Carefully selected materials and configuration are so unique that the combination is patent pending.  The system allows for more batteries under test while maintaining safety and increased uniformity.  A custom engineered epoxy shelf allows for a flat surface, distributed airflow, and optimum configuration in the case of an event or complete failure. The mix of materials and configuration used often eliminates or significantly reduces propagation during an event. 

ATP removes all of your wiring and cabling headaches with a unique cable management system that collects, organizes, and tucks all the wires and cables neatly under each shelf keeping them safely hidden and out of the way.

Drastically Change The Way You Test Batteries

The patent-pending, modular, fixture creates a system that is easy to set up and modify for different types of batteries and testing.  Different Battery Interface Boards (BIB) are available for coin, pouch, prismatic, cylindrical, and pack cell types. The ATP system can be easily changed from one style to another or support multiple styles within one chamber.


ATP drastically reduces the time required to set up test environments. The platform allows for easy-access sliding shelves, simplified plug-and-play wiring connections that are clearly labeled for tracking the channels from the device under test through your environmental test chamber to your battery cycling equipment.  So you no longer need to sort through massive entanglements to ensure you're collecting the correct channel data.

Severity Level Description Effects
0 No effect No effect. No loss of functionality 
1 Reversible Loss of Function No defect; no leakage; no venting; fire, or flame; no rupture; no explosion; no exothermic reaction or thermal runaway.  Cell reversibility damaged. Repair of protection device needed
2 Irreversible Defect/Damage No leakage; no venting, fire, or flame; no rupture; no explosion; no exothermic reaction or thermal runaway. Cell irreversibly damaged. Repair needed
3 Leakage Δ mass <50%

No venting, fire, or flame*; no rupture; no explosion. Weight loss <50% of electrolyte weight (electrolyte = solvent + salt)

4 Venting Δ mass >=50% No fire or flame*; no rupture; no explosion. Weight loss ≥50% of electrolyte weight (electrolyte = solvent + salt)
5 Fire or Flame No rupture; no explosion (i.e., no flying parts)
6 Rupture No explosion, but flying parts of the active mass
7 Explosion Explosion (i.e., disintegration of the cell)
