Fast and synchronous measurements Header Fast and synchronous measurements

AD4 ECAT MM Series

Fast measurement with IEPE sensors

Type IE100 and Type OE100

Designed specifically for use with IEPE sensors. With up to 100 kHz per channel, the high-speed EtherCAT® measurement modules simplify your application.

Fast, synchronous, mobile

The high-speed ECAT measurement modules for IEPE sensors enable the acquisition of analog voltages with data rates of up to 100 kHz.

The AD4 IE100 features a galvanically isolated sensor excitation up to 24 V and a measurement range from ±1 V to ±20 V. This makes that module ideally suited for measurement tasks making use of high-frequency IEPE acceleration sensors and microphones.

AD4 OE100 is provided with a measurement range from ±5 V to ±90 V and an isolated sensor supply with up to 24 V supply voltage.

The modules are operated via the Ethernet/EtherCAT® protocol converter XCP-Gateway in conjunction with XCP-enabled data acquisition software. Measurement data rates > 10 kHz per channel are supported by vMeasure, CANape and in INCA via the add-on CSM INCA AddOn ETH. Alternatively, the modules can be operated by using a standard EtherCAT® master via CANopen over EtherCAT® (CoE) with measurement data rates up to 10 kHz.

Measurement of Analog Voltage from Sensors

Numerous measurement variables in vehicle development and testing can be recorded with sensors that reproduce their respective measured variable as an analog voltage. For example, distance, pressure, flow rates, moisture, vibration and noise can be easily measured.

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.
