View (or re-view) one of the most informative webinars of 2021 on Functional Safety in HV Battery Applications/Management Systems
Due to the popularity of this topic, we have arranged with IEEE to make this program available again (for a limited time) to our customers and other interested engineers/BMS innovators.
In this webinar, one of Isabellenhütte’s Precision Management experts, Matthias Hilpert (North America) covers the following topics as they’ve been recently updated:
- What regulations are replacing the IEC 61508 Functional Safety Standard? (And can 500 pages of this new ISO 26262 spec be simplified?)
- How can you significantly improve the functional safety of your HV battery designs using the latest monitoring options?
- What are the practical and cost differences between active and passive isolation monitoring approaches?
- Is there an optimal way to choose sensing points within an HV BMS?
At the end of the webinar, viewers receive a “sneak peek” of a 3rd-generation, ASIL-rated solution for flexibly monitoring key parameters within your HV BMS systems.

Back by popular demand: A real-time demonstration of shunt-based current sensing using delta-sigma (∆∑) modulation
One of our more requested webinar reposts is this explanation of the use of delta-sigma (∆∑) modulation in shunt-based current sensing.
In this classic webinar, Matthias Hilpert reviews the principles of shunt-based current sensing using delta-sigma (∆∑) modulation, followed by a showcase demonstration of the set-up in action. Viewers will come to understand the advantages and drawbacks of two approaches to current measurement: current transformers on the output side vs. shunt-based current sensing. Some of the advantages of the shunt-based approach include:
- Capturing signal that is already in digital format
- High accuracy/low-offset
- Inherent interference isolation
- Compact footprint
- Fast overcurrent detection/reporting
Electrifying Vehicles Challenges and Solutions. A great (second) chance to preview tomorrow’s shunt based current sensing breakthroughs.
See Dr. Jan Marien’s webinar on the next generation of battery management current sense modules and best-practices for engineering-in functional safety for electric vehicles.
We recorded 2020’s most popular webinar in case you missed it. (But it’s going away again soon!) Some key learnings include:
- Current sensing developments in battery management systems
- Ground breaking metal injection molded (MIM) shunts enable completely new levels of system integration
- Newly-designed components for managing high currents (BAX shunts)
- How alternative alloys provide temp-isolation advantages over stainless steel
- State-of-the-art components for power-sensing modules
- Strategies for managing functional safety in complex products
Dr. Jan Marien is the Executive Vice President of R&D at Isabellenhütte and a recognized expert in the area of battery management technology. His one-hour presentation covers a lot of ground—from current-sensing to shunt-based assembly design… all the way to a strategic framework for managing functional safety in EVs. It’s live through the end of December… and you are welcome to share the link with any interested colleagues or team members.
