Lead-Acid Batteries Training System (8010-4)

The Lead-Acid Batteries Training System introduces students to the operation of lead-acid batteries and covers voltage regulation, internal resistance, capacity, depth of discharge, and cycle life of lead-acid batteries. Hands-on experiments cover both the discharge characteristics and the most popular charging methods of lead-acid batteries. The Lead-Acid Batteries Training System equipment includes the Lead-Acid Batteries, Model 8801, and the Four-Quadrant Dynamometer/Power Supply, Model 8960-2. The Four-Quadrant Dynamometer / Power Supply is a multifunctional module that is used in the Lead-Acid Batteries course to charge and discharge the batteries. Its operation is controlled by the LVDAC-EMS software, which also provides the instrumentation required to measure, collect, and record the experimental data.

Features & Benefits

  • The training system teaches the principles of lead-acid battery operation during both charge and discharge.
  • The course curriculum of the Electric Power Technology Training Program is highly flexible and allows a multitude of different customized training solutions.
  • The courseware includes student manuals and instructor guides with all the theory required to perform the hands-on experiments.
  • All workstations, modules, and components are very sturdy to ensure a prolonged service life in a demanding environment such as a training laboratory.
  • The modular design approach of the training equipment allows a large variety of courses to be performed using a small number of modules, without unnecessary duplication of equipment.
  • All electrical components can be interconnected without electric shock hazard since all live parts of the connection leads are concealed and insulated.
  • All electrical symbols representing the components used in a laboratory exercise are clearly silk-screened on the front panel of the modules.
  • The training system includes a highly versatile USB peripheral:
    • Four-Quadrant Dynamometer/Power Supply, Model 8960-2. This module is used as a dc power source and a battery charger/discharger with a large variety of configurable parameters. It can also be used as an overnight battery float charger.
  • Firmware upgrades for the Four-Quadrant Dynamometer/Power Supply are available for download free of charge on the Festo Didactic website.
