ATP an all-inclusive test system fits with new or existing battery cyclers. Available for pouch, prismatic, coin, cylindrical, and pack cells
Flexible battery test fixtures for your existing test chamber choose the quantity, type, and connector for easy mix or swap and test. Available for pouch, prismatic, coin, cylindrical, and pack cells
ATPPRIME 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.
With ATP Battery Testing, 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Carefully selected materials and configuration are unique and patent pending. The system allows for more batteries under test while maintaining safety and increased uniformity.
