In the dynamic field of battery technology, maintaining quality and safety is crucial. As a leader in testing and certification, we have worked with various firms to validate their battery solutions. This article shares two case studies demonstrating how our labs have assisted companies in certifying their battery products’ quality and safety.
CASE STUDY 1: ADVANCING LITHIUM BATTERY PACK MOBILITY CLIENT:
A manufacturer aiming to enter the global market with their lithium battery packs.
Challenge: The objective was to develop heavy battery packs adhering to the rigorous safety and regulatory standards of Canada, the U.S.A., and the European Union. The need was for a reliable partner to confirm the safety and reliability of their battery packs, essential for their target market.
Solution: Our lab performed multiple tests on these battery packs, including overcharge protection, short-circuit, free-fall, altitude, vibration, and the demanding 150G, 6ms shock test, among others. We verified that the batteries conformed to industry safety and performance standards, tailored to their specific use and market requirements.
Outcome: After successful testing and compliance with necessary standards, the manufacturer was granted the cLCus Mark authorization. This bolstered their confidence in the quality and safety of their battery packs, enabling market entry and establishing their reputation in the Lithium Battery Pack sector.
CASE STUDY 2: POWERING RENEWABLE ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEMS FOR THE MARINE INDUSTRY CLIENT:
A renewable energy firm specializing in storage systems, focusing on the marine industry.
Challenge: The client was developing advanced lithium-ion battery systems for renewable energy storage, needing validation for industry standards compliance and durability against daily cycling, including a cooling system for safety.
Solution: Our lab subjected these battery systems to extreme heat, the thermal puncture test, and short-circuit testing to ensure endurance without initiating runaway and efficient fume ventilation.
Outcome: The tests allowed the client to demonstrate their batteries’ durability and safety for marine energy storage systems, leading to increased funding and partnerships, and boosting renewable energy solutions deployment.
This table provides a succinct overview of the key outcomes from the case studies, emphasizing the impact of thorough testing and certification in the battery industry.
