The solution is based on a module system called CRONOS flex by imc Berlin. The system consists of modules communicating over a bus very similar to CANbus. The system is modular, for each specific measurement it is possible to “assemble” the instrument from individual modules so that it contains all the necessary technology and at the same time it is as small as possible. The mechanical concept is illustrated by the figure. By simply snapping the modules to the base unit, a complete system is created, with the number of channels required, in the form of a single device.
On the above principle, it is possible to build a device that will contain a maximum of 128 channels. All measured channels are equipped with thermocouple temperature sensors. The PELI case was delivered for transport.
The basic system module is equipped with a left-hand handle that incorporates a DC power supply, including uninterruptible power supply for 30 seconds. The module is equipped with a pair of CANbus interfaces and a pair of LIN and its connection to the computer is possible via LAN cable or via WiFi. The module is equipped with sufficient memory for autonomous measurement.
The eight-channel ISO2-8 modules are used for analog signal collection. Each of them measures 8 voltage channels in the range of 50 mV to 60V, currents in mA ranges and temperatures from most types of thermocouples and Pt100. The maximum sampling frequency is 5 kHz. Input voltage allows to measure directly on the vehicle network, without voltage divider.
System configuration is provided by the customer. It is configured and operated via the imcStudio software package. Data evaluation is performed by Famos professional. Our company provides on-demand support.
