Drastically Change the Way You Test Batteries

ATPSOLUTIONS makes your battery testing easy to set-up and modify for different types of cells and testing.  The universal connectors are available in Kelvin clips and power pole for quick insertion, removal, and switching between cell types.  You can test virtually any cell type: coin, cylindrical, prismatic, pouch, and pack cells.

Test Multiple Cell Types with the Same Fixture

With ATPSOLUTIONS, you can easily change from one style holder to another or support multiple styles within one chamber. 

ATPPRIME is a self-contained fixture that holds 48 cells organized over four shelves that fit into an environmental test chamber specially designed to maximize airflow and constant temperature conditions.

Easy Access

Because everything is preset and permanently wired, ATPPRIME drastically reduces the time required to set-up test environments. The fixture features four sliding shelves that fully-extend at least two inches beyond the enclosed workspace. The easy-access sliding shelves, keep you safe from exposure to high heat and dangerous chemicals.

Wiring remains safe as shelves move in and out as they easily extend and retract through an IGUS track allowing connections to remain intact. 

Accurate Readings

ATPPRIME fixtures have integrated Battery Interface Boards (BIB) to ensure that precise, strong charge and discharge data signals are transmitted from each cell to your battery cycler.

Every battery cell connects to a clearly labeled channel, and the labeling continues through wiring and to the battery cycler, making it next to impossible to make an error in data collection. With the IGUS track and consistent labeling, you can say good-bye to spaghetti cable headaches.

Specialized Test Surface

A custom engineered epoxy shelf ensures a flat surface, distributed airflow, and optimum configuration to minimize events or complete failure. The mix of materials used and the cell configuration often eliminates or significantly reduces propagation during an event. 

Full Solution

From your batteries to cell holders to fixtures and wiring to your specific battery cycler, AES will be with you every step of the way, including set-up and testing every cell connection to ensure success.

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)
