Reliably perform insulation resistance testing of battery cells before the electrolyte filling in order to detect metal contaminants and separator damage. This test allows fast detection of insulation faults between battery diodes to help ensure a long battery life and battery safety.
Detect metal contaminants and separator damage by measuring insulation resistance before filling the electrolyte to ensure that the positive and negative electrodes of the battery are reliably isolated from each other. Contamination and separator tear are the primary causes for insufficient insulation resistance.
Insulation Tester ST5520 has been specifically designed to measure high resistance values and is used to measure the insulation resistance of battery cells. Testing before the electrolyte has been filled inside is important to detect faulty cells early and reduce the risk of damage for later tests with high voltage.
The contact check function enables to reliably determine if the test probe is in correct contact with the electrode before the test is run. Fast measurement of insulation resistance between battery electrodes without false readings due to probing faults is highly contributing to production efficiency.
