The BDL is a stand-alone system designed to continuously monitor one or more battery banks. Multiple units can be easily interconnected for monitoring a practically unlimited number of batteries.
On detecting a discharge, the BDL will automatically log battery voltages and currents for the duration of the discharge / recharge cycle and print an analysis report. The report lists any out-of-tolerance batteries in user-definable deviation bands (typically: 2%, 5%, 8%, 10% and 20%).
Logging can also be performed at user-programmable intervals, automatically in response to an out-of-tolerance condition, or manually via a pushbutton on the BDLís front panel.
The BDL is capable of scanning around 1000 batteries and storing up to 4000 sets of out-of-tolerance data. Battery data can also be logged and displayed locally on a personal computer or transmitted via modem to Thyconís service computer for further analysis.
Connect to your LAN via the TCP / IP 10 BaseT connector and monitor and download data from the BDL to any PC connected to your network. Then use your browser to view data. No propriatry software is required to view and or remotely operate the BDL.
Dual source power supply capability ensures that when a single BDL is shared between operation is no longer limited to a specific supply being available for correct operation. Power as dual or single 240 V AC, 110 V DV, 50 V DC or 24 V DC are available.
BDL installation is inexpensive and generally does not require disconnection of the batteries. Configuration changes can be made quickly and easily with the aid of a personal computer.
BDL settings and operating parameters such as bank names, number of batteries per bank, scanning intervals and deviation bands are all user-definable.
