Battery Testing & Development with iTest Battery – Battery Pack Test System

Battery Testing & Development are of strict importance, as concerns for the environmental, economic and political impact of conventional motor fuels has grown. This has resulted in an increased focus on the electrification of the transportation industry. Dramatic growth in the adoption and usage of hybrid electric vehicle technology will be seen over the next ten years, both in the United States and worldwide. Advanced batteries are the key technology enablers for the future of vehicle electrification. Though continuous improvement of the powertrain is underway, the main hurdle to widespread acceptance of electric vehicles is the price, performance and durability of the batteries. A&D’s iTest Battery is an important battery test system, which offers the user control and easy integration.

With batteries, manufacturing costs and lifespan are the major issues. Battery life or aging performance is affected by use and calendar time. Use at the extremes of charge is especially detrimental which, conflicts with good overall range and performance of the vehicle.

Understanding the challenges facing today’s battery testing facilities is essential in developing effective tools and control strategies. With the wide range of test equipment in use, communication between devices is difficult, creating a huge need for an integrated test system.

Current solutions often require multiple technicians to both run tests and define new ones. The test results are then potentially generated in a different format for each piece of test equipment, and time-consuming manual data crunching may be required to fully understand the test results. Above all, safety is a major concern, and test facilities require manned operation in case of faults that required manual shutdown of the test.

  • Significantly improves test throughput by providing immediate feedback of test results used as setpoints in the current test
  • Enables safe and secure 24/7 unattended operation when coupled with integrated lab management system
  • Ensures error-proof testing through minimal programming changes
  • Convenient offline simulation for test development verification
  • Quick and easy installation with pre-configured instrument and test cycle modules (system is typically fully operational in less than two days)
  • Fully integrated lab and data management systems
  • Open architecture for I/O hardware integration
  • 150+ existing interfaces to common third-party measurement instruments
  • Integrated reporting package provides reports at the test cell or remote location
  • Expandable with lab growth
  • Scalable Control and feedback based on system type
    • Cell application can be scaled up to control 64 total circuits per system
    • Pack application can be scaled up to control 2 total circuits per system
  • Control up to 4 different cycler manufactures equipment with one software
  • Control up to 4 different environmental chamber manufactures equipment with one software
    • Ability to share chamber control with another system
