With µCros SL, Ipetronik (Germany) introduced a data-logger developed for fleet testing. The device is equipped with four Classical CAN measurement inputs and provides Wake-on-CAN function.
The IP40-rated data-logger comes in a gold-anodized plastic and aluminum housing and can be used to monitor specific networks and ECUs. The size of 165 mm x 45 mm x 105 mm with a volume of 780 cm3 is ensured by a 32-pin multiplug. Due to this casing design, the logger can be mounted into the vehicle without impeding the driver. It has a SSD storage capacity of up to 500 GiB and is equipped with an integrated dual WLAN module that automatically switches between 2,4-GHz and 5-GHz transfer frequency band (depending on access point requirement).
The 3,75 UMTS/HSPA modem ensures worldwide coverage and reaches maximum upload data rates so that the measurement data can be transferred to the Ipecloud for further analysis. In addition to the four Classical CAN inputs, two analog inputs for up to 40 V and three digital I/Os are available, obviating the need for additional analog modules in order to monitor further voltages (e.g. the state of charge of the battery) with the logger.
For the vehicle positioning, the device is equipped with a 5 Hz GPS sensor supporting the satellite systems Beidou, Glonass, and GPS. The integrated multifunction antenna is connected to the product with four SNA connectors and combines GPS, WiFi, and modem.
