Device manufacturers and design engineers are typically required to evaluate their products under a variety of battery conditions, including different capacity and internal resistance levels. In simulator mode, the BCS Series offers control over these conditions with configurable capacity, voltage, and resistance (IR) points to evaluate device behavior under various simulated battery conditions.
In charge mode, these instruments source power with configurable stop conditions. The output can be configured to provide electrical isolation from connected batteries preventing parasitic drain when charging is complete. In discharge mode, these instruments act as a load to sink power up to 150W. These two battery-function modes are useful for battery charge-discharge cycle testing or evaluating charger circuits under load.
This series also serves as a precision DC power supply with exceptional transient response times, high current readback resolution, and low ripple/noise characteristics due to the linear design.
