Latest universal 8-channel amplifier complements QuantumX

HBM has launched the MX840A, an 8-channel universal amplifier that supports up to 15 different transducer types per channel. The amplifier is designed to provide increased operational flexibility in measuring mechanical, electrical and thermal quantities.

Strain gages and inductive transducers – in full- and half- bridge configuration – voltage, current and resistive transducers, along with all common thermocouple types and rotary encoders are all supported. The amplifier also features one input for CANbus.

Typical applications include automated testing of system components, mobile measurement data acquisition, long-term monitoring or laboratory applications. All eight inputs provide 24-bit analog-to-digital converter, synchronized data acquisition and are electrically isolated to ensure high measurement accuracy.

TEDS transducers and sensors automatically configure channels thanks to HBM’s Advanced Plug & Measure (APM) thus further increasing the amplifier’s flexibility. This reduces setup times to the minimum in daily operation and improves efficiency and quality. A comprehensive and open sensor database is available if TEDS equipment is not used.

The MX840A features Ethernet TCP/IP and automatic configuration enabling rapid and simplified connection to a PC. The amplifier has a comprehensive software package that comprises the free QuantumX-Assistant packages and libraries for integration into LabView® or programming environments such as Visual Studio .NET for programmers.
