Data Recorder Enables Speedy Interactive Vehicle Testing

The SomatXR CX22B-R data recorder is groomed for acquiring and storing measured data in mobile applications such as vehicle testing. The data recorder is well-suited for use in harsh environments, with an extended temperature range of -40°C to +80°C. Additionally, it is shock- and vibration-proof, and has an IP65/IP67 degree of protection provided by its water-, dust-, and shock-proof enclosure.


Both centralized and distributed measuring systems can be implemented. Pre-installed catman measurement software facilitates acquiring and storing data in .bin format. This format includes measured values, traceability data, and allows for easy conversion to other formats. Immediate data visualization and analysis during measurements in the field enables users to perform efficient tests and create clear and comprehensive test reports.


The SomatXR data acquisition system provides two flexible mobile measurement solutions: the extremely rugged CX22B-R data recorder for interactive testing, and the CX23-R data recorder with a web interface for unsupervised testing. Besides these two data recorders, seven equally rugged measuring amplifiers are available for acquiring different physical quantities.


Additionally, the unit includes an integrated uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for fail-safe operation in the vehicle. If you need more data, get a data-recorder datasheet.
