FTF-HV – High Voltage Pack Testing System


  • IGBT Design for efficiency and high performance operation
  • Design for 100% duty cycle at max power
  • Over-current, under-current, over-voltage and under-voltage protection standard on all models
  • No performance loss under voltage control
  • Quick disconnects on output leads
  • Test control and data management with Bitrode’s VisuaLCNTM Lab Client Software
  • Constant Current (CC), Constant Voltage (CV), Constant Power (CP), and Constant Resistance (CR) control
  • Program execution is independent from the PC with VisuaLCNTM software, CE compliant
  • Discharge power recycled to AC line for cooler, energy-efficient operation
  • Built-in isolation transformer, AC input filter, and DC output filter
  • 3rd party software control through Remote Binary Protocol (RBP) via Ethernet connection (RBP sold separately)
  • Safety features include circuit shutdown when the cabinet door is open
  • Dual output in one cabinet with independent control circuit
  • Battery Simulation (BattSim) mode for electric motor/generator testing with user-specified controls: voltage, internal resistance, maximum power. Optional protection module available offers an added layer of protection to the FTF in case the inverter, motor controller, or other DUT connected to the FTF fails, loses control, or discharges an amount of energy outside the capabilities of the FTF. The energy is absorbed until the FTF can shut down in a safe controlled manner.
  • Up to two current ranges per circuit
  • Optional inputs (i.e. temperature, voltage and digital inputs/outputs) assignable to any channel
  • Digital I/O with functions assigned per individual test program
  • DC Internal Resistance calculation
  • Integration with Battery Management
  • Systems: CAN
  • Parallel BattSim mode for higher current requirements for specific configurations.
  • Insulation Monitoring Device
  • Remote Input Output (RIO) box reduces excessive cable lengths when connecting to remote test station.
  • Up to 512 additional sensor connections available when daisy chaining RIO Boxes
  • External Parallel Controller (PCC) can control up to four circuits for higher power and/or higher current test requirements
  • Drive Cycle Conversion utility automates test program development from acquired battery usage data
  • Custom Hardware and Software engineering services
  • Environmental chamber control (TCCA)
  • Ramp up/down of voltage in Battsim Mode
  • Battery Testing, including all advanced chemistries
  • Inverter, UPS, Generator, and Flywheel Testing
  • Fuel Cell Discharge Testing
  • Drive Cycle Simulation Testing: FUDS, SFUDS, GSFUDS, DST and ECE-15L
  • Cycle Testing of EV / HEV / PHEV Battery Packs
  • Bi-directional DC Power Supply
  • Microgrid Battery Conditioning: Increase Lifespan, Efficiency and Performance Battery Banks
  • Vehicle Drivetrain Testing
