CLIC SL Analog 4 with bipolar sensor power supply and counter function


To better address the technical requirements of vehicle measurement praxis, CAETEC has expanded its CLIC SL module series, adding a CAN analog-or-counter module with high-performance bipolar sensor power supply. The CLIC SL module series is especially designed for use in very limited installation space, even at high ambient temperatures. Also, we have now integrated the sensor power supply within the SL housing geometry.

From an electrical point of view, the CLIC SL Analog 4 belongs to the CLIC family of modules, and yet we have fitted it into a very space-saving housing, with the dimensions 55 x 40 x 105 mm. To increase installation flexibility, instead of common socket connectors from module to module, we have provided a dual six-pin socket block for looping through the bus lines within a CAN measurement chain.

The CLIC SL modules have been designed especially for the extended operating temperature range from -40 °C to +125 °C; for the range up to +85°C, we offer product number 103128. With a measurement range from +/-25 mV to +/-60 V, the sampling rate for each channel can be individually set in steps between 1 and 2000 Hz. All channels can be operated parallel at 2000 Hz, resulting in a maximum sum sampling rate of 8000 Hz. An extensive range of digital filters (including FIR-slow; FIR-fast, Butterworth, Chebyshev, and Eliptic, all of the eighth order; as well as freely programmable filters) can be easily activated and parameterized with CCPKonfig. A special feature is that each channel can be switched to counter operation at 0.02 Hz to 30 kHz, with signal sampling remaining at a constant 200 kHz. This versatile use as either counter or analog input simplifies configuration, inventory management and the cost of measurement modules. A special option is the pre-division function, frequently required for asymmetrical rotating bodies or fan wheels, for computing revolution readings from a number of irregularly distributed measurement points. The use of XCP protocol has significantly increased the user-friendliness of the module search function in CCPKonfig.
