The Megger TORKEL™ 900 series is used to perform load/discharge testing, which is the only way to determine battery systems’ actual capacity. Together with the optional cell voltage logger, BVM, connected directly to the TORKEL 900, it becomes a complete, stand-alone discharge test system. The high discharge capacity of TORKEL allows for shortening the test time. Discharging can take place at up to 220 A, and if a higher current is needed, two or more TORKEL units or extra load units can be linked together. Tests can be conducted at constant current, constant power, constant resistance or in accordance with a pre-selected load profile.

Testing can also be carried out without disconnecting the battery from the equipment it serves. Using a DC clamp-on probe, TORKEL measures the total battery current while constantly regulating it. Battery systems can be plus or minus grounded or free floating. The test results can be presented and edited on a computer using the included PC software TORKEL Viewer.
