2014-01-27 12:11:47 - Breakdown monitoring, early fault detection, and quality improvement provide more safety. Measurement manufacturer bmcm faces the manifold demands in these fields by presenting reliable and universal LAN measurement technology.
Safety has been a desirable state for people at all times, because it eliminates risks and dangers, which might interfere with their well-being and progress. Not a day goes by without this subject being part of the news.
Also in measurement, the "safety" issue is an important field of application as the following examples will demonstrate:
With long-term measurement at structures, such as bridges, buildings, or railway tracks, changes and damages can be detected early. A catastrophe may possibly be prevented.
Permanent monitoring of machines and facilities helps to avoid breakdowns, quality defects due to faulty production, and costly production stops.
Last but not least, the acquisition of vehicle data plays an important role in automotive engineering to improve car safety.
All cases require a
measurement system which is able to record different measuring quantities (e.g. temperature, vibration, angle) at many test points even under rough conditions (interferences, field or mobile use) or for a long period of time.
In addition, access to measured data must be possible at any time without having to stop or interrupt sampling to guarantee continuous recording.
Measurement specialist BMC Messsysteme GmbH (bmcm) comfortably solves measurement tasks of this kind via network.
The compact 16-channel LAN data acquisition systems (e.g. LAN-AD16f, AMS42-LAN16f) are placed close to the measuring point.
They sample different measuring signals with up to 250kHz within the defined range (+/-1V, +/-2V, +/-5V, +/-10V) set for each channel separately.
The measuring data of any number of devices are synchronized. Noise-free and in real-time they are sent via one network cable or WLAN to the connected PC/laptop showing the signals in the measuring software NextView. Safe data transmission is guaranteed by TCP/IP protocol.
With the easy-to-use application software for data acquisition and analysis, measurements can be configured and realized in short time.
Long-term measurements are periodically and gapless stored in succeeding files allowing access to the entire measurement for analysis purposes at any time.
Using a trigger with prehistory is recommended for monitoring machines and facilities. In this case, data are only recorded if the measured values are beyond a defined normal range.
The measuring data of the prehistory often provide useful information for error diagnostics.
If required, actions, like turning of a machine, can optionally be set off in case of alarm.
