High Temperature Coin Cell Module for MMC 274 Nexus®

The Only DSC for Research and Quality Control of Coin Cell Batteries

The High Temperature Coin Cell Module is a new exchangeable calorimeter module for the MMC 274 Nexus® specially dedicated to coin cell battery studies. It is the only coin cell DSC module available. The instrument can be coupled with a fully featured battery analyzer. Data generated from the MMC run is merged with the data generated from the cycler/analyzer allowing for battery data and thermal data to be plotted and analyzed on the same axis. The user can perform discharge tests to evaluate battery condition, cycle batteries to improve performance and gain insight into overall battery condition in an isothermal or temperature scanning mode.

Key features and benefits of Coin Cell HT Module:

  • The only dedicated calorimeter for coin cell measurement up to 300°C.
  • Use unique differential measuring principle for improved stability and sensitivity to capture even weak heat signal from coin cell.
  • Characterize coin cell as a whole to mimic the cell performance in real world
  • Easy to use and can run both isothermal charging/discharging method and scanning method for complete characterization of coin cell
