Battery Test Chambers

Our battery test chambers are equipped with safety features conforming to industry safety standards including EUCAR, enabling testing to a variety of conditions and specifications including extreme temperature cycling, humidity, vibration, and or altitude. Russells Technical Products battery test chambers are used in a wide range of battery testing applications including lithium ion, battery packs, lead acid batteries, modules and others. Whether you need a reach-in chamber for smaller applications, or a walk-in or complete drive-in system, our battery test chambers are designed for safety to your exact specifications.

About Battery Test Chambers

Our battery test chambers are compatible with testing EV battery packs and complete systems, or smaller individual cells and modules. Our battery test systems for electrical energy storage conform to industry safety standards, giving you piece of mind in safe testing practices for your facilities and personnel. Because failure of battery systems can occur during temperature and humidity testing, our battery test chambers are equipped with the safety features relative to the specific EUCAR hazard safety level in your testing. Contact us today for more details and allow our experienced team guide you to the right battery testing solution.
