Test instrumentation manufacturer hybrid vehicle battery test system

Hybrid Vehicle Battery Test System for high-voltage battery testing from Sakor Technologies Inc. is said to perform all types of performance and durability cycling, including complex profiles and road load simulations. System includes a high-efficiency, line-regenerative dc power source.  During discharge modes, absorbed power is regenerated back to the ac mains instead of being dissipated as wasted heat, which helps sustainability efforts and "green" initiatives.

Okemos, MI– Sakor Technologies Inc., a manufacturer of automated test instrumentation systems for a wide range of applications, has introduced its Hybrid Vehicle Battery Test System for high-voltage battery testing. The company says the system is extremely energy efficient and can effectively perform all types of performance and durability cycling, including complex profiles and road load simulations.
At the heart of the system lies a high-efficiency, line-regenerative dc power source.

During discharge modes, absorbed power is regenerated back to the ac mains instead of being dissipated as wasted heat, which is common practice among other battery testing systems. This method generates greater power efficiency and measurably reduces overall operating costs, which helps with companies' sustainability efforts
Driven by a DynoLAB EM controller, the Hybrid Vehicle Battery Test System has DynoLAB’s ability to automate all types of performance, durability, and continuous cycling operations, including full road load simulation. In fact, the system can function both as a battery tester and as a battery simulator. Integration with a HybriDyne Hybrid Driveline Dynamometer creates a system capable of testing complete hybrid drivelines and subsystems with or without actual batteries in circuit.nsistent and accurate test data.         
The Hybrid Battery Test System is available with voltages of up to 1,000 V dc.

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
