XCTS – Cell Test and Formation Systems

The XCTS cell test and formation system from BaSyTec is a cost effective solution for the testing and formation of large quantities of Li cells with up 25A or 50A.

Because of the innovative design, with energy recovery, the heat generated is significantly reduced which results in lower running costs.

Like all BaSyTec systems the system hardware is programmed using BaSyTest software. Once the program is running the PC can be disconnected (intentionally or not) and the system will continue to operate and collect data using internal buffers on each channel. The system can run for prolonged periods in this way and is only limited by the amount of data being collected. All data is automatically synchronised back to the PC once a connection is re-establish.

Applications include:

  • Test of high volumes of lithium cells
  • High power testing for lithium cells
  • Pulse testing for lithium cells
  • Formation of lithium cells
  • Cell matching
