Auxiliary Modules

To complement our main battery test equipment systems, Arbin Instruments also offers a full complement of auxiliary modules to address further testing requirements. These modules expand testing capability beyond the main charge/discharge control circuitry and can be placed in either the main chassis or a small external chassis, making it easy to add auxiliary options to your existing systems.

Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) Interface

Arbin's EIS Integration solutions are designed to support full or half-cell battery characterization or any other electrochemical device. Arbin's EIS board can easily integrate with your cycler for lower frequency needs. Arbin also has an integrated EIS solution that combines the multi-channel, high-precision battery test performance of Arbin with advanced EIS capability for higher frequency. These solutions share up to 32 Arbin channels (through multiplexing) with a single EIS unit to maximize the duty cycle of both instruments. No change in connection is necessary.

  • Frequency Range of 10μHz to 100kHz Integrated With Arbin Cycler
  • Available on Arbin LBT, MSTAT, and HSP Systems
  • Arbin EIS 20P
  • Arbin EIS 40P
  • Gamry 1010E
  • Gamry 5000E
  • Gamry 5000P
  • Gamry Ref 3000

Auxiliary Pressure Inputs

The Pressure Input option can be used to record pressure measurements with pressure transducers and works similarly to the 2nd voltage measurement.

  • 8 Channels
  • 0 ~ 100mV or 0 ~ 10mV Pressure Sensor Output Voltage Range
  • ±0.1% FSR Measurement Accuracy
  • 10G Ohm Input Impedance
  • 13” x 7” x 3” Chassis Dimensions

External Control Auxiliaries

Auxiliary_digital-analog-input-output-icon

Analog and Digital Input/Output (AI/O, DI/O)

Analog and Digital Input/Output channels allow the Arbin system to interact with external hardware and devices through a digital on/off relay signal or an analog 0-10V signal. Typical uses include pumps, flow meters, valves, etc., for flow battery applications.

Third-Party Temperature Chamber Interface (TCI)

The TCI module allows the Arbin system to communicate with an approved third-party temperature chamber. Arbin’s software can turn the chamber on/off and adjust the temperature during the test. Note: Arbin also offers a compact Multi-Chamber below for cell-testing applications.

  • 1 module controls 1 chamber
  • 0.5U size
  • Request list of compatible controllers

CAN Bus

The CAN Bus options allow the Arbin system to communicate with the battery management system inside a battery pack. The Arbin system can also be controlled by external CAN messages such as from a BMS or external modeling software.

  • Available per channel
  • CAN Bus protocol

CAN Bus-MTCI

The Temperature Chamber Interface (MTCI) allows the Arbin system to communicate with an approved third-party temperature/environment chamber. Arbin’s software can turn the chamber on/off and adjust the temperature during the test. Temperature setpoints from the chamber controller are automatically logged in the data and independent temperature measurements are available using thermocouple or thermistor inputs.
The CAN Bus option allows the Arbin system to communicate with the battery management system inside a battery pack. The Arbin system can also be controlled by external CAN messages such as from a BMS or external modeling software.

  • Available per channel
  • CAN Bus protocol
  • Single Channel (1 Module Controls 1 Chamber)
  • RS232 Compliance Standard
  • 13” x 7” x 3” Chassis Dimensions
  • List of Compatible Controllers Available By Request

Options

Auto-Calibration

The Auto-Calibration module enables the Arbin system to self-calibrate when connected to the HP34461A meter.

  • 1 module applies to all channels

Arbin Multi-Zone Temperature Chamber (MZTC)

The MZTC Multi-Chamber provides 8 fully independent mini-chambers with a temperature range of [ambient-10] to 60°C. Each mini-chamber can hold 1 to 4 cells depending on cell type and amperage. Racks are available for multiple MZTC units.
