µV measured at 800 V potential
The development of hybrid and electric vehicles presents new measurement challenges. One is the highly accurate measurement of very small signals in high-lying potentials, such as temperatures of components along the electrical drive train: e.g., the battery, motor, switches and connectors.
imc Meßsysteme GmbH (manufacturer), along with their Indian partner ATS, have developed a solution—the imc HISO-8 measurement amplifier. It allows low voltages and temperatures to be measured at high potential levels of up to 800 volts. In addition, derivatives of the amplifier allow for high-voltage, current and power measurements up to 1000 V.
These new measurement amplifiers are particularly well-suited for use in imc’s innovative platform, the imc CRONOSflex. This system, with its flexible, frameless design, allows for a configuration that can either be centralized or distributed independently. When used in combination with other imc universal precision measurement modules, all relevant physical and electrical vehicle data can easily be recorded.
An ideal solution for vehicle testing, or for use on the test stand, the system can acquire signals up to 100 kSample/channel, and support an aggregate sampling rate of up to 2 MSample/s with additional online data correlation, analyzing, reduction and saving.
imc measurement systems are particularly productive when using the corresponding software platform, imc STUDIO. The entire system requires no programming of any kind and is ready for immediate use. The system can support the user with simple data collection on control and regulation tasks, all the way up to the automation of complete test stands with integrated HiL-simulation.
