Battery Bank Test Solutions by DV Power

DV Power LogoPortable Electronic DC Load: BLU Series

DV Power presents the BLU Series, a range of portable electronic DC loads delivering 16KW to 28KW of power. With an input voltage range of 5.25V to 500V and a maximum current absorption of 200A (120A for 125 VDC substation banks), these units stand out as the most powerful and lightweight DC loads available. The BLU Series can achieve even higher currents by integrating smart slave units, BXL. Weighing under 32lbs or 42lbs, these models are both powerful and highly portable. The DV Win software controls the units and archives results for initial bank acceptance and aging comparison.

  • Battery Bank Input Voltage Range: 5.25V to 500V
  • Maximum Current Absorption: 200A (120A for 125 VDC substation banks)
  • Expandable Current: Additional current with smart slave units BXL
  • Weight: Under 32lbs or 42lbs
  • Control and Monitoring: DV Win software

For more details, refer to the BLU200A brochure or the BLU360V brochure, which covers models with 10V to 500VDC inputs.

Cell-by-Cell Voltage Scanner: BVS Series

DV Power's BVS Series is designed for use with the DV Power load units or other market loads. It supports up to 127 cells and uses CAT data cables between modules. The BVS connects short fused wires with clips to battery cell terminals, providing comprehensive monitoring during discharge tests via PC software. This setup allows for easy identification of the weakest cells through histogram graphs during and after discharge. The BVS can also stop the test when a cell reaches a threshold voltage. It measures cell resistance and inter-cell resistance when operated with the BLU.

  • Maximum Cell Capacity: 127 cells
  • Monitoring: PC software with histogram graphs
  • Test Modes: Stop test at threshold voltage
  • Resistance Measurement: Cell and inter-cell resistance with BLU

Testing Note:

The combination of the BLU DC Load and BVS scanner provides a robust load capacity test system, meeting NERC requirements and offering exceptional troubleshooting capabilities. It is recommended to disconnect the battery bank from its usual application for several hours and recharge it before resuming typical operations. A substitute bank or a dual bank connection may be utilized during testing. NEW quad cell scanner which reduces cost by over 33% and simplifies scanning.
