A Bulgarian research institute with more than 40 years of experience in R&D of specialised technologies and products for the aerospace and advanced materials industries has developed a precise tester for battery and accumulator tests with capacity up to 100 milliamperes per hour (mA/h). The institute seeks commercial agreements with technical assistance with battery developer companies.
The research unit has broad R&D activities in the field of space physics, remote sensing, aerospace systems and technologies, composite and advanced material, special purpose devices. It has implemented successfully national and international project with research and industrial partners. The battery tester is an electronic device intended for testing the state of battery - for testing the charge actually present in the cells and/or its voltage output, to a more comprehensive testing of the battery's condition, namely its capacity for accumulating charge and any possible flaws affecting the battery's performance and security. It is an essential tool for all researchers involved in and battery development and the field of electrochemical sources of electricity as a whole. The innovative tester of low-capacity electrochemical sources developed by the institute supports up to eight independent channels for battery and accumulator tests with capacity up to 100 milliamperes per hour (mA/h) and has software for control, visualisation and data processing. It includes graphical presentation of the data, duration of the records of the cycles charge / discharge cycles up to 30 days with different currents value and reference voltage set in the tester by the software. The technical parameters are : - 3 different modes for every channel - the current modes are: charge from 0 to 35 milliamperes (mA) step 15 microamperes (uA); discharge from 0 to 35 milliamperes (mA) step 15 microamperes (uA) - reference Voltage U: 0-6 Volts, step 3 millivolts (mV) - multiplier: from 1 to 20 The research institute is looking for commercial agreements with technical assistance with companies as technical support and know-how from the developer will be ensured for integration of the device in their own solutions.
Type (e.g. company, R&D institution…), field of industry and Role of Partner Sought:
- Type of partner sought: the institute is looking industrial and R&D companies; - Specific area of activity of the partner: partner sought related to the battery, battery testing, low capacity electrochemical sources testing R&D or industry sectors; - Task to be performed: commercial agreements with technical assistance with companies willing to integrate the device in their own solutions, receiving the necessary technical assistance and know-how from the developer.
Stage of Development:
