant voltage charge, constant resistance discharge, rest, cycles, etc.
  • Limited threshold conditions include voltage, current, time, capacity, negative voltage slope, etc.
  • With real-time monitoring windows and integrated graph/data windows, the testing process can be observed more directly and efficiently
  • During the test, the software will provide instructions and warnings for assistance
  • The calibration software can be used to calibrate the analyzer
  • MS Excel 2013 30 days free trial is pre-installed for you to output the Excel data file. (Note: Updated information on 5/21/2015)

Test Reports and Curves for analysis

  • Different types of curves can be created by software base on user definition. (Voltage-time curve, current-time curve, capacity-voltage curve, loops times charge/discharge capacity curve, loops times charge/ discharge efficiency curve, etc)
  • Data reports are created by software. User can easily compare the performance of the batteries tested in channels both visually and statistically

Protection and Auto-recover

If the power failure occurs during testing, the system will shut down all operating channels. Once power is recovered, the system will automatically resume those stopped channels and ensure that the test is normally conducted, so that no cases will lose any data.

Battery Holders

Two types of battery holders are included in the BST8-3 standard package:  

  • 8 alligator clips with cable for universal connecting (please click the first picture below to enlarge)
  • 8 spring load holders with adjustable length for measuring cylinder battery up to 70mm(H) (please click the second picture below to enlarge)
                

Laptop Computer

  • Brand new laptop with MS Window 8, MS Excel 2013 30 days free trial is included and latest version testing software are installed and calibrated for immediate use
  • Up to 20 sets of analyzers can be simultaneously controlled by one PC
  • Notice: It is suggested to use an external hard drive to keep an instant backup of the collected data.
           

Compliance

  • CE Certified
  • MET, TUV, CSA, UL certification are available upon request at extra cost

Warranty

Two Year limited warranty with lifetime support for the battery analyzer. (Note: MTI does not carry a warranty for the Laptops. In case service is needed for the laptops, please contact laptop manufacturer directly for warranty/non-warranty service.)

Application Notes 
  • New buyers must buy the software installed laptop to avoid trouble from installation. If you like to run multiple battery analyzers on one Laptop, you can just buy multiple analyzers with one laptop which are offered at a discounted price. 
  •  $300 will be deducted if one analyzer is purchased without the basic laptop.
  • Warning: Please in choose NEVER for Screen and Sleep off in Power& Sleep setting of your computer, or it may lose connection from battery analyzer.
  • The customer can easily combine up to 20 battery analyzers (0.002-1mA, 0.1-10mA, 6mA-3000mA) by using normal Ethernet cable connector via one computer. 
  • You may order MTI's movable rack to organize the battery analyzers (click the first picture below for more information)
  • You may order internal resistance tester to measure DC resistivity (click the second and third picture below for more information)
