High flexibility based on a wide variety of hardware interfaces
Whoever acquires measurement data from a variety of sources needs a reliable system that records data in a synchronized manner. The Vector solutions give you access to the following:
Variables, parameters, characteristic curves, and maps in the ECU
Bus information from CAN, LIN, FlexRay, and Ethernet/BroadR-Reach,
Analog and digital signals from different external measurement systems
Video and audio data
GPS information that originates from the CAN bus or a dedicated GPS receiver
Your Support for Measurements
The following tools facilitate the time-synchronized real-time acquisition and visualization of ECU-internal signals with CCP/XCP, KWP2000, and UDS, signals from CAN, LIN, FlexRay, Ethernet and MOST buses, as well as external measurement technology:
CANape – The all-round tool for measurement and calibration of ECUs
VX1000 – Scalable measurement and calibration hardware for maximum data transmission rates
VX0312 – Network Interface for Ethernet/BroadR-Reach and CAN
CANape displays the measurement results during the recording in various windows as needed. This enables a fast initial online analysis. All data always receive a time stamp and are stored in a time-synchronized manner. This helps you to evaluate the information offline later on.
vMeasure exp is a flexible measurement software solution that provides you with efficient support in the laboratory, at the test stand, during test drives and endurance tests. With vMeasure exp, you can conveniently record physical values, internal ECU signals as well as signals sent via the vehicle bus.
The vMeasure CSM measurement and analysis software is the ideal supplement to CAN- and EtherCAT-based measurement modules of CSM. With vMeasure CSM you have a convenient tool for configuring your measurement, synchronously acquiring physical values, and storing these values in MDF format. Recording of GPS and video data is also supported.
vMDM is the solution for efficient management of large data volumes from development, test bench operation and vehicle tests. With vMDM, you can save your measurement data securely, protect it against unauthorized access and simplify the exchange of measurement data between distributed teams. Large-scale CPU-intensive analyses, classifications and reports are performed centrally on a server without any computational requirements on the engineer’s workstation.
The VX1000 system is a scalable solution with maximum performance for your measurement and calibration tasks. It forms the interface between the ECU and a measurement and calibration tool such as CANape. For high data throughput with minimum runtime effects on the ECU, access is by means of microcontroller-specific data trace and debug interfaces.
The VX0312 is a compact Ethernet/BroadR-Reach and CAN interface with USB interface to the PC. This interface can be used to connect XCP on Ethernet or BroadR-Reach devices to a PC with measurement and calibration software – quickly and reliably.
The following measurement systems can be integrated in CANape:
CANape supports various data acquisition devices of many different manufacturers. “Digital Analog IO” is an open interface for connection of almost any input and output systems.
All measurement data acquisition devices that are connected to the PC via the CAN bus, like devices from Caetec, CSM, IMC, and Ipetronik
AD-Scan MiniModul pro from CSM (2 Mbit/s bandwidth with overclocked CAN bus for up to 10 kHz sampling rate)
EtherCAT to XCP on Ethernet Gateway from CSM
ETAS measurement module series: ES400 and ES600
Mx-SENS 8 via XCP on Ethernet from Ipetronik
Analog and digital measurement cards from NI (DAQmx series)
Via the DAIO interface:
DEWE-xxx and DEWE2 from DEWETRON
QuantumX and SoMat eDAQ from HBM
ADwin systems from Jäger Computergesteuerte Messtechnik
faceLAB from Seeing Machines (video systems for eye-tracking in the area of driving safety research and human-machine interaction)
Dikablis from Ergoneers (video systems for eye-tracking in the area of driving safety research and human-machine interaction)
DAIO (Digital/Analog I/O) is an open interface for connection of almost any input and output systems. An open C-interface with development kit and detailed documentation is available to you free of charge for development of your own drivers.
