The electrification of mechanics: Are you already measuring synchronously?
For testing household appliances, automobile drives, machines, systems or high-voltage components: HBM offers integrated solutions for synchronous recording of mechanical and electrical quantities. This gives users full access to accurate raw data and less complexity in the test setup.
Electromechanical actuators and drives have extended their success to use in numerous applications. Consider the automobile, for example, mechatronic components are playing an ever greater role in areas such as the drive, chassis, comfort and safety. Modern cars are becoming more and more like driven computers with central closing systems, windows, seats, climate, brakes, steering and electrified drives. Today a luxury limousine may contain up to 100 electrical drives.
The growing demand for more comfort, reduced CO2, increased efficiency and safety functions is leading to a rise in electrical and electronic components such as electric motors, sensors and control units. This in turn increases the need for reliably predictive tests with numerous electrical and mechanical signals to optimize these components. Earlier test methods work with a wide range of different measuring instruments such as multimeters and dynamometers. This means they return somewhat inaccurate results that are not synchronized with the mechanical data, which is no longer adequate.
