Rechargeable Lithium Batteries became the choice energy storage for portable electronic devices, appliances, electric bicycles, vehicles, military equipment, etc. Reliability and safety become crucial. The batteries must perform well in hot and cold conditions, while not posing a hazard due to leaking or exploding.
Published standards by IEC, SAE, UL, and UN specify environmental tests like temperature cycling, heat resistance, thermal abuse and short circuit while hot.
Because failure during testing can produce hazardous results, these test chambers will require proper safety features and considerations.
During the thermal tests, battery malfunctions may occur that can lead to the destruction of the batteries. For this reason, safety in the laboratory and protection of the staff during such tests must have the highest priority.
Aralab TESTA chambers for Battery Testing can offer safety systems / devices which comply with the EUCAR Hazard Levels. The Hazard Levels safety equipment can be adapted according to customer specifications. Based on your own testing needs and safety requirements, Aralab can help with the required safety options to create a comprehensive security system.
