Advanced battery testing
Superior safety and quality are key requirements for KREISEL Electric battery systems. To ensure this and at the same time deliver excellent battery performance, a series of test procedures for mobile and stationary battery applications is decisive.
With the shaker test, KREISEL examines the influence of a variety of mechanical forces when applied on the battery systems. The forces are comparable to vibrations experienced over the service life in use, such as vibrations on bad roads, potholes, jumps in motor sports, and “slapping” of motorboats on waves. Modules, stacks, and battery systems are subjected to a number of mechanical stress tests, including vibrations and mechanical shocks with high acceleration forces.
Immersion tests are used to verify the degree of protection (IP) against the infiltration of water. As a leading supplier of marine battery systems, KREISEL batteries meet the normative requirements of IP67 (immersion in 1 m depth for 30 minutes). For projects with stricter requirements, such as the Racebird for E1 series, KREISEL goes above and beyond normative requirements and measures the tightness up to a diving depth of 5 m (during a 5-minute dive).
