Chroma 17020 Sys tem i s a high preci s ion integrated solution specifically designed for secondary battery module and pack tests. Accurate source and measurement ensure the test quality that is suitable for performing exact, reliable testing crucial for battery module / pack incoming or outgoing inspection as well as capacity, performance, production and qualication testing.
Chroma 17020 Sys tem archi tec ture of fer s regenerative discharge energy design to recycle the electric energy sourced by the battery module / pack to channels in the system performing a charging function or back to the utility mains in the most energy efficient manner. This feature saves electricity, reduces the facilities thermal foot print and provides a green solution by reducing the environmental impact on our planet.
Chroma 17020 System, equipped with multiple independent channels, to support dedicated charge / discharge tests on multiple battery modules / pac k s each wi th di s c rete tes t characteristics. Channels may be easily paralleled to support higher current requirements. This feature provides the ultimate flexibility between high channel count and high current testing.
Advanced driving hardware can create seamless transitions between a maximum charge to maximum discharge (or maximum discharge to maximum charge) with a rapid 10mS conversion. This feature allows for charge/discharge modes simulating real world scenarios.
Chroma 17020 System has flexible programming functions and may be operated with Chroma's powerful "Battery Pro" Software. Battery Pro utilizes the system to create cycling tests from basic charge or discharge to complex drive cycle testing for each channel or channel groups. Thermal chamber control can be integrated into a prole and triggered by time or test results yielding a dynamic profile. Battery Pro's features allow quick and intuitive test development eliminating the need of tedious scripting or programming by a software engineer.
Multiple safety features are standard including Battery Polarity Check, Over Voltage Protection, Over Cur rent Protec t ion check and Over Temperature Protection to ensure protected charge / discharge testing. In the unlikely event of power or computer communication loss, data is securely stored in system non-volatile memory protecting against potential data loss and allowing for continuous ow after restart.
