SICO2, SICO2B and SICO2I
The signal converter SICO2 is a universal converter for voltage signals, digital (frequency) signals, logical signals (requires optional extension), signals from a serial port and signals from a Controller Area Network (CAN). The acquired signals can be assigned to any output of the SICO2. These are voltage signal outputs, digital signal outputs (e.g. frequency), logical signal outputs (requires optional extension), signals for a CAN and signals which are passed on to a host PC via a further serial port. Furthermore, up to eight signals can be displayed on the integrated LCD.
Before using the signal converter, it must first be set up. This is done by defining a parameter set with the PC program TEMES (for Windows XP or better), and then by transferring this parameter set via a serial connection (COM port). TEMES also provides means to calibrate a voltage signal either at one known point (offset adjustment) or at two known points (two-point calibration). After everything is set up, the signal converter can do its job without necessarily being connected to the PC.
