Fast and synchronous measurements

XCP-Gateway

XCP-Gateway is the interface between the data acquisition software (e. g. vMeasure CSM, CANape®, INCA®, Vision® ...) and the EtherCAT® measurement modules from CSM. It includes an EtherCAT® master and an XCP-on-Ethernet slave.

From a software perspective, the XCP-Gateway serves as an XCP controller with numerous measured quantities. The measurement configurations of the connected measurement modules are written to a single A2L file.

CSM developed the XCP-Gateway for the ECAT MiniModule series and for measurement applications with many measurement channels and high measurement data rates. What's more, the XCP-Gateway features two CAN interfaces, thus providing a basis for combined measurement setups with CAN- and EtherCAT®-based measurement modules from CSM.

Key features

  • Converter for EtherCAT® to standard protocol XCP-on-Ethernet; combining the advantages of data acquisition via EtherCAT® with the flexibility of the wide-spread standard XCP-on-Ethernet.
    • EtherCAT®: time synchronization of all measurement signals better than 1 μs
    • XCP-on-Ethernet: accuracy of measurement signal time stamps is 1 μs
  • Suitable for the connection of up to 25 ECAT measurement modules with measurement data rates higher 2 kHz and up to 800 kHz per channel, or up to 100 ECAT measurement modules with data rates up to 2 kHz per channel
  • Real-time master for EtherCAT® devices of the CSM MiniModule series
  • Two CAN interfaces (with data transfer rates of 500 kbit/s) for the connection of CSM CAN measurement modules
  • Numerous XCP-Gateways can be operated over one Ethernet switch.

Measurement of analog voltage from sensors

Regardless of whether it involves measurements of oil circuit pressure, the flow rate in the cooling circuit or a vehicle's ground clearance, many sensors convert their respective measured quantity into an analog voltage which can be processed in one of CSM's analog measurement modules.
