Chroma 17010 Battery Reliability Test System is a high-precision system designed specifically for testing lithium-ion battery (LIB) cells, electric double-layer capacitors (EDLCs), and lithium-ion capacitors (LICs). The test equipment is suitable for product development and quality control by providing characteristic research, cycle life testing, product screening, and quality assessment.
Chroma 17010 system provides two design architecture types. The linear circuit series produces low output noise and high measurement accuracy, suitable for reliability evaluation of small and medium-sized energy storage components in development. The regenerative AC/DC bi-directional series with power saving and low heat generating features fit standard product life evaluation as well as medium and large-sized energy storage components or power battery cell testing.
The exclusive Battery Lab Expert (Battery LEx) software platform helps users to quickly reference previous sub-recipes or add new sub-recipes through a multi-level recipe structure for efficient test plan editing. The independent DUT data management function can share different DUT recipes.
Battery LEx combines both CC, CC-CV, CP, CP-CV, CV, and CR test steps, as well as C-rate, OCV-SOC, Q%, waveform simulation, and chamber control modes. This is compliant with USABC, IEC, and GB/T international test standards and fits various test applications. Tests are executed in groups, so that users can quickly obtain each groups test status and perform a variety of controls during testing, including step jumps, resume, reserved pause/start, etc.
Chroma 17010 system can integrate a high precision and multi-functional data logger to measure temperature, voltage, and pressure in real time. The return values can serve as cut-off or protection conditions. Users can also integrate renowned environmental chambers to control the temperature and humidity. While testing, the software will check for consistencies between channel groups and issue environmental control commands for convenient operation.
Chroma 17010 system provides three safety mechanisms: software/hardware detection, equipment abnormality monitoring, and optional independent relay hardware detection to ensure the safety of LIB cells tests.
