Description
Application example
Batteries in power plants and transformer substations must provide the equipment they serve with standby power in the event of
a power failure. Unfortunately, however, the capacity of such batteries can drop significantly for a number of reasons before their
calculated life expectancy is reached. This is why it is so important
to check batteries at regular intervals, and the only reliable way of
measuring battery capacity is to conduct a discharge test.
Testing can be carried out without disconnecting the battery from
the equipment it serves. Via a DC clamp-on ammeter, TORKEL
measures total battery current while regulating it at a constant
level.
TORKEL™ 840 - UTILITY is used for battery systems ranging
from 12 to 250 V – often encountered in switchgear and similar
equipment. Discharging can take place at up to 110 A, and if
higher current is needed, two or more TORKEL 840 units or extra
load units, TXL, can be linked together. Tests can be conducted
at constant current, constant power, constant resistance or in accordance with a pre-selected load profile.
TORKEL 860 - MULTI is designed primarily for people who travel from place to place to maintain battery systems having different
voltages. It features excellent discharging capacity plus a broad
voltage range and outstanding portability – a unique combination.
TORKEL 860 is used for systems ranging from 12 to 480 V,
and discharging can proceed at up to 110 A. If higher current is
desired, two or more TORKEL 860 units or extra load units, TXL,
can be linked together. Discharging can take place at constant current, constant power, constant resistance or in accordance with a
pre-selected load profile.
The TORKEL is connected to battery, the current and the voltage
alarm level are set. After starting the discharge TORKEL keeps
the current constant at the preset level. When the voltage drops
to a level slightly above the final voltage, TORKEL issues an
alarm. If the voltage drops so low that there is a risk for deep
discharging the battery, TORKEL shuts down the test. The total
voltage curve and the readings taken at the end of the test are
stored in TORKEL Later, using the TORKEL Win program, you
can transfer these readings to your computer for storage, printout
or export. If your PC is connected to TORKEL during the test,
TORKEL Win builds up a voltage curve on the screen in real time
and displays the current, voltage and capacity readings. You can
also control the test using TORKEL Win.

Application examples with TORKEL/TXL systems
TORKEL and TXL can be combined into systems to match up
for different battery capacities. Here are two examples, you can
find more in the section Battery Testing Accessories.
These resistive extra loads do not perform any regulating functions. They are designed for use together with TORKEL Battery
Load Units. Their purpose is to provide higher load currents
for use in constant current or constant power tests. Together,
TORKEL and the TXL Extra Loads form a system that can
discharge batteries with currents of up to several kA. TXL Extra
Loads are connected directly to the battery, and TORKEL measures the total current using a clamp-on ammeter.
TXL Extra Loads are shut down automatically when TORKEL is
stopped.
