CEJN quick connect couplings for battery testing and battery development


Testing plays an important role in the development of battery technologies, ongoing quality control, optimising the performance of existing systems and ensuring safe and reliable operation.

Performance tests are used to test and evaluate characteristic performance features of batteries such as capacity, energy density, voltage, power output and efficiency. This helps to determine how well a battery performs under different operating conditions and loads.

Life cycle tests are used to assess the longevity and durability of batteries. This includes subjecting batteries to repeated charge and discharge cycles while monitoring their capacity maintenance over time. By this, expected lifetime and suitability of a battery in specific applications can be determined and assessed.

Batteries are exposed to various environmental conditions during their lifetime. Climatic tests and application tests, where batteries are exposed to extreme temperatures, humidity, vibrations, shocks and other environmental factors, enable an evaluation of performance and service life under realistic operating conditions.

Safety testing involves various tests to examine the battery's resistance to, for example, thermal overload and other extreme conditions. Safety testing identifies potential risks and ensures compliance with specified safety standards.

Certification: For many applications, batteries must undergo validation and certification procedures. In these procedures, batteries are tested according to existing industry standards and regulations to ensure compliance and safety.

Quick connect couplings can be used in all of these testing procedures to reduce testing effort and set-up times, thus realising an efficient testing procedure.
