The ideal test cell for high-throughput battery testing.
Our electrochemical standard test cell for high-throughput testing.
The PAT-Cell is the test cell for high-throughput testing of battery materials. The PAT-Cell has no sockets for direct cable connections. It must therefore be used with a docking station such as the PAT-Stand-1 or PAT-Stand-16. This enables parallel battery tests to generate more reliable test results with less effort and in a shorter period of time.
The PAT-Cell and the PAT-Stand-16 are a solution for medium and large battery test laboratories with more than 10 test cells running in parallel. Moreover, the PAT-Cell increases the testing productivity through easy handling and it saves space in the lab.

Adjustable, reproducible and homogeneous mechanical pressure on electrodes
Materials in media contact are stainless steel 1.4404 and PEEK (other materials on request)
Long term tests
The PAT-Core enables battery tests with a three-electrode setup of a duration of 1000 hours and more. The reason for this advantage is the new ring-shaped Li-reference electrode, which is far more time stable than point-type reference electrodes.
This makes the PAT-Core the perfect test system for aging studies.
The new PAT series improves the productivity of battery testing. The single-use concept avoids effort for cleaning and disassembling the PAT-Cores. When used with a PAT-Stand-16, it saves time for connecting the test cells with the potentiostat for every new battery test. Moreover, the PAT-Stand-16 saves space in the lab through the compact design for up to 16 PAT-Cells. All these features increase the battery testing productivity and facilitate high-throughput testing.
