Battery Maintenance Systems

Whether you are managing a fleet of radios or warehouse scanners, or ensuring that your medical equipment is always ready, a complete battery maintenance system is critical to your success. A complete battery maintenance system allows you to:
  • Prime batteries prior to use in your equipment
  • Test batteries to ensure they will perform when needed
  • Track batteries to optimize their use in your fleet and replace them only when necessary
  • Label batteries to allow users to know that that they have are using a good battery
Proper battery maintenance will result in:
  • Improved safety and reliability
  • Lower battery costs
  • Higher productivity
Battery Maintenance Systems featuring the C7x00 family of analyzers allow users to test, track, label, and maintain fleets of batteries to ensure their equipment is always ready to go and save money on unnecessary battery replacements.

Security code safeguards against tampering

The C7x00 Series offers password protection. Being able to lock the analyzer minimizes staff training and prevents unauthorized changes of critical settings. The analyzer offers three security levels.

Performs battery lifecycle tests

The Lifecycle test program automatically cycles a battery to the end-of-life, recording capacity, internal resistance, temperature and other parameters through PC-BatteryShop™ as the battery is being stressed. A counter indicates the number of charge/discharge cycles the battery can endure before the battery capacity drops to the preset target level. Varying the end-of-discharge voltage threshold enables different depth-of-discharge conditions.

Reverse Load Charge improves charge efficiency

A nickel-based battery combines oxygen and hydrogen more easily if the charge is applied in pulse form with a brief discharge pulse interspersed in between the pulses. The Reverse Load Charge feature of the C7000 Series uses the method to improve charge efficiency, reduce memory and increase battery life.

Adjustable Target Capacity sets battery pass/fail criteria

The Target Capacity allows customizing performance criteria. Increasing the threshold above 80% produces tighter tolerances; lower settings provide longer service life with less stringent performance standards. Adjustable Target Capacity Sets Battery Pass/Fail Criteria

Recondition restores nickel-based batteries

Capacity loss on nickel-based batteries is often reversible with a discharge cycle to 1V/cell (Exercise). In many cases, Exercise alone is not sufficient and Recondition is required. Recondition is a deep discharge that dissolves the crystalline formation or memory. The chart shows the capacity gain achieved on batteries with memory. A further improvement was possible on a new battery. Battery Capacity

Standby mode keeps batteries fresh

Nickel-based batteries should not sit in chargers for any length of time. This poses a problem if the batteries are needed for operational readiness. The Standby mode of the C7000 Series automatically cycles a battery every 30 days to prevent memory. The LCD displays the last four capacity readings while retaining the original reading as reference. Only one battery of a multi-analyzer system is put on discharge at any given time. Standby Mode


BatteryShop™ provides a simple, yet powerful PC-interface to control and monitor Cadex C7x00 Series battery analyzers.

BatterySHOP™ Software

Custom Battery Adapters

Custom-built SnapLock™ adapters allow easy interface with commercial packs. The adapters contain C-codes that configure the analyzer to the correct setting. Each adapter can be programmed with 10 C-codes to service different battery types. Cadex offers over 1,500 custom adapters. If your adapter is not listed on our Battery Adapter Catalog, please contact us. Custom Battery Adapters

RIGIDARM™ UNIVERSAL ADAPTER

The RigidArm™ simplifies connecting small (e.g. cellular phone) batteries. Spring-loaded arms meet the battery contacts from the top down and lockable mechanism allows quick and repetitive testing. The retractable floor holds the battery in vertical or horizontal position.
