Pickering Interfaces Demos EV BMS Test Rig at India EV Show 2024

Visit booth #E01 at the India EV Show in Chennai, India, June 29 & 30th, 2024

Pickering Interfaces will showcase its range of best-in-class, industry-standard modular signal switching and sensor simulation solutions for automotive electronics test and verification –including HIL (hardware-in-the-loop) simulation for ECU/VCU and BMS (battery management system) test – on booth E01 at the India EV Show 2024, taking place on June 29 & 30th, in Hall No. 3 at Chennai Trade Centre, in Chennai, India.

Supported by the Government, the India EV Show’s 4th edition is India’s largest electric vehicle (EV) trade show and technical conference, covering the entire EV ecosystem to spark innovation and forge connections between emerging start-ups and established heavyweights in the electric mobility arena. The event draws a wide array of industry movers—from automotive giants and cutting-edge charging solution & battery innovators, to test facilities, software developers, MaaS innovators, drivetrain specialists, financial experts, and legislators—all united to propel progress and collaboration. EV technology will have worldwide implications in the energy and transport sectors, as well as driving changes in societal and economic behaviour. Join over 5,000 visitors to meet with more than 120 exhibitors and explore the future EV landscape and India’s global e-mobility role.

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 making ECU/VCU and 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 9kV, 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 electromechanical relay products.
  • Significant high channel-count additions to its extensive range of PXI Digital I/O modules.
  • Supporting cables and connectors, together with its free online graphical Cable Design Tool.
  • eBIRST Switching System Test Tools – designed to simplify fault-finding by quickly testing a switching system and graphically identifying faulty relays.

Pickering Group’s reed relay division, Pickering Electronics, will also be on the stand, highlighting its range of high voltage (HV) reed relays – including its Series 219 surface mount reed relay and the 5kV version of its single-in-line Series 104 reed relay.

Pickering Interfaces stands behind its manufactured products with a standard three-year warranty and guaranteed long-term product support. Pricing, availability and contact information are supplied on its website at: www.pickeringtest.com
