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.
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
