Distributed Working Processes
jBEAM is a flexible software for editing and visualization of measurement data. The data can be edited both online and offline. 15 years ago, the project jBEAM was started with the clear objective to support optimallymeasurement data processing in distributed working processes. A basic requirement for this is the availability for different operating systems like Windows (32 bit and 64 bit), Linux (64 bit) and Mac OSX (64 bit).
In addition to the distributed applications, jBEAM can also be used for local applications, and is also in that case superior to other Windows desktop programs regarding speed and flexibility. Due to the wide range of applications of jBEAM, it becomes the clear favorite for departmental or company-wide use.
Extensible ASAM-CEA Framework
jBEAM is an open framework that is compatible with the ASAM-CEA standard. Therewith service provider or the end user can develop their own functional components and thus extend the functionality of jBEAM. In addition to the ASAM-CEA standard, the ASAM-ODS standard is supported as well. On the one hand ATFX files can be read and on the other hand data can be imported from ODS databases.
jBEAM supports both online and offline data processing. There are various input components for connection to amplifier, measurement modules or PLC. With appropriate input components jBEAM can also be used in automation systems where it assumes the entire graphical user interface.
The focus of the offline use is the wide range of file importers that support more than 100 file formats. Special importers for GPS formats as well as video, audio and image formats complete the fields of application.
The imported data can be subsequently processed with the mathematical analysis and evaluation functions, always with the aim to present the contents of the data optimally to the user. Whether FFT, order analysis, filtering, counting methods, plateau analysis, NCAP crash, UIC 518, engine map, haptics, calibration etc., hardly a field of application is outside of jBEAM.
The import or calculation of the data is followed by the visualization. Extensive online representations can be combined with control elements, offline graphs, etc. WYSIWYG is understood. The report is defined as well as the online graphics and everything can be printed. For reports special functions such as table of contents, headers and footers are available. Even gesture control is supported if the user utilizes a touch monitor. In addition to the printout of the reports graphical output formats such as PDF, Word, and PowerPoint are offered as well as some other data formats.
Measurement data were in many applications Big Data, before the definition was actually established. 10 million values per channel, 3000 channels, 1 GB video to the test, these are today the requirements in R&D of the automotive industry: jBEAM can do it!
Localized User Interface/Reports
User friendliness starts with the software user interface. 11 languages are already supported by jBEAM. Due to the international use, new languages accrue continuously.
The generated reports can be created multilingual. Any text can be defined in any number of languages. The user, who opens this report file, sees the report automatically in his language.
What in the field of passive safety (crash) is standard today, finds more and more its way into a variety of test areas: video. jBEAM offers in addition to the synchronous playback of several videos, special techniques to extract individual images and display them synchronously with a gradient. Thus, the report can also be enriched with information from the test video.
With the enterprise communication software EnCom several decentralized jBEAM instances can communicate and exchange data. Various optimizations minimize the traffic over the network. Only with such a minimization distributed systems can be realized with hundreds of users.
Geo-referenced (GPS-) Data
jBEAM supports many special GPS formats (GPX, KML, FIT, NMEA, etc.). Furthermore, a map display with different map service providers (OSM, Google, Bing) is offered. No data will be sent to international service providers. Only map tiles are obtained from the map providers. The curves are locally drawn by jBEAM on it so that no data is going outside. Experiments can be repeatedly played with animated representation of the measurement object synchronous to video and data on the map.
jBEAM in MDM Systems
Due to jBEAM is designed for use in distributed working processes, it can be optimally integrated into measurement data management systems. Whether in the AMS own MaDaM or in third-party MDM systems, our customers receive a high-performance solution for distributed data access.
