SBS-2003: Digital Hydrometer and Tester

Specific gravity testing is easy and efficient with the SBS-2003. Simply insert the nozzle into the battery and depress the finger pump, which draws a few drops of sulfuric acid (H2SO4) through the tube. Within three seconds the measured refractive index is converted into a temperature compensated specific gravity reading and the specific gravity, temperature and cell count are displayed. After testing is completed, you can transfer the data to your computer via Bluetooth and download results into an Excel report.

Combining a light weight and durable design with easy maintenance, field-replaceable spare parts and a large data storage memory, the SBS-2003 is suitable for use with lead acid batteries.

The SBS-2003 has the added benefit of storing the results for future download via Bluetooth.
