Unico releases the BAT300 Series, an EV battery testing solution

Unico said the BAT300 Series is based on the Unico IDAC power platform and offers performance, efficiency and versatility at a reduced cost.

Unico introduced the BAT300 Series at this year’s International Battery Seminar. Unico said the BAT300 Series is based on the Unico IDAC power platform and offers performance, efficiency and versatility at a reduced cost.

“With the recent acquisition of Present Power Systems, we’re already harnessing technologies from our new Advanced Technology Group, and the BAT300 Series represents our first product coming out of the acquisition,” Steve Bright, CEO of Unico, said. “The new IDAC power platform empowers Unico to enhance our presence in battery markets and venture into new sectors, such as on-board charging, home charging, battery recycling and more.”

According to Unico, key features of the BAT300 Series include:

  • Industrial-grade reliability, efficiency, and standard performance and accuracy;
  • Supports one to thousands of channels for multiple applications;
  • Channels can be application-specific, for example, to age the cells for characterization in the cell test application, provide a voltage and current source for the formation application and perform basic end-of-line checks for the manufacturing application;
  • Basic cell test requirements such as remote voltage sense, temperature measurement for the cell, calibration and DC contactor control can be included;
  • Compact design with high efficiency and bi-directional capability;
  • Novel power electronics topology includes in each channel:
    • The 480VAC AC to DC conversion;
    • The channel-to-channel isolation;
    • The DC control of the output;
    • All in a single power stage.

The BAT300 Series marks Unico’s first product launch on the new Unico IDAC power platform following the acquisition of Present Power Systems (PPS), which the company said expanded its product portfolio of battery cell, module and pack testing solutions. The company said this technology is ideally suited for cell formation in gigafactories, as well as for aging and functionality testing in R&D laboratories and end-of-life (EOL) activities in cell/module manufacturing lines.

The product is ready for demonstration purposes with the first deliveries this summer.
