Electrochemical battery test cell with reference electrode
Make the move to the PAT-Cell
Our new PAT series test cells offer many advantages over their ECC predecessors:
No more drying and cleaning of cell components
Superior half-cell impedance measurements due to the ring-shaped reference electrode
Easy-to-use cableless design prevents cable clutter and saves time and effort. Just insert into a PAT docking station or PAT battery tester and start characterization.
Reworked cell design with improved sealings for much better long-term stability
Patented PAT-Core concept with ready-to-use cell components vastly reduces assembly times
Perfectly matched potentiostats from EL-CELL available for improved workflow and productivity
The ECC-Ref electrochemical cell is dedicated to the characterization of aprotic battery and capacitor systems in three-electrode configuration. A typical application is the characterization of a full lithium-ion battery (e.g. graphite anode and lithium metal oxide cathode) with a lithium metal reference. A re-fitting kit is available to use the ECC-Ref cell in two-electrode configuration, thus converting the ECC-Ref into the ECC-Std test cell.
Cell parts that come in contact with the electrolyte are made of stainless steel and PEEK and can thus withstand all common aprotic organic electrolytes used in lithium-ion battery and aprotic supercapacitor technology. Current collectors are also available in many other metals like 316L (1.4404), gold and tantalum.
