Hardware Features

Integrated temperature measurement

Allows the user to take the battery temperature with one device eliminating the need to carry multiple tools.

USB connection & storage compatible

Utilized for easy transfer of data and seamless tester updates via USB flash drives.         

Interchangeable Test Interfaces

Designed for Technician ease of use, change your interface from probes to clamps with a slight twist, lowering maintenance cost.

Integrated Lighted Test Interfaces

Lighted test interfaces for technician ease of use in dark areas where a good connection is a requirement.

On board battery pack

One battery pack supports six to eight hours of test time.

Module Add Ons

Activate the full capabilities of your Celltron Advantage

The Celltron Advantage comes complete with the capability to trend battery amp hours utilizing conductance technology.  Make your Celltron Advantage more powerful by adding enhanced functionality.

Integrated Site Trending

For quick, effective trend analysis, compare previous test results for a battery within the screen of your Celltron Advantage tester.

Guided Interface

Provides the option for a technician-driven site and system setup based on general site and battery parameters. These parameters will be used in battery State Of Heath (SOH) determination.
