Digatron Has Test and Formation Solutions as the EV Race Heats Up

September 27, 2017 | News Brief | Digatron has released a 48 V hybrid electric battery tester that is a high current (500 A) cycler, designed for testing batteries for the new 48V automotive platform. It can also test EV and hybrid modules, up to 100 V, and offers all the refinements of its larger model, the Electric Vehicle Tester: CAN communication to BMS, battery emulation mode, modular structure for higher output (600 V, 800 V, and 1,000 V) .

With announcements of giga factory plans from all corners of the earth, the test and formation sector will have to hit ‘warp speed’ to meet demand. Digatron, with 50 years’ experience in this sector, is more than ready with the products and the development capability, according to Kevin Campbell, CEO.

“Our MCFT multichannel test and formation system is scalable up to many tens of thousands of circuits, making it the perfect solution whether you’re building a giga factory, a pilot line plant or being prepared in order to avoid a major product recall as lithium players have had to do recently, or simply doing volume QC. Configurations in the small cell equipment range from selection of 2 A, 5 A, and 10 A, allowing paralleled combination of these ranges to allow even higher output to form or test cells of any size, and this system has been installed in configurations anywhere from 4 to 15,000 circuits,” said Campbell.
