Chroma's 17030 is an automated regenerative test system specifically designed for high power battery pack tests. Accurate power sources and measurements ensure test quality suitable for repetitive and reliable testing of crucial battery packs. Applications include incoming inspections capacity validation, production and certification testing.
Chroma's 17030 system architecture offers regenerative discharging designed to recycle the electric energy sourced by the battery pack. This feature saves electricity, reduces the facilities costs, reduces the thermal foot print and provides a green solution by reducing the environmental impact to the planet.
Chroma's 17030 system include a driving cycle simulation function. Since automotive battery packs are used at quick and irregular intervals, the 17030 incudes the capability to create seamless transitions between maximum charge and maximum discharge (or maximum discharge and maximum charge) with a rapid 50 ms conversion.
This feature allows for charge/discharge mode simulations of real world driving scenarios. The system simulates the real conditions on the battery pack in its working condition.
Chroma's 17030 system has Fexible programming functions and includes Chroma's powerful Battery Pro software. Battery Pro is a user friendly software environment allowing for the creation of a wide range of test scenarios from basic charge and discharge to complex drive cycle testing. Battery Pro's features allows quick and intuitive test development to eliminate the need for tedious scripting or programming by a software developer.
There are multiple safety features built into the 17030 including battery polarity checks, overvoltage protection, overcurrent protection and over temperature protection. In the unlikely event of a power or computer communication loss, the data is securely stored within the system in non-volatile memory thereby protecting against potential data loss and allowing for continuous flow after restart.
