EtherCAT I/O terminal supports high-voltage measurement for renewable energy and electric vehicles

Nov. 1, 2023

Designed for batteries, generators and motor applications up to 1,000 V, ELM3002-0205 EtherCAT I/O terminal enables precise and reliable high-voltage measurements. It supports four measurement ranges of ±60, ±120, ±500 and ±1,000 V, respectively, and is particularly suitable for electric vehicles (EV) and renewable energy applications.

With powerful oversampling functionality, dual-channel ELM3002-0205 achieves a maximum sampling rate of 50 ksps per channel. This high sampling rate in high-voltage applications enables deeper data insights in energy applications. In generator control, for example, faster response times are possible. Moreover, high measurement accuracy enables more accurate frequency detection, which in turn improves frequency stabilization in power grids. In battery testing applications, load and quality tests can be reliably performed due to the high sampling rates.

Specialized for extra-high voltages, ELM3002-0205 is the newest member of the ELM3xxx measurement family, which now includes more than 30 high-precision, industrial-grade EtherCAT terminals with robust metal housings.
