Connect to BTS9000

Before you get started, first of all, you are supposed to connect BTS9000 with your host computer, right? Let’s do it. The main window of the BTS9000 client software looks like the following picture, and there are some notes marked on the picture for your reference.

DCIR test operation in BTSDA

DCIR is a key parameter to the battery performance. To calculate DCIR, there should be 2 voltage values and 2 current values. DCIR or d.c. resistance is another key parameter to know a battery's quality ( self-discharge, power characteristic, state of health). DCIR test is usually brought out in short time. So tester's capability is critical to the testing result.

If you need to perform DCIR test with your batteries, Neware BTS4000 and BTS9000 are recommended for you.

Report generator in BTSDA

After you open a NDA file with BTSDA, then you can export the file to the format you want such as excel, pdf, txt. And you can generate and customize the report.

Right click in the data area or use the Office Excel icon on tool bar, this will pop up the Data Export dialogue.

For NiMH battery, there will be a voltage drop when battery gets fully charged.  This drop rates you can specify as a cut-off condition for the charge step. -△V is enabled only for CC charge step.

Problems in Estimating Battery Lifetimes

Determining battery lifetimes is beset with difficulties. Performance data are not generally available and costly to generate since large numbers of batteries must be tested to destruction. Furthermore, the required test period to verify the predictions is often greater than commercial decision lead time. Charge – discharge times for high capacity batteries are very long and using accelerated life testing to determine battery lifetime is most likely to lead to misleading results since battery life depends on temperature, rate and depth of discharge and the test conditions used to accelerate the occurrence of failures are quite likely to introduce new and unrepresentative failure modes.

Connect battery testers to computer

For mostly customers, before you are excited to start up a test, the 1st thing you are supposed to do is connect the tester to your computer, right? If you are new to our instruments, let's take you a quick tour on how to hook up the machine with your computer.

Low Dependence on PC

Comparing with some battery testing systems in the market, there's another amazing characteristic of Neware battery tests - low dependence on PC. When running the tests, our battery testing instruments don't depend on PC too much, even in some emergency your PC doen't work/shut down/restart/reset, our instruments still work well offline.

NDA to CSV or XLS conversion

Question: We have some Neware battery cyclers that we would like to integrate in our automated data processing system. Is there a way to automatically convert or save the cycling data to CSV (Excel) or text format? We need to have a way to get the data in a common format without human intervention. We know that data can be saved to Excel by going to the channel and exporting the data, but we need to have it done automatically, for example as Macro/script or in command line.

NiMH (Nickel-Metal Hydride) -- A good choice for a chargeable battery

  • Rechargeable
  • Works great in high-drain devices
  • Much larger capacity than NiCd's, which they've replaced.  Also not toxic like NiCd's.
  • Very common, so it's easy to find both batteries and chargers
