AVL X-meter™

Master power flow and energy distribution

AVL x-meter

Achieving exceptional efficiency, performance, longevity and duty cycles in electrified vehicles comes with its own challenges. The AVL X-meter™ helps you to master tasks such as in-vehicle energy balance measurement, range testing, precise re-charging energy measurement and pre-compliance tests.

To measure these component interactions, we have created the AVL X-meter. This multi-channel device calculates electrical power and energy flow instantly and accurately by measuring up to 10 different electrical loads and sources, including batteries, external charging stations, generators and recuperating devices. 

The secret to a well-designed, highly efficient battery electric or hybrid vehicle with low total emissions and CO2 footprint lies not just in the optimization of the individual vehicle components. It also lies in a power and energy management strategy that enables these components to work together and support each other. This leads to exceptional efficiency, performance, duty cycles and longevity of the vehicle.


Accuracy and Repeatability

The system can be operated as a stand-alone unit with only minimal user input for parameterization. Data processing and calculations are done in the device itself with the results transferred to data management solutions such as PEMS (portable emission measurement system), AVL iGEM chassis dyno emission testbed or AVL PUMA™ via standard CAN or Ethernet connections. 

Additional features include:

  • The highest possible accuracy and repeatability in real-life on-road testing
  • Use in either stand-alone (SL) mode or optional AVL IndiCom™ mode

Operational Flexibility

With the software AVL IndiCom the user can freely define calculations.

Data Traceability

Automated checks ensure data traceability.  

Safety First

X-meter ensures anytime that operators are protected from high voltages. 

Configuration According to Customer Needs

The input channels of the AVL X-meter can be assigned and configured according to customer needs thanks to AVL IndiCom user interface. Signal RMS values, instantaneous power or integrated electrical energy calculations can be freely defined. 

Automated Checks

To ensure the data traceability of the equipment used, the system offers automated checks for fast and error-proof device identification and auto parameterization. We offer calibration and recalibration services for devices and individual sensors at independent certified institutions.

Safety Features for the User

Designed with safety in mind, the system ensures that operators are protected from high voltages at all times. The length of high-power lines can be minimized thanks to the new high voltage probe. The probe itself can be placed closest to the high voltage electrodes of the battery or HV-power lines.
