25 July 2019. The electrochemical industry is a highly competitive sector that requires extreme accuracy, with precision battery testing equipment playing a significant role. Electrochemical R&D is continuously looking for new and innovative ways to improve battery flows, increase capacity and establish ways to ensure capacity retention over the lifespan of the battery. The smallest of fractions of lost power capacity can be hugely influential in the overall scheme of things

What is a Battery Impedance Tester?

A battery impedance tester is a vital piece of equipment that is most frequently used in businesses where downtime would be costly and have a significant, negative impact on operations. When organizations in this type of industry are searching for different forms of battery testing equipment, those that cause minimal disruption, they usually opt for a battery impedance tester — a non-intrusive battery test which allows operations to continue normally.

What Is Involved In Electrochemical R&D?

As with R&D in many different industries, the methods are continually evolving. In the modern world, the quest for green energy is becoming central to the entire sector. Often, it will involve the complex synthesis of both organic and inorganic chemicals as well as generating power from the recycling of different forms of waste. Much of this is uncharted waters, meaning that accurate results are essential.

Why Is There Such a Need for Precision Battery Testing?

As touched upon, most of the processes that are involved with electrochemical R&D are new; many tests incorporate several unknown factors. Gaining information at the R&D stage is vital as it can be used to improve processes and equipment. Precision equipment will be able to identify different factors and calculate their contribution to the process.

When the data is accurate and trusted, it gives confidence to scientists, chemists and perhaps most importantly, clients. Confidence enables organizations to progress rapidly with their ideas and concepts. This means that solutions which will benefit a variety of different industries are just around the corner.

The Need for Confidentiality

The electrochemical industry is hugely lucrative and companies invest vast sums of money into R&D. The information obtained from precision battery testing equipment is extremely sensitive and indeed valuable. The data, therefore, must not be easily accessible to those who haven’t been granted access to it. As a result, all of our equipment comes with the latest security for the protection of your intellectual property.

The Use of High Precision Equipment in Operations

The electrochemical industry relies on equipment such as a battery impedance tester as many operations are time-consuming and can take hours or days to complete. Battery impedance testing takes approximately 4 hours for a 200 Volt battery system. Battery testing equipments need to be fully operationally; otherwise anomalies will occur leading to erroneous results. High precision battery testing ensures that all machinery and equipment is operating at full capacity.

The Use of High Precision Equipment in Testing

Naturally, when it comes to materials research, the latest equipment is essential and plays a vital role in R&D and in testing. The entire electrochemical industry is continuously striving to achieve results that will have a long-term benefit to a multitude of industries as well as their own. As such, mainly at the R&D stage, high-precision equipment is a necessity to identify different areas where performance is compromised.

The data provided by the battery testing equipment must be extremely accurate and be able to test various factors. For example, cells required currently in the automobile industry need higher capacities as well as retain much of that for around 10 years. Arbin has created battery testing equipment related to R&D in the electrochemical industry and more accurately, the automobile industry.


High precision battery testing is becoming increasingly affordable, and its impact on the electrochemical industry is significant. Quality manufacturers of this type of equipment invest substantial resources into creating machinery that is the best on the market. The accuracy of these pieces of equipment is facilitating dramatic improvements within the entire sector and influencing many others.
