COVID-19 STATEMENT: We are open for business and our objective is for everyone to remain safe with minimum disruption.

Our aim is for all promised delivery dates to be met however, in some circumstances it may be necessary to adjust some of these dates.

We remain committed in communicating fully with you to keep you updated at all times.

We can provide information and literature on solutions that may benefit any upcoming projects therefore please do not hesitate to contact us.

High Current Probes

The current developments in electromobility and the rapidly growing field of battery production require completely new contact solutions.

We can provide test solutions used for the integrated temperature measurement for testing, charging and discharging of: 

  • Batteries

  • Battery Cells

  • Li-ion Energy Storages

Our contacting solutions are ideal for testing, charging and discharging different cell types. Examples are shown below:

Contact solutions up to 600 A

The new modular designed contact block HSP600 allows applications with up to 600 A continuous current. This contact block was developed especially for contacting prismatic cells and pouch cells and can be equipped with sense contacts and/or temperature sensors according to customer requirements.

Contact solutions of cylindrical cells up to 100 A

Especially for contacting cylindrical cells the high current block HSP862 was developed. This block has three spring-loaded scratch contacts and one sense pin and can allow currents up to 100A.  

Coaxial high current probe up to 300 A

Especially for contacting during the formation of battery cells, for incoming inspection and for the end-of-line test, the coaxial high-current probe HSP804 was developed. It is also of modular design and can be equipped with two sense pins, with temperature sensor or with a connection for compressed air cooling.

Scratch principle for low contact resistances

An important basis for optimal contacting at high currents is an extremely low contact resistance to the test item. This is realized by a scratch contact, which causes a defined scratch movement on the contacted surface and thus achieves best results especially with contaminated or oxidized surfaces. The scratch solution is particularly suitable for contacting battery cells, as the typical aluminum current collector on the cathode side can be reliably contacted. In particular, the occurrence of a wetting current effect can thus be avoided. This ensures reproducible good contacting results.

The outstanding results regarding the current carrying capacity of these contacts were confirmed by an extensive investigation.

View the HSP869 series for more information. 

Spring-loaded temperature sensors

For monitoring the temperature directly at the conductor, we can offer a wide range of spring-loaded temperature sensors. These sensors are so slim that they can even be integrated in various contacting units, for example in the contact block up to 600 A or even in coaxial high current contact probes with an internal pin.
