Software update efficiently calculates electrical quantities in real time

HBM has launched the 6.42 version of its Perception software featuring real time calculation of various values such as current and voltage that need to be measured and evaluated in various industries.

Millions of measurement data may need to be acquired, stored and visualized every second during efficiency and safety tests in the aviation sector or while evaluating electric motors in the automotive sector. Similar measurements are also needed during the monitoring of generators, motors or inverters.

Users can now implement real time calculations per channel using several logical calculation channels. Calculations such as the real RMS value, min/max/mean values, peak-to-peak, area and energy can now be easily undertaken.

Another advantage of the latest version is that sampling rates can be automatically switched following a trigger event in real time calculation channels. This means that maximum sampling rates can be reserved for only particularly interesting measurement events resulting in smaller data volumes making testing and evaluation significantly more efficient.

The latest version of Perception also features an intuitive user interface that facilitates the fast and secure processing of large volumes of data.

Perception has been developed to complement the range of data recorders in HBM's Genesis HighSpeed family that provide numerous different features for comprehensive testing purposes in real time. One example is the latest 8kV data acquisition card that measures up to ±1.000 V with high accuracy at sampling rates of up to 2 MS/s. The application options of the Genesis High-Speed products using the 1 kV card are significantly broadened when combined with the latest Perception software version 6.42.
