SBS-2415S: Battery Capacity Tester

The only way to know if your stationary batteries will perform to specification is to test them regularly.

NERC standard PRC-005-2 necessitates that valve regulated lead acid (VRLA) batteries every three (3) years and vented lead acid and nickel cadmium (NiCd) systems be discharge tested every six (6) years.

IEEE recommended to load test stationary flooded/vented lead acid and NiCd stationary batteries every five (5 )years and VRLA batteries every 12–18 months.

The SBS-2415S constant current load banks is an inexpensive way to achieve easy and accurate IEEE450 (vented lead acid), IEEE1106 (NiCd) and IEEE1188 (VRLA) load tests.

These units are very easy and simple to set up. They put into view the voltage, current and Ah removed from the string while testing is being done. Since this is an unvarying current load bank, there is no need to adjust the current during the test.

These load banks come standard with built-in protection and varying adjustable stop points to make sure that the batteries are in no way broken because of over-discharge.

Built-in Protection

  • High temperature shutdown
  • High voltage shutdown
  • Audible alarm
  • Warning on LCD screen
  • Over load protection


  • Loads of unit options that has extensive voltage and current range
  • Automatically discharges batteries without the risk of over-discharging
  • Incessantly holds the current set throughout the test
  • LCD screen displays real time voltage, discharge current and capacity/Ah removed
  • Test parameters are adjustable during test without stopping test
    • End system voltage
    • Discharge time
    • Discharge capacity (Ah)
  • Units can be slaved with the SBS-8400 and/or other load banks to increase amp draw

3 Adjustable Stop Points

  • End system voltage
  • Discharge time
  • Discharge capacity (Ah)
