Cadex C8000 has been very useful in carrying out our research. It is accurate, programmable, versatile and user friendly. Also, data generated from it can be easily exported to other spreadsheet applications for further analysis. Moreover, Cadex customer service is impressive as inquiries are promptly responded to.
The C8000 is easy to setup because what we need to do is to plug in, then start to test. The design of BatteryLab is friendly, easy to operate, and allows us to read graphic results in real time. I strongly recommend C8000 to universities for education and research.
We use the C8000 to auto-test larger SLA batteries generally in the 26Ahr to 100Ahr range for fire safety systems. We have also used it for special custom tests that were requested by our engineering department where we were testing a large SLA for varying loads at different consecutive time intervals

We typically make either 12 cell or 24 cell battery packs with 2/3AF 700mA cells… they are designed for sub orbital rocketry applications. We do value it as a time saver and data acquisition unit. It’s a big step up from having to cycle manually as we were doing.

We have nothing but good things to say about the C8000. We are probably approaching 2,000 battery tests (at an average of >16 hours per test) over the past couple of years. We pretty much run the units 24/7. None of our production units ship without a 100% test and review of battery performance. The database and simple search functions of the BatteryLab program are well utilized as well.

Our main use for the C8000 is cycle testing and also testing battery capacity of many vendors and competitive products. Battery vendors will label a battery with any capacity you tell them to put on the battery pack. We tested several batteries from several vendors to find the best performance ones. We did testing over temperature in a temperature chamber and also did life cycle tests of the batteries. We have been using the C8000 for testing many different battery packs from several vendors. The C8000 was extremely easy to setup and start testing batteries in minutes.
Our C8000 machine is being used almost everyday in our Quality Inspection Lab. When we were asked by one of our customers if we could suggest any good cell testing machine, we said C8000 would be very good choice.
