HBM eDrive System as the Perfect Fit
Playing a role of extreme importance for this robust and highly specialised group is its partnership with HBM, a leading German multinational in the T&M sector. The Loccioni group has also recently completed new rooms for testing complete ICE, hybrid and electric traction systems.
“The HBM eDrive GEN7ta system, with GN610B boards and Perception software, was the logical choice for these development environments, due to the simplicity of integrating the acquisition system with the flange torsiometers and Hall effect current transducers already used by Loccioni” – says Maurizio Bosi (Loccioni R&D).
“Perception software eliminates the need to modify the characteristics of the acquisition channel each time the acquisition system is interfaced with a new transducer, as its built-in database already contains a wide variety of the sensors currently available on the market”.
On top of this, the expandability and flexibility offered by the 7 slots included in the Gen7ta hardware means that the system can be upgraded when needed in response to current or future measurement requirements, catering for the many different technological solutions developed by automotive companies. These characteristics are of primary importance for a business such as Loccioni, which applies tailor-made technological solutions to develop projects for the leading OEM and tier1 suppliers of the automotive industry.
Unlike other electrical power analysers, the eDrive testing solution is also capable of measuring not only during stationary states of the system but also during transient states. During the development of new hybrid and electric systems, the ability to record and save data relative to transient states, to permit post-processing and analysis of impulse and/or random phenomena (see Figure 1), is of crucial importance.
