Battery testing mainly involves the analysis during fast charging and discharging under simulated real world conditions or under extreme stress. These tests can be very dangerous and can cause the release of poisonous/explosive gases, spontaneous fires or even explosions.
Zetatek is proud to introduce its new range of Battery Testing Chambers which are equipped with a host of safety features which enable the users to perform various test with assured safety in the laboratory.
|Hazard Severity Level||Description||Classification Criteria and Effect|
|0||No Effect||No effect. No loss of functionality|
|1||Passive Protection Activated||No defect; no leakage; no venting, fire, or flame; no rupture; no explosion; no exothermic reaction or thermal runaway. Cell reversibly damaged. Repair of protection device needed.|
|2||Defect/Damage||No leakage; no venting, fire, or flame; no rupture; no explosion; no exothermic reaction or thermal runaway. Cell irreversibly damaged. Repair needed.|
|3||Minor Leakage||No venting, fire, or flame*; no rupture; no explosion. Weight loss <50% of electrolyte weight (electrolyte = solvent + salt).|
|4||Major Leakage||No fire or flame; no rupture; no explosion. Weight loss >=50% of electrolyte weight (electrolyte= solvent + salt).|
|5||Fire or Flame||No rupture; no explosion (i.e., no flying parts)|
|6||Rupture||No explosion, but flying parts of the active mass|
|7||Explosion||Explosion (i.e., disintegration of the cell)|
