Unique and unusual solutions are standard at Seica, and visitors at this year’s productronica will be able to view Seica’s new generation, one-of-a-kind solution for testing EV battery packs.
With global battery markets growing exponentially, the need to increase production throughput, improve reliability of the packs produced while optimizing the cost of battery pack testing are major challenges faced by today’s manufacturers. Seica is ready to share expertise acquired in over 10 years’ experience of providing leading-edge battery testing solutions at this year’s productronica, booth A1-445, where the Pilot Battery Tester (Pilot BT) will be on display.
As part of Seica’s Pilot Next Series, the Pilot BT represents a new generation of flying probe test solutions for the specific test requirements of this increasingly high-volume manufacturing process.
With its impressive parallel testing architecture, the Pilot BT is able to perform parallel, very precise Kelvin tests of 16 cells at once, achieving production rates of nearly 2400 battery cells per minute, more than doubling first generation performance. The standard system configuration includes a pass-through conveyance by Bosch, but it can also be configured with customer-specified conveyance solutions integrated into completely automated lines. The Pilot BT is equipped with high-definition cameras and laser sensor to ensure proper fiducial recognition, and terminal plates for proper battery placement inside its very large test area (1050 x 865 mm); these ample dimensions not only enable it to handle the many battery configurations currently on the market, but the capacity to manage the configurations of the future. No matter the battery technology, type, size or shape, Seica has a solution for high production, reliable, and repeatable test.
Come visit us at booth A1-445 to see the new generation Pilot BT and learn how it has helped our customers achieve their goals in this demanding, high volume production environment
