Multi-channel voltage monitoring of fuel cells and battery stacks
The Smart Electronics CVMpro family provides a large complement of electrically isolated voltage measurement channels designed especially for testing fuel cells and battery stacks.
CVMpro family modules sequentially read the values from up to 90 measurement channels. A CAN bus handles the device configuration as well as the transfer of measurement data to a host computer. Higher channel counts can be configured by cascading several devices of the same series using a separate CAN bus. The CVMpro devices are ideally suited for monitoring fuel cell stacks, electrolyzes, battery stacks and high-performance capacitors. The units are deployed in mobile systems such as electro-vehicles, in submarines and in test bench instrumentation. For military/aerospace applications a special version is available that meet the military standards MIL-STD 461C 1986-08-04, Part 6, CE01, CE03, RE02 and MIL-STD 462 D, 1993-01-11 18.104.22.168
For software development a Function library for C/C++ and LabVIEW for Windows is available. To aid the configuration and visualization of measurement results the visualisation soft CVMView!pro-V2 is also available off the shelf.
Numerous optional hardware accessories such as USB/CAN bus interface module, various CAN bus connection cables and CAN bus termination units ensure that the CVMpro can be integrated very quickly into any test environment.
