Sendyne Corporation

Sendyne Corp. will provide each team with:

1 Free SIM100 Ground Fault Detection / Isolation Monitor Module; students are responsible for $20 shipping cost.

Short Description:

The Sendyne SIM100MOD is a high voltage isolation monitoring device for EV/HEVs capable of operating correctly even when the battery is active, and experiencing large voltage variations. The SIM100MOD continuously monitors the isolation resistance between a vehicle’s IT (Isolated Terra) power system and chassis for deterioration of insulation and potentially dangerous levels of leakage current. Based on the Sendyne SIM100 IC, which utilizes an advanced algorithm developed by Sendyne’s modeling team, the module is compatible with all relevant standards for EVSE and Charging Stations, including providing two channels for Minimum path detection. Automotive grade; communicates over CAN 2.0B.

1 SFP200 high accuracy current, voltage and temperature measurement module at cost.

Short Description:

The SFP200MOD precisely measures currents from mA to kA, while simultaneously measuring three high-voltage potentials (800 V nominal, 1000 V / channel max) accurately. Designed specifically for the needs of electric vehicles (EVs) and Energy Storage Systems (ESS), this automotive grade member of Sendyne’s SFP family communicates via an isolated CAN 2.0B interface (500 kbit/s). The module is designed around the Sendyne SFP200 IC and achieves an accuracy of ±1.0 % for current measurement over the whole operating temperature range of –40 °C to +125 °C.
