Modularity, performance, power and flexibility
BioLogic’s battery cycler line-up is made up of two complementary ranges of instruments, the high throughput BCS-800 Series battery cyclers and the R&D grade MPG-200 Series test stations.
The result is a powerful, modular system suitable for any organization specializing in battery testing and research, from industry to academia, quality control to certification.
High-precision, highly-stable battery cyclers that feature advanced EC techniques, five electrode connections and powerful analysis tools. MPG Battery Testers give users real reference electrode management, making them perfect instruments for research and development applications.
The MPG series: Precision, stability and power – perfect for in-house R&D or academia
The MPG-200 series is a high-end battery tester series made of two core configurations. The MPG-2 features 16 independent channels at 100 mA, whereas the MPG-205 offers eight 5 A channels. Both MPG battery cyclers are available with or without EIS capabilities.
The power of a high-end potentiostat/galvanostat, the simplicity of a battery cycler
MPG-200 series battery cyclers’ high-end specification has been designed to address the most demanding battery testing needs possible.
Equipped with five leads to connect to batteries with reference electrodes, the MPG-2 features 16 channels with a maximum current of +- 100 mA per channel, its voltage range of +- 10 V makes it suitable for any cell (half, full, symmetrical) configuration.
The MPG-205 features 8 channels at ± 5A. With its voltage range from -2 to + 9 V, this cycler has four electrode connections.
Both units share a 200 µs time-base/sampling rate, a remarkable 800 pA current resolution, and their dynamic range can lower their voltage resolution down to 5 µV.
Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) is available as an option and can run simultaneously on every channel from 20 kHz to 10 µHz.
Each channel can be equipped with a Pt-100 probe for temperature measurements and can interface external devices through analog and digital input/output.
Both units can be stacked in a five-position rack, giving users total autonomy to develop a bespoke system to perfectly fit their needs.
Perfectly suited for energy applications
MPG-200 series instruments feature a comprehensive set of battery-specific and general electrochemistry techniques and analysis tools including:
• Linear Sweep Voltammetry
• Differential Coulometry (dQ/dV)
• High Precision Coulometry (HPC)
• Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS)
• Capacity slippage
• User profile
• Pulse techniques
EC-Lab: The benchmark for control software
MPGs are supplied with EC-Lab® software, free of charge. This powerful software package, often referred to as the benchmark interface for electrochemistry is especially suited to battery and supercapacitor applications. A truly comprehensive package, EC-Lab™ covers every step of the battery testing process from test plan design through to test monitoring and analysis.
The graphic package provided with the EC-Lab® software includes advanced analysis and fitting tools (Z Fit). Some process functions, such as “Capacity & Energy per cycle” or “Constant Power Protocol Summary“ help the user calculate additional variables during successive cycles, such as:
- Charge/discharge capacity
- Dynamic resistance
