SC-508

BenchtopRack and Stack

Benchtop Stackable icon High Performance icon

The SC-508, also known as the Super 508, is the most powerful temperature-only benchtop test chamber in the world. Designed and engineered to work seamlessly with ATPHEAVY, a battery fixture that can test 8 batteries up to 1000 amps per channel, the Super 508 can outperform any standard benchtop-style test chamber while still allowing safe and easy access into your workspace. The SC series comes in three models, SC-508, SC-508-ATP optimized for battery testing, and SC-508-SAFE optimized to AES SAFE battery testing safety standards.  

If you are concerned about losing your lab counter space, this test chamber has an optional floor stand for one chamber, or get double the test workspace when you stack two SC test chambers in the same footprint.

STRUCTURE.  The internal workspace is lined with type 304 stainless steel for a vapor-tight internal construction. Two specialized ports allow for cable patches to feed through the back of the test chamber workspace and easily connect to your battery cycler test equipment.

The exterior has a durable powder-coat finish over heavy-gauge steel for a long-lasting clean look. Between the two layers is highly efficient, low k-factor, thermal insulation. This chamber is built to last for many years.

CIRCULATION SYSTEM.  Air circulation is crucial for environmental testing. The SC and SCH series has an increased air flow with two 1/3 horsepower motors and blower wheels with adjustable speed. This optimizes temperature conditions within the workspace for the ATPHEAVY battery fixture. 

HEATING SYSTEM.  SC test chambers feature heating systems equipped with temperature limited sheath heaters to maximize safety and performance for reliable and accurate temperature control within ±0.5°C.

COOLING SYSTEM.  The cooling system in the SC and SCH series consists of a self-contained mechanical refrigeration system with a single stage configuration, and a 3.5 HP scroll compressor. An optional water-cooled condenser is available.  

Add boost cooling with liquid LN2 or CO2 for even faster pull-down rates. It's a great option for stress tests that require rapid cooling.  

Even without boost cooling, AES’ standard refrigeration systems have the fastest standard change rates of any environmental test chamber manufacturer. See Basic Specifications tab below. 

INSTRUMENTATION. SC-508 Test Chamber incorporates AESONE CONNECT  creating a robust connected device giving you a standard and uniform interface that makes operation easier. Learn more in the Instrumentation Tab below.
