FAQ for Battery Data Logger

FAQ for Battery Data Logger

Q: Why do I need battery data logger?
A: 1. In IEEE regulation including IEEE 450, IEEE1188 and IEEE 1106, quarterly to semi-annual inspection for voltage, current and temperature are necessary for stationary battery.

2. Compared to other ways of data logger, BDL-3926C is automatically recording battery info in the PC software. It is more convenient and time saving for stationary batteries and non-stationary batteries like forklift/motive power batteries.

Q: What are the main compositions of BDL-3926C and what are their functions?
A: There are two essential parts, the Cell DAC and String DAC. Cell DAC is for recording voltage of each cell, while String DAC is for recording of current, ambient temperature and string voltage.

Q: How many pieces of each part do I need?
A: For different battery systems, you will require different amount of Cell DAC. Each string will require only one String DAC.

Q: Can the Cell DAC and String DAC used separately?
A: Yes, they are working independently to each other. Both Cell DAC and String DAC measure and send data to PC software via a control terminal that is connected with PC. You could use them together or separately as per your need.

Q: Can I use the DAC together with load bank or other Kongter’s products?
A: The Cell DAC is commonly applied along with K-3980 battery load bank and K-3986 battery charger/discharger/activator. With their PC software, you could see more detailed info about batteries.

Q: What battery types does BDL-3926C support?
A:  Standard Cell DAC supports common cells including 1.2V, 2V, 6V and 12V cells. Customized cell types are available upon request. String DAC supports all battery types.

Q: How many batteries can I connect to with the battery data logger?
A: Maximally you could connect up to 256 cells in one String.

Q: Can I use the data logger for remote control or PC software only?
A: It is used in PC data recording only. If you need remote control, you could consider the BMS-3923 Battery Monitoring System.
