The Gaus High Rate Discharge Tester is particularly designed for testing the cranking performance (cold and warm cranking) of automotive batteries.

The PR600A24V contains one discharge circuit with integrated microcomputer interface. Central control by means of a host computer of the AT type with GBTS1.06 Software (Host Computer Type).

Guaranteed operation of the discharge circuit also in case of failure or interruption of the host computer by downloading the complete test program into the microcomputer interface, or in the case of mains power supply failure.

The PR600A24V with GBTS1.06 have been designed as an integrated system, combining power conversion, circuit control, computer control, data recording and data reporting. As a result, this system meets most battery testing needs: high reliability, complete functionality, accuracy, ease of data recording, troubleshooting, numerous data presentation formats, and easy maintenance. In this way it provides increased laboratory efficiency and accuracy.

Additional ratings and options are continually added to the product line. Furthermore, "GAUS StS" is also happy to work with customers to provide special customization options where needed.

Operating Simplicity

Test initiation and control are via the mouse or keyboard. After a program has been selected and the battery connected, simply depress the START key to initiate the test sequence. While discharging, the GBTS1.06 will display the status of the test and the test results in graphical or columnar form on the real time basis. It will show the mode of operation (ready, connect battery, running, stopped, paused, error...) the program number, the step number and the test parameters (amperes, volts, elapsed time...). The test may be stopped and restarted at any point in the discharge.
