Full load, full capacity testing can and should be used on all critical battery applications, where a failure of the battery to operate to its capacity could be hazardous or cause considerable disruption.
Simpler battery monitoring systems can be useful in predicting some problems, and a routine replacement programme can reduce failure risks. But the only way to confirm a battery will operate at its design rating is to test it at full load and to full capacity.
The Intelligent Charging range of universal, programmable battery charger/analysers has been designed to perform these tests automatically, for a wide range of battery technologies and sizes. They will then correctly recharge the battery and print a test certificate for Quality Control purposes.
Many commercial and environmental benefits arise from this Battery Assurance technology too. The reasons will often include:
