CRT - 400 CellCorder Battery Tester 'EU Series'

The new CRT-400 is the latest version in the leading line of CellCorder battery test instruments. Lightweight, stylish, rugged and durable. Special features include new user-friendly operation, USB and IR data transfer, modem, graphical reflective LCD display for better contrast, and new cables and clamps.

Accurate data in a fraction of normal test time.

The intelligent, lightweight CellCorder cell resistance tester displays and records cell float voltage, internal cell resistance, and inter-cell connection resistance. Using a compatible hydrometer such as our CTL-200 Hydrostik Digital Data logging Hydrometer / Thermometer, you may automatically transfer data, such as specific gravity and temperature, using the on-board infrared port.

Battery being testedUse the CellCorder on a single cell or multi cell modules. Data is stored using a memory card that allows virtually an unlimited amount of data storage. The memory card, IR port, or internal modem transfer readings to a PC for analysis and advanced report generation via the supplied software.

The high contrast, 128 x 64 pixel, backlit graphical display shows menus and test results. A fully charged CellCorder can test for up to seven hours, and isolated operation helps ensure safety and makes the CellCorder easy to move around. Recharge power is supplied by a wall plug adapter.

Low cost The CellCorder replaces three instruments that individually cost as much as or more than this one instrument. Significant savings result from taking more readings in less time and analysing data more rapidly.

Multi cell capability The CellCorder provides readings on either single cells or Multi cell modules.

Reliable readings The CellCorder displays superior performance even in high noise environments - without the need to disconnect the battery from service. The instrument uses up to a 60 amp DC load (on 2V cells) to calculate internal cell resistance and inter-cell resistance. Circuitry rejects the 50Hz/60Hz ripple often troublesome to AC-based impedance and conductance meters.

System features & benefits

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. Cell or module reading accuracy is to four full digits.

Internal Cell Resistance

The internal resistance of a cell can be determined by how that cell responds to a momentary load. The instantaneous voltage drop and load current applied are used to calculate the resistance. CellCorder algorithms make this measurement possible on cells floating on-line or off-line.

Inter Cell Resistance

The CellCorder measures the resistance between two cell terminals that are electrically connected. The measurement consists of the connector resistance and the contact resistance at the points of connection to the cell terminals.

Auto Ranging

The CellCorder automatically selects the correct voltage range, load resistor, and time for a test.
Data Extraction and Analysis After all testing is completed; the CellCorder can be connected via the internal modem, supplied Smart Card reader or infra red port to a PC or hand-held device. The data extraction program analyses test data and displays results in a bar graph or tabulated format. A test report may be printed or saved to a file. This file can be exported in an ASCII or comma-delimited format to allow off-the-shelf programs or supplied Battery Analysis trending software to generate customized reports.
