Electrode Coat Weight Gauging of Anode and Cathode for Lithium Ion Batteries

NDC’s new Photon Sensor is optimized for lithium ion batteries, providing a new level of performance in coat weight measurement accuracy and fine detail of the coating flatness of aluminum and copper foil substrates.

  • Highest Accuracy and Performance – compared to traditional Beta (nuclear) sensors, coat weight measurement accuracy is 7 to 10 times better for cathode and 4 times better for anode
  • Small Spot Size – provides excellent flatness measurement, detailed resolution of high/low streaks and quality indication of leading bead and trailing edges
  • High Resolution - The Photon sensors energy is naturally focused to a small measurement footprint without the need for heavy collimation. This provides excellent visibility of the coating uniformity with detailed resolution of the coating edges (head and tail patch, shim zone) as well as ,high/low streaks.
  • Highly Versatile – designed for intermittent patch, stripe/zone and continuous coating lines
  • Non-Nuclear Technology – maintains level performance compared to Beta sensors that decay over time
  • Flexible – for single-pass coating lines, can be used to measure both total and coating weight
  • Preeminent Support – all systems are backed by NDC's dedicated worldwide customer service organization available 24-7 via myNDC cloud service

Product Details

Experience a New Level in Coat Weight Gauging for Lithium Ion Batteries

Ideally suited for anode and cathode coating lines, this photon transmission sensor brings a new level of performance and visibility for measuring the coating weight applied to aluminum and copper foil substrates.

Two photon sensors are available with different streak detection capabilities: 

  • The high-resolution 312B-N-LIB offers excellent narrow streak resolution and is suitable for most measurement applications. 
  • The ultra-high resolution 312B-XN-LIB offers visibility of the coating and narrow streak resolution down to 0.5 mm.
