About Conductance-Based Battery Testing

Conductance-based battery testing technology measures the battery‘s conductance, which is the ability to transmit electrical current. As a battery ages or experiences degradation, its conductance changes, reflecting alterations in the internal components and overall health. Conductance-based testing allows for quick and non-invasive evaluations, enabling technicians to assess the battery status without the need for time-consuming discharge-recharge cycles.

One significant advantage of conductance-based battery testing is its ability to detect potential issues before they escalate. By providing a real-time snapshot of a battery‘s condition, this technology facilitates proactive maintenance, minimising the risk of unexpected failures. Additionally, conductance-based testing is more reliable in assessing the true state of a battery, especially in situations where voltage readings may be misleading.

  • Conductance is not a measure of battery capacity; it is a measure of battery state of health
  • The relationship between a battery’s capacity and conductance
  • When a battery is at 60% conductance it is near end of life

As industries increasingly prioritise efficiency, safety, and sustainability, conductance-based battery testing emerges as a pivotal tool for optimising performance, extending battery life, and reducing overall operational costs. This innovative technology is proving to be a game-changer in ensuring the reliability of critical power systems across various sectors.

  • Conductance is a measurement of the plate surfaces available for chemical reaction to determine how much power the battery can supply.
  • The units for Conductance is MHOS (G), also known as Siemens (s)
  • As batteries age, their chemical efficiency declines equalling a loss of capacity
  • This loss of capacity is usually evaluated by a loss of measured conductance (it is not a one-to-one correlation)
  • Conductance testing is a quick, safe, accurate and easy way to determine a battery’s relative condition or state-of-health
  • High conductance is one indication of a healthy battery
  • Conductance declines as the battery fails
