The same applies to testing and control software. Measured quantities from the test field must be saved and analyzed with suitable software. Due to the large data quantities involved, this software is PC-based and is transferred via an Ethernet interface to a measurement computer. In the next step, parts and methods of the evaluating software will then be reused piecemeal in the production environment, in combination with elements of the control technology. In addition, a high degree of real-time behavior is often required for mechatronic systems in production environments to guarantee smooth interaction between all the components without any errors.
HBM offers a wide range of concepts for sensors and measurement acquisition for development and for production itself. In addition to providing suitable sensors, modern measurement electronics makes up the core of the measuring chain for production.
Often existing systems are not able to keep pace with the requirements and data quantities of modern, highly dynamic production lines. Important criteria for successfully using this type of measurement system include data transfer in real time and high memory capacities. Simple parameterization and visualization of measurement data for different groups of employees and operators are also important.
