The HV Breakout Modules (BM) Type 3.3 have been specially designed for safe and precise three-phase measurement in HV power cables. The inner conductor currents and outer conductor voltages are directly acquired and output via XCP-on-Ethernet.
HV Breakout Module 3.3 can be used to perform three-phase power analyses directly in HV lines.
For this purpose, the HV Breakout Module 3.3 is inserted directly into the HV power cables by feeding the cables through cable glands into the interior of the module and connecting them there using ring terminals.
The HV Breakout Module 3.3C is connected to the cables via a PowerLok connector system and is interlock capable. This makes this variant particularly suitable for use in test benches.
The outer conductor voltages are measured directly. Current measurement is carried out via shunt modules which contain, among other things, a temperature sensor and a memory for calibration data for automatic online temperature compensation.
The sampling of voltage and current with immediate digitization in the aluminum housing of the HV Breakout Module provides optimum protection against electromagnetic interference.
With the option Calc. active, apparent and reactive power, power factor as well as the RMS values for current and voltage can be calculated directly in the module from the sampled measured values. Via XCP-on-Ethernet and CAN the calculated values are directly transmitted to the measurement computer or a data logger.

The measurement modules include an internal XCP gateway. Various options make it easy to expand the module to meet specific requirements.
The two versions of the HV Breakout Module 3.3 enable the electrical power analysis of electric vehicle motors without the use of classic power meters and current transformers. The modules are suitable for use in powertrain test benches as well as for mobile real-time measurement in the high-voltage electrical system of test vehicles.
The three-phase measurement with only one measurement device offers enormous installation, cost and space advantages.
The direct output of power and RMS values allows various analyses without the use of special hardware and software in the road test. More in-depth analyses, such as the investigation of leakage currents and symmetries as well as the correlation with measured values from further CSM measurement modules (e.g. temperatures) can be performed with the Vector CSM E-Mobility Measurement System.
