CAN bus module from HBM features four independent CAN bus interfaces and
integrates seamlessly into the QuantumX universal measurement system. This
enables CAN messages to be synchronously acquired and stored for all analog or
digitally measured quantities such as torque, force, strain, displacement,
pressure, rotational speed and temperature.
CAN bus usually forms the core network in vehicle electronics with control
units in the drive train, the driving dynamics and in the body electronics all
connected to provide best-possible vehicle behavior.
The MX471 is
designed to complement the QuantumX to provide the user with a flexible and
simple to operate system that is backed by comprehensive software support.
The MX471 module supports both the writing and acquisition of CAN messages.
This allows quantities directly acquired by a QuantumX amplifier to be sent as
individual CAN messages adding a powerful gateway functionality to the
The CAN bus module supports high-speed CAN and is connected to a PC or a data
logger via Ethernet TCP/IP or FireWire. Configuration is easy and, for example,
uses description files in DBC format. CAN messages can be used as a trigger for
measurement recordings while the status of any network nodes can be logged and
are shown directly at the device.
Any application involving extensive use of the CAN bus, such as vehicle testing
or on automotive industry test benches, or in automation will benefit from the
use of the MX471
CAN bus module.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
