ELVIS – the mobile test lab

If a charging station cannot be taken to a laboratory, then the laboratory must go to the charging station. The electric vehicle charger inspection system (ELVIS) is a fully equipped lab that can examine any installed electric charging station in detail. And it can do this whatever the weather and wherever the location because ELVIS is mobile. In addition, ELVIS provides testing techniques for charging stations with adjustable voltage and current test points as well as very high power consumption. Innovative combinations of regenerative direct current loads with a resistive load connected in parallel have been realized in order to react to mobile requirements. (Technology Offer 574)
