US Premiere of new ECAT ADMM 4 HS800
Hard- and software to measure data rates up to 800 kHz per channel
US premiere of CSM Products’ new analog measurement module ECAT ADMM 4 HS800 and the new data acquisition software CSMmeasure at the Automotive Testing Expo North America 2015.
CSMmeasure is the new easy-to-use data acquisition software for all CSM measurement modules. With just a few clicks the software leads the user from configuration to visualization of the measurement results. The software supports data rates up to 800 kHz per channel. Additionally, CSMmeasure records video and GPS data. Due to the new software, CSM Products, Inc. is now able to offer all-in-one solutions for complex measurement tasks from one source.
Data rates up to 800 kHz per channel for fast mobile measurements: This is what you get from the new EtherCAT®-based analog measurement module ECAT ADMM 4 HS800. With 4 synchronous inputs the module is ideal for precise dynamic acquisition of signal curves from combustion engines, electric motors and electric auxiliary systems. Thanks to the high protection class IP67 and the operating temperature range from -40°C to +125°C the module can be mounted directly in engine compartments. This reduces noise to an absolute minimum.
Precise A/D and temperature measurements at high-voltage (HV) components: CSM’s CAN-based high-voltage measurement modules allows safe A/D- and temperature measurement at HV components in electric and hybrid vehicles. Thanks to the reinforced insulation up to 800 V and the multi-level safety concept, tested and approved by an accredited test lab according to EN 61010 safety standard, these modules guarantee safe measurement under harsh environmental conditions. At the Automotive Testing Expo North America, CSM Products, Inc. presents two device types: MiniModules for mobile measuring and 19'' slide-in modules for test bench applications.
CSM Products, Inc. presents robust, compact and highly accurate CAN MiniModules for distributed measurements on driving test ranges, road tests and in test benches. The MiniModules provide efficient measurement of temperature (thermo, RTD), voltage (pressure, acceleration etc.), mechanical strain (strain gauges etc.) and RPM (PWM, event counting etc.). Thanks to the high protection class IP67 and the operating temperature range from -40°C to +125°C the MiniModules can be mounted directly in engine compartments. This reduces noise to an absolute minimum.
CSM’s EtherCAT® MiniModules combine the advantages of Ethernet technology and the EtherCAT® protocol to be used in the fields of automotive testing. The modules are ideal for distributed synchronized measurement with high data rates and many channels. The MiniModules offer high-speed measurement with data rates up to 800 kHz per channel and module synchronization better 1 µs.
To integrate high-speed measurement needs into a complex measurement system containing numerous conventional CAN-based devices, CSM's XCP-Gateway plays a decisive role. It merges the data of CSM EtherCAT® MiniModules with data of CSM CAN-devices into XCP on Ethernet frames, synchronizes and aligns the sampling points and provides all data according to the XCP on Ethernet standard.

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:
Sampling rates up to 800 kSa/s
Premiere of CSM’s ECAT ADMM 4 HighSpeed measurement module at the Automotive Testing Expo Europe
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.
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).
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.
