HBM introduces universal amplifier for QuantumX
25 March 2010
HBM's new MX440A is a four-channel universal amplifier that supports up to 15 different transducer types per channel. All four channels can all be individually configured and can be used for measuring a wide range of mechanical, thermal or electrical quantities such as force, displacement, torque, temperature, pressure, rotational speed, position, speed, acceleration, voltage or current.
The amplifier supports, for example, half- and full- bridge circuits (strain-gage and inductive transducers), resistors, piezo-resistive transducers, potentiometers, voltage, current, thermocouples, LVDT, pulse counters and rotary encoders. The input channels are electrically isolated and each provides one 24-bit analog-to-digital converter. Ethernet TCP/IP and automatic configuration allow for easy and fast connection to the PC.
The MX440A is suitable for a wide range of applications including, for example, automated testing of system components and the testing or long-term monitoring of tunnels.
The amplifier is designed to complement the QuantumX amplifier system and features outstanding flexibility. Features include Advanced Plug & Measure (APM) enabling TEDS transducers and sensors to automatically configure the channel. This minimizes set-up times in daily operation and increases efficiency and reliability.
The MX440A is supported by a comprehensive software package that ranges from the free QuantumX-Assistant through to libraries for integration into LabView® or into programming environments such as Visual Studio .NET and the professional catman®AP software package.
