Measurement systems for extreme environments
Measurement under harsh environmental conditions such as extreme temperatures, water spray and intense vibration requires appropriately protected measurement equipment. This applies especially to long-duration measurements outdoors or testing on board moving vehicles.

Product Description

imc CRONOS-SL – extremely robust ideal for harsh environments

imc CRONOS-SL is a highly compact, super-robust mobile measurement system, for applications in tough environments. Conforming to MIL STD810F, one of the highest standards for temperature, environmental contaminants, and shock resistance, the signal conditioning, AD-conversion, online processing and data storage are integral components of the measurement system. This makes imc CRONOS-SL ideal for measurement tasks involving long duration testing and monitoring tasks: e.g., on board vehicles, machinery or at outdoor measurement sites, where regular measurement equipment often fails to meet the environmental conditions.


  • Extremely robust measuring system: Meets MIL STD810F standard for temperature and shock resistance
  • Works autonomously and without a PC
  • WLAN, GPRS / UMTS-capability
  • Data can be stored either in device and/or PC
  • Precision amplifier with integrated signal conditioning for all conventional sensors
  • High sampling rates for dynamic measurements down to the acoustic range

imc CRONOS-SL: Models

The imc CRONOS-SL series is available in two different housing options. With its freely configurable measurement amplifier design, imc CRONOS-SL allows direct connection of any desired signals and sensors, and provides both power and conditioning. This enables ideal system adaptation to a wide variety of measurement tasks. Besides the acquisition of raw data, freely defined processing of channel signals can be performed in real time. All analog or digital channels, as well as computed data streams, are available for use in open and closed-loop control tasks, or for value limit monitoring. Meanwhile, measurement channels carried on the CAN/LIN-Bus, and encoded in a variety of protocols, can be acquired in synchronization with the others and processed in the same way as the analog measurement channels.

imc CRONOS-SL is equipped with an Ethernet TCP/IP interface, by means of which it is connected with the PC. Measurement network setups with any desired additional and synchronized imc measurement device is also possible.
