EV BMS test rig demo from Pickering Interfaces on show at The Battery Show Europe 2024, Stuttgart, Germany

Pickering Interfaces will showcase its range of best-in-class, industry-standard modular signal switching and sensor simulation solutions for electronics test and verification – including BMS (battery management system) test – on booth D71 in Hall 9 at The Battery Show Europe 2024, taking place from 18-20 June 2024 at Messe Stuttgart in Germany.

The Battery Show, co-located with Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo, is Europe’s premier conference and tech expo focused on developments in the battery technology and automotive industries. A technical conference will explore advances in battery tech, next-gen materials and hot topics including charging and infrastructure, regulatory insight, production and upscaling, and sustainability, recycling and end-of-life options. With more than 1,000 manufacturers and service providers, the exhibition offers an unparalleled opportunity to source the latest design and production solutions from across the battery and EV supply chain, including energy storage systems, electrical powertrains, battery management systems, materials, components, equipment, testing and recycling.

Outlining the BMS test rig demo, Paul Bovingdon, Simulation Product Manager at Pickering, explains: “With the increasing adoption of electric vehicles (EVs), one significant challenge to be tackled is effective testing and validation of battery management systems (BMS). Using modular, PXI-based switch and simulation products offers many advantages for BMS hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) 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 modular instrumentation.”

Pickering has developed modules optimized for automotive electronics test and is focused on ways to make BMS testing easier, faster, and more reliable. In addition to its BMS test demo, the company will also highlight the following signal switching and sensor simulation products:

  • A range of PXI/PXIe and LXI high voltage switching solutions to 9 kV, as well as fault insertion, programmable resistor, and sensor simulation modules.
  • RF & microwave switching products, including new PXI MEMS-based RF multiplexers that deliver 300x operational life and 60x test system throughput compared to existing electro-mechanical relay products.
  • Significant high channel-count additions to its extensive range of PXI Digital I/O modules.
  • Fully integrated turnkey LXI microwave switch and signal routing subsystems – including a custom microwave switching matrix demo.
  • Supporting cables and connectors, together with its free online graphical Cable Design Tool.
  • Switch Path Manager (SPM) – the latest version of this automated signal routing software adds auto-detection and route caching features that improve speed and performance.
  • eBIRST Switching System Test Tools – designed to simplify system fault-finding by quickly testing a switching system and graphically identifying any faulty relays.
