QuantumX amplifiers save data acquisition time.

HBM has launched a universal amplifier, QuantumX, with eight connectors each of which independently recognizes and supports all current transducer technologies. In addition, integrated “Advanced Plug & Measure” (APM) technology reduces test setup configuration to a few minutes. The compact design of QuantumX makes it easy to integrate into test equipment where space is a constraint.

Each of the eight universal connectors on the device front supports data acquisition with 24-bit resolution. The instrument is compatible with transducers based on a wide range of technologies such as strain gage or inductive full and half bridge, voltage, current, thermocouples, resistance thermometers as well as frequency or pulse counting. Up to 128 CAN signals can be acquired on one connector. Transducers fitted with TEDS technology are automatically recognized as soon as they are connected to QuantumX while transducers without TEDS are easily configured using the expandable sensor database.

The number of QuantumX channels can be individually increased to match the application, either as a compact bundle of devices joined together using Clip technology, or distributed via Ethernet or Firewire (in preparation) to PC.

HBM’s catman®AP software for data acquisition and analysis is optimally matched to the new amplifier. Thanks to the API programming interface and the LabVIEW driver, users of other DAQ software can also benefit from QuantumX advantages.
