NH Research 9210 Series Single Channel Battery Charge / Discharge Test System

NH Research 9210 Series Single Channel Battery Charge / Discharge Test System

Product Overview:

  • Smaller footprint makes it easier to move within a lab (roughly half the size of the 9200)
  • Custom waveform/profile generation
  • Sub-mS voltage, current & mode transition times
  • Built-in digital measurements with charting & scope displays
  • Internal controller with software & connections for an external monitor & keyboard
  • Expandable from 12 to 252kW with 40, 120, or 600V bi-directional DC loads
  • Regenerative, 87% efficiency of discharge power returned to AC mains
  • Multiple safety layers to protect battery being tested
  • Battery emulation & burn-in applications
  • Create, run, monitor, chart & report UUT profiles without writing any code



The Single Channel Battery Test System (9210 Series) further extends its 9200 family of high-power battery charge/discharge test systems, which are especially suitable for xEV electric vehicle and grid storage battery cycling as well as drive-cycle simulations and grid-energy simulations.

Like the successful 9200 systems, the new single module test system (9210) utilizes any of the 40V, 120V, or 600V modular, independent 12-kilowatt DC power modules which enable testing of a number of smaller batteries, each with a different test plan, power level and start/stop times. The smaller footprint makes it easier to move within a laboratory and/or manufacturing, allowing the tester to be brought to the engineer’s workspace.


  • Battery emulation using OCV & series resistance
  • Designed for testing &mp: emulating all battery chemistries
    • Automatic energy integration (full & 1/2 cycle)
    • Multiple safety layers to protect UUT
  • Software tools to shorten test development time


  • Regenerative, returns greater than 87% of power to the facility, which provides significant electrical savings.
  • Modular – full function tester per channel design
  • Parallels for high power testing (up to 252kW)
  • Safely simulate and emulate “Real World” conditions
    • Sub-mS voltage, current, & mode transition times
    • Emulate over/under charged batteries
    • Safely emulate BMS & battery failures
  • Small footprint for easy movement
