Looking for Fire Compliant Batteries & Battery Testers?

Concerned about your Battery or Battery Testing equipment product compliance?

At Valen, we understand the seriousness of product compliance within the fire industry. So we ensure the following products are backed by the necessary certifications and standards.

Constant Current Load Tester (CCOLT)

Battery Load Testing is mentioned in F2 BATTERY TEST in the AS1851.2012. The Constant Current Load Tester (CCOLT) Battery Tester from Valen is the preferred battery tester for testing in accordance to this Fire Standard.

The Constant Current Load Tester (CCOLT) is designed to test large batteries by applying a constant current load. Current drain, cut-off voltage and duration may be configured and the CCOLT will monitor the voltage and time elapsed during a test. The CCOLT will automatically disconnect the load once the selected cut-off voltage is reached. Tests may be downloaded via software for reporting and analysing purposes.
