FUEL CELL MONITORING - fascinating technology for fascinated people

Fuel cells have virtually intrigued us from the start. This might be the reason for our pioneering spirit when it came to configuring the first fuel cell test vehicles in Germany with compact and powerful monitoring electronics.

Since then, our product portfolio has continued to grow. Our range includes fuel cell monitoring for labs and tests, as well as for mobile applications in the automotive and naval industry. There are a vast number of approvals for diverse requirements. Last but not least, related applications like monitoring of electrolysers in 24/7 operation are projected and configured by us.

430-channel fuel cell monitoring at cryogenic temperatures

The application of measurement technology within climate chambers makes high demands on the inserted components. The measurement modules (MCM IntelliProbe) and the process module (MCM-MasterModule) are housed in a heated aluminum body. This allows the reliable use of monitoring equipment at temperatures down to -40 °C. The internal heating thereby avoids the formation of condensation within the housing. To prevent the ingress of moisture from the outside, the whole system including all connectors is designed following the requirements of the tightness class IP65.
The system concept is modular to allow applications with up to 430 channels. The application of the MCM-MasterModule enables a monitoring of the individual cell voltages with sample rates up to 1000 sps full parallel. Applications with more than 400 channels can be scanned up to 500 sps. For the disclosure of the data, free configurable Ethernet, CAN and GPIO interfaces are included.

  • Low temperature application down to -40 °C
  • Communication via LAN, CAN and GPIO
  • Fast sampling with 1000 sps maximum
  • Internal data pre-processing within the MCM-MasterModule
  • Scalable
  • Tightness class IP65 (plugs in connected state)
  • Switchable measurement range -1 V up to +5 V or -3 V up to +3 V
  • Resolution 16 bit
  • Channel isolation 1.400 VDC
  • Configurable channel suppression

HiL test system for fuel cell control systems

System that allows developers to test fuel cell control systems based on SIMATIC S7 without requiring a real fuel cell. The test system is based on the Hardware-in-the-Loop-principle – the voltages of the fuel cell stack als well as all relevant environmental parameters are simulated.

The test environment combines the MCM-IntelliProbe modules for monitoring and simulating cell voltages with the I/O modules of the MCM productfamily. The latter simulate relevant environmental factors such as pressure, temperature or certain switching states and measure the output values of the control unit.

Plug 'n Play fuel cell monitoring for the test bench technique

The key requirements for measurement technology in the field of test bench applications are optimized handling properties. The integration of the system within a test rig environment has to occur easily with respect to assembly and disassembly. Moreover, a large variability concerning the test samples to be examined is required. This is especially true in the field of functional mock-up interfaces (FMI).
In the implemented solution, the measurement modules (MCM-IntelliProbe) and the process module (MCM-MasterModule) are housed within a 19"-rack, which allows simple integration or removal. Thus, the cell voltage monitoring units (CVM) can be exchanged between the FMI in any order. The connection of the measuring lines occurs via HV-qualified connectors. Moreover, additional taps for HV-- and HV+-signals are present. A wide range of test samples can be connected with the cell voltage monitoring unit via the customized harnesses.
The manifold blocks for power supply and communication lines may be placed either at the system side walls or at the back. Concerning this topic, we can react flexibly to customer-specific requirements. The cell voltage monitor is therefore characterized by a test bench suitable, strictly customer-oriented technology.
The system concept is modular to allow applications with up to 430 channels. The application of the MCM-MasterModule enables a monitoring of the individual cell voltages with sample rates up to 1000 sps full parallel. Applications with more than 400 channels can be scanned up to 500 sps. For the disclosure of the data, free configurable Ethernet, CAN and GPIO interfaces are included.
