Pickering Interfaces, the leading supplier of modular signal switching and simulation solutions for use in electronic test and verification, will be demonstrating its latest product developments at electronica 2022, the world’s leading trade fair for electronics development and production, in Munich (November 15th to 18th).
In Hall A3 on Booth 161, Pickering will highlight its latest PXI multi-cell battery simulator module along with its other switch and simulation modules, including fault insertion switching and programmable resistors inside their Battery Management System (BMS) test demo developed in integration with partner Austin Consultants.
Explains Paul Bovingdon, Simulation Product Manager, “With the increasing adoption of electric vehicles, one of the significant challenges to be tackled is the effective testing and validation of Battery Management Systems (BMS). Using modular, PXI-based switch and simulation modules offers many advantages in testing a BMS, including flexibility to optimize the test system to meet exact requirements; simple modification to address evolving requirements; and an industry-standard open architecture that promotes system longevity and mitigates obsolescence while providing seamless integration of multi-vendor instrumentation and communication modules.”
The BMS test demo includes the following Pickering products:
· 41-752A PXI Battery Simulator – Simulates batteries in a stacked architecture
· 40-190B PXI Fault Insertion – Simulates cell shorts and broken wires
· 40-253 PXI Precision Resistor – Simulates battery load
· 42-297A PXIe Programmable Resistor – Simulates battery temperature sensors
· 41-743 PXI Programmable Power Supply – Simulates battery charger
· 43-920 PXI Embedded Controller
· 42-925 PXIe 18-slot Chassis
