Battery Test Systems and Test Benches
A preconfigured battery test bench enables efficient, precise and user-friendly battery testing, which can be beneficial in research and development as well as industrial production.
P280-200 Battery Test System
The P280-200 battery test system is a stand-alone system that can be used in both the development and production of battery modules and systems.
Single/multi place tester model P480-1000
Power class up to 480 V / 1000 A
Insulation test up to 6 kV
Single/multi station tester model P1000-500
The P1000-500 battery test system is a scalable high-performance test system consisting of a central power unit with power supplies and electronic loads and up to four mobile test stations. The test stations contain the necessary measurement technology and the PC terminal with touch screen for operating the test bench. The modular concept, the shared use of the power supplies and loads, and the regenerative capability of the loads enable extremely cost-efficient operation of the entire test system – both in the development and production of battery systems. The required powers are switched to the respective test station via a specially developed high-power switching matrix.

Preconfigured battery test benches
Due to the pre-configuration, all necessary settings and parameters are already prepared, which significantly reduces the setup time and accelerates the test operation.
Preconfigured test stands are usually designed to be user-friendly and require less technical expertise to operate. This makes them easier to use by different employees.
Prior configuration and test runs ensure higher reliability and precision of the tests, as potential sources of errors can be identified and eliminated in advance.
Preconfigured test benches enable standardized test procedures that deliver reproducible results, ensuring comparability of tests across different time periods or locations.
The predefined configuration minimizes human error and ensures a smooth test flow, resulting in overall higher efficiency in terms of time, resources, and costs.
Preconfigured test stands can often be easily adapted to specific requirements or test conditions, allowing flexibility in performing different tests.
Prior configuration facilitates documentation of tests performed and results, which is important for quality assurance and reporting purposes.
Preconfigured test stands can often be seamlessly integrated into existing test environments or processes.
