Testing Batteries with 2mm Access Ports

Testing Batteries with 2mm Access Ports

Batteries can present an arc hazard due to their exposed terminals (posts). If a non-insulated tool should fall across these terminals the resulting arc flash can injure people in the vicinity as well as damage equipment. This is why insulated tools should be used when working on battery strings. This is also why some batteries have caps covering their posts. These caps are removed during testing.
