How latest generation measurement technology helps the automotive industry to gain market presence faster with new models.
Rapidly reacting to new market requirements with new, but mature models: That is currently the key to success, not only in the automotive industry. To play in the top league of global competition with the rapidly changing outline conditions and markets, you need to stay at the cutting edge with your developments. Just a few years ago, large off-road SUVs were in demand, now the market demands efficient climate protection in its vehicles - and what about tomorrow?
The development of new vehicles has to be fast enough today to meet rapidly changing requirements and, at the same time, the increasing demands regarding vehicle quality. To master this balancing act, the entire development process must be monitored on the test bench. This also applies to the test cycles during development, which must continue to deliver accurate results under ever-decreasing implementation times.
Modern measurement technology helps to meet the growing requirements in inspections and tests, and is even capable of significantly accelerating the entire test process - by up to factor of 20 in some cases. The measuring amplifier system QuantumX from HBM has specifically been developed specially for more efficiency during tests and inspections. The path to success: QuantumX enables division of time and organization during the preparation and implementation of tests.
Measurement therefore becomes simpler and more effective in future: The preparation time for measurements can be reduced by a factor of 20 with this principle and the automatic settings also increases trust in the accuracy of the total measurement chain.
QuantumX uses the Advanced Plug & Measure technology (APM). This technology combines the automatic transducer recognition via TEDS, the electronic data sheet in the transducer, with the advantages of a modern, universal data acquisition system. Together with APM, this results in a measurement system that ensures significant acceleration of tests and inspections.
