Battery Data Logger - Recording Temperature Data via CAN Bus
Case Studies / SRM
About: SRM are developing the TorqAmp, an electric driven centrifugal compressor for the aftermarket automotive, also called an "electric turbo" (for boosting a combustion engine)
What problem did you solve?
During testing we wanted to gather a lot of data, e.g. the temperature sensors, boost time, current flow, etc - CAN bus is a nice way to communicate these data, add extra sensors (e.g. pressure, GPS) or show values on a screen
How did you solve it?
During test drives we always connected the CL2000 to easily debug when a problem occurred. We knew when a problem occurred - and based on sensor data, we knew exactly where to look and how to solve the problems
What benefit has this led to?The major benefit is plug-and-play data logging and easy data evaluation via our data analyzing tool. An important aspect of our product is that the temperature is kept within limits - and connecting multiple temperature sensors was key in designing the product
"The CL2000 is a great plug'n'play product for easy data logging!"
Why did you choose the CLX000?
We chose the CL2000 because of the integrated real time clock (RTC) - for temperature measurements it's great to know the date and time so we can look back what the atmospheric temperature was for proper data evaluation. The CANedge2 was not yet released, otherwise we would probably have bought it for the nice WiFi benefit
