ABOUT THIS INSTRUMENT:
The Megger Torkel860 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.
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.
The 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.
Together, Megger TORKEL and the TXL Extra Loads (not included) 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.
The external current measurement function enables the Torkel to measure the total current in an external path and base regulation on this measurement. A DC clamp-on ammeter (included) has to be used for this measurement. It can be applied at one of the battery terminals or at an inter-cell connector. The clamp-on ammeter must measure the total current, including that which passes through Torkel.
Hire Includes: Megger Torkel 860, Operating instructions, DC clamp-on CT, cable set & calibration certificate.
