E-Mobility and Battery Testing
E-mobility, the use of electric powertrains in vehicles, represents an extraordinary technological development for automotive and air travel. Electric vehicles, propelled by electric motors powered through a rechargeable onboard battery system, require thorough and reliable test and measurement solutions. Temperature and strain sensing are crucial to optimizing the performance, durability and safety of the battery system as well as the inverter, power electronics and motor itself.
Fiber optic sensors are ideal for testing and monitoring batteries and other components due to several benefits:
- Immunity to electromagnetic interference (EMI) and high voltages
- Corrosion resistance
- Extremely small and lightweight sensors and cabling
- Multiple measurements on single optical fiber
