MPG-200 battery cycler series.

The MPG series: Precision, stability and power – perfect for in-house R&D or academia

The MPG-200 series is a high-end battery tester series made 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 cyclers are available with or without EIS capabilities.

The power of a high-end potentiostat/galvanostat, the simplicity of a battery cycler

MPG-200 series battery cyclers’ 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 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 cycler 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.

MPG-200 series instruments feature a comprehensive set of battery-specific and general electrochemistry techniques and analysis tools including:
• PITT
• GITT
• Linear Sweep Voltammetry
• Chronoamperometry
• Chronopotentiometry
• Differential Coulometry (dQ/dV)
• High Precision Coulometry (HPC)
• Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS)
• Capacity slippage
• User profile

EC-Lab: The benchmark for control software

MPGs 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 through 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:

  • Energy
  • Charge/discharge capacity
  • Efficiency
  • Dynamic resistance

What should I do if I have an issue?

In case of problems, information on your hardware and software configuration is necessary to analyze and finally solve the problem you encounter.

 

If you have any questions or if any problem occurs that is not mentioned in this document, please contact your local retailer. The highly-qualified staff will be glad to help you.

Please keep information on the following at hand:

  • Description of the error (the error message, mpr file, picture of setting or any other useful information) and of the context in which the error occurred. Try to remember all steps you had performed immediately before the error occurred. The more information on the actual situation you can provide, the easier it is to track the problem.
  • The serial number of the device located on the rear panel device.
  • The software and hardware version you are currently using. On the Help menu, click About. The displayed dialog box shows the version numbers.
  • The operating system on the connected computer.
