Read news about BaSyTec, our products and our participation in conferences and fairs.
There is a new app note showing how to use the CAN interface with BaSyTec Battery Test Systems:
From now all new software releases will be signed:
From now we do have Pt100/4W sensors with only 3mm diameter:
We did create a document showing all BaSyTec software interfaces and their application:
That will also be part of the manual in the future.
As announced, we have a new converters board. It will be used in all test system series except CTS and XCTS and has the following new features:
- 70V possible for MDS or GSM testers
- new mixed D-Sub battery connector
- NTC temperature input at the battery connector
- parallel option
- second current range option
- former AUX3/AUX4 voltage inputs are skipped
That is independent of the test system series, so also for our old MDS, GSM and LPS,
Here is an image of the first unit:
still with the old marking.
As MDS, GSM and LPS do not differentiate any more from customers sight we do call all 3 LPS-HR today. So all MDS, GSM and LPS are replaced by the LPS-HR now.
Altough our software does not support the 24Bit today the new converters have advantages: much less noise and more accuracy (but we’d write that in the datasheets after we got some experience with it, not today). As we will implement our new EIS hardware in the software first the 24Bit feature will take at least one year from now.
The product datasheets have been updated accordingly – see products
We expect to deliver the first products in the second quarter of 2023. The prices won’t change because of that, so the old price lists are still valid.
For more than 20 years it has been a typical part of our products (except CTS/XCTS), now we do retire it:
The orange connector.
As we have reworked our oldest module (the so-called “Analog”), the orange connector has been replaced by a mixed D-SUB:
We plan to change during the second quarter of 2023.
Of course not only the connector has been changed but also many features have been added.
More on that briefly.
We wish you all merry christmas and a happy new year!
Not really new but seems as many of you did not find the functionality in the BaSyTec Software since now.
Many actual fast charge methods require a lookup table giving the max. charge current dependent of SOC and temperature.
Things like that can be realized in the BaSyTec Software with the OSI_Table.dll.
You may find the dll on our software download page or your BaSyTec USB stick.
The documentation is in the third appendix of the BaSyTec Software manual.
We are closed from 24.12.2021 till 9.1.2022.
We have a new option for the CTS series: an additional reference voltage input per channel.
The hardware will measure the voltage between Ref and Sense+, will be Urp in the software.
Urn is calculated as Urp-U.
The option is available only for new systems, it cannot be retrofitted into existing ones.
BaSyTec GmbH will exhibit at the BATTERY EXPERTS FORUM 2020 in Frankfurt/Main which is from Tuesday 29.09.2020 till Thursday 1.10.2020.
The BaSyTec GmbH company is getting 20 years old this year. The first company agreement has been signed on July 5th 1999 and has been registered on September 7th 1999.
The BaSyTec GmbH has been founded by Prof. Dr. Andreas Jossen, Dr. René Groiß and Volker Späth, all 3 working at the ZSW in Ulm at that time.
Today about 1700 battery test systems have been built (excl. the BCT series).
We have to change our phone provider so there may be problems to reach us by phone on Monday, 20.05.2019.

This month we successfully got the recertification of our quality management system according to ISO 9001:2015.
Here is the certificate
This week we got the BaSyTec system with serial number 1 for calibration. It is running for 20 years without any repairs now and could still be operated with the actual software. Also upgrades would be possible, for example on our latest CPU generation.
If you have checked the XCTS MKII image carefully you may have realized: There is a new CPU, our third generation:
- Generation N, 1999, Single Core @25MHz, 2MB RAM, 3mm LED
- Generation X, 2006, Single Core @266MHz, 32MB (later128MB) RAM, 5mm LED
- Generation C, 2018, Quad Core @1.9GHz, 4GB RAM, RJ45 on front
After the big success of our “old” XCTS with 25 or 50A the “new” XCTS MKII with 40, 60 or 80A is available now.
The XCTS MKII is an enhancement of the “old” XCTS. Changes are:
- more current and power
- much better precision (up to 1mA)
- all variants max. 6V
- power limitation at higher voltage
- all variants have gold plated D-SUB connectors
As our old homepage was outdated and not supporting mobile devices, we decided to update our homepage. We hope that it is user friendly and the presentation is clearly done. If you have further ideas, please contact us by email.
