The number one failure I have found for energy inventions and claims is how they have measured the performance of their claim. This has been been a very big criticism of Robert Murray Smith for man years from many critics. We all know he is a rather clever man with a lot of useful information. He is often defensive when other engineers and scientist challenged his methodology used to measure his performance claims
Now there is light in the end of the tunnel. Enter the CADEX C8000 battery analyzer/tester I have one of these (or a slightly different model) on my shopping list for early next year. To his credit Robert Murray Smith is now using using one of these. Please see the videos.
This will go a long way to bring about credibility to his work.
Along with one of these battery testers, a great scope and the skills to use one is also essential. I see many people using volt and amp meters only to be fooled what is really going on.
Many thanks to Peter for this information
THE CADEX C8000 MAY WELL BE THE MOST COMPLETE BATTERY TESTING SYSTEM AVAILABLE.
The Cadex C8000 stands in a class by itself in flexibility and affordable price. Test SMBus batteries, monitor cell balance and capture load signatures to observe batteries with a unique load protocol. Add a thermal chamber, an external load bank, a safety circuit and alarm to form a command center and you begin realizing the unique qualities of this fine battery testing system.
- 4 independent digital drivers for maximum flexibility
- 1.2V – 36V, 10A charge and discharge per channel
- 100W per channel on charge; 80W on discharge
|Digital technology widens the test range, provides ultimate stability and gets more power into a compact housing than is possible with analog devices. Each channel can be programmed with up to 10A charge and discharge current each. Power handling is 100W per channel on charge and 80W on discharge, or 400W on charge and 320W on discharge on all four channels.|
The Cadex C8000 is more than a programmable power supply and load bank; the instrument has intelligence to assist in safe battery testing. Protected charge and discharge algorithms with redundant safety features identify a faulty battery and safely terminate the service should an anomaly occur. The system can be overridden for destructive tests.
SEPARATE BATTERY AND I/O PORTS
|Use the C8000 as command center to control these accessories:|
* See Specifications for listing
MONITORING INDIVIDUAL CELLS
|Four differential (floating) analog inputs enable voltage check of up to 5 cells; 4 direct and one by voltage extraction.|
EXTERNAL LOAD BANK
|For higher load currents on discharge, you can connect the C8000 to a designated external load bank, enabling loads of up to 2,400 watts and 48 volts. (Supported on one channel only).|
See Specifications for listing
DUAL POWER PORT CABLE
|The Dual Power Port Cable ties two channels together to double the current from 10A to up to 20A. Applicable on discharge only.|
SMART BATTERY TESTING
|The Cadex C8000 reads register settings of SMBus batteries to verify function and identify anomalies.|
