Modular Data Logger with twelve CAN Channels for Automotive Testing

IPTRONIC M LOGv315 April 2015 – With the M-LOG V3 IPETRONIK offers the third generation of its proven data loggers with particularly high measurement requirements in the mobile data acquisition. The new version is characterized by maximum power resources for online-offsetting and data storage during stationary and mobile tests. It is based on the newest generation of the Intel Atom E620T processor and with 1024 Megabyte main memory (RAM) it provides a significant increase in performance, notably in complex applications when detailed configurations are used.

With CFast the M-LOG V3 obtains a new removable storage medium with up to 64 Gigabyte data volume and a SATA port for fast access to the saved data. Another highlight of the configurable and upgradeable hardware design is the integrated speed option, which reduces the CPU load on the CAN card by preprocessing the measurement signals.

The M-LOG V3 uses the real-time operating system RTOS-32 with the reliable software TESTdrive. Further characteristics are the twelve ISO-11898-2 compliant CAN channels two Fast Ethernet (100 Base-TX) measurement inputs, two USB 2.0 ports, four digital in- and four digital outputs as well as an intelligent power management that supports WakeOnCAN and NoMeassageLost function on all CAN-inputs. The transfer of online measurement data to IPEmotion, ETAS INCA, Vector CANape and many other tools is carried out over CAN or XCPonETH. All adjustments in the measurement configuration can be made conveniently via the Windows software IPEmotion. Optional, the protocols XCPonEthernet, KWPonCAN, CCP 2.0, XCPonCAN, UDS, J1939 and OBD2 are available. For wireless data transmission IPETRONIK offers the COMgate as an extension module.

The data logger has a high quality and golden anodized aluminum housing with compact dimensions [158mm x 69mm x 102mm (W x H x D)]. It is manufactured in accordance to the protection standard IP54 and weighs only 850 gram. The M-Log V3 operates in the temperature range of -40 °C up to +85 °C at a relative humidity of 5 to 95%. Voltage of 9 VDC to 36 VDC is required for the power supply. A low power consumption of typically 9,0 W as well as no rotating parts like cooling fans or hard disks make the logger even more suitable for the automotive use. All measuring inputs, power supply and the housing are completely galvanically isolated from each other. All connections are 100% compatible with the existing infrastructure by maintaining the standard plug connections. This allows an one-to-one change of the central hardware components without any time-consuming rewiring or costly reconstruction.

Harry Störzer, Head of Application & Support at IPETRONIK comments: „With the M-LOG V3 we enhance our successful M-LOG family by adding an even more efficient data logger. Because of the newest generation AtomT processor, the data logger operates with higher performance and therefore with more reserves for data acquisition compared to current systems. With new functions and significant increase in performance, IPETRONIK’s M-LOG V3 is the ideal solution for automobile development departments, which need to measure multiple CAN buses with lots of measuring signals and/or high data rates.“
