Vencon Technologies UBA5-60V battery analyzer up to 60V nominal
The UBA5-60V has a maximum input of 60V can analyze high voltage battery packs, as follows:
|Chemistry||Battery Rated Voltage||Number of cells|
|Lithium Ion or Polymer||51.8V||14|
|Lead Acid or Gel Cell||48V||24|
|NiCd or NiMH||43.2||36|
It comes a small power supply (120VAC or 220VAC input) that powers the UBA5's internal circuitry. The maximum charge current is 2A per channel (up to the charge power supply's limit) and the maximum load is 2.4A per channel with a 45W limit per channel.
30V and Up
These extended voltage UBA5s are a customized version of our regular UBA5s where the battery inputs have their maximum voltage extended and a separate input is provided for a charge power supply.
The charge power supply, which we don't supply, needs to be of sufficient voltage and current to charge your batteries. The UBA5 will regulate the charge current.
The UBA5 battery analyzer tests, conditions, and charges batteries and then generates a test report showing the condition of the battery.
If you are already a battery expert you'll be pleased to know that the UBA5 has enough features for even the most demanding battery test applications. With its graphical programming interface you can easily design a battery test to do exactly what you want. You can specify the charge method (constant current or constant voltage with peak, timed, or temperature termination) and the charge and discharge currents. You can even use conditional loops in the test. All voltage, current and temperature readings are stored in a standard text results file.
The UBA5's power lies it its ability to leverage the power of your PC - it has neither display nor keyboard. We keep the UBA5 simple and put the intelligence into the S/W on your PC where it belongs. The UBA5 was designed by our president Marc A. Venis, a professional engineer with a Masters degree in Electrical Engineering and over 25 years of experience in the battery industry.
- Works with all battery chemistries (NiCd, NiMH, SLA, lead acid, lithium ion, lithium polymer and primary batteries).
- Fully programmable: you can set all charge and discharge currents, voltage settings, and charge algorithms.
- Includes pro version of the award winning UBA Console, easy to use and powerful software that allows you to graphically design your battery analysis routines and can simultaneously control over 100 UBA5s from one PC.
- Can run one test cycle to check capacity or thousands to test battery life.
- Comes with two channels that can each analyze a battery or can be combined with each other or other UBA5s for unlimited charge and discharge current.
- Stores all results in industry standard text format that you can import into your favorite spreadsheet.
- Battery temperature sensor option: use ours, use yours or use your battery's built-in ensor.
- Two year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.
- Lead free/RoHS, FCC approval and CE Mark.

UBA Console Software
The UBA5 comes with UBA Console software. This software allows full control over the UBA5 enabling unprecedented flexibility in designing a battery analysis.
The anaysis results from a NiCd test is shown below. The battery was fully charged before the test. The battery was discharged 559mAh before it reached the cutoff voltage. Thus the battery is functioning at 93% rated capacity which is acceptable for a used NiCd battery.
Graphical Battery Analysis Routine
UBA Console includes advanced battery analysis design capability which uses a grapical based design environment. This allows you to design your battery analysis using charge and discharge modules and loops and subroutines. Or use the analysis routines that come with your UBA.
The analysis routine can be as simple as this NiMH Discharge and Charge routine:
Or as complicated as this lithium ion camera load simulation routine that simulates the load that a camera battery will experience taking 200 pictures and then being recharged. This charge/discharge cycle is reapeated until the battery can no longer provide the power for the 200 pictures. This routine consists of this main routine:
and this subroutine:
You require a PC running Microsoft Windows (95 or later) with at least 20Meg free hard drive space and a free serial or USB port.
For a single UBA5 a PC with at least a 486 processor and 8M memory is required.
For more than one UBA5, we recommend at least a PII 150MHz 32MB with 800 x 600 display.
For 10 or more UBA5s we recommend a more recent PC with Win2000, XP, Vista, or Windows 7 (32 or 64bit).
The software will also run under Linux using Wine
