Power Analyzers to Test Inverter Driven Electrical Machines

The HBM eDrive series of Power Analyzers are with unparalleled power computation based on digital cycle detection. Thus, they deliver reliable results also in dynamic load changes, where conventional power meters just fail. With enough sample rate to cover all current inverter technologies, they can be expanded with more channel, higher sample rates, or other inputs to match every need you might run into in the future. 

  • 3 to 51 power channels per mainframe   
  • Simultaneous acquisition of electrical, mechanical and bus data 
  • Real time result transfer to automation system and real time raw data storage 

Accurate

  • Accuracy 0.015% reading + 0.02% range
  • High bandwidth >1 MHz 
  • Digital cycle detect for accurate results in static and dynamic tests 
  • Complete chain with “best in class” torque and current transducers 

Highest possible accuracy – for electrical and mechanical

Flexible

  • Grows from entry level 3 channel to high end 51 channel Power Analyzer
  • Electrical, mechanical, bus inputs 
  • Real time bus outputs 
  • Programmers API for system integration 

Easy to Use – from browser based to system integration

Powerful

  • Scalable computing power using on board DSPs 
  • Real time power calculation for any channel count 
  • Custom formulas 
  • Real time raw data storage 

Advanced – compute all you need in real time & store raw data 

eDrive Power Analyzers for Demanding R&D Applications and System Integration

eDrive Power Analyzers offer 3, 6 or 9 power channels with a sample rate of 2 MS/s; they can be expanded in channel count, or with mechanical inputs like acceleration or temperature, or with higher sample rate input boards. They use Perception Enterprise / eDrive software offering the usability of a POWER METER combined with the flexibility of a DAQ system. “t” mainframes are used using an external PC, while “I” system feature an integrated WIN10 PC.
