Acculon Energy

Prototyping

By outsourcing the prototyping phase of their battery module or pack development, our clients benefit from Acculon’s expertise in translating design concepts and solutions into functional prototypes. Acculon leverages its resources, equipment, and experience to produce prototypes that closely represent the final battery module or pack. This collaborative prototyping process helps our clients assess the design’s feasibility, performance, and compatibility, ensuring that any necessary adjustments or enhancements are made before proceeding to full-scale production.

Proof of Concept

Prototyping helps to validate the feasibility of the battery pack design concept. Acculon creates an initial prototype that demonstrates the basic functionality and key features of the design. This allows our clients to visually inspect and assess the design’s compatibility with their application requirements.

Functional Testing

Prototypes are used to perform functional testing, verifying that the battery pack operates as intended. The Acculon team ensures that the prototype incorporates the necessary electrical connections, safety features, and control systems to enable basic functionality. This testing phase helps identify any design flaws, performance issues, or compatibility concerns early in the development process.

Performance Evaluation

Prototypes are evaluated to assess the performance characteristics of the battery module or pack design. This includes measuring parameters such as energy capacity, voltage output, power delivery, and efficiency. Performance evaluation helps our clients gauge whether the prototype meets their specified requirements and performance targets.

FROM
START
to SCALE

Prototyping allows our engineers to test and validate design concepts, identify potential issues, and refine their solutions before mass production. It enables iterative improvements, ensuring that battery packs meet performance, safety, and efficiency requirements. By rapidly iterating and refining prototypes, we can push the boundaries of battery technology, optimizing factors such as energy density, charge/discharge rates, and lifespan.

Through Acculon’s experience, expertise, and pooled creativity, the journey to an efficient and sustainable energy storage future is taking shape.

Design Optimization

Prototyping allows for design optimizations based on the feedback received from the testing and evaluation process. The Acculon team and the client collaborate to identify areas for improvement or customization. Iterative prototyping helps refine the design, addressing any shortcomings or issues identified during testing, and enhancing overall performance and reliability.

Mechanical and Physical Validation

Prototypes are assessed for mechanical integrity, physical durability, and compatibility with the intended application. The Acculon team ensures that the prototype is structurally sound, able to withstand environmental conditions, and suitable for the desired installation and integration requirements. This validation helps confirm that the battery module or pack can withstand the expected stresses and demands in the target application.

Iterative Refinement

Prototyping often involves multiple iterations and refinements (often referred to as A Samples, B Samples, and C or production-intent Samples). Based on the feedback from the client and the findings from the testing and evaluation process, the Acculon team iteratively modifies the prototype, making necessary adjustments to address identified issues and enhance performance. This iterative refinement ensures that the final battery module or pack design is optimized and aligned with the client’s requirements.

Documentation and Reporting

Throughout the prototyping phase, Acculon documents the details of each prototype, including design modifications, test results, and performance observations. We provide comprehensive reports to the client, highlighting the findings and recommendations for further improvement or finalization of the design.
