The BITE2 and BITE2P Battery Impedance Test Equipment determine the condition of lead-acid and nickel-cadmium cells up to 7000 Ah. An advanced feature set has been developed that includes Pass/Warning/Fail calculations based on a user entered baseline value, advanced printing functions. The case of the BITE2P consists of both the transmitter and a carrying case for all of the standard accessories and some of the optional accessories, in an all-in-one unit. The BITE2 and its accessories fit into a sturdy canvas case with a shoulder strap.

The instruments work by applying a test signal across the battery string while on-line, then calculates impedance based on simultaneous measurements of current and resulting voltage drop of each cell/jar. They also measure dc voltage and interconnection (strap) resistance to help determine the overall condition of the entire battery string's electrical path from terminal plate to terminal plate.

The BITE2 and BITE2P receiver stores the readings in its internal memory. These measurements, along with other maintenance data such as ambient and pilot cell temperatures and ac ripple current, assist in determining the overall condition of battery systems. Both have the ability to download to a PC for data interpretation and to PowerDB, Megger's battery database management software. Additionally, the BITE2P has a built-in printer to review the active test and also to leave a hard copy record at the site.
