Battery chamber and battery test

A battery chamber is a special space or device used to conduct a battery test and evaluate the performance of lithium-ion batteries and other types of batteries under controlled conditions. It is designed to simulate various environments and operating conditions that batteries may be exposed to during real use, such as temperature, humidity and load.

The battery chamber is equipped with various sensors and measuring equipment to continuously monitor and measure parameters such as temperature, voltage, amperage, capacity and lifespan of the batteries during the test. This measurement data can then be used to evaluate the batteries' performance and durability under different operating conditions.

The chamber can also be used to perform so-called "cycle tests", where the batteries are charged and discharged over repeated cycles to simulate real-world use and evaluate their life and durability. These tests are important in determining how long a battery will last and under what conditions it will do so, and can also be used to compare the performance of different batteries or to develop new batteries with better performance.

Battery chamber is a perfect complement for those who want to carry out a battery test in a safe and controlled environment. The chamber creates a safe and controlled environment for conducting battery tests by isolating and regulating environmental factors such as temperature, humidity and load. This allows tests to be performed under conditions that simulate real-world use, providing more accurate and relevant data. In addition, the chamber can be equipped with safety features such as fans, alarms and fire fighting to protect people, equipment and the environment from possible damage caused by the batteries during the test.

How to conduct a battery test

A battery test in a battery chamber can be carried out in several different ways, depending on the type of test to be performed and the parameters to be measured. A common method is to perform cycling tests, where the battery is charged and discharged over repeated cycles to simulate real-world use and evaluate its life and durability.

Example of how a cycle test/battery test is carried out in a battery chamber:

  • Place the battery in the chamber and set the desired test environmental conditions, such as temperature and humidity.
  • Connect the battery to the charging and discharging equipment.
  • Start the cycle by allowing the battery to charge to a preset voltage level and then discharge it to another preset level. Repeat this several times to simulate real use.
  • Monitor and measure parameters such as temperature, voltage, amperage and capacity during the cycle.
  • Repeat the cycle several times to evaluate battery life and performance.

Advantages of performing battery tests in a battery chamber are:

  • Ability to perform tests under controlled conditions to simulate real use.
  • Ability to monitor and measure parameters such as temperature, voltage and capacity during the test, providing more accurate and detailed data.
  • Ability to perform cycle tests and evaluate battery life and durability.
  • Ability to compare the performance of different batteries or new battery designs.
  • Ability to improve the performance of the batteries and reduce the risk of failure and damage to the batteries during real use.

The market's best battery chamber is available from Labotest

Complete in basic configuration and accessories

To offer optimal protection for people, test objects, equipment and the laboratory itself when testing electrical storage devices, our ClimeEvent and TempEvent standard test chambers are the best choice. They are easy to use and are available with test volumes varying from 40 to 2,000 litres. Here, a large number of standard accessories are available to you.

Almost endless modifications

Special test tasks require special test chambers. Therefore, we adapt the standard chambers according to the risk assessment and the existing requirements. For example, by adding safety components such as a flush unit with particularly high air exchange. In addition, we offer a variety of special adaptations, such as placing the control technology above the test chamber, for heavy breaks with telescopic systems and drawer pull systems for up to 12 batteries with a guide-through and plug-in panel.
