AES innovation, unique to our chambers, is our built-in data collection platform, the AES X/Change, which uses cutting-edge technology. We leverage modern technologies to provide a secure platform employing the most efficient data collection system. We use popular open technologies including JSON, Restful API's, Python scripts, and more! Energy storage development and testing is a very popular use for our chambers today. Whether it be extending the life of coin-cell batteries that power our everyday lives, or large format batteries that drive our electric vehicles; there will always be a need for chambers to recreate the environment these batteries will be subjected to. Today, athletes wear products into walk-in chambers to test their performance in simulated competitive environments. The applications for AES environmental test chambers reach far and wide.
