Meet the SL1040A Series Scienlab Charging Discovery System

The Keysight Scienlab Charging Discovery System Series (CDS) is a breakthrough solution for holistic test of all AC and DC charging interfaces of electric vehicles (EV) and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE). Thanks to its modular and innovative design, you can configure the CDS to customers' specific needs and replace multiple real EV/EVSE with one test solution to ensure an optimal price-performance ratio.

  • Automated functional, conformance, interoperability and quality testing for R&D, End-of-line (EOL) and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) applications  
  • Time synchronous measurement and decoding of communication and power signals
  • Scalable and futureproof hardware design according to CharIN e.V. CCS Test System
  • CE, UL and KC-Mark conformance, certified by CSA Group
  • Extensive Test Case Library for automated conformance testing of CCS, CHAdeMO and GB/T standard


The Scienlab Charging Discovery System from Keysight covers all test areas as an all-in-one system.

  • Independent, reproducible test of any EV and EVSE charging interface through real-time emulation of all electrical interfaces (incl. communication signals and energy transfer) of counterpart
  • Automated verification of product performance and prototypes (incl. fault conditions) long before market release
  • Real-time Man-In-the-Middle mode for easy analysis of interoperability issues between EV and EVSE
  • Integration into custom Hardware in the Loop (HiL) solutions through open and fully documented remote interface (LAN)


With the Charging Discovery System it is very easy to secure your charging technology products for the global market.

  • Verification of charging components for international markets through emulation of charging communication standards and low-voltage grids
  • Covers all charging and EMC standards and norms: EN 61851 -21 -2, EN 55011, CISPR 25 Ed., TL81000
  • Verification of charging columns, wall boxes, and vehicles for compliance with norms
