ABC-170 Datasheet
AeroVironment’s ABC-170 is used to develop and test products that require additional sinking power. The ABC-170 was originally developed to test fuel cells in an energy efficient manner, by returning clean AC power back to the utility grid. AeroVironment’s customers now use this versatile machine to test batteries, hybrids and other electric vehicle (EV) and hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) applications that require higher discharging capability. All AV power cycling systems are equipped with a real-time clock on the system’s control board that enables measurement of Ah and kWh during cycling.
