TORKEL 860 Battery Load Unit
Weekly Hire Cost From: £500.00
Batteries in power plants and transformer substations must provide the equipment they serve with standby power in the event of a power failure.
Unfortunately, however, the capacity of such batteries can drop significantly for a number of reasons before their calculated life expectancy is reached. This is why it is so important the check batteries at regular intervals, and the only reliable way of measuring battery capacity is to conduct a discharge test.
TORKEL 860 is used for systems ranging from 12 to 480 V, and discharging can proceed at up to 110 A. If higher current is desired, two or more TORKEL 860 units or extra loads TXL can be linked together. Discharging can take place at constant current, constant output, constant resistance or in accordance with a pre-selected load profile.
