Mobility

Measurement technology for automotives and mobility

The development of new vehicles poses multiple test and measurement challenges: reducing the emissions and fuel consumption of conventional internal combustion engines, preparing new engines for full scale production, development of alternative (hybrid/electric) drive systems and the reduction of vehicle weight through intelligent design and new materials.

Our Automotive & Mobility test and measurement solutions

We offer innovative and future-proof data acquisition and I/O measurement solutions. Constant high quality is of the utmost importance in the manufacture of vehicles and components. Applications range from the simple monitoring of joining processes through analysis of force/displacement curves to end-of-line tests of entire assemblies. The procedure always focuses on the complete test including the sequential logic and control.

Intelligent controllers with all inclusive technology

Our intelligent controllers combine measurement technology with stand alone automation systems, including individual human-machine interfacing (HMI) that is ‘ built-in’.

  • Fail-safe measurement of all relevant parameters such as temperature, pressure, speed, torque, etc.
  • Electrically isolated signal inputs and synchronous acquisition
  • Secure and real-time data transfer  (EtherCAT, Profibus-DP)
  • Open interfaces to any automation system
Hybrid & Electric
  • Fuel cells, hybrid, electric drive, battery test, charging, discharging, short-circuiting, thermal loading, cell and total stress
  • Measurement modules for voltages of 100 mV to 1200 V
  • Non-isolated thermocouples or voltages with continuous isolation of 1200 VDC, 1000 VDC CAT II, 600 VDC CAT III, test voltage 5000 VDC
  • High EMC/RFI immunity
Durability Testing
  • Combined measurement and control of a single component or a complete subsystem/vehicle
  • Acquisition of material stresses using strain gauges in full-, half- and quarter-bridge (DC or carrier frequency) configurations, inductive transducers, LVDT, IEPE sensors and Pt100
  • Synchronous measurements, precise and conditioned up to 100 kHz per channel

Monitoring the opening and closing operations of large lock-gates/sluices by measuring and monitoring the force required in the hydraulic drives. This enables foreign objects to be detected within the area of the gates.

Railroads

Regular monitoring of railroad track is carried out by means of special test runs. The relevant parameters, particularly vibrations, forces and displacement are continuously measured and recorded. Simultaneous detection of positioning data (GPS) enables the exact location of identified damage.

Passenger transportation

Driverless trains are being increasingly used for short-haul transportation routes, e.g. airport shuttles, subways. For reasons of safety, comfort and liability, critical measurements such as acceleration and force data must be continuously recorded on all journeys and sent via modem to a central server after each trip.
