Cincinnati Sub-Zero (CSZ) was selected as the main Environmental Test Chamber Supplier for the new General Motors (GM) Battery Test Lab. The facility tests battery packs, energy cells and modules.
A total of 34 environmental test chambers were sold to GM including (6) modular walk in chambers, (12) welded walk-in chambers and (16) temperature/humidity cycling chambers for hot and cold temperature & humidity testing. A significant amount of testing is being applied to the lithium ion battery pack for their new electric Chevrolet Volt which is planned to be launched in November 2010. The walk-in chambers can hold up to four Volt battery packs at time and the smaller test chambers can hold 2 battery packs. Using environmental chambers helps significantly reduce their testing time.
CSZ continues to help our customers create a cleaner environment & develop alternative energy saving products by providing environmental chambers for R&D & reliability testing.
