In the fast-growing hybrid and electric vehicle (EV) markets, Midtronics is leading the way by working closely with manufacturers to develop solutions that match the complexity of these new battery and electrical systems.
We received our first hybrid/EV-related essential tool order from General Motors to supply the SPS Programming Support Tool EL-49642 for 2-mode hybrid vehicle programming support in 2008.
In 2010, Midtronics launched the HYB-1000 -- the first Hybrid Battery System Analyzer for service technicians. Later that year, Midtronics delivered its first essential tool for an EV OEM -- the GRX-5000 EV Battery Module Diagnostic Station. The GRX-5000 enables technicians to perform cost-effective, module-level service on Li-on EV battery modules that are part of the Nissan Leaf battery pack.
The GRX-5100 EV/HEV Battery Service Tool -- the industry's first high-voltage EV/HEV vehicle battery service and de-power tool -- has completed initial field testing at General Motors, with full-scale production and shipping scheduled to begin before the end of 2012. The GRX-5100 will perform full battery pack service, including balancing, charging in no-start situations, and full de-powering after a severe collision to a safe level for storage, recycling or shipment.
Midtronics is committed to ongoing development of innovative new hybrid and EV service solutions for charging/discharging and diagnostics of other battery modules and full packs.
The Midtronics GRX-5100 EV/HEV Battery Service Tool is the industry’s first high-voltage hybrid/EV battery service and de-power tool.
The Midtronics HYB-1000 Hybrid Battery Tester and Electrical System Analyzer helps you expand into the Hybrid service business by providing technicians a safe, one-person test for all of today’s hybrid vehicles.
