Solution used by VDE in calibration and certification
Danisense has announced a partnership with leading German power instrumentation company, ZES ZIMMER to deliver highly accurate, stable DC meter test systems. Comprising the Danisense DS600 current sense transducer paired with the LMG600 power analyser from ZES ZIMMER, the system is already being used by renowned German standards organization, VDE, to calibrate and certify DC meters used in EV charging stations which are proliferating as consumers switch to electric cars.
ZES ZIMMER’s LMG600 series power analysers provide accurate DC measurement across a current input range of 500μA – 32A rms. But EV charging stations supplying hundreds of kilowatts and other applications such as DC micro grids require currents in the hundreds of amps. Danisense current transducers enable the system to measure up to 2000A rms (3000A peak or DC) and even higher. DC meter accuracy is especially important, since customers will be charged on how much they use, and stability over temperature and other environmental factors is also important.
Commented Patrick Fuchs, Business Development Manager at ZES ZIMMER: “Danisense transducers are widely-regarded as delivering a very accurate, repeatable measurement. We have been able to integrate the DS600 series into our DC metering solution, making it simple for organisations to set up their test program without requiring any other equipment.”
Loic Moreau, VP marketing at Danisense added: “We are very pleased to partner with ZES ZIMMER to deliver this easy-to-use DC measurement package. ZES ZIMMER is recognized as a technical leader in the field of power analysis, and the fact that VDE is using the solution should give consumers massive confidence that they are being correctly billed.”
