  • Applications and Hardware, Software Compatibility +

    Applications and Hardware, Software Compatibility

  • Development of energy sources for laptop PCs, mobile phones and power tools.
  • Fuel cell and supercapacitor research for electric vehicle or standby power.
  • Battery research including the new generation 42 V lead acid automotive batteries.
  • Electrochemical etching and electroplating.

  • An extensive range of techniques are available for use with these boosters.
  • Potentiostatic and Galvanostatic
  • Cyclic Voltammetry
  • Ohmic Drop
  • High-speed voltage and current pulse techniques (e.g. for testing GMS mobile phone and satellite communication energy storage devices)
  • Swept sine analysis - for ultimate accuracy and repeatability
  • Multi-sine / Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) - for fast impedance analysis
  • Harmonic analysis - for optimization of stimulus levels and detection of noise and interference

  • The frequency range of the power booster is 10 µHz to 100 kHz allowing a wide range of energy storage devices to be characterized over their full frequency range.
