Isabellenhütte introduces new voltage measurement system

LinkedIn +

Isabellenhütte has developed a new shunt-based sensor system for measurement of current and voltage, with a maximum dielectric strength of 1,000V.

Today’s lithium-ion batteries generate high energy density at which higher voltages can be applied with smaller currents. This is why the sensor’s dielectric strength also has to be high − a key quality feature that is said to distinguish the new IVT-S system from competing products. For fast-charging battery systems, this performance feature is extremely important.

The IVT-S is equipped with a 16-bit AD converter, which guarantees the precise transformation of the voltage drop into digital signals. Data is transmitted through a CAN 2.0 interface. Through this module, the internally-developed current counting firmware is provided with information on charge and discharge volumes. In addition, Isabellenhütte provides a CAN description file in *dbc format that helps IVT-S users to swiftly integrate the application.
