Automotive Testing Expo Europe sees the premiere of CSM’s ECAT ADMM 4 HS, a high-speed A/D measurement module. The newcomer is said to combine very high sampling rates with user-friendly connection and time-synchronous data acquisition using EtherCAT as the data interface. CSM hopes that this will assist in the optimization of tomorrow’s combustion engines – for example, measuring displacement, combustion chamber pressure, vibration and acceleration – as well as in the development of electrified traction systems.
The large measurement range of up to 90V in combination with a maximum sampling rate of up to 800 kS/sec per channel (currently only with CSM’s XCP-Gateway in combination with the CSM DAQ tool or Vector CANape) enables the precise dynamic signal acquisition and analysis of transient effects while switching high-current actuators like those used in an electrical steering. Also, as a result of the synchronous sampling of all channels, the phase relationship between voltage and current on complex loads can be measured in high resolution.
All settings can be easily controlled by CSM’s configuration tool, xx-Scan Config, which supports the entire portfolio of CSM measurement modules. Among other things, xx-Scan Config also processes the data from sensors with TEDS abilities, which can be queried via the module’s built-in TEDS interface (compliant with IEEE 1451.4).
CSM is exhibiting on booth 1728 at Automotive Testing Expo 2015 Europe, which continues at Messe Stuttgart, Germany, until Thursday 18th June.
