Isabellenhuette Launches New Measurement Technology Product
The latest product development in measurement technology from Isabellenhuette is a compact current measuring module.
The shunt-based ICD-A system has a sealed six-pole MCON connector, which is commonly used in the automotive industry. It protects the signal and power transmission from external influences. With transmission rates of up to 1 Mbit/s, the connection provides digitised data in CAN bus 2.0 format, and ensures a high level of measurement precision for its users. The microcontroller used for digitisation includes, among other features, an AC/DC converter, temperature measurement and voltage regulation. This solution also stands out from the crowd thanks to its ultra-low energy consumption, which the sensor can also measure and supply independently "“ an advantage that is particularly important in the area of e-mobility. The ICD-A is available in three variations with different current levels: 100 A, 300 A and 500 A. All models have the same dimensions.
Alongside the automotive solution, Isabellenhuette also offers a version of the measurement technology system for industry in the form of the ICD-C model. Both ICD-A and ICD-C boast a highly compact design. This makes them particularly suited to applications where space is tight in terms of assembly, because they are more than 50 per cent smaller than comparable products. Galvanic isolation was not used, as customer applications always have their own built-in galvanic isolation. This makes the ICD series one of the most compact product series in the ISAscale range.
