In recent years the production of portable devices and the "start stop" system introduction in the automotive field led to increase R&D activity on this product range, enlarging the batteries offer to introduce in the market best performing products.
Tests based upon charge and discharge cycles are a key activity in laboratories involved in battery testing. The instruments used for such tests often subject batteries to demanding and lengthy test protocols and can normally be interfaced with various devices.
ACS climatic chambers play a primary role offering the possibility to conduct tests in controlled temperature and humidity conditions similar to those a battery may encounter over the course of its operating lifetime.
The Battery Test range has been optimized in accordance with the hazard levels defined by the EUCAR, with each hazard level associated with a series of accessories.
The end user should be familiar with the type of test to be performed and is responsible for selecting the appropriate hazard level.
Once the hazard level is established based on the EUCAR table, the equipment should be fitted with all the devices envisaged for the specific level and those below it to ensure full protection.
Moreover, in the case of the maximum hazard level (Level 7 - Explosion), it is necessary to make a specific estimation, since the proposed devices might not be sufficient for guaranteeing the safety level required.
