Clacton-on-Sea, UK – Pickering Interfaces, the leading provider of modular signal switching & simulation products for electronic test & verification, will showcase its Battery Management System (BMS) test demo on booth PD76 at productronica India, part of Messe München’s series of events that also includes Munich and China, taking place at Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC), Bengaluru from 13-15 September 2023.
productronica India is South Asia’s leading trade fair for electronics development and production. Founded in 2000, it alternates annually between the two Indian economic hubs, Delhi and Bengaluru. Running alongside electronica India, the trade fair for electronic components, systems, and applications, it covers the entire value-added chain – from design to manufacturing – for the electronics industry. In 2022, 343 exhibitors from 19 countries welcomed more than 20,000 visitors from 35 countries over 25,000m² of exhibition floor space.
Outlining the BMS test demo, Paul Bovingdon, Simulation Product Manager at Pickering explains: “With increasing adoption of electric vehicles (EVs), one significant challenge to be tackled is the effective testing and validation of Battery Management Systems (BMS). Using modular, PXI-based switch and simulation modules offers many advantages in BMS test, including flexibility to optimize the test system to meet exact requirements; simple modification to address evolving needs; and an open, industry-standard architecture that promotes system longevity and mitigates obsolescence while providing seamless integration of multi-vendor instrumentation modules.”
The BMS test demo includes the following Pickering products:
- 41-752A-011 PXI Battery Simulator – simulates batteries in a stacked architecture
- 40-190B-002 PXI Fault Insertion – simulates cell shorts and broken wires
- 40-297A-050 PXI Precision Resistor – simulates battery load
- 42-297A-150 PXIe Programmable Resistor – tests BMS isolation resistance check
- 41-743-001 PXI Programmable Power Supply – simulates battery charger
- 43-920-001 PXI Embedded Controller
- 42-925-001 PXIe 18-slot Chassis
