The controller module MCM-Main Control provides the interface between the PC and the MCM system. In a system of this module takes over the management and configuration of the individual MCM-IO modules. The module has an Ethernet interface and a CAN interface.
The MCM-Main Control module is ideally suited as a communication interface for MCM systems.
PC connection via standard Ethernet LXI about Messtechnikbus
Streaming function for smooth online data transfer to PC
Bandwidth optimization by setting the sampling rate of each channel MCM modules
Master clock generator for synchronization of all I/O channels
External Trigger Gateway with wired-OR bus for all I/O channels
Configuration master with auto-identification of the I/O modules
Integrated measurement memory
In cooperation with SMART TESTSOLUTIONS, ZF Friedrichshafen AG has developed a new generation of test stands that is characterised by exceptional flexibility and is easy to configure thanks to a lean script language and special drivers. In developing the system, the partners were able to draw on the existing range of optimised system modules for measured value acquisition, load and sensor simulation, which had a positive impact on costs.
