Thanks to constant technological progress, the evolution of modern measuring systems is never-ending. But there are milestones on every path and a good hiker reaches these milestones reliably. And this is also true of Softing Measurement Technology!
The latest editions to the modular meas- urement technology family are a thermocouple measurement amplifier (MT20.2), an Ethernet interface with Gigabit and integrated switch (RGC-ETH.1) and buffer power pack (B12-033.1). Furthermore, 2014 saw the addition of current inputs, IEPE interfaces and various embedded measurement functions to the range. And thanks to state-of-the-art 19“ mechanics, SMT is now also perfect for use in test bench applications, in addition to road and crash tests.
The measuring software PEA provides lots of new functions in the areas of online visualization and digital signal processing. Furthermore, generic interfaces enable a simple link to test planning and measurement data management systems, for example due to the import of sensor and measuring point catalogs or the automatic archiving of measurement data. A CANopen protocol stack rounds out release 2.6.0.
And since you‘re never done climbing peaks, the next stage has already been defined. More coverage for decentral measurement systems, SENT, EtherCAT and 50kSPS/Ch – just a few of the buzzwords users at Softing MessTechnik can look forward to hearing more about in 2015.
