Shock Data Logger Monitors Transports
for Over 2 Years
The MSR175 data logger
from MSR Electronics,
which has been optimized
for shock and impact measurements up to ±200 g,
is now also available in a
version with a replaceable
Li-SOCI2 battery, which allows an even longer operating time compared to the standard
Li-Po battery: This enables transport and storage monitoring
of sensitive goods over a period of more than two years.
Despite appropriate packaging and careful selection of
means and routes of transport, freight is exposed to a variety
of risks on its way to the customer. Excessively hard impacts
during loading, transhipment or unloading, excessively high
temperatures or impermissible humidity levels are among the
most frequent causes of damage.
The Swiss technology company MSR Electronics GmbH,
which specializes in the development of modular data loggers
and wireless data logger systems, presents a further development of the MSR175 transportation data logger that is already
successfully used worldwide, namely the MSR175B54 type
variant, which, depending on the setting of the recording parameters, allows a considerably longer monitoring operating
life of over two years. The data logger records and documents
shocks in the measuring ranges of ±15 g and ±200 g with a
measuring rate of up to 6,400 measurements per second. In
addition, the tamper-proof data logger measures and stores
temperature curves from -20 °C to +65 °C; depending on the
type variant also humidity, pressure and light. The simple
operation of the MSR175 and the user-friendly PC software ensure smooth operation in transport and logistics.

New Functions for Measurement
Software
Spectrum Instrumentation adds customization, automation
and interpolation capabilities to its SBench 6 software that is
used for controlling Spectrum Instrumentation's 130 different
high-performance digitizers, 55 different Arbitrary Waveform
Generators and 5 Digital I/O products. SBench 6 provides
an easy-to-use graphical interface for instrumentation control as well as data acquisition, generation, display, analysis
and documentation. The
new features, most of them
free of charge, expand the
versatility of the software
by adding functionality
for automation as well as
130	

increasing the software's capabilities for signal processing and
measurement precision.
For users who want a simple way to utilize SBench6 in
an automated sequence of operations, a scripting tool is now
available. Scripting allows basic commands to be arranged via
a plain ASCII file that is called by the SBench 6 program. For
example, SBench 6 can be instructed to load specific configurations, start and stop acquisitions, wait or loop, export data and
even call external programs.
Another useful addition to the SBench 6-Professional software is data interpolation. This powerful feature can be used to
dramatically improve parameter measurements in situations
where the sampling rate of a digitizer is limiting measurement
precision.
SBench 6-Professional has an extensive array of data processing tools (e.g., FFT analysis, math functions, filtering,
averaging, parameter measurements, etc.) that can now be
complemented by a new plug-in option which enables users
to create their own customized calculations as a self-compiled
plug-in that is automatically linked into the SBench 6 calculation pool. The plug-in option includes an SDK as well as
a number of examples based on the C++ programming language. It allows programmers to develop their own plug-ins
by combining advanced calculations on the acquired signals.
Any calculation that can be realized with standard development methods is possible.
With the exception of the Plug-in tool for customized
calculations, which is an option, customers already using SBench 6-Professional can access the new capabilities
(Scripting, Single Value Formula, Input Chanel Preview and
Interpolation) for free. A free trial version of SBench 6-Professional is also available for anyone wishing to test the
program's capabilities.

Robot Operating System Drivers
The Robot Operating System (ROS) by ROS.org is a flexible
framework for robotics software development. PI's release
of ROS drivers is the company's latest addition to its H-811
high performance hexapod 6-axis miniature robot, allowing
fast, seamless integration into a ROS environment, with comfortable control using their well-known mechanisms. With
an included URDF model in the driver package, the H-811.i2
hexapod can also be simulated and visualized.
