Electrical component test systems often need industry-specific components to complete the test system.
Low-power components can often be tested with straightforward signal conditioning for connections to data acquisition hardware. For example, testing battery or fuel cell stacks up to a few 10s of volts can be handled with isolation modules which offer common mode rejection.
For high-power components, the signal conditioning can involve some potentially large and expensive components. Furthermore, safety considerations become paramount via both proper component selection, guarding, lockout-tagout procedures, and possible shutdown control schemes. These high-power situations also often call for careful design of signal grounding and shielding to reduce noise on the measurement signals.
We develop custom automated test systems to test electrical components and systems.
From high-voltage power supplies, to industrial-grade UPSs, high-power capacitors to electric motors, from power meters to fuel cells, and from power conversion switches to regenerative blowers, we’ve tested a lot of different electrical products.
