Berlin, 26 June 2018 – At the SENSOR+TEST 2018 trade fair in Nürnberg, Germany, KMT - Kraus Messtechnik GmbH together with imc Meßsysteme GmbH presented their new MTP-NT multi-channel measurement system. The system is characterized by a completely modular design and can be used both in stationary and telemetric configurations. It consists of a controller module, an inductive supply unit and freely combinable sensor modules. With two basic module types, one universal for voltage, strain gauge and IEPE sensors and one temperature module for thermocouples and PT100/1000, all typical sensors can be acquired. Depending on the task, the user can combine the modules to suit the number and type of sensors and form a customized system with up to 256 channels.
At the trade fair SENSOR+TEST in Nuremberg, Germany, imc Meßsysteme GmbH is presenting the new generation of its multi-channel measurement system imc SPARTAN. Equipped with a new base unit, the systems now support the entire imc portfolio of field and vehicle bus interfaces including CAN-FD. In addition, the new generation enables synchronization via network (NTP) and the fast IRIG-B Standard. The measurement modules also include 16-channel isolated temperature and voltage measurement amplifiers, as well as bridge amplifiers with a maximum sampling rate of 500 Hz per channel. A new, economically priced module has been added for connecting LVDT-based sensors, such as inductive displacement transducers. In addition to analog measurement amplifiers, imc SPARTAN offers digital inputs and outputs, as well as pulse counter inputs for incremental encoders.
CAEMAX Technology GmbH has developed a new system for wireless temperature measurement on vehicle wheels. The system is based on CAEMAX Dx telemetry and measures up to four thermocouples on one wheel. With a sampling rate of 200 Hz, even highly dynamic temperature gradients can be precisely examined during brake tests. A robust housing (IP67) reliably protects against wind and weather. Using a mounting plate, the telemetry unit can be attached quickly and securely to the vehicle's wheel bolts, thus ensuring that nothing stands in the way of even the toughest applications on the test track. Thanks to a powerful rechargeable battery, up to 50 hours of operation with only one charge is possible.
Berlin, 22 January 2018 – The world-wide data analysis software imc FAMOS helps engineers, technicians and scientists daily to efficiently analyze large amounts of data from research, development, production and maintenance. With the new imc FAMOS 7.3 version, imc Meßsysteme GmbH has added optimized digital value for its users. In addition to improved usability, the software also provides an interface to the popular open-source statistics package “R”, providing access to the expertise of a global community.
Berlin, 14 August 2017 – imc Meßsysteme GmbH has optimized and reissued the imc C-SERIES measurement device. The new version of the imc C-SERIES-FD now comes standard with a CAN-FD interface, which supports the new, fast CAN bus as well as the conventional CAN bus. The internal short-term UPS, which has been converted from lead-gel batteries to environment-friendly and maintenance-free Super-Caps, is also optimized.
With the new imc BUSDAQflex data logger, imc Meßsysteme GmbH is offering a new multi-bus logger that can directly acquire data from all relevant vehicle and machine buses. Modern networking possibilities via WLAN/UMTS allow a wireless connection: whether to a tablet or directly to the Internet of Things (IoT).
In order to be ready for the future, imc is expanding its portfolio of interfaces for field and vehicle buses with the new CAN FD bus. The imc CAN FD interface is now available for all imc measurement devices.
imc CANSASfit is particularly well-suited for mobile testing in harsh environments. Whether in the engine compartment of a car or in the cab of a piece of heavy machinery: the robust housing offers reliable protection against water spray, dirt and vibrations. The module’s wide temperature range from -40° to +125°C allows testing to be performed during summer or winter, as well as in climate chambers.
The telemetry and sensor specialists at CAEMAX Technology are extending their proven Dx telemetry systems to include a high-temperature version. The Dx-HT telemetry system is ideal for use in ambient temperatures from -40° to +125° C.
CAEMAX is presenting a wheel torque transducer that is designed for increased environmental requirements in winter testing. Even in the cold, snow and ice, the WTT-Dx wheel torque transducer can acquire the distribution of drive and braking torques to the wheels with exceptionally high precision.
Testing vehicles and machinery as complete units is being carried out more frequently and has greater importance - thus, imc Meßsysteme GmbH has extended their line-up of measurement solutions to include yet another component: the new imc WAVE sound and vibration analysis software.
