Product Overview

IviCycle is a modular, high-performance, multi-channel battery test system for testing small R and D cells like coin cells to larger cylindrical and pouch cells. The IviCycle has 5 main modules with a maximum current of ±30 mA, ±200 mA, ±1 A, and ±3 A. Each module has either 4 or 8 channels with innovative simultaneous impedance capability on every channel. An IviCycle chassis can contain from 16 to 32 channels depending on the module configuration that you choose. Example configurations are: 16 channels (3 Amps) for pouch and cylindrical cell testing or 32 channels (200 mA) for coin cell testing.


Mix & match 4 modules with different current ratings. 4 or 8 channels per module.


Industry leading 18- and 24- bit resolution for current and voltage measurement.

Integrated EIS for simultaneous, independent measurements

Ivicycle Features

Ivicycle is a potent, innovative modular battery cycler tailored to the needs of battery testing from academia to industry. The high-performance IviCycle battery cycler features a notable series of standard specifications that match or exceed other available battery cyclers.


The IviCycle unit is built into a 19-inch rack mountable housing with space for 4 modules. Each module can be selected from one of the 5 different model options:

  • D1000 – 8 channels, ± 1A, -0.2V-5V (DC only)
  • C30 – 8 channels, ± 30mA, ± 10V
  • C200 – 8 channels, ± 200mA, ± 10V
  • C1000 – 4 channels, ± 1A, ± 5V
  • C3000 – 4 channels, ± 3A, ± 5V

The models are available either as a DC version (no EIS), or as an EIS version with impedance capability on each of the channels. So, it is possible to configure a custom system of between 16 and 32 channels per IviCycle. Multiple IviCycle systems can be controlled by one data acquisition computer for up to a maximum of 128 channels.

Application Areas:

IviCycle’s primary application area is battery performance evaluation.  Experiments available are galvanostatic cyclic charge-discharge, capacity versus cycle number, galvanostatic intermittent titration technique, and intermittent current interrupt technique. Since Ivicycle has multiple current ranges and can function as a potentiostat and a galvanostat, it is also suitable for high-throughput electrochemical testing of identical samples for quality control.

Product Features

Unique Solution:

The Ivium IviCycle battery cycler offers a unique solution with both DC and EIS measurement options with the possibility to mix-and-match both low and high current channel modules to offer more flexibility, all controlled from the same software platform.


Customers can configure a system to meet their needs with channels suitable for small battery test cells and higher current channels for larger pouch and cylindrical cells. For example, two C200 modules with eight channels per module and two C3000 modules with four channels per module giving a total of 24 channels per chassis


The Ivicycle models have a wide applied voltage range of up to 10 V with a resolution of 80 µV and an impressive minimum voltage measurement down to 0.6 µV.  The Ivicycle models also have current ranges up to 6 decades and a remarkable current measurement resolution as low as 0.3 pA (picoamps).  The impressive resolution of these systems allows complex precision experiments like high-precision coulometry and differential capacity analysis to be undertaken. 


The Ivicycle modules have industry-leading 18 or 24-bit resolution for current and voltage measurements. This translates into high-accuracy results.  Signal acquisition rates are up to 100,000 samples per second. With a bandwidth greater than 500 kHz, fast signal changes (rise times) are standard, allowing for fast pulse response times.  Incorporated into the software are unique features like intuitive adjustable sampling time and safety limits for protection of your batteries from over- and under-voltage.

Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy is available on every channel for simultaneous, independent impedance measurements with embedded EIS technology, not multiplexed across several channels.  The frequency range is 10 µHz to 20 kHz offering identical quality measurements like any Ivium research-grade potentiostat. The availability of EIS testing enables the evaluation of the battery’s state of charge and state of health. Embedded EIS on every channel allows for fast precise measurements of the batteries SoC and or SOH without the drawbacks of shared EIS systems EIS measurements can be performed independently and simultaneously on multiple channels without delay speeding up your tests without degrading your measurements

Data Security:

Every IviCycle system incorporates a µDataSecure module that can save up to 20 million points per channel independently from the computer. This ensures that if there is a communication loss or a computer crash/update, the measurement will continue, and data will not be lost. This provides peace of mind for long-duration, high-throughput testing.

The µDataSecure module also allows for remote access via a Local Area Network (LAN). This allows for multiple researchers to conduct experiments on the same instrument at the same time. A connection can also be made via a USB cable.

Dedicated battery testing software allows for the design of complicated battery testing protocols.  Cycliscan acquisition and IviLab analysis software complement each other to offer a powerful platform for your studies.  Whether performing R&D or quality control, your needs are covered.  In addition, you have access to a full suite of standard electrochemical experiments like cyclic voltammetry, linear sweep voltammetry, and pulse techniques.
