BT3554 (Bluetooth® not installed)

Even Speedier Diagnosis of the Deterioration of
Lead-acid Batteriess

Hioki portable battery testers support the maintenance of UPS and storage
batteries critical to the life support of all businesses. The BT3554 battery
internal resistance tester sets the standard for assessing the deterioration
and remaining life of UPS and other lead-acid batteries by giving a complete
diagnosis via battery resistance testing. The specially designed L2020 Pin
Type Lead further improves testing efficiency with an L-shaped tip that lets
you reach deep into the battery racks to completely probe the terminals.

Note (1) The thresholds for determining the pass/fail
condition of a battery depends on the specifications
and standards of the battery manufacturer, battery type,
capacity, etc. It is important and necessary to always
conduct battery testing against the internal resistance
and terminal voltage of a new or reference battery.
Note (2) In some cases, it may be difficult to determine
the deterioration state of traditional open type (liquid)
lead-acid or alkaline batteries which demonstrate smaller
changes in internal resistance than sealed lead acid batteries.

Key Features

• Measure and save data in as fast as 2 seconds, a 60% improvement from the legacy 3554
• Instantaneously diagnose battery degradation (PASS, WARNING, FAIL) by measuring internal resistance and voltage
• Noise reduction technology improves noise resistance
• New protector delivers better ergonomic hold and durability in the field.
• Also available: BT3554 with Bluetooth® Wireless Technology

Get Results in as Fast as 2 Seconds

Simply touch the test leads to the battery terminals to easily capture battery condition data
with the Hioki BT3554 Battery Tester. Automatically save measurements results using the
auto-hold or auto-memory function in just 2 seconds, a 60% reduction from the legacy

How to use Battery Testers: Observing Measurement Results Captured Wirelessly on a Mobile Device

Measured values captured by the Hioki BT3554 Battery Tester can be displayed
and saved onto a mobile device wirelessly. The results can also be used to create
automatic reports. Simply install the free GENNECT Cross app onto your mobile
device and connect to the Hioki BT3554. Reports created on your mobile device can
even be e-mailed to the office to further increase work efficiency. Data uploaded
by the Gennect Cross app can also be loaded into a PC to view the historical
state of the specified battery as a graph.

Bluetooth wireless technology is available in North America, the EU, Japan and other
countries. For an updated list of supported countries, please go to

Generating comparative judgments based on a lead-acid battery’s internal resistance and voltage

By using its comparator function to simultaneously measure the internal
resistance and voltage of a lead-acid, nickel-cadmium, or nickel-hydride
battery, the BT3554 can generate comparative judgments quantifying
degradation of the cell based on user-specified threshold values.

Saving data easily just by placing the leads in contact with a battery’s terminals

The BT3554’s auto-hold function automatically holds measured values
once they stabilize. The instrument’s auto-memory function, which
automatically stores measured values resulting from the auto-hold
function in its internal memory, further streamlines work tasks.

Creating reports in the field with a dedicated app

The BT3554-01 features Bluetooth® wireless technology. Measurement
data loaded onto a tablet or smartphone can be viewed using templates
and graphed to allow assessment of data by the cubicle (up to 500
data points). In addition, the app makes it possible to instantaneously
create reports while in the field.
