MAHLE Aftermarket has introduced its battery diagnostic system 'E-HEALTH Charge' in the European market. The tool delivers reliable reports on the state of health and performance of electric vehicles' high-voltage batteries. 

With a maximum run time of 15 minutes, this system represents the fastest static battery diagnostic technology on the market, according to the company. The diagnostic system – consisting of the 'E-CHARGE' 20 battery charger and the 'E-HEALTH' app – combines charging and battery diagnostics into one workflow. 

The company claims that the diagnosis process functions regardless of make and model of the batteries. The product can also be used purely as a DC charger in addition to the diagnostic function.

"The demands on workshops are becoming more diverse. Battery electric drives, hybrids, internal combustion engines and hydrogen drives will form the drive mix of the future", said Philipp Grosse Kleimann, Member of the MAHLE Management Committee and Head of the Aftermarket business unit.

"With this newest addition to our BatteryPRO product line, E-HEALTH Charge, we are equipping independent workshops for the future and positioning ourselves even stronger as their partner", he added. 

Developed by the service and spare parts division of MAHLE, the system is for battery inspection agencies, fleet operators and workshops a higher degree of transparency when determining battery quality and vehicle value. Especially for EVs where the life expectancy of the high-voltage battery is dependent on a multitude of factor, this tool will be much help. 

Mechanics can easily determine the state of health of high-voltage batteries, with diagnosis performed easily upon stationary vehicles. The vehicle's battery is simultaneously charged during this process.

Georges Mourad, Director Global Service Solutions at MAHLE Aftermarket, commented, "With our battery diagnosis solution E-HEALTH Charge, we are pushing the boundaries of battery diagnostics and helping workshops to secure additional business volume beyond the internal combustion engine". 

For the evaluation of the data collected from both the charging device as well as the vehicle's OBD-Port, MAHLE is working in cooperation with volytica diagnostics. 

The battery specialist uploads the data to a secure cloud, analyzes the values relative to those from batteries of the same type, and finally compares the results against the original capacity of the vehicle model, according to MAHLE.
