Capacitor TesterPFX2400 Series
Capacitor Tester For EDLC (Electric Double Layer Capacitor)
The Capacitor Tester PFX2400 Series is dedicated to design charge/discharge testers for electric double layer capacitors. The voltage rating is 5V, targeting single-cell batteries, and a lineup of 4 models is available: 5A/12-ch, 35A/4-ch, 70A/2-ch, and 140A/1-ch. In recent years, the electric double layer capacitor has been increasing its capacity, and it can be used in electric automobiles as power sources for starting the engine and for assistance during acceleration. Wider use of these capacitors is expected as a new energy source for raising automobile fuel economy and also improving exhaust quality. The Capacitor Tester PFX 2400 Series meets the need for more advanced and specialized tests related to the two key issues facing the wider use of electric double layer capacitors: power storage technologies and power management (energy optimization).
The Charge-Discharge mode for the diverse applications
Charging method (Constant Current – Constant Voltage / Constant Current / Constant Power / Step ) Discharge method (Constant Current – Constant Voltage / Constant Current / Constant Power / Step )
The PFX2400 controls to keep constant of the internal loss. While in the charging state, and it realizes the low power consumption.
High-speed data sampling
Adopting the LAN communication interface realizes the simultaneous data sampling of the current and voltage.
Wide range of the AC input
The PFX2400 can be used at the location from the benchtop to the production line wherever the input power supply of 100 Vac to 240 Vac is provided.
Fully independent channel operations
The absolute independence of operations on all channels allow you to conduct the combined testing of the different characteristics of EDLC’s.In consideration of synchronization with a thermostatic chamber, a synchronization function has been provided which performs control to extend the rest time.
The dedicated software applies to the wide versatility of testings.
Optional application software (SD008-PFX2400) is required to operate the PFX2400 Series.The test pattern of the “JIS D 1401” and “JIS C 5160” has been provided in the software, so you can easily set and execute the test conditions of the capacitor complied to the JIS standard.
