42 is a robust, low cost, easy to use fast tester
for lead acid batteries. It's fully automatic 40 second
test sequence and rugged portable construction make it
ideally suited for field service, goods inward, and workshop
Intended to provide a supplement
to annual discharge testing of standby batteries and as
a rapid general tester, the unit checks both the state
of charge of the battery and then its ability to provide
an appropriate voltage under load in just 40 seconds.
Models are available covering
40Ah to 140Ah (other ranges to order). The operator only
needs to set the battery size on the ampere hour scale
and then depress the start push-button to begin the test
sequence, the rest is automatic.

only forty seconds to complete the test, means that regular

by testing each 12 volt 'block' or 'group of cells' separately.The
test result is displayed on a coloured LED readout at
the end of the test sequence.The unit is covered by a
comprehensive 12 month warranty.
for use by personnel with little or no battery testing
