HBM Power Analyzers: Powerful Testing Solutions for Electric Drives

HBM eDrive series power analyzers are ideal  testing solutions for inverter driven electrical machines. Based on digital cycle detection, our power analyzers offer unparalleled power computation, delivering reliable results even through dynamic load changes where conventional power meters would fail.
Unlike conventional power analyzers  which cannot cover all current electric drive technologies, eDrive power analyzers have enough flexibility,  sample rates and extra features to cope with all modern drive technologies. They can be expanded with more channels, higher sample rates, and additional inputs to futureproof your eDrive testing solution.

  • 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 

The eDrive solution from HBM covers the entire measurement chain: high-precision sensors, powerful instruments and  intuitive software. Mechanical signals (e.g. torque) and electrical signals (current and voltage) are acquired simultaneously  and help engineers to better understand the electrical drive and its losses faster and more accurately than ever before.
