The new AES 5500 automotive transient emissions system from Teseq is the only complete solution for emission testing that is compliant to ISO 7637-2. This compliance makes this system the logical choice for testing the compatibility of conducted electrical transients of equipment installed in passenger cars and light commercial vehicles fitted with a 12-V electrical system. The AES 5500’s 100-A MC-type connectors are strategically placed and countersunk 50 mm above the ground plane to allow for precise cabling between the system’s switches, artificial network, and test bench. This versatile system has a separate control station for automatic, manual, or external triggering of switches and also gives the user complete control over where, when, and how the switches can be placed and controlled, including drive voltages for the relays. The precise switch placement, cable length, and industry standard relay footprint of the AES 5500 allow for testing to the standards of numerous manufacturers.The system offers clean, reliable 100-A operation with a very low voltage drop as well as a transient voltage of 440 V to protect against long-term deterioration by eliminating high voltage transients, spikes, and surges. The AES 5500 includes relay voltages of 12 V, 24 V and 42 V. The system’s non-repetitive electronic switch features an inrush current of up to 1,000 A, 10 ms or 300 A, 1 s.
