Supplier of automatic test equipment and selective soldering systems Seica says its Pilot BT series of flying probe test systems is designed to test full-size EV lithium-ion battery packs, and can meet the most complex technical needs of battery manufacturers.
This Seica test solution has the capability to test, with maximum accuracy, the interconnections (bonding resistance) of Prismatic and Cylindrical cells present in the battery module, the company said.
EV battery manufacturers produce many types of battery families with different physical shapes and electrical characteristics, so the Pilot BT series has a maximum testing area of 1050 mm x 865 mm (41.33 ’’ x 34.05 ’’) designed to accommodate all types of battery packs on a fully customizable conveyor system.
The system features up to 4 independent test heads driven by synchronized brushless motors (XYZ), to provide a high-level dynamic response. Each one of the four heads features a mini fixture that can test up to four individual cells in a single movement in either an X or Y axis orientation.
