Bitrode’s model RCN is a reserve capacity and discharge tester for automotive and industrial batteries. Each circuit operates from an isolated power supply, allowing modules of different ratings to be packaged in the same cabinet, and making it easy to remove a unit from a cabinet for use alone on the benchtop.
