Subsidiary companies offer high synergy potential
CAETEC has belonged to IPETRONIK since May 2016 and complements the offering of loggers and measurement modules. CAETEC is a development company that specialises in automotive measurement technology, whose core products are modular test devices for vehicle applications such as fleet monitoring, bus, traffic and video analysis in addition to the validation of driver assistance systems. The company's data logger systems feature versatile and multi-channel bus inputs such as CAN, LIN, Most, USB Ethernet, FlexRay, Automotive Ethernet, video and driver display systems, and also such products as ARCOS 1.5, µCROS XL, µCROS in addition to space and power-saving analogue and ComboBox variants.
The SAVVY® Telematic Systems AG is a machine-to-machine (M2M) technology provider specialising in telematics-based business intelligence and fleet management. Thanks to Savvy's expertise in telematics and IPETRONIK's wealth of experience in mobile measurement data logging, smart data loggers and cloud solutions with ERP connection are available for monitoring the condition of goods and for global GPS tracking. Business intelligence allows the efficient operation of resources such as containers, construction machinery, trains, vehicle fleets and transport logistics to be monitored worldwide online.
Efficient fleet management
The new high-performance data logger IPlog2 is designed around the basic concept and enclosure of the IPElog, but has been further advanced in many details. This includes for example the audio input, which allows the test driver to record verbal comments and noises events driven for subsequent measurement data analysis, the extension from 14 to 18 bus and measurement inputs as well as the USB 3.0 port for faster configuration updates and data downloads.
Put together, the data loggers IPElog2 and/or M-LOG V3 produce the communication module COMgate V3 for wireless data transmission as per 4G and/or LTE standards and the web portal IPEcloud, an efficient system for smart fleet management.
Acoustic measurements and analyses with IPEmotion 2016 and Mx-SENS2 4 module
IPEmotion 2016 facilitates the analysis of acoustic signals and vibrations with the Campbell diagram. The four-channel measurement module Mx-SENS2 4 serves as a corresponding hardware platform, which, thanks to its channel sampling rate of up to 100 kHz, makes it ideally suited for capturing dynamic measurement signals, for example from ICP-fed microphones and acceleration sensors. Analogue measured variables, sound measurements and component vibrations can be recorded in IPEmotion synchronously with digital measured variables from the vehicle ECUs via CAN bus, FlexRay and LIN bus networks. At Automotive Testing Expo, a new type of artificial head with excellent directionality is to be presented. With the overall system comprising the software, measurement module and artificial head, it is possible to conduct climate acoustics tests in automotive development highly efficiently.
ETAS integration: IPEaddon INCA 5 – hardware integration in INCA 7.1 and 7.2
INCA from ETAS is a widely used software platform for calibrating ECUs with the focus on powertrain development. Using the new IPETRONIK driver IPEaddon INCA 5, it is possible to integrate measurement modules on the basis of CAN bus and XCPonETH protocols via the BOA and OHI interface from INCA and to configure them with ETAS software. This allows for example analogue measurement data to be recorded via the ETK interface with chronological synchronism to the measurement data from the ECU. Users benefit here from the X-LINK technology, since they can operate the X-devices on an Ethernet basis in conjunction with CAN measurement modules in a system chain.
Compact testing and loading unit for air-conditioning compressors
With IPEload, the IPEtec business division of IPETRONIK is presenting a compact testing and loading unit with active cooling for the efficient testing of the refrigerant compressors used in vehicle air conditioning units. The system is portable and does not require a cold water supply. The test bench will be shown in action via IPEmotion and PLC control terminal at the exhibition in conjunction with an electric compressor and full-scale test bench control unit. Using the calibrated microphones, acceleration and pressure sensors, it is possible to depict acoustic effects in relation to the compressor speed and load state in a highly effective manner.
