Missuse and Abuse Tests

We simulate extreme loads in order to characterize entire modules or batteries with regard to safety and quality requirements.
Abuse tests help our customers in development and manufacturing. With our test benches we are able to simulate extreme scenarios and perform missuse and abuse tests of entire lithium-ion battery systems up to 180kWh.
Our offer includes

  • Testing of complete e-vehicle systems (partly fire tests)
  • Penetration of nails
  • Short circuit
  • Thermal stability
  • Gas analysis

We test according to customer-specific specifications or standardized test series such as:

  •     ECE R100
  •     UN 38.3
  •     VDE-AR-E 2510-50:2017-05
