Alber CRT-400 Details
Cell Voltage and Resistance Tester
The Cellcorder CRT-400 is Alber's newest handheld cell voltage and resistance tester. This exciting addition to Alber's test, diagnostic and trending products measures and records cell float voltage, internal cell resistance, and intercell connection resistance.
The Cellcorder CRT-400 features optional Bluetooth technology that lets the technician focus on the batteries and test probes, without having to read instructions on the display. The CRT-400 communicates via an earpiece, delivering commands describing the next steps and confirming results. This feature will be especially appreciated in dark or noisy battery room environments.
Another exciting feature is a new USB port and Flash drive that allows quick transfer of data files to a computer. Using the Alber Battery Analysis Software, test results can be displayed and analyzed to determine battery state of health. The Flash drive also doubles as an interim storage device until test data is saved permanently. As a bonus, the Bluetooth option can also transfer data files to a computer.
Other features include a graphical reflective LCD display for better contrast, and new cables and clamps.
Accurate Data in a Fraction of Normal Test Time
The Cellcorder cell
resistance tester displays and records cell float voltage, internal cell
resistance, and intercell connection resistance. A compatible hydrometer lets
you transfer specific gravity and temperature data using the IR port.
Use the Cellcorder on a single cell or multicell modules. The Flash drive allows virtually unlimited data storage. Use the Flash drive, IR port or optional Bluetooth to transfer readings to a PC for analysis and report generation.
The high contrast, 128 x 64 pixel, backlit graphical display shows menus and test results. A fully charged Cellcorder can test for seven hours, and isolated operation helps ensure safety and makes the Cellcorder easy to move around.
Float Voltage Readings - The Cellcorder measures the voltage applied during full float operation. The voltage range covers all cells or modules up to 20 volts, with accuracy to four full digits.
Internal Cell Resistance - Using a patented process, the Cellcorder applies a momentary load and calculates internal cell resistance by determining instantaneous voltage drop and load current. Algorithms make this measurement possible on cells floating on-line or off-line.
Intercell Resistance - The Cellcorder measures the resistance between two electrically connected cell terminals. The measurement consists of connector resistance and contact resistance at the points of connection to the cell terminals.
Auto Ranging - The Cellcorder automatically selects the correct voltage range, load resistor, and test time.
Data Extraction and Analysis - After testing, transfer data to the PC via Flash drive, IR interface or optional Bluetooth. Trending software analyzes test data, displays results in graph or tabulated formats, and saves and prints reports. You may export reports in ASCII, Excel or comma-delimited format so other programs can generate customized reports.
Low Cost - The Alber Cellcorder replaces three instruments that individually cost more than this one. Significant savings also result from taking more readings in less time and analyzing data faster.
Multicell Capability -The Cellcorder reads either single cells or multicell modules.
Reliable Readings - The Cellcorder performs even in high noise environments - without the need to disconnect the battery from service. Up to a 60 amp DC load (on 2V cells) is used to calculate internal cell resistance and intercell resistance. Circuitry rejects the 50Hz/60Hz ripple often troublesome to AC-based impedance and conductance meters.
The Cellcorder CRT-400 comes with a 256M Flash drive, resistance and voltage test leads, carrying case, AC charger, and data trending and analysis software. An optional printer is available.
