Robust Multi-Channel Battery Testing with Optional Impedance Analysis

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

The IviCycle is a multi-channel test system, featuring a flexible configuration with a fixed number of channels per unit. Channels are distributed across four modules, allowing you to mix and match modules to achieve the desired number of 30mA, 200mA, 1A, or 3A channels according to your specific testing requirements.

Advanced Impedance Testing Capabilities

Optionally, each IviCycle unit can be equipped with Frequency Response Analyzer/Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (FRA/EIS), enabling parallel impedance testing on each channel. This unique feature is not multiplexed, ensuring that each channel has its own integrated FRA/EIS for comprehensive impedance analysis.

Integrated uDataSecure for Reliable Data Storage

The IviCycle comes with an integrated uDataSecure module, which independently stores all data for each channel, regardless of PC connectivity. This ensures that measurements continue uninterrupted, and data is preserved in the event of communication loss or computer malfunction. This system stability is particularly valuable for high throughput and long-term testing applications.

The IviCycle represents a significant advancement in battery testing technology, providing a versatile, reliable, and cost-effective solution for researchers and engineers in battery and fuel cell technology. Whether for fundamental research or large-scale industrial testing, the IviCycle offers the necessary tools for comprehensive and dependable battery testing, ensuring high-quality data collection and analysis. Its combination of flexible channel configurations, advanced impedance analysis, and secure data storage makes it an indispensable tool for modern battery research and development.
