ETS-Lindgren Expands Its Automotive EMC Testing Solutions to Include E-Motors

CEDAR PARK, Texas July 1, 2020 ETS-Lindgren, the leader in Automotive Test and Measurement, introduced a new series of E-Motor Test Solutions to address the emerging requirements of e-motor EMC performance validation and compliance testing.  Automotive technology continues to move forward with the growing acceptance of "smart" vehicles that provide higher and more sophisticated levels of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) capabilities.  At the same time, there is growing interest in sustainable energy, which includes electric vehicles (EVs) and other renewable applications.  The on-going change in the EV EMC environment is one of the few constants, as new onboard electronics, communications media (both wired and wireless), and high-efficiency Silicon-Carbide (SiC) drive systems are added.


ETS-Lindgren's new E-Motor Test Solutions extend EMC support of full vehicles and Electric/Electronic Sub-Assembly (ESA) testing to meet the requirements of industry standards CISPR 12, Ed. 6.1; CISPR 25, Ed. 4; ISO 11451-2; and ISO 11452-2.  Our E-Motor Test Solutions provide cost effective, efficient, repeatable testing and offer full vehicle configurations that include four-wheel drive and multi-axle chassis dynamometers, fully automatic remote antenna positioning, and charging mode test setups.  ETS-Lindgren can design and install turnkey Automotive Test Solutions, including chambers, control software, and support instrumentation for both emission and immunity tests.  Standard configurations include antennas and amplifiers to generate up to 200 V/m CW and 600 V/m pulse as part of the full system setup.  If a custom solution is required, ETS-Lindgren has the proven expertise to design and manufacture the ideal test system.


"A critical part of e-motor component testing is the motor dynamometer and its seamless integration with the chamber, instrumentation, and test software," said Garth D'Abreu, ETS-Lindgren's Director of Automotive Solutions.  "With today's e-motors and e-axles, the permanently installed or mobile motor dyno can act as a load for the motor and inverter under test.  These drive components introduce operation of high-speed machinery to the test environment, at much higher voltages than the 12 V DC used in standard electronics.  We are happy to help our customers select the right chamber and test instrumentation, in addition to the full vehicle chassis dyno or e-motor dyno for the particular application.  We can also recommend precautions to reduce safety risks.  With these complex test environments, it's essential to fully understand the customer's test requirements up front in order to ensure a successful project completion."
