eDrive Power Meters and Analyzers – Overview

eDrive Power Meters and Analyzers – Overview

The eDrive Power Meter and Power Analyzer packages are tailored for power measurement at inverters and inverter driven machines. Thus, they utilize high sample rates and both electrical as well as mechanical power calculation capabilities.

Power Meters and Power Analyzers to Test Inverter Driven Electrical Machines

The HBM eDrive series of Power Meters and Power Analyzers are both with unparalleled power computation based on digital cycle detection. Thus, they deliver reliable results also in dynamic load changes, where conventional power meters just fail. With enough sample rate to cover all current inverter technologies, they can be expanded with more channel, higher sample rates, or other inputs to match every need you might run into in the future.

  • 3 to 51 power channels per mainframe

  • Real time raw data storage

Advanced – compute all you need in real time & store raw data

eDrive Power Meters for Entry Level Applications or System Integration

eDrive Power Meters offer 3 or 6 power channels and a sample rate of 2 MS/s; they come with an embedded POWER METER APP which enables them to be used with any device running a browser; connection is done using Ethernet connection.

Options include embedded SSD for raw data storage, CAN bus output, torque / speed connection box, artificial star adapter, current transducers, high voltage probes, and much more. Please order proper input cables for current and voltage when needed.

eDrive Power Analyzers for demanding R&D Applications and System Integration

eDrive Power Analyzers offer 3, 6 or 9 power channels with a sample rate of 2 MS/s; they can be expanded in channel count, or with mechanical inputs like acceleration or temperature, or with higher sample rate input boards. They use Perception Enterprise / eDrive software offering the usability of a POWER METER combined with the flexibility of a DAQ system. “t” mainframes are used using an external PC, while “I” system feature an integrated WIN10 PC.

Pending from the mainframe type, options include embedded SSD for raw data storage, more power inputs, other inputs for mechanical signals like acceleration or temperatures, CAN input and outputs, EtherCAT real time interface, torque / speed connection box, artificial star adapter, current transducers, high voltage probes, and much more.  Please order proper input cables for current and voltage when needed.
