Highly insulated measurement module fills gap in EV and battery testing markets

The new imc CANSASfit HISO-HV-4 measurement module fills a gap in the ever-increasing demands in the EV and battery testing markets. The new CAN measurement module can perform measurements in high-voltage environments up to 1500V and expands the range of testing possibilities for test engineers, and research and development professionals.

The new module improves the series of the company's measurement modules, including multiple ultra-compact and robustly designed modules for CAN-based test tasks. These are for DAQ during mobile tests or trials and permit direct connection of all typical signals such as voltage, current, rotational speed, temperature, displacement and velocity. Also, the highly insulated measurement fit-modules are appropriate for measuring directly in high-voltage environments such as mobile applications or test benches in e-mobility or battery testing.

The new measurement module is created to capture differential voltages up to 1500V and has 1000V CAT II and reinforced insulation. Four channels, furnished with banana laboratory terminals, provide measurement data through CAN-Bus with a maximum data rate of one kilohertz per channel.

The very small clickable housing enables direct mechanical and electrical docking to other fit-modules, particularly to the complementing HISO module types HISO-T-8 and HISO-UT-6, which are developed for measurements of temperature sensors (TC, RTD), low voltages and MEMS accelerometers, all riding on high voltage (HV) potentials. It, therefore, completes the portfolio of modules ideal for e-mobility applications.
