Current and voltage measurement devices for hybrid and electric vehicles save space

Isabellenhütte current and voltage measurement devices for hybrid and electric vehicles

Does Charging and Discharging of Lithium-ion batteries for you pose a great challenge to measure current and voltage?

    Sensor module for quick and precise measurements

  • Isabellenhütte Heusler is presenting a sensor module (IMC) tailored to all of the required needs. It can be completely configured according to customer requirements. For use in hybrid and electric vehicles, precision and component size are crucial factors. The small, and therefore space-saving, IMC (shunt: 20 x 85 mm, board 20 x 40 mm) can perform measurements within a current range of  1,500 A at a resolution of 50 mA. The sensor module records voltage within a range of  20 V at a resolution of 1 mV. Measurements are taken via a 100-µ-ohm-shunt, and measured values are logged by the four-channel 16-bit data acquisition system ISA-ASIC. For this pre-calibrated sensor module, customer calibration is no longer necessary. Both supply voltage and SPI signal are electrically isolated.

    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.
