Midtronics DSS-5000 HD heavy duty battery tester

DSS-5000 HD

Heavy-Duty Battery & Electrical System Analyzer

DSS-5000 HD Heavy-Duty Battery Diagnostic Service System is designed specifically for heavy-duty commercial truck and fleet applications, addressing both preventative maintenance and battery warranty management.

  • Conductance Profiling technology loads the batteries to identify reserve capacity issues that may start the vehicle, but could fail to support vehicle accessories
  • 12- and 24-volt battery pack, starter, and alternator diagnostics
  • Supports RP 129, a Technology & Maintenance Council Recommended Practice for electrical system diagnostics
  • Preventative maintenance capabilities – reduce cost and time of road service, towing, and lost customer confidence
  • Promotes quick error-free testing with pre-programmed service apps that include test flows compliant with RP 129, pack test, and cable drop testing procedures
  • Saves testing time by allowing user to test the battery pack while still assembled in the vehicle.


  • Includes multimeter cable and load for voltage drop testing
  • Email or print test results on a networked printer
  • 3-meter field-replaceable heavy-duty test leads
  • Optional amp clamp and integrated printer
  • Three-piece design including a detachable controller with 5-inch full-color touchscreen display, tester pod, and charging dock

Conductance Profiling™

Combines our conductance algorithm with new proprietary technology to:

  • Identify batteries with poor reserve capacity that may start the truck, but could fail to support other vehicle accessories
  • Ensures service readiness for emerging vehicle systems and batteries with new points of battery failure

Analytics and Communication

  • For large fleets and OEMs, BMIS integration supports automated over-the-air software updates and analytical reporting
    • Capture and review battery testing data
    • Visibility into process compliance
    • Reporting on self-diagnostics to improve tool uptime
    • E-mail results via built-in Wi-Fi
Midtroincs DSS-5000 HD battery tester
Today’s vehicles have sophisticated starting and charging systems with multiple and various types of batteries. Performing tests on and servicing these systems can be a challenging task for the technicians and often requires assistance if the proper tool is not readily available.

The Midtronics DSS-5000 HD is the most advanced battery, starter, and alternator service tool that I have used. This tool allows the technician to quickly perform and analyze various battery, cable, and live starting and charging system circuit tests without assistance from peers. The test results are stored for technicians to review, print, or e-mail later for repair order and warranty documentation. This is a must-have tool for any technician maintaining the various types of light, medium, and heavy On Highway, Off Highway and Agricultural vehicles.
