Exploring Battery Reliability Test System

Battery Reliability Test System

Chroma 17010

Chroma’s Battery & Reliability Test System is a high-precision system designed specifically for testing lithium-ion battery (LIB) cells, electric double-layer capacitors (EDLCs), and lithium-ion capacitors (LICs).

Output and Measurement

Up to ±0.015% of full scale

Current Response

Up to 100µS

Sampling Rate

Up to 10mS

Chroma 17010 system provides two design architecture types. The linear circuit series produce low output noise and high measurement accuracy, suitable for reliability evaluation of small and medium-sized energy storage components in development. The regenerative AC/DC bi-directional series with power saving and low heat generating features fit standard product life evaluation as well as medium and large-sized energy storage components or power battery cell testing.

High-precision & Multiple Current Range Design

Quick switching of current ranges: Chroma 17010 series provide multiple current outputs and measurement range switching, fitting test plans with both large and small currents. At the start of a test step, the system will detect the output current and then automatically and quickly switch to the appropriate current range. This improves the test accuracy and resolution for highly accurate test data.

Automatic range switching under constant voltage mode: Chroma 17010 linear circuit models support automatic switching of the current range in the constant voltage test mode, without any output interruption. This is perfect for applications such as float charging or potential regulation, which require long-term and highly stable testing of extremely small current output.

High-speed Sampling Technology

Chroma 17010 uses high-speed voltage and current sampling with double integration of computing to capture transient changes in the test without distortion. The advanced test system provides more accurate capacity calculations to solve the issue that general battery test equipment only use the report sampling speed to record key data, causing large cumulative errors.

• Hardware internal voltage/current sampling rate: 1mS
• Report single point transient sampling rate: 1mS
• Report sampling rate: 10mS

Chroma 17010 system provides three safety mechanisms: software/hardware detection, equipment abnormality monitoring, and optional independent relay hardware detection to ensure the safety of LIB cells tests.
