MCS-MEA-CUB (BiSS to EtherCAT)

The Measurement System of the Robot Makers GmbH enables synchronous and distributed measuring with a variety of sensor systems including BiSS sensors.
The hardware-based implementation of the measurements by means of a powerful FPGA, the recorded values can be pre-processed or even charged in every sample.
The Measurement System is primarily characterized by a high measuring frequency of 20 kHz.
Using the EtherCAT interface, also provides the ability to run multiple Measurement Systems decentralized, while getting centralized access to the measurements.
In this case, it is possible to achieve a synchronization accuracy of less than 1 microseconds.
The MCS-MEA-CUB-002 Measurement System cube provides 4x SSI, 2x 3 BiSS (on request).
