Scalable battery calorimeter

calorimeter manufacturers

Battery cells must be tested with regard to their efficiency and operational reliability from the designing phase to the production process. For the thermal monitoring of batteries, a modular calorimeter has been developed at PTB. It consists of a variable number of practically identical components and allows the most diverse battery cell sizes to be examined. The modules are easily scalable with regard to their geometry. Different types of sizes are covered without having to buy a new device. The battery calorimeter can be integrated into existing systems at low cost.

(Technology Offer 494)

The calorimetric water-cooled modules fully enclose the battery cell and ensure good thermal contact.


adapts easily to the size of the module
