At the E-Mobility Symposium on February 27 in Stuttgart, Germany, Vector Informatik will be presenting its new vCTS. Short for Vector charging test system, the vCTS is a modular test system for charging communications tests.
Available in several variants that meet the test requirements of the various charging standards and charging capacities, vCTS is designed to support the most common charging protocols and standards, such as CCS, NACS, GB/T or CHAdeMO. Vector suggests that the system’s modularity and the interchangeable cassettes allow both EVs and charging stations to be connected and tested. Users can also switch between AC and DC charging.
As part of the Vector E-Mobility test solution, the system acts as a hardware platform for executing the tests from the CANoe Test Package EV or CANoe Test Package EVSE. Test automation is carried out via CANoe, which controls the hardware and generates detailed test reports.
Jan Grossmann, manager of the Vector E-Mobility test solution, said, “With the vCTS, we offer our customers a sophisticated and flexible solution for testing and validating charging communication between EVs and charging stations.”
