  • Measure high currents with high accuracy

  • This product family, you have access to a wide variety of solutions for current, voltage and temperature measurement. Applicable in various environments and applications The IAS is a full analog type sensor without digital interface, making it smaller and also a "low cost" solution. The application of this sensor are automotive, energy management and power measurement standard. The flexibility in parameter choice momentary power peaks measured from 800 A (100 ms) with an accuracy of 20mA The IPC module is used for "high speed" phase / current measurement shunt basis. Any problems with the management of heavy engines then this module is an ideal way to gain insight into the process. As an additional module provides the overcurrent protection with a response time of to appr. ± 1500 A with an accuracy of 50. These modules enable you to perform electrical current-, voltage- and temperature measurements with a high resolution. Another application are highly accurate temperature measerements based on thermocouples. Depending on the sensor ranging from -200°C up to 1200°C. You can not only perform measurements but you can also store, process and graphically display the measurement results. Isabellenhütte has years of experience in the above techniques and can work with you to develop custom solutions. Are you workinkg on an application where you need to accurately measure high current?

    Using data sheets correctly when selecting resistors.

    When selecting a resistor for your application, there is more to bear in mind than you might think. In order to make a preliminary choice using a product data sheet, developers need certain background information and have to calculate some dimensions themselves. We herewith show how to correctly use a data sheet...

  • Current and voltage measurement in and around hybrid and electric drives

    No matter if you're designing a hybrid, electric or fuel cell powered application - a new development's sustainability always depends on the reliability in every-day use and therefore on controlling its energy flow and consumption permanently. Not every method for measuring current and voltage is able to fulfill each of the difficult requirements. Isabellenhütte has developed the current and voltage measuring module IVT for DC applications in alternative drive concepts based on its experience in the area of car battery management.



  • Low profile braking resistor, optimized design for high energy to heat conversion

    When designing a motor controller, which has to be as compact as possible, every engineers challenge is to deal with the heat dissipation which is being generated when braking the motor. Using the BRK-series of Isabellenhütte as a braking chopper, you're able to resist high energy loads. It's ideal for use on Inverters, EV pre-charging & current limiting applications.

  • Ideal precision shunt for extreme conditions

    When you're working on the design of a power application for extreme temperature conditions and you'd like to measure voltage or current, you might run into limitations. When the internal temperature of your application is rising, the constant load capacity of your shunt decreases and the long-term stability is put to the test.
