Perception Version 8.20

CAN Recording in Genesis HighSpeed Mainframes

All tethered Genesis HighSpeed mainframes now can be equipped with an internal CAN interface. It offers

  • CAN recording
  • CAN acquisition control

  • CAN result transfer

This interface features:

  • 4 port x 256 channels for “CAN recording” (1000 channels total) with a fixed sample rate of 100 S/s each.
  • 1 port can be configured as “CAN result out” with blocks of up to 240 results and 1000 blocks/s.
  • 1 port offers “CAN remote control” to easily control your Genesis HighSpeed system via the CAN bus.

Improved eAxle Support

  • With the new firmware part of Perception 8.20, all power analyzer input cards GN310B / GN311B and the high voltage input cards GN610B / GN611B will now get upgraded with now 4 counter / timer channels (instead of 2 so far).
  • This enables you to address your eAxle applications in a much more efficient way:
    • The measurement of 3 phases and 2 torque transducers can now be done with a single input board!
  • The Perception ePower Suite supports you setting up your eAxle test out of the box with all extra, required formulas.
  • Different eAxle configurations come predefined in the Perception ePower Suite, while all these configurations can be customized as you like.

Sensor Database now free!

The sensor database lists all available HBM sensors and User sensors (optional). You can browse and access all sensors within the Perception Sensor Database.
Going forward, the Sensor database no longer requires a license.

Usability Improvements All Over:

With the customer feedback we got, different usability improvements have been implemented in order to optimize the workflow:

  • Improved active marking concept
  • Improved Sheet tabs layout
  • Zoom style
  • Display invert
  • Annotation area width
  • AutoSize columns
  • AutoScale x-axis (in live displays)
  • Remove unused items
  • Improved eDrive meter layout
  • New Close/Remove Zoom windows feature
  • Current / Next Experiment naming
  • Improved start / stop timing: twice as fast as before

Various New RT-FDB Formulas

Perceptions offers a wide range of growing real-time formulas. With Perception 8.20, new real-time formulas were added to the formula data base on customer request especially for ePower applications. Thus, the real-time formula database was extended with the following formulas:

  • Upper Envelope
  • Lower Envelope
  • BackEMF
  • Inverse dq0 transformation
  • Space vector to dq0 transformation
  • Dq0 to space vector transformation
