HRDT – High Rate Discharge Testing – Arbin Instruments

Test and Measurement

The Arbin HRDT series is a single channel system designed for high rate discharge applications such as SLI battery cranking tests (cold or warm) for any battery chemistry. Users may de-fine their own custom discharge profile for any large battery/capacitor testing application. Arbin’s software offers incredibly flexible control over test control parameters and conditions.

Arbin offers several different hardware technologies that can be utilized in the HRDT systems for discharge-only, or charge & discharge capability. Systems are heavily engineered so the most appropriate technology is used to meet each testing re-quirement without adding excess cost for features not needed.

Standard models have been created for common lead acid as well as lithium and other advanced chemistries of battery.
