The
ASC

Exploit the potential of your all solid-state battery

All solid-state batteries are a promising technology, leading to unprecedented levels of energy density and safety. However, research with these innovative battery systems requires a new approach for testing equipment. At Sphere, we have developed the ASC to enable innovative research in your lab and ensuring the best results four your experiments.

Precise adjustment of the stacking pressure

Our ASC-T enables precise, long term control and monitoring of the mechanical pressure applied to your battery materials. The adjustable screw system,  makes it easy to build up dense All Solid-State Batteries, layer by layer.

+

Accurate temperature control

The ASC-T measures the temperature where it is critical – close to the tested materials. This enables accurate temperature monitoring and adjustment for true results. With heating up to 200°C (inside of the cell) you can densify your materials and understand the impact of temperature and pressure on your measurements.

Hermetically sealed - fixed distance between electrodes

The ASC-Airtight (ASC-A) is made to test air sensitive materials outside the glove box under mechanical compression. With a simple screw system, you can apply pressure up to 4 ton/cm² on your stack combination.
The ASC-Airtight can be combined with the ASC frame for live pressure monitoring, allowing you to monitor the volume expansion and pressure in your stack throughout the tests.

Dynamic pressure compensation

In addition to the functionality of the ASC-A, the ASC-Airtight Dynamic (ASC-AD) offers an active pressure balancing system. When you set the internal pressure on the material stack, the dynamic pressure balancing system inside the cell will balance out any expansion or contraction of the tested materials.

Ultimate control

The stacking pressure can be monitored lived during your experiment and logged via the control box delivered with the cell. Additionally, the applied temperature can be controlled through the same box.
