CSM xx-Scan Config V7.9.0 Release

The new version of xx-Scan Config is now available. You can download the configuration software for all CSM measurement modules in our download section.

New Features in V7.9.0:

  • Additional functions in ADMM 8 pro and ADMM 8 pro2: As sensor characteristic tables are now supported, non-linear input signals can already be linearized while the measurement is running.
  • ADMM 8 pro supports an adjustable history depth when an average value is output. The average value is thus independent of the module’s sampling rate.
  • This release includes new firmware versions for the modules THMM 16 classic, THMM 16 pro, ADMM 8 pro and ADMM 8 pro2. New functions are only available if the new firmware has been installed. The firmware is included in the scope of delivery.


Apart from these major changes, further improvements were implemented. Please refer to the release notes of the software package for details.


Please note:
xx-Scan Config support of Windows XP/Vista will end in December 2015. As from 2016 new versions of xx-Scan Config won’t work under Windows XP/Vista.

Our recommendation:
Windows XP/Vista users who want to continue to use xx-Scan Config in 2016 need to update the operating system to a more recent version, at least Windows 7 or higher, by the end of December 2015

Sampling rates up to 800 kSa/s

Premiere of CSM’s ECAT ADMM 4 HighSpeed measurement module at the Automotive Testing Expo Europe


Achieving higher sampling rates for precise data acquisition in order to optimize tomorrow's combustion engines and its auxiliary systems as well as electrified traction systems belong to the key issues the world of automotive measurement technology is dealing with. With the High Speed A/D measurement module ECAT ADMM 4 HS, CSM provides an appropriate answer, combining very high sampling rates with a user-friendly connection scheme and time-synchronous data acquisition using EtherCAT® as data interface.


Precise dynamic acquisition of transient effects through sampling rates up to 800 kSa/s

The large measurement range of up to 90 V in combination with a maximum sampling rate of up to 800 kSamples/sec per channel allows 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 at high resolution.


The combination of very high measurement speed and integrated sensor excitation makes ECAT ADMM 4 HS a perfect choice for all fields of application where fast measurement processes and a high degree of operating reliability are essential, e.g. for measurement of displacement, combustion chamber pressure, vibration, acceleration etc. in combustion engines.


Easy configuration with CSM’s xx-Scan Config Software

All settings can be easily controlled by CSM’s configuration tool xx Scan Config, supporting the entire portfolio of CSM measurement modules. Among other things, xx-Scan Config also processes the data from Sensores with TEDS abilities, which can be queried via the module’s built-in TEDS interface (compliant with IEEE 1451.4).


EtherCAT® enables precise and synchronous measuring

Like all other CSM ECAT measurement modules, ECAT ADMM 4 HS communicates via a standard-compliant EtherCAT® interface. It can be operated on acquisition systems providing suitable EtherCAT® master software (e.g. MLab®) and appropriate configuration options. The measurement data rate, however, is limited to max. 10 kHz.


For applications with higher requirements regarding measurement data rate and synchronization, e.g. for multi-channel data acquisition from numerous devices of a measurement chain, CSM’s XCP-Gateway provides the means to convert the data from EtherCAT® to XCP-on-Ethernet for further processing and visualization in a measurement and calibration software, like e.g. CANape® and INCA®. Data processing with sampling rates up to 800kSamples/sec can currently only be realized with XCP-Gateway in combination with CSM DAQ tool or Vector CANape®.
