MPG-200 battery cycler.
The MPG battery testing system: Precision, stability and power – perfect for in-house R&D or academia
The MPG-200 series is a high-end battery testing system made up of two core configurations. The MPG-2 features 16 independent channels at 100 mA, whereas the MPG-205 offers eight 5 A channels. Both MPG battery testing systems are available with or without EIS capabilities.
MPG-200 Battery Testing Systems: The power of a high-end potentiostat/galvanostat, the simplicity of a battery cycler
MPG-200 series battery testing system’s high-end specification has been designed to address the most demanding battery testing needs possible.
Equipped with five leads to connect to batteries with reference electrodes, the MPG-2 battery testing system features 16 channels with a maximum current of +- 100 mA per channel, its voltage range of +- 10 V makes it suitable for any cell (half, full, symmetrical) configuration.
The MPG-205 features 8 channels at ± 5A. With its voltage range from -2 to + 9 V, this battery testing system has four electrode connections.
Both units share a 200 µs time-base/sampling rate, a remarkable 800 pA current resolution, and their dynamic range can lower their voltage resolution down to 5 µV.
Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) is available as an option and can run simultaneously on every channel from 100 kHz to 10 µHz.
Each channel can be equipped with a Pt-100 probe for temperature measurements and can interface external devices through analog and digital input/output.
Both units can be stacked in a five-position rack, giving users total autonomy to develop a bespoke system to perfectly fit their needs.
Perfectly suited for energy applications
MPG-200 series battery testing systems feature a comprehensive set of battery-specific and general electrochemistry techniques and analysis tools including:
• Differential Coulometry (dQ/dV)
• High Precision Coulometry (HPC)
• Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS)
• Capacity slippage
• User profile
• Pulse techniques
EC-Lab: The benchmark for control software
MPG battery testing systems are supplied with EC-Lab® software, free of charge. This powerful software package, often referred to as the benchmark interface for electrochemistry is especially suited to battery and supercapacitor applications. A truly comprehensive package, EC-Lab™ covers every step of the battery testing process from test plan design to test monitoring and analysis.
The graphic package provided with the EC-Lab® software includes advanced analysis and fitting tools (Z Fit). Some process functions, such as “Capacity & Energy per cycle” or “Constant Power Protocol Summary“ help the user calculate additional variables during successive cycles, such as:
- Charge/discharge capacity
- Dynamic resistance
