Measuring module for precise current measurement from 50 nA to 50 A
The imc CANSAS-IHR measuring module allows the highly precise and interruption-free measurement of the current characteristics from 50 nA to 50 A. Responsible for the high range dynamics are two different measuring shunts, which are dynamically switched according to the strength of the current using an auto-ranging method.
With the imc CANSAS-IHR, a tool is now available to developers for the first time that enables a highly precise and complete measurement of the current characteristics - for example for the examination of quiescent and operating currents in electrical components and systems.
At a glance
- Two autonomous, isolated channels for current measurement with automatic range switching
- Wide measuring range up to 50 A
- High resolution of 50 nA and 30-bit range dynamics (resultant)
- Internal A/D converter digitalises at 30 kSample/s
- Directly calculated output variables: minimum, maximum & mean value
- Output over CAN-bus with selectable data rates from 1 Hz to 1000 Hz
All properties of the measuring module, such as baud rate and the desired CAN messages, can be set using the imc CANSAS software included.
Once a configuration has been created it can be permanently saved in the module so that the measurement begins directly after starting.
