Take seconds to receive accurate Ampere hour (Ah) capacity results of the most common lead acid battery types.
The ACT 612 Intelligent Battery Tester is designed for testing 6V and 12V standby SLA, cyclic GEL and car FLOODED batteries. Simple in operation, the ACT 612 simulates a full 20 hour (C20) discharge test in seconds and displays the DC Voltage results and Ah capacity available.
Use the Calibration Control to select either standby SLA, cyclic GEL and car FLOODED battery types prior to testing. The ACT 612 will test 6V battery models between 1.2Ah and 10Ah, and 12V battery models between 1.2Ah and 100Ah.
Once connected – ensuring a tight connection to clean battery terminals – the ACT 612 automatically displays the DC Voltage available followed by the Ah capacity reading. Results are displayed within seconds.
Battery manufacturers recommend to recharge or replace a battery when its rated Ah capacity falls below 65%. By giving a clear and accurate reading of a battery’s Ah capacity available, the ACT 612 makes it easy to identify replacements quickly. A quick look up table shows common battery sizes and at what Ah capacity rate they should be recharged or replaced.
This feature enables the unit to be calibrated to test various lead acid battery technologies or to specific brands of batteries.
The ACT 612 uses advanced pulse load technology to analyze Ah capacity, based on the battery’s temperature and state of charge. This method is significantly more accurate than measuring voltage and internal resistance and does not deplete the battery unlike a conventional battery load tester.
