"AVL Development Ecosystem: Hardware and Software combined to improveyour Testfield Operation"
The operation of modern battery test laboratories confronts operators with challenges in many dimensions. In extreme cases, it means operating many thousands of test channels, which are fed with several hundred thousand testjobs per year. The resulting measurement data must be handled and analyzed efficiently, and the correct results derived for development and validation. Information, equipment, and personnel must be brought together in the best possible way.
This article presents some of these challenges in detail and shows how they can be solved in an optimal way with the integrated AVL system solution.
