The PAT-Tester-i-16 integrates a fully featured battery tester, a temperature controlled cell chamber and a docking station into one single instrument.
Our all-in-one solution for multi-channel testing
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.
The PAT-Tester-i-16 will grow with your needs.
Each PAT-Tester-i-16 consists in the smallest configuration of a compact housing with a temperature-controlled cell chamber and a single pre-installed PAT-Channelboard, which represents a full-fledged test channel with potentiostats/galvanostats and impedance analyzer.
Depending on your requirements, the PAT-Tester-i-16 can accommodate up to 15 additional PAT-Channeboards. These are located directly under the connection sockets of the test cells and are contacted wirelessly. Channel boards can therefore be installed quickly and conveniently.
