The Cyclad Intelligent Load Unit is an advanced purely resistive load system with voltage, current and temperature sensors bonded to a fan cooled heatsink. This unit can dissipate the heat from very large loads without significantly impacting room temperature.
The unit performs a short duration, high current, battery test on DC battery banks. It records minimum voltages and other test parameters to determine the stability of the battery voltage, and provide a simple pass/fail test result.
If battery voltages fall below recommended minimums during testing, the batteries are failing. If the batteries fail a subsequent series of tests, replacement should be considered.
