New features in catman 4.1

Optical Strain Measurement

  • Display of wavelength
  • Conversion to strain and physical value through computation channel
  • Temperature compensation
  • Spectrum display
  • Peak locking
  • Bessel and Butterworth Low pass filters
  • Supported for HBM FiberSensing Interrogators type FS22SI and FS22DI

Lab Testing and Vehicle Testing

  • Human Body vibration filters according to EN ISO 8041
  • Color-coded channels in y(t) overview graphs: Display color coded data on measurement curves, e.g speed as color coded data on a curve for axial acceleration.
  • Shunt calibration to adapt your sensor input characteristics (QuantumX only)
  • Additional filters in analysis mode: (low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, band-stop filters with Bessel, Butterworth, Chebyshev and Elliptic characteristic)

General Functions

  • New Flex table visualization object to display live data, text, calculations, buttons, etc. in cells
  • Cursor synchronization in analysis mode: numerical displays, meters, bars, FFTs and tables can be synchronized with a cursor graph.

Connect, Measure, Visualize, and Analyze with Ease

  • Instant and automatic sensor identification via TEDS and sensor database
  • Ease of use: press "START" and get your results
  • Many visualization tools for your reports
  • Purpose-built support of HBM measuring amplifiers
  • Easy integration with video files
  • Many built-in mathematical and analysis functions
  • Scripts and auto sequences for automated analysis and test execition
  • Fast export into commonly used data formats for post-processing and analysis

Choose the right catman edition for your needs

catman is available in four editions:

  • catman Easy is the original acquisition, visualization and analysis software.
  • catman AP adds powerful modules to full catman Easy functionality.
  • catman PostProcess offers additional post-processing licenses.
  • catman Enterprise is a high-performance solution for applications with high channel counts, such as in structural testing. For catman Enterprise, click here.
