Battery Testing Chambers – Explosion-Proof (EP Series)

Russells’ Explosion-Proof Test Chambers have built-in safety features that will prevent the chamber from causing any sparking. These chambers offer steady state temperature and temperature/humidity tests, cycling temperature/humidity tests, temperature ranges from -70C to +177C, and humidity ranges from 10-95%RH.

About Explosion Proof Chambers for Lithium Ion Battery Testing

The National Electrical Code (NEC) defines hazardous locations as those areas “where fire or explosion hazards may exist due to flammable gases or vapors, flammable liquids, combustible dust, or ignitable fibers or flyings.”
