Latest charge amplifier measures over 1MN securely and reliably

HBM's latest PACEline CMA5000/2 piezoelectric charge amplifier has a measuring range of 5,000,000 pC making it ideal for safe and reliable measurement of large forces above 1MN although smaller forces in partial areas can also be measured rapidly and precisely.

The charge amplifier ensures secure measurement acquisition with piezoelectric force transducers using signal conditioning on analog standard signals ±10V. The device is particularly useful where there is very little space available such as in test technology, assembly monitoring and function testing, or where measurement objects display high rigidity.

The CMA5000/2 features two calibrated measuring ranges over 100% and 20% of the nominal (rated) force enabling users to check obtained a detailed examination of overload-critical sections in addition to securely measuring partial load areas. The overall measurement range can be increased without additional components such as summing boxes or measurement cables.

The PACEline CMA5000/2 is fitted with two parallel-switched inputs for piezoelectric sensors providing additional flexibility and an excellent price/performance ratio. The CMA amplifier has IP65 degree of protection for use in both challenging industrial environments and in laboratory applications. TEDS functionality is integrated enabling the charge amplifier to be immediately recognized and made operational quickly, securely and rapidly.

Customer-specific versions of the PACEline CMA5000/2 piezoelectric charge amplifier are available on request.
