DYNAMIC CHARGE ACCEPTANCE

More Accurate Picture of True Battery Condition

Using the built in 300A (optional 500A) load, DCA-8000 mimics a start event and then charges the battery to verify the battery can support advanced vehicle system applications like start-stop. This enables DCA-8000 to more accurately judge true battery condition.

Combined with Conductance Profiling™, DCA-8000 ensures service readiness for emerging vehicle systems, battery types, and new points of battery failure.

A More Accurate Picture  of True Battery Condition

Most decisions are generated in two minutes or less.  The charge process is monitored and discontinued immediately if at any point in the diagnostic process a battery is determined to be unrecoverable due to physical faults, etc.

Special circumstances (cold or deeply discharged batteries, etc.) may require additional time for diagnostics.

STEP ONE – CONDUCTANCE  

Action: Measures a battery’s ability to crank the engine.

Time required: 5 seconds

STEP TWO – CONDUCTANCE PROFILING™

Action: Measures a battery’s ability to supply power over time

Time required: 55 seconds

STEP THREE – DYNAMIC CHARGE ACCEPTANCE

Action: Measures a battery’s ability to accept charge current

Time required: 60 seconds Total time elapsed: 2 minutes

STEP FOUR – FURTHER DIAGNOSTICS

Action: Load test, recovery charge and monitoring

Time required: 3 minutes

TOTAL ELAPSED TIME FOR DIAGNOSTICS

Average Time required: 5 minutes
