Bosch provides automotive workshops with a battery tester suitable for quick and reliable testing of all common 6 and 12 volt starter batteries and featuring a good price-performance ratio. Test routines being easy on the battery quickly provide accurate and reliable measurement results. Using the integrated thermal printer, the test results can be printed for the customer or for record keeping at the workshop. Besides battery diagnoses and battery status display, workshop can also use the BAT 115 tester to check 12 and 24 volt starter and charging systems. It is suitable for passenger-car, LCV, motorcycle and recreational-craft batteries featuring a cold cranking current between 40 and 2 000 amperes.
The new Bosch battery tester can be used for lead-acid, EFB, gel, fleece and (flat or spiral-type) AGM batteries. For this purpose, BAT 115 meets several international test standards such as EN, EN2, DIN, SAE, JEC, JIS and MCA. The menu-guided operating principle with graphical LCD display and just three buttons allows intuitive tester operation and thus quick testing. So far, the system supports 25 different languages. For mobile workshop use and easy handling, the new 1 100-gram battery tester is equipped with a sturdy housing and a 1.8-meter test cable.
