The source/sink system

The source/sink system – "BatteryCraft" –  is a highly dynamic, regenerative DC voltage source for various test bench applications.

The power unit consists of a power inverter and DC/DC converters designed in state of the art IGBT technology. The device is characterized by a wide operating range and high control and measurement accuracies for both the voltage and current values. Combined with the fast current rise times, the device is ideal for use in test benches. The isolation monitoring can be switch on /off as well during operation.

The BatteryCraft device includes its own safety PLC which takes care that the system will be switched off according to performance level "D". In order to integrate our device into the external safety concept the relevant signals are available on terminal strips in the cabinet. The voltage drop on the supply line will be compensated over a separate sense line (by measurement of the voltage on the connection point).

BatteryCraft includes the following control mode:

  • Current
  • Voltage
  • Power

Remote control at fast EtherCAT connection included.
