192 channel datalogger

TTMS delivered a 192 channel datalogger system to one of its customers. The system is intended to measure the voltage and current distribution in a large production machine for the semiconductor industry.

The system consists of 12 PCI cards with 16 input channels each, built in an industrial PC. In the PC we placed a 30TB HD system and a graphics card for four high resolution HDMI monitors. The PCI cards have a 16-bit A/D converter with an internal memory of 2GB and a maximum sampling frequency of 100k samples per second. All 192 channels are, seen in time, fully synchronized.

The setup is divided into 80 AC power channels, 16 AC voltage channels, 48 AC/DC power channels and 48 DC voltage channels. All current probes and voltage probes are made to customer specification. For example, the AC/DC current probes are supplied with a combined signal / power cable where the 9V power supply for these probes comes from a central DC power supply. So there is no need to constantly change batteries or use 48, 9V adapters. We have also done this for the AC differential voltage probes.

With this setup the customer can stream the data from the 192 channels to the Hard Disk at maximum sample frequency. And this for up to more than 9 days. In this way, the influence of voltage / current disturbances in one branch of the power distribution in relation to the other branches of the distribution network can be investigated in a simple way.

"The ABB Power Grids Jumet organisation is an innovative development and production facility of ABB that manufactures active filters and battery energy storage systems to support a stable grid. To test these systems we have acquired two Cinergia GE/EL +120kVA eplus units capable of doing grid emulation (AC + DC), operating as an electronic load (AC +DC) and being a battery emulator. We have experienced very good support from TTMS in obtaining these two Cinergia units. This included organising an on-site demonstration and supplying loan systems prior to the delivery of our final systems. This way we could start testing as early as possible. TTMS also organised training for the operators from the original manufacturer. This support allowed us to introduce the first battery energy storage systems even prior to the full delivery of the Cinergia systems."

“At the Energy and Environment department of the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine (FSTM) of the University of Luxembourg we do have different research projects related to green energy contributing to the development of eco-cities. As a long-standing partner of our research unit, TT&MS has proven that they are able to answer even the most complex questions in a professional manner. They have shown that they are always up to date with the latest technology and do not spare any effort to look at the application and even the situation on site. The exchange of ideas was always very pleasant and took place quickly. We look forward to further years of fruitful cooperation.”
