Using BINDER chambers for testing in Enerlab 4.0


  • The exteriors of the storage devices are inspected first, then optical and scanning electron microscopes are used to investigate their interiors.
  • Findings are obtained through aging processes that have an impact on both a structural and chemical level. The data is transferred to a digital twin that the scientists can age virtually.
  • Six months of continuous operation are required to yield this data, which can then be used to simulate a period of three to five years.

Customer requirements:

  • Small footprint – to fit into a small installation area
  • Space-saving solution available
  • Customized solutions available, with features such as access ports
  • Door-locking mechanism
  • Heated pressure relief flap
  • Door with window
  • Interior illumination
