The digital bus systems are particularly relevant in vehicle testing to integrate vehicle information into a measurement. For example, data from the ECU can easily be incorporated into a measurement. All imc systems can be equipped with control device protocols, thus allowing, for example, XCP, CCP, KWP2000, OBD-2, etc., to be directly interpreted.
The same principle is also used in the test bench area. Status information coming from the test object's ECUs is integrated into the current measurement or additional devices of the test stand infrastructure (for example, climate control devices, actuators, etc.).
The modular measurement systems of the imc CRONOS family are ideal for mixed-signal applications in which a wide range of analog and digital signals are to be logged together with fieldbus data. If only fieldbus data is to be logged, then the affordable imc BUSDAQ multibus datalogger is suitable, which supports many other bus systems and protocols in addition to CAN. To digitize analog signals near the sensor and transfer signals via the fieldbus, then the the imc CANSAS measurement modules are available.
