HBM Launches an Integrated eDrive Test System for Electric Motor and Inverter Analysis

HBM, Inc. (www.hbm.com),
a leading manufacturer of data acquisition systems, analysis and
calibration software, strain gauges, and transducers and sensors, has
introduced a new solution for eDrive testing, a powerful, integrated
system for measuring the performance and efficiency of electric motors
Making the measurements necessary to increase the efficiency of an
electric drive train used to be a real chore. Typically, a power
analyzer is used to make these measurements, but while these instruments
do provide calculated results, they do not provide the raw data that
engineers actually need.
“HBM’s new eDrive package is the only completely integrated test
solution on the market that allows engineers to record, verify and study
both electrical and mechanical parameters under dynamic conditions,”
said Mike Hoyer, HBM applications engineer.
The eDrive testing solution combines HBM’s T12 or T40 torque sensor, the
most accurate torque transducers in each respective class; the GEN3i
data acquisition system; and as an option the Quantum 1609B temperature
satellite to provide synchronous, dynamic, and continuous acquisition of
mechanical and electrical signals from an electric drive system. In
addition to making temperature, torque and rotational measurements, the
eDrive testing solution can make measurements from as many as 18 current
and voltage channels at voltages up to 1,000 V, at a sampling rate of up
to 2 MS/s.
The system incorporates an intuitive eDrive software GUI developed
exclusively for electric motor and inverter testing. For noise immunity,
optional high voltage 2-wire shielded cables with safety banana
connectors are provided in various lengths ensuring improved signal
integrity. For additional safety from high voltages and currents, an
optical Ethernet interface offers complete display and control from a
remote location or control room via an external PC.
The mechanical torque and rotational signals are recorded by the use of
a rotating torque sensor with an integral slotted disc for speed sensing.
The system not only provides the raw data, but real-time analysis as
well. Included with the system is powerful software that provides a
complete characterization of an electrical drive train. The software
analyzes the raw data and displays real time results, such as true,
reactive and apparent power and efficiency calculations. It also allows
for more extensive verification and analysis of the corresponding raw
data. A freely programmable formula database can be used to determine
equivalent circuit diagrams, calculate air gap or cogging torques for
motor analysis plus calculation for space vector, part transformation
and THD to analyze inverter behavior.

The increasing popularity of the Internet of Things necessitates that our physical and cognitive relationship with wearable technology will change rapidly in the near future. This advent means logging has become a thing of the past. Before, it was on us to track our own data, but now that data is automatically available. What does this mean for mHealth and the "connected" body?
In her session at @ThingsExpo, Lisa Calkins, CEO and co-founder of Amadeus Consulting, will discuss the impact of wea...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights.
At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.
