Battery Data Logging Kits
Model # BDL-Series
Eagle Eye's BDL-Series Battery Data Logging Kits are designed for battery data logging of cell voltage, string voltage, DC current, and ambient temperature of battery systems under discharge or recharge. The modular design of the BDL-Series allows the units to be customized for use on wide variety of battery systems ranging from 12V to 800V.
Each BDL-Series kit consists of Data Acquisition Cases (DAC’s) which are used to gather measurement data from the battery system. A “String DAC” is used to measure string voltage, DC current (with fitted CT clamp), and ambient temperature. Cell DAC’s are used to measure the voltage of each individual battery cell – one Cell DAC connects to (4) or (12) battery cells, depending on the cell voltage. DAC’s communicate wirelessly to a COM Terminal that connects directly to the PC. Included DataView Management Software allows real-time data analysis and exporting of data to Microsoft Excel.

How do the DACs function?
DACs are connected to the positive terminals of each cell by robust alligator clips. The clips connect to wiring harnesses which power the DACs. The DAC then wirelessly transfer the data to the COM Terminal.
What is the power requirement of the DAC and how much current do they draw?
DAC get their power from the batteries they are connected to. They require a minimum of 8V and use 30mA for operation.
Does the SLB-Series come with software?
Each BDL comes standard with DataView software. This software allows us to live monitor, view test data, and export reports to Microsoft Excel.
How many batteries does a DAC connect to?
Depending on the battery type either 4 or 12 batteries. DACs can connect 12 1.2V, 2V, and 4V cells. 4 cells can be connected for battery types 6V & 12V.
