Service applications highlight demand for lighter high-performance amplifiers

Service engineers face challenges because they are often examining equipment that is fitted and operational. This means that they can be working in confined spaces with limited access. Working on such applications places high demands on engineers and on the equipment needed.


HBM's espressoDAQ measuring amplifiers are ideal for such service applications, such as checking the forces on tram brakes, because they are easy to transport, simple to install and deliver reliable measurement results rapidly.

The espressoDAQ series of light, pocket-format amplifiers take power from a laptop's USB port and work on the "plug & measure" principle. This enables service engineers to obtain useful measurement results rapidly.

The measuring amplifiers support TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheet) ensuring automatic recognition and configuration of appropriate transducers. A wide range of adapter cables and an RJ45 connector for transducer connection ensure all equipment configurations can easily be met.

Metrology technology specialist HBM has developed the espressoDAQ modules to be inexpensive despite their high-quality and performance capability. For example, reliable measurement results are ensured with the carrier frequency technology and 24 bit resolution A/D converter.

Each amplifier can be individually configured for current or voltage inputs while measurements using strain gauges (SG) - either half or full bridge circuits - are also possible. All types of thermocouples can be connected and, depending on the module type, either four or eight channels can be measured synchronously.

Every espressoDAQ module is supplied with simple-to-operate software, for configuration, data acquisition and visualization. This aids the service engineer as it takes just a few steps to obtain measurement results.

The measurement values of different channels can easily be added together to obtain resulting parameters. Finally measured data can be exported in most current formats while reports are easily created using included templates.
