Latest module makes high-precision temperature measurement easy

HBM has launched the MX1609-T measuring amplifier module for the QuantumX measuring system to simplify the taking of high-precision temperature measurements.

The latest measuring amplifier features 16 electrically isolated inputs for type T thermocouples, which can be used at temperatures between -40 °C and 125 °C. Thermocouples with quality class A and accuracy of ±0.5°C are available in this measuring range.

One particularly user-friendly feature of the measuring amplifier module enables information to be saved in the connector via the sensor. Thermal calibration data can be saved for highly accurate measurements to allow for absolute thermal precision in measurements. Users can also save a measuring point designator in the connector for automatic identification of measuring points. This eliminates the need to attach a measuring point designator on the cable and the measuring point designation becomes visible when the sensor is plugged in.

HBM’s QuantumX system features simple operation to facilitate measurements with numerous measuring amplifier modules for rapid expansion to suit any task and is fitted with an integrated Ethernet interface for connecting to a measuring PC. The system can also be integrated into test benches via CAN or EtherCAT and can be operated independently using a data recorder.
