Dedicated battery test system

IviCycle is designed to be your perfect partner for high channel-count battery applications. It offers a low cost-per-channel, high volume testing solution and integral extensive data storage capability


Complete solution

The IviCycle is a multi-channel test system with optional impedance capability. The channels are divided over 4 x 8 channel modules which can be a mix of the different IviCycle modules to create the desired number of channels with varying compliance.

The C200 modules each have 8 channels of ±200mA/±10V compliance, the C030 have ±200mA/±10V. Modules are available either as a DC version (no EIS), or as an EIS version with impedance capability on each of the channels. This means that simultaneous/parallel impedance measurements are possible on all channels. The IviCycle has an integrated DataSecure module that stores all data for each channel completely independently from the computer. This ensures that if there is a communication loss or a computer crash/update, the measurement will continue and data will not be lost and so gives peace-of-mind for long duration, high throughput testing. The IviCycle unit is built into a 19inch rack mountable housing for easy incorporation into existing storage racks, or as a stand-alone bench-top multi-channel system.


The maximum current or potential of the instrument can be defined by the operator. Thus valuable samples may be protected, and unsafe situations prevented.

Data security & Connection

The IviCycle is equipped with an integrated DataSecure module:

  • Data is stored on board independent of the computer.
  • Connection of multiple PCs is possible


The IviCycle is controlled via Ivium’s own software, IviumSoft. This versatile, yet intuitive software, allows instrument control, data management and analysis, etc. The IviCycle can also be controlled from LabVIEWTM, C++, Delphi, etc. A full suite of software is included as standard with each instrument.

  • Control of separate channels individually
  • All channels simultaneously
  • Synchronous start
  • Data from different channels plotted individually or in 1 single gra


The IviCycle can be controlled using Iviums own software (IviumSoft). The software allows you to control the instrument, data management and the analysis of the data collected. If you choose to use other software it can controlled using LabVIEWTM, C++, Delphi etc. The IviCycle comes with a full software which is included with each instrument.
