Feature Points
  • The BCT-200J can perform a preventative maintenance test on the truck or tractor's electrical system to identify problems in a two-minute procedure. This feature will significantly cut down the preventative maintenance time on fleets.
  • The BCT-200J will test both the starter and the alternator showing the results of alternator amperage output, charging voltage, ripple amount and starter current draw. Diagnosing electrical issues fast and easy is why this product is a must have.
  • Will quickly and accurately test the vehicle's set of batteries, up to 4 at a time. It also tests single batteries with the same great speed and accuracy you have come to expect from any AutoMeter Test product.
  • Will perform voltage drop tests on the starting, charging, magnetic switch, and lift-gate and stinger cable circuits per TMC's RP129 recommended practices. Another advantage is that you can test wire integrity with simple easy to read menus.
  • Tests flooded and AGM batteries and starting/charging circuits.
  • Compatible with 24v charging and starting systems.
  • Includes battery bank test, which will test up to four batteries at one time.
  • Advanced Digital Pulse Load (DPL) technology - patented test process and algorithm allowing operators of this product to rapidly measure a battery’s ability to provide adequate cranking power necessary to start the vehicle.
  • V-Drop Technology – this unique AutoMeter feature utilizes a patented process to automate the measurement of voltage drop in the charging circuit during starter engagement to ensure vehicle systems are operating at peak performance.

What is the best device from your product to check how good condition (battery lifetime) of AMG EXIDE battery on marine lifeboat 100 Ampere / Hours approximately 1000 CCA?

Asked by: Oleg
Hi Oleg, thank you for the question. If you are testing just the batteries as described, the SB-300 would be our recommendation. It cannot determine battery lifetime, but will provide % charge, volts, and measured CCA.

After reading the pdf manual, I dont see where it says it can load test 24v batteries. It states it can test 24v charging systems but does not explicitly state it can load test a 24v battery.

Asked by: seand

Is it possible for this unit to display a loaded voltage reading when testing a single 12v battery?
