The robust, airworthy test & measurement system allows for the combining of video information with data acquisition from thousands of channels. Both, rack and spatially distributed installation are possible. In addition to the data acquisition from a wide variety of analog sensors (and real-time calculations), the system supports buses like ARINC, IENA, CAN, AFDX, etc. To stabilize the power supply, the imc system is equipped with UPS. Furthermore, the telemetric signal transmission saves time. By means of PCM, selected data will be transmitted online to the control center on the ground.
Discover the possibilities - powerful analysis, visualization and documentation of measurement data: The new version of the signal analysis software imc FAMOS 7.2 reveals a whole set of technological innovations.
How do vehicle components behave under extreme loads? In which areas is a component stressed and how can it be optimized? How is the material fatigued after thousands of test kilometers of a prototype fleet? Durability testing provides answers to all of these questions.
The fast CAN FD provides more bandwidth than CAN with less complexity than FlexRay.
Typical application areas of the new imc CAN FD interface are found mainly in the automotive industry, which requires faster bus systems due to the increasing data volume. CAN FD is a robust and cost-effective alternative to FlexRay.
By combining both real time automation, control and measurement technology in one integrated system, imc is offering powerful measurement devices and software solutions that can help you to solve challenges in component testing tasks and speed up processes in both design and operation of test stands.
With the increasing complexity of the latest types of aircrafts, the requirements placed on today’s flight test systems have also increased. A wide variety of signals and sensors, as well as high channel counts from digital sources and aircraft buses, are acquired over multiple channels, monitored online and, synchronously stored in a common data sink. imc offers a modular flight test system based on imc measurement systems and video technology.
We would like to cordially invite you to visit us at the InnoTrans 2016 trade show in Berlin and experience our innovative measurement solutions for the railway industry. InnoTrans is the leading international trade show for railway technologies. Their unique combination of exhibits, presentations and railway displays delivers the most important showcase for global innovations in railway transportation and provides an outstanding look into the future of the industry.
The Finnish company Marine Alutech Oy Ab produces professional work boats for navy, coast guard, sea rescue and port authority use. At sea trials, imc measurement systems like imc C-SERIES are used to capture and record data from IMU systems and GPS sensors. Force, position, RPM and vibration signals, along with engine control data is collected simultaneously. The signals are later analyzed with the signal analysis software imc FAMOS and the results are used for improving the boat dynamics.
In order to perform measurements on rotating or moving components, information must be transmitted telemetrically. With the new digital Dx telemetry, universal transmitter units are available for different channel counts and sensor assignments. Each unit can handle acquisition and transmission of up to six sensor signals – e.g., two full-bridge or four half-bridge strain gauges, or voltage and temperature signals.
When running a series of tests, the measurement data can quickly pile up to unmanageable amounts - a virtual haystack, so to speak. However, if specific information is needed from the extensive collection of data, an intelligent measurement database solution pays off. After all, who has time to look for the infamous "needle in a haystack"? imc SEARCH provides the solution at the push of a button.
To meet varying user requirements, three new view modes are available. The “Compact” and “Standard” views are ideal for users preferring a clear and easy-to-use range of functions, although they can switch to the “Complete” expert view with one mouse-click.
A guarantee for absolute transparency of the CAN interface that leaves the bus completely unaffected - that's what is sometimes required by customers for certain applications. No problem for imc BUSDAQ and devices of the imc CRONOS series. The following technical paper explaines, what is behind that issue - mainly three aspects.
In 2008, Takata-Petri, the global supplier of automotive safety systems, opened a new research and development center in Berlin. In the district of Wedding, the company is testing products such as steering wheels, air-bags and seat belts for both passenger and commercial cars and trucks. For testing steering wheels, Takata currently has ten imc test stands in use. The services are an important element of the "overall package".
