The latest web technologies allow a deeper insight into fuel cells

The monitoring of fuel cell systems is a complex business. After all, it means keeping a constant watch on several hundred individual cells to register developments as they happen. And recording the measurement data at a high scanning rate is only part of the task – IntelliProbe modules from SMART permit synchronous scanning of up to 400 channels at a rate of 1 kilohertz per channel, so plenty of data mounts up. It is also essential for this volume of data to be displayed as instantly as possible. If the visualisation process takes too long, high-speed events in the stack will not show up.

Full steam ahead towards Web 4.0

As web-based applications do not have to be locally installed on a PC, Mac or Tablet, they do not require any particular operating system. The only thing that users need: An internet-capable data terminal equipped with a web browser. That applies to virtually all devices used in companies these days. More advantages offered by web technology include its tremendous flexibility, high speed and integration capability for corresponding applications.

Fuel cell cars gather momentum

Thermal management plays an important role in the stack-level use of the CVM measuring components. Heat sinks optimize heat dissipation.

If the EU commission has its way, automobile manufacturers will have to reduce the CO2 emissions of new vehicles by 30 per cent by the year 2030. By the same date, 30 per cent of all new cars brought onto the market should ideally be powered by alternative drive concepts. In the light of these targets it is therefore no surprise that the focus of attention has started to shift back to fuel cell vehicles in recent weeks.

Applications

Test system provides phase-stable rpm simulation for engine electronics

In the automotive industry, testing of start-stop systems and hybrid drives as well as the trend towards industry 4.0 pose new challenges to testing technology. Smart Testsolutions GmbH (Stuttgart, Germany) counters these challenges with a new generation of its ISIM-G2 test unit for speed simulation and angle-based trigger signal generation. Application areas of the product are test stands for car engines and modern injection systems.

Fuel cell contacting unit has a height of only 5 mm

The specialist for measurement technology and test systems Smart Testsolutions has developed a cell contact-making unit for the voltage tap on fuel cells, which has a height of only five millimeters. Previous solutions needed space between 35 and 250 millimeters. In addition, the new unit makes complex positioning work on the contacts unnecessary. The unit can be used in stationary test equipment as well as in fuel cell vehicles.
