Powerful measurement modules for mobile applications

Measurement modules used in the automotive industry must be robust and compact because they are often placed in areas such as the engine compartment where space is limited and temperatures can be high. The new imc CANSASfit series works reliably from -40° to +125° C, has a protection rating of IP65 and, due to their small form factor, can be placed almost anywhere.

The powerful modules for mobile applications enable direct connection of all typical signals such as voltage, current, temperature, rpm, distance and speed. The digitized measurement signals are output as CAN messages and can be read or recorded by any measurement, automation or control system with a CAN interface.

At a glance:

  • Measurement module for voltage/current, temperature, frequency
  • Operates from -40° to +125° C with condensation allowed
  • Robust housing with IP65 rating, MIL STD-810F
  • Click-mechanism connects modules electrically and mechanically into one unit
  • Central or distributed installation
  • Complete galvanic isolation
  • Measurement data output via CAN
  • Incl. configuration software

Click-mechanism for more comfort

The imc CANSASfit series modules can be quickly connected using the click-mechanism: both mechanically and electrically. Blocks can easily be formed by simply clicking individual modules together without the use of wiring or fasteners.

Complement imc CANSAS modules with an imc data logger

imc CANSAS measurement modules are perfectly complemented with an imc data logger - for example with an imc CRONOScompact or imc imc BUSDAQ.These are well-suited for use in, e.g., control device development or ECU testing where real-time acquisition and calculating of vehicle or field bus data is needed.

imc CANSASfit-ENC-6

Module for acquisition of frequency, rotation, position and angle counter signals

The ENC-6 module from the imc CANSASfit series offers 6 differential channels which can each be used for event counting, time measurement or a combination of event counting and time measurement. These operating modes enable capture of incremental counter sensors such as those used for measuring frequencies, RPM-values and velocities. The switching threshold and hysteresis are software configurable for the purpose of detecting events or impulses for incremental measurements.
