In today’s fast-paced world the need to create quicker, more mobile mechanical devices is steadily increasing. One primary method for doing this is to replace traditional gas-powered or plugged-in devices with battery power. Batteries have become smaller and increasingly efficient as a result. In order to keep up with the rate of technology advancement, the equipment used to test advanced technology must also be advanced, flexible, and responsive. For these reasons, the PSB bidirectional programmable DC power supply series by EA Elektro-Automatik is a perfect fit for advanced battery test. The PSB bidirectional supply can seamlessly switch between providing power to charge the battery and controlling the discharge of the battery.
Specifying just the right equipment, the following will provide some basic guidance and considerations on how to build a robust battery test system to ensure the safety and proper functioning of all test equipment and batteries under test.
