Test and measurement equipment specialist HBM has launched a dedicated e-mobility section on its website, to help engineers and manufacturers find the correct tools when testing new vehicle setups.
More mobility applications are becoming non-combustion or electric, and vehicles such as aircraft, commercial trucks and ships will have an ever-increasing need for battery-electric propulsion systems to combat the reduction of greenhouse gases.
HBM provides apparatus for efficiency analysis of electric and mechanical power and can record raw signal data coming from both sides of a vehicle. Mounted into the shaft between an electric drive and load machine in a dyno test rig, the new technology provides manufacturers 50 electrical power measurements and six mechanical power measurements at the same time.
Furthermore, HBM also offer a range of devices to record thermal output of electric components, and tools for stress or fatigue analysis. This is vital to help engineers produce more efficient and cost-effective lightweight solutions for the future.
