Battery Testing Systems


big_image_1

A&D Technology battery test solutions are designed specifically for the development, optimization and validation of advanced hybrid batteries, including the battery system components. Based on iTest, our flagship data acquisition and control product, the open system includes proven drivers for seamless integration with best-in-class testing components, such as power process systems, air coolant systems, battery ECUs, chiller systems and environmental chambers. iTest triggers the measurement instruments and sub-systems to gather data to compile test results and generate standard test reports. Function, durability and performance tests are executed using standard iTest drivers.

The integrated battery test system makes your job easier by providing a single program methodology for all your testing needs, regardless of installed hardware or variations in batteries being tested.

The integrated system allows a wide range of battery cell capacities to be tested with the same software and a single test schedule.

The same test can be run on multiple cycling platforms and environmental chambers, with no programming changes.

A&D's fully integrated battery testing laboratory provides control of multiple models of Cyclers, Chambers, Chillers, and Data Acquisition systems.
