Yokogawa Meters & Instruments Announces Release of DL850 ScopeCorder and DL850V ScopeCorder Vehicle Edition
Yokogawa Meters & Instruments Corporation announces release of two new ScopeCorders. The standard DL850 ScopeCorder model succeeds the DL750 ScopeCorder released in 2002 and features a number of significant enhancements. The DL850V Vehicle Edition is a special model that includes added functions for use in automotive research and development.
With the ability to capture high-speed signals, both of these new models can accurately measure the signal waveforms from inverters, which play a key role in reducing energy consumption. Both are capable of performing multi-channel waveform recording over extended periods, increasing efficiency in such product development applications as the analysis of signals from electrical and control systems in today’s increasingly computerized automobiles.
With the rising awareness of the importance of energy and resource conservation, manufacturers of home appliances and other products are seeking to optimize their designs to reduce energy consumption. Motor-driven appliances such as refrigerators and air-conditioners rely on inverters that can reduce power consumption by closely controlling the motor speed. Accordingly, manufacturers are developing more efficient inverter designs by increasing their conversion frequency, which requires the ability to measure high-speed signals.
Furthermore, with the accelerating pace of development of electronic control systems, hybrid vehicles, and electric vehicles by the automotive industry, the number of items that must be measured and evaluated is increasing and they are becoming more complex. Accordingly, measuring instruments for development and evaluation require more input channels and memory than ever before. In addition, there is an ever rising need for the analysis of signals that travel over controller area network (CAN) busses, which have become the de-facto standard in automotive digital communications.
To meet these market requirements, the company has developed the DL850 and DL850V ScopeCorders.
Major Target Markets and Applications
* About ScopeCorder
The major feature of the ScopeCorder is its ability to observe physical signal outputs over extended periods of time, and it is particularly useful in mechatronics related development activities, where a great emphasis is placed on noise-proof performance. The ScopeCorder is both an oscilloscope that can capture rapid events and a data recorder that can record trends with high resolution and over extended periods of time.
