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. We at Sphere have developed the ASC – to enable this crucial research in your lab ensuring 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 simple screw adjustment system, which is infinitely adjustable, makes it also 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 an 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 density on your measurements.

Hermetically sealed - fixed distance between electrodes

The ASC-Airtight (ASC-A) is made to test air sensitive materials outside of the glove box under mechanical compression. With a simple screwing system you can apply a 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 follow the volume expansion and pressure in your stack during the tests.

Dynamic pressure compensation

In addition to the functionalities 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 to a certain value, 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 controled through the same box.
