Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries play an important role in the transition away from non-renewable sources of energy. Due to the long lifetime demanded of sustainable technologies, high accuracy, high precision testing is needed to enable reliable predictions of the lifetime of batteries within a short period of time. Novonix specializes in developing equipment with a strong focus on the use of High Precision Coulometry (HPC) for reliable lifetime evaluation of lithium-ion cells.
Novonix’s High Precision Charger systems provide industry leading low noise and high accuracy source and measurement electronics catered to making precision measurements, including coulombic efficiency. When used with a properly controlled temperature, these systems are capable of measuring coulombic efficiency with a precision of 20 ppm and accuracy of 50 ppm.
Novonix’s thermal chambers provide accurate and stable temperature control and interface seamlessly with cycler systems. Novonix’s thermal chambers can operate from -20°C to +80°C, and can accommodate a range of cell sizes.
Novonix provides fully integrated systems, including cell connectors. Novonix’s cell connectors include 4-wire connections and on-board RTD temperature sensors. Novonix manufactures cell connectors configured for pouch cells, coin cells, and cylindrical cells.
Novonix’s Differential Thermal Analysis (DTA) system enables the reliable measurement of the evolution of liquid electrolyte in lithium-ion cells and other electrochemical cells.
