Gantner Instruments is involved in numerous applications for ECE R38.3 (battery transport test), ECE R100 (tests for homologation for traction batteries), and ISO 12405 (performance tests on battery systems). The flexible and highly accurate Q.series X system can measure and process voltages in the low-voltage range up to the high-voltage range ±1500V. The measurement signals are all synchronous, regardless of measuring voltages, temperatures, currents, vibrations, shock, and many other variables.
