The example of a MultiCon controller / recorder application in an innovative project includes the recording of the battery charge level on a solar boat. It is a project of Polish scientists which regularly brings success in the international arena. Thanks to data recorded by MultiCon, their authors can carefully analyze the change of battery parameters over time, adjusting its features in a manner that allows to achieve its increasing efficiency.
The MultiCon used in the application: CMC-141-PS32/ETU/E/E/U24-01C
U24 module contains 24 voltage inputs which are used to measure the battery charge level, aiming to store energy which is acquired from solar cells.
Using ETU module allows to implement a permanent Ethernet recorder communication with boat control system elements.
Additional front sealing of the device increases resistance up to IP 65 which in combination with a protected PCB results in a safe data logger operation in outdoor areas.
22 logical channels are used to read values from 22 voltage inputs, and the results are expressed as a percentage. Recording is activated by a user for a boat test period or for the time of a competition.
