Modular, multi-channel telemetry system
In order to perform measurements on rotating or moving components, information must be transmitted telemetrically. With the new digital Dx telemetry, universal transmitter units are available for different channel counts and sensor assignments. Each unit can handle acquisition and transmission of up to six sensor signals – e.g., two full-bridge or four half-bridge strain gauges, or voltage and temperature signals. A particularly innovative feature is the synchronous operation of multiple transmitter units via a central receiver unit. This permits even the most challenging measurements to be made on machinery and vehicles.

VDL tests instrumented city buses on the streets of Berlin
Berlin’s public transport system is very popular among tourists and inhabitants. With such a high frequency of passengers, it is important that the vehicles are put through their paces and tested in real operating conditions. For the fleet to live up to a high standard, new vehicles must undergo extensive road testing – as with the new buses ordered by the BVG from the Dutch manufacturer VDL. When it comes to equipping their buses with test and measurement systems for road testing, VDL relies on imc. Mobile data acquisition on the VDL city buses is performed using the imc BUSDAQ-2-ET as well as imc CANSAS-INC and -SCI systems.
