6/16/2020 – NH Research Webinar: Accelerate Battery Test Automation with Enerchron®

Tue, Jun 16, 2020 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM MDT


Battery testing is complex, challenging and time consuming. Today’s engineers are looking for ways to accelerate and manage the complexities of test. A considerable amount of time is spent on test development, data collection and post-processing, not to mention, having to repeat this cycle when errors inevitably occur. Using the right software tool can dramatically reduce total testing time (time to results), eliminate operator errors and increase engineering productivity.
Enerchron® is an advanced software solution with test creation, execution and reporting tools created for battery testing. Sophisticated, dynamic test sequences are created without requiring complex programming skills. By enabling the integration of modular power stages, third-party products and control stations, NHR creates comprehensive test environments that are unique to each application. Enerchron breaks the mold of traditional automated battery cycling through its unique variable-based test sequence editor and compatibility with third-party solutions and equipment. Battery cycling profiles can now be easily created, run and repurposed for any Unit Under Test (UUT) or test station.
Key Takeaways:
• Learn how Enerchron differs from traditional battery test software • Identify how to develop a robust test plan strategy
• Get new insights on how to simplify and accelerate your battery test approach
• Receive a tutorial on how to set up a sample test procedure and drive cycle sequence using variables

5/28/2020 – Pickering Webinar: Accelerate Software Development of Your Automated Test Systems

Online Technical Webinar from Pickering

Accelerate Software Development of Your Automated Test Systems
  • Date: Thursday, May 28th 
  • Time:
    • 10:30 AM Eastern Time
    • 3:30 PM British Standard Time
    • 4:30 PM Central European Time

Much like driving from one point to another in a big city, routing an electrical signal between a test instrument and a device under test can require navigating a complex network of interconnected relays, wiring and interfaces. Instead of right and left turns, the ATE software engineer must determine the correct position setting of multiple relays to establish the desired route.

In this training, you'll learn how Switch Path Manager (SPM) signal routing software accelerates the software development effort of Automated Test Systems, considerably reducing the number of lines of code required to route test instrumentation to the device to be tested.

SPM signal routing software is an interactive utility that essentially maps a wiring and interconnect schematic into a configuration file that can be used to simplify code development. Features include:

  • Complex switching systems management
  • Reduction of switching software development effort
  • Debug monitor and manual control capability
  • APIs available for C, C++, .NET, LabWindows™/CVI and LabVIEW® Windows 32-bit or 64-bit compatible

Presenter: Ben Jackson, Senior Applications Engineer at NH Research

Electric Powertrain Next Generation Test Solutions

As electrification continues to accelerate in automotive and aerospace, engineers must address new testing challenges for hybrid, fuel cell and electric powertrain. Modern propulsion system architectures are fundamentally different and present new challenges and risks. Therefore, it is important for engineers to use the most effective technologies and test approaches to ensure product performance, safety, reliability and reduced time to market.

 

Electric powertrain systems are complex and raise new testing challenges including increased voltage and power levels, long test times, and different safety risks. Traditional powertrain test approaches rely on unidirectional devices that have drawbacks and limitations. Next generation battery emulation and DC Buss emulation provides a bi-directional approach that sinks and sources to maintain voltage regulation, accepts back EMF which prevents safety hazards, and has isolated input and output paths to eliminate single points of failure.

 

This session will review how modern solutions for emulating batteries and fuel cells are the right approach for faster, scalable and more repeatable testing of electric powertrain systems. As electrification is evolving to higher power demands, the ability to emulate a battery with speed and precision is critical. Battery emulation can substantially reduce test time, risk, energy consumption and operating costs.

 

In this webinar, learn about:

 

  • Key Industry Trends, Challenges & Opportunities
  • Electric Powertrain Test Solutions
  • Battery Emulation Differentiators - What to Look for in a Battery Emulator
  • Cohesive, Scalable, Intuitive Software Solutions
