The PAT-Tester-i-16 integrates a temperature controlled cell chamber and docking station with a battery tester into one single instrument.

The PAT-Tester-i-16 is our all-in-one solution for multi-channel testing.

Until now, battery research solutions for higher throughput were modular systems built around wired test cells or test cells docked into a docking station. The cells and docking stations needed to be placed into a temperature-controlled chamber and connected via many cables to a potentiostat / galvanostat outside.
Such modular and distributed set-ups are flexible, but have severe drawbacks such as a large foot print, an extensive cable harness, and susceptibility to experimental mistakes.

With the new PAT-Tester-i-16 we integrate all functions of a 16-channels battery tester, a PAT docking station, and a temperature-controlled test chamber into one single instrument.

The world-wide patented cableless connection between test cell and potentiostat saves space in your lab and eliminates wiring effort. Plug the PAT-Tester into the main power supply, connect it to your LAN and get full remote access from any host PC on the network!
The internal impedance analyser is capable of simultaneously recording both half-cell impedances while running constant current cycles or voltammetric experiments. Aquire the DC and AC characteristics of your test cells at the same time! (See our sample test case here.)
All test channels feature a connection matrix for software-controlled switching between half- and full-cell measurements without reconnecting any cables.
