For your battery
Today, we still test batteries mainly for its capability to start the car. Though the battery is also used intensely to support all vehicle electrics. On top of that, modern systems like the start-stop system do not only use the battery. It’s inherent to the start-stop system that the engine shuts down and the battery is therefore no longer supported. Furthermore, modern batteries have to be able to accept brake energy and work with smart alternators. This is why, nowadays, we need to test whether batteries are capable to support such activities. When you don’t test a battery for its capability to perform these new tasks, you can expect the start-stop system to fail. In a later stage other car electrics start to fail and finally you won’t be able to start the car.
Midtronics continuously develops solutions to match changing vehicle and battery technology. This is why, battery maintenance is exclusively reliable with our technology.
So how does it work?
The new technology, for testing reserve capacity (Ah), which the battery uses to support the car electrics, is called Conductance ProfilingTM. In our labs we worked on a profile. A profile based on hundreds of batteries that were lying on the reserve capacity spectrum (GOOD – NOT GOOD). We use this profile to compare CP test results and predict the battery’s reserve capacity.
