SAN DIEGO, Sept. 1, 2015 – Advanced Test Equipment Rentals (ATEC) and NH Research, Inc. (NHR) today announced an agreement for ATEC as an authorized rental partner of the NHR 9200 Battery Test System. The 9200 provides Automated Characterization, Power Cycling & Life-Cycle Testing of Battery Modules & Packs. NHR is a leader in power electronics test instruments and complete turn-key test systems for universities, military, and companies involved in space, defense, battery manufacturing/research and other applications. ATEC is a worldwide leading rental company of test equipment for military, defense, aerospace, communications, semiconductor, consumer electronics and many other sectors, and now the only NHR authorized rental partner to provide high-power battery charge/discharge test systems.
The NHR 9200 Battery Test System is designed for all battery chemistries including lead-acid, nickel-cadmium and lithium-ion.

ATEC provides companies the opportunity to use the latest technologies in test and measurement equipment for their specific tests through renting equipment on short- and long-term basis, saving companies time and money. The experienced technical and customer support staff helps provide the knowledge, equipment and solutions customers need to perform their tests and ATEC also offers many other NHR products, including standalone AC and DC loads, and power supplies.
