Testing the functionality and performance of forklift battery chargers has always been a problematic task for service technicians. In order to test the basic functionality of a charger, at least one real battery must be available. This may be a problem if the techincian has to test chargers while all the forklifts are in service.
Moreover, using a battery it's impossible to test the complete charging curve of the charger rapidly, and it's problematic to adjust the charger settings and verify all the functionalities under different operating conditions.
This unit is an electronic load, designed to test battery chargers of any type, voltage and power. This unique equipment simulates the behaviour of a battery during the charge process, and it gives to the technician the opportunity to perform complete tests safely, rapidly and accurately.
This device eliminates the need of connecting a battery to the charger to be tested; it's very simple and flexible. Moreover, it can be used discharge batteries and for other purposes.
The front panel of the unitcontains these devices:
This is the typical sequence of operation, when using the unit to test a charger.
The user sets the voltage of the battery to be simulated, using the apposite knob and potentiometer, while the digital display shows the actual value. A separate potentiometer is available to set the maximum current that the unit will absorb.
The user connects the charger to be tested to the input of the unit. The charger control board will detect that a battery has been connected and will start the charge process;
