High channel count rack-mountable battery test system with optional impedance analyser

The IviCycle is a multi-channel test system with a fixed number of channels per unit. The channels are divided over four modules each. It is possible to mix and match modules to get the desired number of 30mA,  200mA, 1A or 3A channels. 

The IviCycle unit can optionally be equipped with FRA/EIS in such a way that each channel has its own integrated FRA/EIS for parallel impedance testing (it is not multiplexed). 

The IviCycle has an integrated DataSecure that stores all data for each channel independent of the PC to ensure that in the event of communication loss or computer crash, the measurement will continue and measurement data is never lost. 

This system stability makes the IviCycle perfect for high throughput long term testing applications.
