Keysight launches battery test system using high voltage SiC technology

Keysight Technologies has announced a new test system for high-voltage battery packs (up to 1,500 volts). The Scienlab SL1700A Series uses silicon carbide (SiC) technology, which Keysight says will boost efficiency and energy recovery. 

The system gives users control of the climate chamber, conditioning of the device under test, and the battery management system. Analysis tools built into the system allow for direct evaluation of data and eliminate the need for post-processing.

“Our next-generation battery pack test systems based on high-voltage SiC technology provide more power and higher voltages in less space, compared to similar systems,” said Michael Schugt, Keysight Technology Director.
