Speedy Diagnosis of Lead-Acid Batteries in as Fast as 2 Seconds
BATTERY TESTER BT3554
Model No. (Order Code)
|BT3554-01||Built in Bluetooth® Smart|
Note: Note (1) The thresholds for determining the pass/fail condition of a battery depends on the specifications and standards of the battery manufacturer, battery type, capacity, etc. It is important and necessary to always conduct battery testing against the internal resistance and terminal voltage of a new or reference battery. Note (2) In some cases, it may be difficult to determine the deterioration state of traditional open type (liquid) lead-acid or alkaline batteries which demonstrate smaller changes in internal resistance than sealed lead acid batteries.
Hioki portable battery testers support the maintenance of UPS and storage batteries critical to the life support of all businesses. The BT3554 battery internal resistance tester sets the standard for assessing the deterioration and remaining life of lead-acid batteries by giving a complete diagnosis via battery resistance testing. The BT3554-01 is built-in with Bluetooth® wireless technology for managing data on mobile devices.

How to use Battery Testers: Observing Measurement Results Captured Wirelessly on a Mobile Device
Measured values captured by the Hioki BT3554 Battery Tester can be displayed and saved onto a mobile device wirelessly. The results can also be used to create automatic reports. Simply install the free GENNECT Cross app onto your mobile device and connect to the Hioki BT3554. Reports created on your mobile device can even be e-mailed to the office to further increase work efficiency. Data uploaded by the Gennect Cross app can also be loaded into a PC to view the historical state of the specified battery as a graph.
Bluetooth wireless technology is available in North America, the EU, Japan and other countries. For an updated list of supported countries, please go to www.hioki.com.
Generating comparative judgments based on a lead-acid battery’s internal resistance and voltage
By using its comparator function to simultaneously measure the internal resistance and voltage of a lead-acid, nickel-cadmium, or nickel-hydride battery, the BT3554 can generate comparative judgments quantifying degradation of the cell based on user-specified threshold values.
Saving data easily just by placing the leads in contact with a battery’s terminals
The BT3554’s auto-hold function automatically holds measured values once they stabilize. The instrument’s auto-memory function, which automatically stores measured values resulting from the auto-hold function in its internal memory, further streamlines work tasks.
Creating reports in the field with a dedicated app
The BT3554-01 features Bluetooth® wireless technology. Measurement data loaded onto a tablet or smartphone can be viewed using templates and graphed to allow assessment of data by the cubicle (up to 500 data points). In addition, the app makes it possible to instantaneously create reports while in the field.
