imc CRONOSflex: input modules

As part of the imc CRONOS family, the new imc CRONOSflex continues the tradition for supporting direct measurements of virtually any sensor available for mechanical, electromechanical, and mechatronic measurements. Multi-channel mixed signals, whether analog inputs, counters and incremental encoder inputs, or fieldbus based signals such as CAN-bus, GM LAN or LIN… you name it: imc CRONOSflex measures it.

Modular measurements
With up to 100kSps per channel, and now supporting up to 2 million samples per second throughput in each base unit, as well as having software configurable high precision signal conditioners and integrated sensor power supplies - the imc CRONOSflex can take on even the toughest data acquisition challenges, while performing at high precision under demanding environmental conditions.

The most striking feature of the imc CRONOSflex system is the imc Click Mechanism - you can add or remove signal-conditioned analog input channels from your imc CRONOSflex system in seconds by simply "clicking" a module on or off the stack. The module's rigid case and automatic recognition by the imc STUDIO software provide the ultimate in flexible modularity. Alternatively, the imc CRONOSflex Modules may be distributed, connected with the base unit or other satellite blocks via standard Ethernet cable.

As with all imc data acquisition system inputs, the imc CRONOSflex Modules integrate signal conditioning, analog filtering, high precision 24-bit digitizers, and digital signal processing. As such, a variety of modules are available from imc—from the general purpose universal 8-channel UNI2-8 module (CRFX/UNI2-8), to more measurement specific modules.

    HRENC-4

    The imc CRONOSflex Module (CRFX/HRENC-4) serves to measure signals whose time- or frequency information is to be captured. In contrast to the case with analog channels, to actual measurement
    does not consist of repeated sampling at a fixed time interval. Instead, digital counters are used to determine either the count of pulses occurring or the time intervals between defined signal slope
    events. For the time measurement/ maximum frequency, a resolution of approx. 3.9 ns (256MHz) is achieved. When using two-track sine/cosine signal encoders, conversion to digital values for determining the rotation direction and the absolute count of increments (full periods) is performed. Additionally, detailed information about the position can be gained by analog evaluation of
    the sine/ cosine signal, which results in yet further increased resolution.

    Highlights

    • The HRENC-4 is both a digital comparator and serves the purposeof analog evaluation (sine / cosine signals).

    zero. The physical dimension combined with the scaling factor has to be entered into the basis card.
    By means of taring in the dialog 'amplifier adjustment' this state of rest is tared as a zero position. Frequencies that are smaller than that state of rest will be notified as negative physical values.
