National Instruments (NI) has announced a collaboration with German power supply manufacturer EA Elektro-Automatik to offer bidirectional power supplies that support battery cycling and power-level tests. EA’s power supplies will be integrated into NI’s software-connected toolchain as part of NI’s power electronics.
Integrating EA’s devices into NI’s toolchain gives test engineers and lab managers more flexible battery cycling configurations for their test labs, and quicker response time for new power level test requirements.
“This partnership combines control, measurement and power into the test systems,” says Eric Turner, Director of EA Elektro-Automatik. “EA is proud to be a technology enabler via power regeneration technology that reduces energy consumption by up to 96%.”
