Published: 26 June 2012 - Rachael Morling
HBM is hosting a free drop-in event with BBQ for automotive design and test engineers to highlight ways of improving the efficiency of hybrid drives by correctly capturing and analysing all relevant test data.
The event will be at The Heritage Motor Centre in Warwickshire on Wednesday 18th July from 9am to 3pm.
The technological centrepiece will be HBM’s My Car, a vehicle fitted with a comprehensive range of instrumentation that enables the capture and analysis of different data. There will also be several stands exploring in-depth solutions for capturing data from the mechanical and electrical components found in a variety of hybrid drives ranging from parallel hybrids through to fuel cell vehicles.
Jonathan Green, HBM’s senior sales engineer, commented: “It is all about the ability to capture and analyse different data easily so as to calculate and improve the efficiency of hybrid drives.'
Furthermore, several end users will speak about specific applications, and HBM’s sales engineers will be on hand to provide additional information and advice. Topics covered during the day will include measuring the efficiency of hybrid electric drive systems accurately using HBM’s eDrive system, the importance of upgrading DAQ systems, and the need for managed obsolescence.
Several products from HBM’s range of DAQ equipment will be displayed, and the company will also be demonstrating its nCode Large-scale Customer Usage Monitoring Programme for Hybrid Vehicles.
