AD4 ECAT MM Series

Easy measurement of fast analog signals

AD4 pro Type IG100 | IG1000, AD4 Type IG100 | IG1000 and AD4 Type OG10 | OG100 | OG1000

Designed for the acquisition of fast analog signals in distributed measurements applied in the fields of automotive measurement technology.

Easy measurement of fast analog signals

This module series provides high-precision bipolar sensor excitation, adjustable per channel from ±5 to ±15 V DC and suitable for a wide range of sensors. In conjunction with the flexibly adjustable measuring ranges, the various modules cover a wide range of applications.

Distributed high-speed measurement with the AD4 OG

Type AD4 pro: measurement range from ±10 mV to ±20 V

  • The MiniModule AD4 pro IG100 is ideal for the acquisition of very low sensor voltages with a data rate of up to 100 kHz per channel.
  • The MiniModule AD4 pro IG1000 allows measurements with a data rate of up to 1 MHz per channel.

Type IG: measurement range from ±1 V to ±20 V

  • The MiniModule AD4 IG100 allows the acquisition of signals with measurement data rates up to 100 kHz per Channel.
  • The MiniModule AD4 IG1000 is designed for precise measurement applications with data rates up to 1 MHz.

Type OG: measurement range from ±5 V to ±90 V

  • MiniModule AD4 OG10 is perfectly suited for multichannel applications up to 10 kHz per channel.
  • MiniModule AD4 OG100 allows the acquisition of signals with measurement data rates up to 100 kHz per channel.
  • MiniModule AD4 OG1000 for precise analysis of high-frequency signals with measurement data rates up to 1 MHz per channel.

These modules are operated via CSM’s Ethernet/EtherCAT® protocol converter XCP-Gateway in combination with XCP-compatible data acquisition software. Alternatively, the modules (EtherCAT® slaves) can be run by using a standard EtherCAT® master with measurement data rates up to 10 kHz.


  • 4 differential voltage inputs, galvanically isolated
  • Measurement data rate up to 1 MHz per channel
  • High-precision bipolar sensor excitation, adjustable per channel
  • Precise module and channel synchronization (<1 μs)
  • TEDS functionality according to IEEE 1451.4 (Template 30) supported
  • Operating temperature range: -40 °C to +125 °C

Fast and Synchronous Measurement with EtherCAT®

The EtherCAT® measurement technology from CSM offers the highest measurement performance: e.g. for multi-channel applications with more than 1,000 strain gauges - / acceleration transducers and applications with measurement data rates of up to 1 MHz per channel. Manufacturers of measurement devices have to cope with continually increasing requirements. Thus, measurement devices have to acquire and process increasingly large amounts of data. The proven CAN measurement technology is hereby often pushed to its limits. This is why the EtherCAT® field bus is setting new standards regarding bandwidth, maximum number of channels and synchronicity of measurement signals.
