Battery Test & Measurement

WireFlow Bifrost for your battery testing needs

Advances in batteries mean that battery manufacturers, integrators, second-life designers and recyclers are conducting more and more advanced tests on their batteries. Implementing and automating effective tests across the value chain is challenging. Test solutions are needed in all areas of development; including R&D, manufacturing, repurposing and recycling.

No two battery technologies are the same, and the test system must be able to adapt to  different and changing needs. Wireflow’s battery test solution Bifrost can be tailored to your system requirements, ensuring that your unique innovations are thoroughly examined and optimized for success.

Bifrost is a highly configurable platform applicable to various test and measurement scenarios for battery systems. It is based on WireFlow’s extensive experience in battery applications and hands-on expertise in delivering robust test and measurement systems.

Bifrost includes a power cabinet with regenerative power supply units and distributed connection nodes, allowing the system to test multiple batteries simultaneously and independently, enhancing operational efficiency.

Research & development

Testing during battery development is critical to ensure performance, safety and reliability. Our battery testing systems cover capacity assessments, dynamic charge and discharge cycles, C-rate performance, and voltage profiles. This helps our customers understand and optimize different aspects for peak performance.

Our cycle life testing can simulate daily use, giving insights into battery endurance under different conditions. Flexible custom test scenarios helps researchers and developers identify potential areas for improvement, leading to more robust and dependable battery designs.

Bifrost Module and Pack testers are user-programmable, helping test engineers to do different types of “what if testing”. The system can be customized by WireFlow to fit the voltage levels, capacity, CAN communication etc. used by your battery pack.

Recycling, Repurposing and Refurbishment

Whatever your goals for the refurbishment, repurposing, or recycling of batteries are; the Bifrost Module and Pack series is designed using input from multiple industrial customers to meet your needs.

The Bifrost tester for repurposing, refurbishment, and recycling has a modular design to accommodate a wide range of voltage, current, and power requirements. Additionally, it is designed to perform a variety of tasks, including State of Health (SOH) assessments for characterizing and estimating remaining life, TotalDischarge™ for safe recycling, individual cell balancing, as well as charging and discharging for maintenance or transportation purposes.

WireFlow’s expertise in test and measurement, combined with in-depth battery domain knowledge, ensures safe and advanced operation, ultimately helping you save costs in the long term.

Production Testing and Charge for transportation

The WireFlow Bifrost systems are robust with a user-friendly interface, making them ideal for the demanding environment of the factory floor. Designed to handle high-volume production, these systems ensure consistent and accurate results.

Seamless communication with factory IT systems enhances efficiency, enabling precise programming and configuration for each battery pack. This integration minimizes errors and maintains uniformity across the production line.

The system executes a comprehensive functional testing protocol, evaluating fundamental functionalities beyond charging. This step provides an additional layer of quality assurance, ensuring each battery leaving the production line meets the highest standards of performance and reliability

Batteries are charged to the specified State of Charge (SOC). This ensures that the battery is charged according to the needs, whether for transportation or for assembly into a final product.
