Test Systems for Simulating Any Conceivable Test Scenario

Test Systems for Simulating Any Conceivable Test Scenario

Modern vehicles contain extensive hardware and software functionality that has to be checked, verified and safeguarded from all sides. This task is particularly challenging because it takes a longtime during vehicle engineering before these components are installed in a real vehicle and can thus be tested in a real environment. With individual function and hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) test systems, any conceivable test scenario can be covered and easily simulated in the laboratory without risking real vehicles or endangering the lives of test drivers.

High-Voltage Test Adapters – The Solution for Safe Testing of HV Components

Special test adapters for safe testing of high-voltage components on the HiL tester

If high-voltage components or subsystems of electric and hybrid vehicles are to be tested, HV components must be constructed so that they are safe to touch and all queries to be measured or influenced must be fed to the test system galvanically isolated from the high voltage. Softing realizes special test adapters for HV control units, in other words for Battery Management Controllers (BMC) as well as for Cell Supervision Electronics (CSE).

Passive Cell Simulation for ECU Tests without Real Cells

Passive Cell Simulation by Softing

Passive cell simulations are used to avoid being permanently dependent on real batteries or very complex and expensive active cell simulations during the development of Cell Supervision Electronics (CSE). These simulate the complete cell stack in a balanced state of charge, the individual cell controllers detect suitably charged cells and thus a fully functional battery system.

The Perfect Match – Individual, modular workshop tester meets flexible, rugged CAN/CAN FD Interface

Softing TDX.workshop and Kvaser U100 – Strong Together in After-Sales

Together with Kvaser, we now offer a robust plug & play solution for all after-sales diagnostic tasks that can withstand even the toughest demands in the workshop environment. The combination of intuitive diagnostic software from Softing and the powerful U100 vehicle interface from Kvaser is the ideal solution for fault localization, repair and commissioning of individual components as well as entire vehicle systems, including electric vehicles and mobile machines.
