Catalog Description

Megger BITE3


The Megger BITE3 determines the health of lead-acid cells up to 2000 Ah by
taking measurements of the most important battery parameters.
The BITE3 measures cell impedance, an internal ohmic test, cell voltage,
intercell connection resistance and ripple current. The BITE3 measures float
current and the harmonic content of the ripple current. There is even a
built-in spectrum analyzer to show the harmonic content of the ripple current.

Determines health of lead-acid cells up
to 2000 Ah
On-line testing with Pass/Warning/Fail
Measures impedance, interconnection
resistance and cell voltage
Windows CE operating system with
32 MB of memory
Measures float and ripple currents
Includes ProActiv Database Management

The data given by the Bite3 let's the user determine maintenance needs such
Jumper out a cell or two
Clean and/or retighten intercell connectorstrends
Shorten the maintenance interval, etc.,
Evaluate float current and ripple current effects

Typical installations that can be tested using the BITE 3 include:

Electrical power generation plants
