The 12 V lead-fleece high-capacity battery has a capacity of 75 Ah and is used wherever a self-sufficient supply of the measuring technology used is to be ensured. Thus, the product is suitable both for applications in electric and hybrid vehicles as well as in conventional vehicles with internal combustion engines. However, especially in electric and hybrid vehicles, it must be ensured that the measurement technology installed in the test vehicle does not affect vehicle energy management. For this reason, Ipetronik has developed a mobile power station with the MIP-500, which decouples the power supply from the measurement technology from the on-board network. It supports both the stationary AC charging process via the 230V network as well as the vehicle-powered DC charging of the integrated battery.

The charging circuit used can limit the current used by the on-board network for charging in two stages. Likewise, the electronics prevents the 12 V lead-fleece high-capacity battery from being fed back to the vehicle’s battery. The integrated programmable control enables the activation / deactivation of the DC charge, via the evaluation of CAN signals, so that, for example, it can be programmed that DC charging in a hybrid vehicle is to take place only when the internal combustion engine is running. Due to the high charging current in stationary operation, the power station is ready for use again after a short charging period.

Other features include on-board network charging with selectable current limitation, the programmable CAN interface for vehicle-bus connection, the high vibration resistance for automotive applications, and the mounting kit for mounting within the test vehicle. The power station, specified according to IP protection class IP 21 (ISO 20653 – 2013), has dimensions of 1000 mm x 300 mm x 350 mm (L x H x D) and weighs 50 kg. It operates in the temperature range from -20°C to + 50°C. 85 to 265 VAC or 12 VDC electrical systems are required for voltage supply. Ppower consumption is typically 1020 watts.

The product will be presented at the Automotive Testing Expo Europe in Stuttgart.
