C7200 Battery Analyzer (40 Watts)
The two-station Cadex C7200 suits smaller organizations and storefront operations; 40 watts of charge power at 4 amps per station ensures quick service of larger batteries. This cost-effective analyzer offers similar features to the larger C7400.
Part Number: 07-720-0100
C7400 Battery Analyzer (80 Watts)
With four-stations and 80 watts of charge power, the Cadex C7400 is most economical in terms of cost per station. The added stations increase throughput and improve flexibility in accommodating batteries that require immediate service.
Part Number: 07-740-0100
C7400ER Battery Analyzer (170 Watts)
The Cadex C7400ER is the most powerful of the C7000 Series battery analyzers. Six amps per station, service of 36 volt batteries and 170 watts of continuous power satisfies most service requirements.
Part Number: 07-740-1100
|The Cadex C7x00 Series battery analyzers are more than programmable power supplies to charge and discharge batteries; they assess the condition of a battery and provide intelligence to safely service them. Protected algorithms with redundant safety features identify a faulty battery and terminate the service with message when so needed.|
The green light on the charger does not reflect battery performance. “Ready” simply indicates that the battery is fully charged.
A battery should be replaced when the capacity drops to 70–80%. Most users are unaware of capacity fade until an unforeseen power loss occurs. Nor should a battery be replaced too soon. The Cadex C7x00 Series battery analyzer enables to keep batteries for their optimal life span.
|The C7x00 analyzer test batteries by a discharge/charge cycles or a rapid-test function. A full cycle is the most reliable method but it is not practical for large batteries. Rapid-testing is not available for all batteries.|

Security safeguards against tampering
|Password protection prevents unauthorized changes of settings. Level 1 allows minor changes and Level 2 inhibits most programming.|
Service ProgramsAutomated programs support all your battery needs and the 18 available service programs are grouped below into Basic, Advanced and Custom.
- Auto – Exercises the batteries and applies Recondition if the user-set target capacity cannot be reached
- Charge – Applies a fast charge only
- Prime – Prepares batteries for field use by repeated cycling until the maximum capacity is reached
- QuickSort™ – Sorts lithium-ion packs into Good, Low and Poor in 30 seconds
- Self-Discharge – Determines the rate at which a battery loses charge
- Life Cycle – Counts number of charge/discharge cycles before the battery capacity drops to selected target level
- Discharge Only – Discharges battery for storage; tests chargers
- Extended Prime – Applies a 16-hour trickle charge, followed by Prime. Prepares difficult to charge batteries
- OhmTest – Measures internal battery resistance in 6 seconds
- Runtime – Simulates field application with three adjustable load currents and time intervals
- Boost – Reactivates seemingly dead batteries that have been discharged too low
- QuickTest™ – Provides battery state-of-health in 3 minutes. Needs specific battery matrix
- Q-Learn – Provides initial QuickTest™ matrix by scanning a good battery. Service time is 3-5 minutes
- Learn – Improves QuickTest™ matrix by scanning batteries with different state-of-health status. Service time is 3-8 hours per battery
Custom programsFour separate Custom programs allow user-defined programs composed of charge, discharge, recondition, wait and repeats. The programs follow a different path if a certain condition occurs.
SoftwareNo system is complete without well-designed software. PC-BatteryShop™ enhances the Cadex C7x000 Series battery analyzers by being able to observe voltage, current and temperature in real-time graphics. Advance the Cadex analyzer into a true workhorse.

Maintaining fleet batteries
Useless Batteries made Valuable
Warranty batteries, and those that had been returned, no longer need to be discarded. Studies show that 90% of returned mobile phone batteries can be restored with Cadex battery analyzers. The QuickSort™ program provides a clear assessment of the battery condition in 30 seconds.
Battery testing has become a viable business model that earns money and saves the environment. For storefront service, visit our C5100.
Maintaining consistent quality in battery manufacturing
|With PC-BatteryShop™, the PC becomes the command center from which to enter parameters and program sequences. You can customize charge terminations, fine-tune the end-of-discharge thresholds, and observe voltage, current and temperature in real-time graphics on the PC monitor. Cadex analyzers will test batteries at a fraction of cost to competitive systems.|
