Although half of the year is already over, the best is yet to come: the new update of our measurement software is out now. Meet OXYGEN 5.2 – the most intuitive and advanced measurement software you have probably ever seen! And to all the OXYGEN users out there: we added new features that enable you to get your work done even more easily and efficiently than before. OXYGEN 5.2 is available starting from now.
1. Channel-Wise Sample Rate Selection
2. Advanced Storing Modes
3. Matrix Sampler
4. Sound Level Meter
You are curious to read more about the new features of OXYGEN 5.2? Here you will get more! Keep on reading to see what kept us busy over the last couple of weeks.
Thanks to OXYGEN 5.2, you can adjust the parameters of your measurement even more precisely than before. While it was previously only possible to change the sample rate for the entire measurement module (TRION(3)-module), the selection for single channels is now possible as well. To do so, simply click on the sample rate you want to change (Figure 1). Then, a new window will open on your screen (Figure 2). There, you need to enable the reduction and select the target rate from the drop-down list. Please note that changing the sample rate of the whole card is still possible. In this case, you only need to select a value without enabling the reduction.
Advanced storing modes are another novelty of OXYGEN 5.2. This means, that starting from now, the following features are available:
To make use of these advanced storing modes, go to the ‘Trigger menu’ in your OXYGEN, click on ‘Individual channel configuration’ and activate the checkbox ‘Customize settings per channel’ (Figure 3).
Once you are there, you can select advanced storing modes for the columns ‘Waveform Mode’, ‘Statistics Mode’ and ‘Statistics Window’ which you can find next to the ‘Sample Rate’-column (Figure 3). For each column, there are several options to choose from:
Please note that the columns ‘Statistics Mode’ and ‘Statistics Window’ will disappear in the individual channel configuration if disabled in the trigger settings (Figure 4).
In our OXYGEN 5.2 version, we welcome another entirely new feature: the matrix sampler. It displays the relation between two channels (X-axis and Y-axis) and an input channel (Z-axis) in the form of a color-coded matrix. It is possible to display this matrix in the ‘Intensity Diagram’ instrument of our measurement software (Figure 5).
There are two ways to create a matrix sampler:
If you create an efficiency map out of the power group settings, the channels are assigned automatically: speed is used as a reference channel for the X-axis, torque for the Y-axis and the mechanical efficiency for the Z-axis as the input channel. In the settings of the matrix sampler channel, you can set various options.
This feature is included in DEWETRON’s advanced power option (OXY-OPT-POWER-ADV).
OXYGEN 5.2 now offers a new option – a sound level plugin. It can be used to determine the time-dependent sound pressure level according to IEC 61672 and IEC 651. Following features are available:
By using the OXYGEN sound level option, you can for instance monitor sound over a long period. In addition to that, you can perform a statistical sound pressure level analysis, determine the sound pressure level for airborne sound and water and much more. Have a look at Figure 6 to see the available output channels.
