Lockheed Martin Selects NH Research Test Solution for eCASS Program

NH Research Model 4300 modular DC load solution to support U.S. Navy test systems

4350 DC Electronic Load (front)NH Research Inc. (NHR), a leading provider of power electronics test systems and instruments for the aerospace, defense, automotive, and energy industries, announces Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems has selected NHR’s Model 4300 modular DC load solution for the electronic Consolidated Automated Support System (eCASS) program test systems to support the U.S. Navy.

NHR’s 4300 modular DC electronic load subsystem has become a popular choice for aerospace and defense automated test equipment (ATE) systems where space, performance, and reliability are important. The 4300 platform provides six different load sizes and a digital power analyzer in a small footprint and can eliminate the need for additional relays and other test measurement devices.

“NH Research has been working with Lockheed Martin on the original CASS program and now the eCASS for over 30 years,” said Peter O’Brien, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at NH Research. “NH Research’s proven 4300 platform, combined with our automated test systems experience, enables us to provide Lockheed Martin with reliable and cost effective solutions.”

“The 4300 platform from NH Research provides us with the performance, reliability, and long-term support we need for the eCASS Program. ,” said Ed Melville, Automated Test Systems Portfolio Manager at Lockheed Martin. “We look forward to working together in the future.”

NH Research, Inc. Releases Model 9430 Regenerative 4-Quadrant AC Load

Regenerative AC Load Model 9430 - NH Research, Inc. (NHR)

A Current-regulated, 4-quadrant AC Load with Selectable Phase Inputs/outputs & a Built-in Waveform Digitizing Measurement System

NH Research, Inc. (NHR) continues its technology leadership in test and measurement by introducing the 9430 4-Quadrant Regenerative AC Load with HiVARTM Technology. The load is compact, modular and field expandable which is ideal for bench-level use or designing into automated test equipment (ATE) systems. An advanced built-in measurement system further simplifies loading by providing the essential functions of a digital multi-meter, current transducer, power analyzer, and oscilloscope. This combination of HiVAR technology, expandable power and built-in measurements make the 9430 an ideal AC load, providing the power and measurement needed for general laboratory use.

HiVAR technology extends the usable true power (kW) and eliminates the VA de-rating penalty when loading with high reactive power levels. It accomplishes this by providing continuous operation up to the maximum voltage, current and true power (kW). Systems with HiVAR break the VA-only rating tradition in two ways: First, the load is able to transition between high-voltage and high-current regions along the true power curve without requiring either a range change or requiring the output to be switched off to change ranges. Second and often overlooked, reactive power (VARS) increases the apparent power (VA) but not the true power (kW) required in testing. The 9430 is able to maintain full current and full voltage up to full true power rating providing this additional reactive power (VARS) without reducing the true power (kW) capability of the load.

The advanced built-in measurement system is based on a 125kSample/sec digitizer, which is able to take advantage of separate voltage and current ranges, further improving measurement accuracy. These range selections are independent allowing any combination of high & low ranges to be selected for voltage and current, occur seamlessly and do not require the output to be turned off.

With NHRs new 9430 AC Load, It has never been easier to simulate true displacement-current shifted current draws, programmable and slewable power factors, harmonics and distorted loading, and programmable loading transients.

Advanced Test Equipment Rentals & NH Research, Inc. Announce 9300 Rental Agreement

High Voltage Battery Test System 9300 Series Advanced Test Equipment Rentals (ATEC) and NH Research, Inc. (NHR) today announced a rental partnership agreement for NHR’s 9300 Battery Test Systems. NHR is a world-leading manufacturer of power electronics and battery test instruments as well as test systems. ATEC is a worldwide leading rental company of test equipment for military, defense, aerospace, communications, semiconductor, consumer electronics, and many other sectors and able to supply NHR’s high-power battery charge/discharge test systems.

NHR’s 9300 Battery Test System is designed for either characterizing or emulating all battery chemistries including lead-acid, nickel-cadmium, and lithium-ion. This test system is a regenerative, fast-acting, modular, dual-range, bi-directional DC source/load providing up to 100kW per system in either a high-current (600V/333A) or high-voltage (1,200V/167A) range. When more than 100kW is needed, the modular design allows easy expansion up to 1.2MW in 100kW increments making the 9300 ideally suited for energy storage testing used in electric-vehicles (EV) and energy storage systems (ESS).

The 9300 is fully programmable allowing it to act as a fast-acting source (charge), a regenerative dc load (discharge), or a bi-directional voltage source (battery) with any programmed combination of constant power, constant voltage, and constant-current regulation limits. It’s frequently used for battery charge/discharge cycling or emulates a battery for testing chargers as well as other battery related power devices.

Known as the latest in battery turn-key solutions, the 100 kW NHR 9300 is a welcome addition to ATEC’s continuously expanding inventory of power supply and loads test equipment. ATEC offers long and short-term rentals of test and measurement equipment for a variety of industries and applications. Customers prefer to rent from ATEC to test out equipment like the NHR’s 9300 before they buy, when they have a short-term need, if they need an urgent replacement or for any other rental reason. Because of an extensive inventory of in-stock products and the latest technology on the market (like that used within NHR’s products), ATEC is able to create flexible, affordable rental plans and pricing options to match specific client needs, with no waiting. The experienced technical and customer support staff helps provide the knowledge, equipment, and solutions customers need to perform their tests. ATEC also offers many other NHR products, including standalone AC and DC loads, and power supplies.

“The NHR 9300 gives our clients another exceptional piece of equipment with which they can test batteries, fuel cells, ultra-capacitators, and other energy storage devices,” said Louis Marin, Team Lead of the Power Supplies and Loads department at ATEC. Marin, who is well versed in battery and loads equipment, is confident the NHR 9300 will serve ATEC clients well. “The 9300 High Voltage Battery Test System can be applied to testing for automotive, aviation, industrial, marine, grid storage, research, and other lab market purposes, or connected in parallel for even more Kilowatts,” Marin said. “Many of our customers will benefit from having this technology as a rental offering, and we are happy to provide it.”

“NHR designs products which provide immense flexibility in hardware as well as software solutions to our customers”, said Martin Weiss, Product Director at NHR. “The battery industry is no longer required to adjust their testing schemes to meet the either the hardware or software limitations imposed by other equipment suppliers.” Martin said. “Working with ATEC allows customers to access our solutions very rapidly making it easier to engineers to justify a future capital purchase or cover a short-term testing need. We look forward to working with you directly or with our partners in the near future.”

NHR’s 9300 Series High Voltage Battery Test System is available for purchase from NHR, or rent from ATEC.
