Rogers and Arbin have provided testing equipment for energy storage applications large and small for over 25 years and, with a decade of experience, Rogers is uniquely qualified to highlight the ever-shifting nature of that industry and its demands.
In particular, cutting-edge innovations like electric vehicles and more have driven a need for adaptation in the testing industry that helps solutions keep paces with new challenges.
Arbin’s battery test equipment is at the forefront of the industry, creating high-precision testing methods that help researchers around the world develop new battery materials designed to stand up to the durability and longevity demands of new industries like electric vehicles and grid storage.
“Instead of a battery needing to last for (1,000-2,000) cycles and last for one or two years, like in your phone, an electric vehicle battery needs to last 10 years or more, and it might need to last tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of cycles,” Rogers said. “(It’s the same for) grid storage applications.”
To help push the envelope on testing processes that shorten development time and encourage high precision, temperature management and more, Arbin teamed up with Ford Motors and Sandia National Lab to develop new, state-of-the-art testing equipment prepared for these modern challenges.
It’s a simple concept, Rogers said – not all test equipment is created equal, and Arbin is committed to exemplifying the best of the best.
