Large Climatic Vibration Laboratory

Opened in October 2020, our £1.5m Large Climatic Vibration Laboratory is the UK’s first battery vibration test facility or ‘shaker’ to also offer electrical and thermal cycling, perfectly complementing our existing range of vibration equipment.

The Large Climatic Vibration Laboratory enables battery charging and discharging whilst in use, along with climatic capability, to carry out tests in ambient conditions ranging from -40°C to 100°C.

The twin-vibration facility can operate in three axes and has the capacity to vibrate up to 2.5 tonne of mass, meaning that we can test the biggest EV batteries in the market to regulatory standards such as UN38.3 and UNECE R100.

The test beds can also operate in single mode, allowing two smaller batteries to be tested in parallel. 

The ‘shaker’ can be programmed with customer or industry duty cycles (both electrical and thermal) – a unique function that will provide test results representative of real-world conditions.
