NETZSCH INSTRUMENT NORTH AMERICA LLC: Differential Scanning Calorimeter
This company has released a new high-temperature coin cell module on the MMC 274 Nexus®. Coin cells are directly used in many consumer products, and can be a stepping stone in large battery development. Many parameters can influence the performance of rechargeable coin cell, including temperature and cycling conditions.
“It is important for the battery community to know the heat generation during charging/discharging cycles in order to understand the cell energy efficiency and improve cell performance, lifetime, and safety,” said Peter Ralbovsky, calorimetry expert at NETZSCH.
The new differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) is intended for coin cell battery studies and can be coupled with a fully featured battery analyzer. Users can perform in-situ charge/discharge tests in isothermal mode to measure battery performance and efficiency. In temperature scanning mode, the user can study cell safety and decomposition thermodynamics and kinetics up to 300°C.
