The electrification of vehicles has pushed past consumer passenger cars into commercial and industrial transportation forcing automotive electronics to constantly evolve. While this technology area was once focused on entertainment, navigation, and comfort systems the industry has now turned its focus to higher power, higher voltages, and energy management systems.
This power is not just localized to a battery and electric motor, the drivetrain and power management systems also have similar power requirements. To be able to keep up with the changing demands of electric vehicles, the challenge for test engineers is to keep up with the trends and avoid buying new test equipment every few months.
EA Elektro-Automatik’s line of DC power supplies, electronic loads, and bidirectional power supplies have features that allow flexibility to test multiple devices and still meet future needs. EAs PSI, EL, ELR, and PSB product series can go up to 2000V, have true autoranging and on-board arbitrary waveform, and function generator.
This flexibility allows EA to produce or sink power needed to simulate or test any power device in an electric vehicle and the arbitrary waveform generator enables the user to simulate real-world conditions.
