What printer is compatible? Can the tester be connected via usb?

Asked by: Refta
Hi Refta, thank you for the question. The PR-12 is the compatible infrared printer. There is no USB connection on the BVA-200s tester. Here is a link to the printer: https://www.autometer.com/pr-12-infrared-external-printer.html

The tester is rated for AGM batteries rated between 100-1600 CCA or 10-265 AH. I just have Ah rated batteries. Is this model for Ah rated too?. User manual only show CCA data.

Asked by: eloso69
Thank you for your question. Yes, BVA-200s can use AH instead of CCA. When at the menu on the device, scroll down and select setup. In the setup menu there is an option to change the default battery rating. You can set this to be CCA, MCA, CA, or AH. These instructions are a little hidden in the owners manual and can be easily overlooked. They are on page 21 and the page format makes it look like they are setup instructions for the volt meter. A copy of the operator's manual can be found here: https://www.autometer.com/media/manual/2650-1516.pdf

we are having troubles with the CCA information that this Tester is providing. We have 100 of this Tester that we are using since 2010. Do we need to so any maintainace after so many years?

Asked by: john deere argentina
Thank you so much for contacting us. These testers are designed for very heavy, continuous usage over a long period of time in harsh shop environments. While there isn't a scheduled maintenance period on them, after 8 years of professional usage, it may be worthwhile to have our team inspect any units that seem to be malfunctioning. It's not uncommon for our testers to go significantly longer than that with little more than occasional test lead replacements. If you'd like to set up an inspection, please give our tech team a call at 815.895.8141 and we will help to facilitate that for you. Thank you!
