The “Intelligent Current and Voltage Measurement Module” is used for the simultaneous measurement of voltage and current on all channels.
The ICVM can measure current peaks up to 320 mA / 3.2 A. With the programmable threshold value of the alarm trigger, out-of-range measurements are reported directly to the cRIO FPGA. This trigger can, for example, be used for disconnection in conjunction with the ISM or IMUX.
A further advantage is the voltage measurement after the shunt. As a result, the ICVM can be used to readjust the supply voltage and no additional sense lines need to be wired to the power supply.
