Data Acquisition Solutions for Electric Vehicle Testing
For hybrid electric (HEV) and all-electric vehicle (EV), a high-voltage bus supplied by a large battery pack drives the electric powertrain. Most of the components are bidirectional, allowing power to go from the battery to the inverter, which turns the motor moving the vehicle or driving power back through the inverter and charging the battery when braking. Each step of this powertrain requires thorough testing to maximize energy efficiency for the HEV/EV.
Gantner Instruments’ bestselling data acquisition product line, the Q.series X, has been extended to include a variety of high-voltage isolation measurement modules that combine precise and stable signal conditioning with safe electrical isolation up to 5000 VDC peak and 1200 VDC continuously. The range of modules supports various measurement inputs for voltage, current, RTD, thermocouple, IEPE, and strain gage sensors with data sampling up to 100 kHz.
