Wide capabilities for environmental tests on battery packs at the development stage. Compliance testing and homologation services against ECE R100 & R136 regulations (Battery Safety), UN DOT 38.3 standard (Battery Transportation), and OEM standards.
Applus+ Laboratories partners with OEMs and battery manufacturers to test battery packs safety and reliability in environmental conditions. Our network of labs combines different testing capabilities at battery module and battery pack level, to test customer specifications at the development stage. We also offer compliance testing services for key standards and regulations.
Vibrations & Environmental Testing:
We have a best-in-class test system with a large shaker (200 kN vibration, 400 kN shock) coupling with a large climatic chamber of 11 m3, ready to test battery packs up to 2 m for 1.6 m at temperatures from -50 ºC to 120 ºC. This large climatic chamber is EUCAR 6 rated (safety protections) for battery testing and can also work as stand-alone equipment to conduct thermal tests.
Our labs are equipped with several smaller climatic chambers (-70 ºC to 180 ºC) and shakers (with climatic chamber), as well as other testing capabilities for battery testing such as:
Applus+ Laboratories has dedicated facilities to test fire resistance and thermal runaway on batteries at cell, module and pack level.
Mechanical shock testing:
We can also handle all the tests related to mechanical shock and integrity as well as battery abuse.
