The name for excellence in battery test equipment
The founders of Maccor designed and built their first computer based battery test
system in 1983, for use in the development of a re-chargeable Lithium battery.
Today, Maccor designs and manufactures an extensive range of automated battery
test equipment for use in applications including materials testing, battery R&D,
manufacturing, quality control, and product testing. Based on an exclusive electronics
design, Maccor systems are acknowledged worldwide for their superior performance
in terms of accuracy, speed, and overall functionality. Continued high levels of perfor
-mance, quality, and technical support have enabled Maccor to maintain their position
as the industry standard in more than 30 countries.
Analyzer can be operated as stand alone units or in conjunction with a multiplexer,
which when combined can provide a powerful multi-channel material testing tool.
Typical tests that can be performed include constant current/voltage/power cycling,
cyclic voltametry, and sweep frequency AC impedance.
The Series 4000 is the flagship of the Maccor product line, providing customized,
multiple channel, battery test systems that offer the highest level of specifications and
features. These systems can be supplied with 1, 2, or 4 current ranges per test channel,
with current ranges from 150 m A to 2000 A at voltages from 5 V to 150 V. Standard
specifications include a time r esolution of 10 milli-seconds and accuracy <0.02% full
scale for both current and voltage. High-speed pulsing options are available for single
level, multiple level, and multi-slot pulses, down to 100 m S pulse width. Up to 128
channels can be supplied per system. Optional features include, temperature, pressure,
and individual cell voltage measurements, external charge and discharge controllers,
output drives for switching external devices, and smart battery pack interface. The system
is complemented with a new enhanced graphics and optional data processing package,
that provides an extremely high level of flexibility in the way data is plotted or processed.
Primary cell testing is also emphasized with the recently introduced Series 3500.
This system is designed to meet ANSI and IEC specifications over a wide range of current
and resistive loads. Typically used for short-term tests, this system provides a higher level
of testing capability and reduced maintenance when compared with traditional designs.
In the last 4 years, Maccor has supplied over 100 cell formation systems for use in the
manufacture of Lithium Ion and Lithium Polymer cells. With formation cabinet sizes from 256
to 2048 cells, each cell has independent control of the formation program, and of the data
measurement and storage. A typical system can form cells at up to 5 V, 2.5 A, or at higher
currents with our cell combination feature. The standard constant current, constant voltage
formation profile can be programmed, along with cell grading and multiple safety functions.
A variety of mechanical cell fixture assemblies are available for use with different cylindrical,
prismatic and polymer cell sizes.
To help maintain our worldwide leadership in battery test systems, product support is
provided by a team of experienced customer support personnel. These engineers are dedicated to
assisting the customer in obtaining the maximum benefit from the ownership
of a Maccor system. This support is provided by phone, fax, e-mail, or site visit, as appropriate.
