ATEQ introduces its new EV/HEV battery module balancer, the EVB 5100. The unit is ideal for rework stations in battery manufacturing or electric vehicle production plants. The EVB 5100 uses the most efficient and precise technologies to equalize voltage differences between modules to maximize battery performance.
Automotive assembly plants cannot just assume the batteries they put in their electric vehicles are perfect. If electric vehicle batteries are underperforming, it is likely due to electric cell imbalance. Slight differences in the modules’ capacity, temperature, state of charge, self-discharge rate and impedance can lead to a deviation in voltage.
When an EV battery is diagnosed as being defective on the production line, the faulty module needs to be replaced. The EVB5100 Module Balancer charges or discharges the new replacement module to the same state of charge as the other modules. Performing the battery balancing onsite in the factory with the EVB5100 saves time and money since the transportation of batteries and modules is complex and expensive.
Using ATEQ’s EVB 5100 is very simple and user friendly. Its color screen guides the technician to select the right battery module type from the database, set the target voltage, and charge or discharge the module safely with the unit’s automatic lid and advanced security features. The EVB5100 delivers a detailed report that can be transferred to the factory network, or accessed remotely via a cloud-based interface.
In addition to module balancing, ATEQ also offers leak testers that can be used at every step of EV battery production-from leak testing the insulation of each individual battery cell pouch, to testing the battery module, making sure the giant battery pack housing that holds hundreds of cells doesn’t leak.
With ATEQ’s new addition of the EVB 5100 to the current leak, flow and battery testing product lineup, the company can now provide testers not only for the production process, but also for final QC assembly testing and maintenance.
The EVB5100 is now available in Europe/North America.
