Analog Backplane AP2a from bmcm for 5B Modules with Extended Functionality

ap2aPRLog (Press Release) - Jul. 30, 2013 - MAISACH (NEAR MUNICH), Germany -- Speaking of the so-called "measurement chain", a backplane represents the connecting element between measuring signal, signal conditioning, and data acquisition. It allows for easy connection of sensors and measuring amplifiers, and provides an optimally adjusted signal for the PC data acquisition system.

The backplanes of the AP series by longtime measurement manufacturer BMC Messsysteme GmbH (bmcm) are designed in 5B technology. This high-end industrial standard is ideal for professional applications. Due to the variety of available 5B modules, even the most specific measurement tasks can be realized individually and directly.

What makes the AP series so unique: The question of power supply has already been solved in the backplanes: A wide-range power supply for 5V or 9-40V is integrated. The power supply is simply attached at a 2-pin screw-type terminal.

The revised 2-channel version AP2a provides two slots for 5B measuring converters and other function modules. It features the full functional range of 5B technology, such as galvanic isolation of the channels to each other and to the DAQ and control system. Thus the whole system is optimally protected against high potentials and interferences.

In addition, using output modules for analog control is now possible with the AP2a. Analog outputs of the PC data acquisition system can be converted into electrically isolated current signals, for example, to be used for the control of machines.

Installing the modules is so easy (plug-in - screw tightly - ready) that a replacement is quickly done and the system can be adapted to a new measurement task at any time.

The connection of sensors or any other voltage or current signals has been made user-friendly: The signals are attached at two 7-pin pluggable terminal blocks with spring clamps included with the delivery.
Since not being fixed by screws but just by the spring-clamps of the terminal block, a sensor can easily be exchanged.
The connection of the measuring signal can be prepared separately e.g. in the laboratory. At the measuring point, the terminal block with the attached sensor only has to be plugged in the corresponding input connector of the AP2a.
Sensor supply is provided by the relevant 5B module.

Last but not least: The connection to the PC data acquisition system is realized by a 3-pin screw-type terminal connector.

BMC Messsysteme GmbH (bmcm) offers various universal 5B amplifiers and function modules to equip the AP2a.

An extended version AP8a featuring 8 channels is available for all needing more channels.

Ideal for fixed installations at test stands in tight space and still being highly flexible: Due to the extremely easy change of 5B modules and sensors on the AP2a, different measurement applications can be realized fast and noise-free measuring results are guaranteed.

CircuitMaster 4000 m introduces Saelig active precision oscilloscope

CircuitMaster 4000 M active precision oscilloscope combines the power of a 100 MHz 10-bit DSO and a digital Voltmeter to 0.1%, with exclusive testing techniques to provide the multiple diagnostic capabilities in a single unit.  Designed to simplify the secure research of fine pitch PCB, CircuitMaster 4000 M is unlike any other oscilloscope (usually 8-bit devices), providing innovative test and measurement functions for the detailed analysis of the circuit.  With two analog input channels, as well as an external trigger, the CircuitMaster 4000 M also offers four digital inputs adjustable threshold for logic signals, making it useful for mixed signal applications. For multiple signal acquisition, a 40-channel connector is provided for use with IC or PCB connectors. This accessory can be used as double-channel 20 for comparison and signal acquisition in real time.

While the CircuitMaster 4000 M can operate as a conventional oscilloscope with standard features and measurements, its built-in accurate Voltmeter (0.1% 24-bit) provides an accurate reading of the voltage probed to display simultaneously the signal waveform.  Pedal makes sampling probe measurements easier and safer as well.

Other display options can provide useful signal analysis capabilities.

The unique CircuitMaster 4000 m Active Mode offers DC or AC signal outputs on the same channel used to measure an input signal.  This measures the active response from a test to a stimulus, detect circuit conditions not visible with conventional instruments. Alternatively, this mode can be used as a function generator to inject signals to a Board, with the second channel to be used to monitor the response in a different point in the circuit, checking the phase delay, for example.

Can be a challenge finding a short-circuit or an open circuit in a PCB powered-both return a 0V voltage with a voltmeter or oscilloscope. But with CircuitMaster 4000 m mode active, injecting a small DC signal to the circuit and measure the response gives the user a clear indication of the fault condition. With an open circuit (no current) voltage output of CircuitMaster 4000 M remains unchanged, but with a short circuit, the voltage will drop almost completely.  An additional capacity-the FirmFlex mode -provides the most useful information-it can assess the strength of a node, i.e. their ability to sink or source of current in a circuit properly.

The CircuitMaster 4000 m can quickly and easily perform analog signature analysis (or VI tests), a technique for investigating voltage-current characteristics of energized devices node. The resulting curve can indicate resistive, capacitive, inductive and semiconductor characteristics to detect flaws in a leaky diode components, for example, or to compare known good devices and suspicious. For additional fault detection capabilities, the CircuitMaster 4000 m scan mode can perform automatic tracking of the curve, showing the amplitude and phase for several variations of voltage and frequency.

The TestFlow Manager software provided allows users to create automated test sequences in a simple structure, step by step, personalized with photos, diagrams, instructions, PDF datasheets or Web material. A graphics option can also be used to guide the test procedures, allowing users to enter comments that will appear in a final report. The resources to save and share test data and procedures make CircuitMaster 4000 M useful for various seasons or geographic locations.

Made by ABI Electronics Ltd., a leading manufacturer of test equipment embedded, European CircuitMaster 4000 M is now available from Saelig Company, Inc. Fairport, NY.  For detailed specifications, free technical assistance or additional information, contact 1-888-Saelig 7SAELIG

GM’s new Chevrolet Spark

The last time we heard of anything stirring up the US electric car market was the second generation of Nissan LEAF which, with a huge price drop, extended range and upgraded warranty, appeared much more promising. And as it promised, Nissan has managed to significantly improve its US electric car sales numbers. The new LEAF, out in March this year, has consistently beaten its arch rival Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid in sales numbers. The vehicle, which reported modest sales of 400-500 units a month last year, has almost quadrupled sales year-over-year, so much so that the automaker’s US arm is struggling to meet demand.

Can GM, which has finally brought a more appropriate rival (in terms of fair comparison) to LEAF in the market, further charge it up?

The all-new Chevrolet Spark all-electric car has gone on sale in the US, though initially only in California and Oregon (GM plans to gradually expand sales to pan-US over the next year). The vehicle has been launched at a price of under USD20,000 after factoring in the US federal tax credit of USD7,500. That is almost at par with the base model of LEAF after credit, and is way below the price of other electric car rivals including Ford Focus electric, Honda Fit EV, Fiat 500e, and the other more comparably-sized Mitsubishi i-MiEV hatch.

GM seems to have got the price right, but that’s not all that matters. What about range? That’s another area where GM may have done its due, having awarded over 80 miles of real world range to the 3,500 pound car. That is made possible with a 21kWh battery pack containing over 330 cells and an 85kW electric motor, combining to deliver 400lb-ft of torque. Top speed of the car stands at 90mph and zero to 60mph takes about 7 seconds. Several car reviews describe the vehicle to be agile and fun to drive, handling smoothly and quite comfortable in front and rear despite the small frame.

The vehicle can be charged using a 120V charger which is included with the car; a 240 volt charger kit is optional. Spark EV is also claimed to be the first vehicle featuring the SAE J1772 combo connector which allows for fast DC charging of the battery (up to 80% capacity) in less than 20 minutes.

At an effective price under USD20,000 and the small power-packed EV, GM may have done a good job with Spark EV but skepticism on the vehicle being just a compliance car remains.  And that will continue to be there until we see how well (or not) users embrace this newest electric car on the block. In a recent interview with Auto News, Cristi Landy, marketing director for Chevrolet’s small and electrified vehicles recognizes the challenge when she says, “The difficult thing is that it’s a small, slow-growing market that a lot of players are moving into”. GM executives are visibly wary of showing too much enthusiasm on the vehicle’s prospects and have clearly stated that the initial production of the vehicle in South Korea will remain modest (the vehicle will also go on sale in Korea and Europe later this year).
