IBCx Isothermal Battery Calorimeter

Multicell Format

The IBCx when used with an external cycler provides accurate and easy testing of battery heat output from charging and discharging.

Cell temperature is kept constant, regardless of the C-rate. The amount of heat generated by the battery is then determined throughout the charge and discharge cycle. The standard system accommodates pouch and prismatic cells. Adaptors are available for cylindrical cells.

The IBCx allows for characterisation of battery heat at different operating temperatures and C-rates, thereby providing information on battery performance, efficiency and life cycle.

NOTE: The IBCx is not appropriate for safety abuse testing when battery disintegration or high temperatures may result.
