As electric transport continues to gain traction, accurate energy measurements become increasingly crucial for optimising energy distribution in the grid. Elscolab, a distributor of measurement, control, and laboratory equipment, seeks to address key challenges shaping the industry. Through its partnership with German interface technology and process analytic group Knick, the firm offers a number of solutions that are helping to accelerate the shift towards electric transport. With the exclusive license to distribute Knick products in the Benelux region, Elscolab has helped introduce crucial technologies such as Knick’s EN 50463-approved voltage and current measuring transducers for rolling stock. “Accurate energy measurements in electric transport are important to optimise the distribution of energy in the grid,” Roy Boeren of Elscolab tells RailTech, “Specifically for measuring electrical parameters such as voltage, current, resistance, loadcell, thermocouple and pulse frequencies.” With accurate, robust and reliable high-voltage signals, these units streamline downstream processes during traction power supply in substations or for current and voltage measurement, signal isolation and conversion on rolling stock at all times without interference. These special converters can be used at operating voltages up to 4800 VAC/DC, and isolation voltages up to 20 kV AC.
