Ipetronik has found a new partner for amperometry: The manufacturer of automotive measurement technology has negotiated a worldwide cooperation agreement with Stuttgart-based Stefan Klaric GmbH & Co. KG.
Klaric’s KLARI products are becoming part of Ipetroniks offering, especially components and measuring systems for the development of on-board power supplies used in vehicles.
Among the products Ipetronik is going to offer are KLARI-MOD-SC, a single-channel module, KLARI-MOD-MC2 a dual-channel and Klari-Fuse as an eight-channel module. The measuring modules and data output are configured via the isolated CAN or USB interface. These modules provide a dedicated ASIC for every input, so a multiplexer for switching over the inputs is not necessary.
KLARI-CORD2 has been developed for power-saving operating and zero-signal current investigations. The three-channel module performs extremely low-current measurements of current and two voltages, or current, voltage and temperature (using a PT1000 sensor) with approximately 10 mA own power consumption. The measurements are performed serially via an ASIC with adjustable sampling rates. All values measured are saved on a SD card with a time stamp. If required, the module transmits the data also over CAN.
With KLARI-PROBES, Ipetronik also offers measuring adapters for those modules. For measuring currents, the probes are equipped with low-resistance precision shunts, while a voltage divider is used for measuring voltages. Temperature measurements are performed with PT100/PT1000 resistance thermometers, which are also available as an acid-proof version. All KLARI-PROBES feature a memory chip with a communication line to the measuring module. This allows configuration data such as the measuring range, alignment values, serial numbers, etc. to be read from the probes and transmitted to the measuring module. The alignment values are taken into account when calculating the measured values.
“In Klaric, we have found a professional partner, whose product portfolio fits optimally into our own range of products”, remarked Andreas Geh, Sales & Marketing Director at Ipetronik. “The products from Klaric are characterised like our own by consistent development work and their excellent value for money. Thanks to the support from IPEmotion, Klaric offers a genuine added value for its customers and permits the simple integration of its current measuring solutions into overall systems. Thanks to IPEmotion, every Klaric user also receives the added bonus of a fully-fledged PC measurement recording and visualisation facility for their equipment free of charge.”
