8 Channel Battery Analyzer (6-3000 mA, up to 5V) w/ Cell Holder, Laptop Software & Optional WIFI Control - BST8-3


In stock
Item Number: BST8-3

Personalization

* denotes required field

Voltage Input*
Connection Mode

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, with gold-plated pins for the best connection. Each channel of the analyzer has an 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, etc. The purchase comes with a brand new laptop with Microsoft Windows 10 with a one-month free trial of 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
  • A one-month free trial of MS Excel 2013 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 based 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 the software. Users can easily compare the performance of the batteries tested in channels both visually and statistically

Protection and Auto-recover

If a 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 Gold Plated spring load holders with adjustable height for measuring cylinder or coin cell up to 70mm(H) (pls click a picture below  1-2 to enlarge)
    • 8 alligator clips with cable for universal connecting (especially for pouch cell, please click the pictures 3-4 below  )
  • Optional holder: 8-Channel coin cell testing board for measuring coin cells easily  (click Pic 5 to order )
  •                       

Laptop Computer

         &
WIFI Option

  • Brand new laptop ( 4GB RAM 128GB SSD) with MS Windows 10 and the latest version testing software is installed and calibrated for immediate use.
  • Notice: It is suggested to use an external hard drive to keep an instant backup of the collected data.
  • Upgrade the battery tester with a remote wireless control which provides up to 50 meters operating range in an open area. Such a great feature is available upon request at an extra cost  ( add $195 ).
             

Compliance

  • CE Certified
  • MET, TUV, CSA, UL certifications are available upon request at extra cost
  • Calibration Certificate by MTI is available 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 the laptop manufacturer directly for warranty/non-warranty service.)
Operation Manual & Video

       
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. 
  • Warning: The time for Screen and Sleep should be set to "NEVER" in the Power& Sleep setting of your computer to avoid causing disconnection from the battery analyzer. 
  • The customer can easily combine up to 20 battery analyzers (0.002-1mA, 0.1-10mA, 6mA-3000mA) by using a 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 an internal resistance tester to measure DC resistivity (click the second and third picture below for more information)
