Calibration hardware

  • 29-Jun-2010 02:10 EDT

The VX1000 family is a modular measurement and calibration solution from Vector that can be used in the engine compartment, on test benches, and in the laboratory. The system acts as an interface between the ECU and a measurement and calibration tool such as CANape. For data throughput of up to 5 MByte/s, data is accessed using microcontroller-specific data trace or debug interfaces. The VX1000 system connects directly to a PC, and the solution features calibration and bypassing functions with short latency times and flash programming of expired ECUs. Other features include minimum event cycle of less than 15 ms, data acquisition event triggering by a single memory write access, minor modification of ECU codes and minimal influence on execution times, read/write access to ECU internal memory, and 100 Mbit/s ethernet connection to a PC for configuration and software updates.

Christopher Grundler, the Director of OTAQ for the U.S. EPA, answered questions about Phase 2 rule-making for heavy trucks, global harmonization of emissions regulations, and his outlook for a new national NOx standard. Grundler will be the featured speaker on opening day of the SAE 2017 Government/Industry Meeting taking place January 25-27 in Washington D.C.
Making off-highway equipment, such as construction or agriculture machines, more efficient continues to be a priority after the final phase-in of the U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. “Some of the companies we work with are running out of credits and unfortunately still struggling with Tier 4,” explained Tristan Donley, Technical Director, Off-Highway Heavy Vehicles North American for Exa, a supplier of software for computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
With the new SCALEXIO LabBox, dSPACE offers a compact high-performance system for hardware-in-the-loop tests.
The accuracy of an NO gas sensor (the primary component of NOx) can be compromised when exposed to ambient temperatures above 86°F (30°C) and significantly more so above 104°F (40°C).
