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 your specific needs. Replace multiple real EV/EVSE with one test solution to ensure an optimal price-performance ratio.

  • Covers automated functional, conformance, interoperability, and quality test for R&D, end-of-line (EOL) and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) applications
  • Perform time synchronous measurement as well as decode communication and power signals
  • Ensure scalability and futureproof your hardware design according to CharIN e.V. CCS Test System
  • Conforms to CE, UL and KC-Mark, certified by CSA Group
  • Includes extensive test case library for automated conformance testing of CCS, CHAdeMO and GB/T standard

VERISCO is now Part of Keysight Technologies

We are pleased to announce that Keysight has completed the acquisition of the assets of verisco GmbH (VERISCO). This acquisition expands our electric vehicle (EV) charging test portfolio. VERISCO, based in Dortmund, Germany, is a specialist in electric vehicle (EV) and EV supply equipment (EVSE) compliance solutions. VERISCO's interdisciplinary engineering team continuously contributes to international standardization communities in ISO and IEC and supports open test platforms like the International ISO 15118 Testing Symposium and CharIN Testivals.
