NAMING CONCEPT By decision of the ITS top management the SPMT developed a new concept for

By decision of the ITS top management the SPMT developed a new concept for the AVL software Suite. This includes a naming concept as well as definition of the life cycle of the Suite. This concept was agreed on May 5th 2009 and is valid from this date.

The naming concept takes several boundary conditions into account defined by the messages that shall be transported:

Make it easy for customers to know which products fit together

Keep value of product brands

Emphasize system approach

The name for the IndiCom version that will be released in October 2009 will be

AVL IndiCom 2010

Channel Filter Set

Allows users to assign channel filter criteria to a set of filters and save them under a definable name. The defined channel filter sets can be activated quickly via the channel filter list

Data Point Filter

Via the Data Point Filter option in a dataset’s context menu you can filter out the data points from a long measurement that are relevant for an evaluation. This function is useful e.g. in cases where the measurement has several curves which then need to be evaluated individually. You can now define a filter for the data key that returns only those records from all channels in which the value of the curve channel is 1. Data point filters are are ideally suited for control channels which contain the relevant curve numbers (or phase, mode, cycle, etc.). It is then possible to filter by these data points.

Dataset Display

Datasets which are shown in any form in the current diagram window are now marked in Channel Browser by the corresponding formatting.

Modifying Graphics Attributes

Via the context auto toolbar of Channel Browser you can modify the graphics attributes in one step in all tests and across the entire layout. Changes made at the file/test level will affect all displayed datasets of the selected test, at the channel/dataset level these will affect all displayed datasets of the same name.

Raw Data Streaming is now available both on a time and angle basis. This allows users to also measure the time data in Streaming mode.

Benefits:

Parallel streaming of time- and crankanglebased raw data

enables to perform realtime calculation of results on the PC (SoftRTP)

save time because on measurement completion all data have already been transferred to the PC

new measurement solutions to record all the necessary information

Only fo GigaBit systems!!

COLD START MEASUREMENT Gernot Hacker, October 2009 In this mode, normal angle-based parameters are automatically converted

Gernot Hacker, October 2009

In this mode, normal angle-based parameters are automatically converted internally into time values and measured. This way all signals involved in the cold start process are available as time-based data which are then also converted into an angle-based IFile. During the measurement, the time-based signals are plotted over angle base using a fast macro.

Benefits:

Measurement of effects happening already before first engine rotation (e.g. battery voltage drop)

Data file with time- and crank angle based information of all measured channels

No need of complicated time to crank angle conversion after the measurement

Online display of raw data and calculation results for fast engine start evaluation

Only fo GigaBit systems!!

Event 1

Event 2

Event 3

In this mode, if the Normal measurement mode is selected, a measurement can be saved to a separate file after an event has occurred. This has the advantage that the event measurement takes place regardless of normal test bed operation. Simultaneous measurements (single-, snapshot- or PUMA measurements) are not affected by this.

Benefits:

Execution of two measurement at the same time

Generation of separate measurement file for easy data access

Capturing of events on cyclic basis even during averaged measurements takes place

SNAPSHOT MEASUREMENT

SNAPSHOT MEASUREMENT In order to record events that occur suddenly, this can now also be triggered
SNAPSHOT MEASUREMENT In order to record events that occur suddenly, this can now also be triggered

In order to record events that occur suddenly, this can now also be triggered very simply by pressing the space bar. This measurement is possible in all measuring variants with Streaming and Monitoring and is independent of other measurements. A separate file (BackgroundFile) is created with a definable name and path.

Benefits:

Capture of events even without defining an event in the parameters

Measurement of unpredictable events

No disturbance of ongoing measurements

Easy data handling by saving a separate file

MEASUREMENTS TRIGGERED VIA HARDWARE For special applications in test bed operation a measurement can be started

For special applications in test bed operation a measurement can be started via an external signal (e.g. via Digital In). This enables users to save data in sync with such an external signal. As of PUMA Open 2010 it is possible to perform real-time measurements using the function Bit- controlled measurement series.

Benefits:

Triggering a measurement via external surface feeler (e.g. two wheeler application)

Triggering of measurements via external Bits for synchronization of different measurement systems

Support for Puma 2010 real time measurement

The additional program Sensor Admin can be called via the Utilities option in the workflow bar.

Sensor Admin serves for sensor administration in an Access database. When setting the parameters for the amplifiers in IndiCom you can take over the respective sensor’s calibration data automatically from this database.

With Sensor Admin you can add new sensors, delete old ones, make required adjustments and display the sensitivity of the individual calibrations over time as a trend.

Copy Object Attributes

The toolbar button Format Brush can be used to apply object attributes (color, line width, line type, marker, label, font) of a given object to other objects of the same type. If the user selects a target object by right-click, a context menu will open showing a selection of the attributes to be copied. If the target object is selected by left-clicking it, all attributes will be copied.

Scale Range Property "Interval Rounded“

The functionality Interval Rounded was reactivated for the scale range settings. By deactivating this setting it is now possible to define an exact scale range without causing the grid spacing to be rounded.

Extensions to CA Processor / 4CA1 CA calculator

The Double Gap Mode allows users to use double-gap disks. The Delay Compensation for Inductive Sensors function can be used to compensate for the speed-dependent delay of inductive sensors.
