The current probe ICP-3 forms the central measured value acquisition of an Electric Check Out System (ECOS), which is used in the automotive industry for end-of-line quality assurance. Here the values for voltage and current are measured at the vehicle battery that vary in height and time response according to the switched-on consumers in the vehicle. The measured values are checked against presets in a database. In addition to an ADC that converts analog measuring signals to digital values the ICP-3 comes with a powerful processor, which performs the evaluation in no time.
Measuring the vehicle currents by means of a current probe has some benefits compared to a shunt as the vehicle circuit need not to be opened for adapting the measuring system. This avoids data loss and time-consuming teach-in processes in the electronic control units.
The current probe can be easily opened by the user, at the same time the mechanism absolutely reliable prevents opening by the grasped wire harness. To exchange instructions and test results with other DSA devices or a stationary computer, Bluetooth is used.
Battery charging status and radio connection status are clearly displayed
Mini-USB interface and transport lock switch are hidden behind the service flap
According to the configuration the charging station is used as storage for one to three Multi-Function Testers MFT-3 and for charging MFT batteries, and as storage and for charging of Intelligent Current Probes ICP.
