With the increasing adoption of electric vehicles in industries such as automotive and aerospace, one of the significant challenges to be tackled is the effective testing and validation of Battery Management Systems (BMS). 

PXI-based, modular switch & simulation modules for a fully flexible BMS test system Using modular, PXI-based switch and simulation modules offers many advantages in testing a BMS including:

  • A fully flexible test system that can be optimized to meet exactly what is needed and can be easily modified to address evolving requirements
  • An industry-standard open architecture that promotes system longevity and mitigates obsolescence while providing seamless integration of multi-vendor instrumentation and communication modules

To facilitate BMS testing, our PXI/PXIe multi-cell battery simulator/emulator range (view the video here) is ideal for battery stack emulation with the advantage of a modular and scalable platform. These modules enable direct voltage and current readback either programmatically or using our soft panel control. 

With an isolation specification of 750 Volts, you can build a BMS test system that supports up to 100 cells of battery simulation, all contained within a single 19-slot PXI or PXIe chassis.

For a flexible BMS test system, combine the battery simulators with our other PXI switch and simulation modules, including:

The battery simulator modules can also be combined with other vendors' PXI modules such as a CANbus interface to create a fully flexible test system.
