Measurements made under harsh environmental conditions such as extreme hot and cold temperatures, water spray, and intense vibration require appropriately protected measurement equipment. The imc CRONOS-SL has proven that these conditions will not affect its precision, dynamics or flexibility; the system meets MIL STD810F standard for temperature and shock resistance.
With its freely configurable measurement amplifier design, imc CRONOS-SL allows direct connection of any desired signals and sensors, and provides both power and conditioning. This enables ideal system adaptation to a wide variety of measurement tasks. Besides the acquisition of raw data, freely defined processing of channel signals can be performed in real time. All analog or digital channels, as well as computed data streams, are available for use in open- and closed-loop control tasks, or for value limit monitoring. Meanwhile, measurement channels carried on the CAN/LIN-Bus, and encoded in a variety of protocols, can be acquired in synchronization with the others and processed in the same way as the analog measurement channels.
imc CRONOS-SL connects to a PC via an Ethernet TCP/IP interface. If desired, additional and synchronized imc measurement devices can easily be added to the network setup.
