The system enables measurement of a wide range of quantities, such as:
- measurement of analog voltage, using isolated channels,
- measurement of pulse width modulated (PWM) signal 200Hz and 400 Hz,
- digital outputs,
- analog output with the possibility of displaying measured values from the CANbus, the measured channels, and the “virtual channels” carrying information obtained by calculation.
The measurement uses the distributed CANSAS system.
The measuring modules are interconnected with CANbus. The BUSdaq-4 module, equipped with four CANbus inputs, controls the system. This module is also equipped with a built-in LCD display, which is very convenient for autonomous operation without a computer. The module is also equipped with a PCMCIA slot with 500MB semiconductor memory. The module is connected to a local Ethernet network.
The FAMOS software is installed on the control computer and used to analyze and display measured data. This program is used worldwide in tens of thousands of licenses. The program enables both real-time data analysis and post-evaluation. Of course, there is also comprehensive support of the outputs in a protocol.
The whole measuring system is placed in a case that protects it from environmental influences. The case is equipped with connectors that enable standardized connection of various measured quantities.
