For the GL3000/GL4000 family the WiFi board is used for the wireless transfer of logging data files from vehicles that are parked at stationary locations. Additionally you can update the configuration and firmware of the logger via WiFi. For the data transfer the ML Server software must be installed on the PC.


Highlights:

  • Particularly suitable for use in test fleets due to automatic data transfer
  • Transfer of selected logged data is configurable
  • Connection to several serves in different locations possible

Measurement Technology

The loggers of the GL3000/GL4000/GL5000 family are already equipped with 6 analog inputs. With the Analog Board you can expand the loggers to add 8 additional analog inputs. 

 

Highlights:

  • 8 differential, unipolar analog inputs
  • Voltage range 0 V ... 18 V
  • Resolution 12 Bit
  • Precision 0,2 %
  • Sampling rate 1 kHz for each channel
Afficher plus

With the loggers of the GL3000/GL4000/GL5000 family and the VX measurement hardware, you can record internal ECU signals (variables, parameters) in parallel with bus communication. The ECU signals are measured using a POD (plug-on device). The connection of the logger to the VX module is by means of Ethernet and uses the XCP on Ethernet protocol.

 

Highlights:

  • XCP on Ethernet for higher data rates than XCP on the vehicle bus
  • Data transmission via DAQ mode
  • Support of ECUs with serial PODs

The measurement modules of our partner CSM extend the built-in measurement channels of the GL Loggers. You can use them to additionally measure temperatures, larger voltage ranges, pressure, etc. Depending on the measuring task, different measurement modules are available.

Values are simply acquired via CAN measurement modules. Measurements with higher bandwidth can be performed with EtherCAT® measurement modules. For the measurement of high-voltage components, special HV measurement modules are available.

CAN measurement modules:

  • Acquisition of temperature, voltage, pressure, current or acceleration
  • Connection direct at CAN bus
  • Alternatively, connection at CSM XCP-Gateway e.g. together with EtherCAT® modules

EtherCAT® measurement modules:

  • Measuring with higher data throughput, e.g. analog voltages with up to 1 MHz (for measurements >100 kHz GL5000 family is recommended)
  • Connection via CSM XCP-Gateway at the Ethernet interface of the logger

High-Voltage measurement modules:

  • Certified high-voltage insulation test including cabling (reinforced insulation up to 846 V) 
  • Voltages up to 2 kV, currents up to 800 A

Remote Controls

For the GL2000/GL3000/GL4000/GL5000 families you can use the VoCAN to comment on specific events during logging in an audio format. With the GL3000/GL4000/GL5000 family, you can also output voice messages, e.g. as information or instructions for the driver.

Highlights

  • Voice recording via directional microphone in WAV format with date and clock time
  • Voice output from WAV files saved in the logger
  • Output of a signal tone
