Now available from HBM - a market leader in the field of test and measurement - is the new eight channel universal MX840B DAQ amplifier, which supports the QuantumX data acquisition system and offers precision and adaptability to frequently varying measurement tasks.

Like other models available from the QuantumX range, the MX840B features outstanding flexibility and offers excellent measurement performance and ease of use.

Suitable for a wide range of different applications, its universal connectors make the MX840B ideally suited for all common sensor technologies, no matter what principles of measurement are required. The eight channels can all be individually configured and used to measure a wide range of mechanical, thermal, electrical and hydraulic quantities, such as force, strain, acceleration, torque, rotational speed, temperature, voltage, current, pressure and flow rate.

The amplifier supports more than 15 different sensor and transducer types, for example half and full bridge circuits (strain gauge and inductive transducers), resistors, potentiometric, voltage, current, thermocouples, LVDT, Ohmic and rotary encoders. The amplifier also features an input for CANbus.

In addition, the new module also supports current-fed piezoelectric transducers (IEPE/ICP) on each channel. Featuring a sampling rate of 40 kS/s and a signal bandwidth of 7 kHz, the new MX840B is ideal for measuring and analysing electrical vibrations, mechanical vibrations and noises in the time, frequency and angle domain. As with other QuantumX modules, the new MX840B can also be distributed up to 100m and used synchronously, using Ethernet and PTP, enabling it to be integrated easily into networks.

Designed to complement the QuantumX amplifier system and featuring outstanding versatility, additional features of the MX840B include Advanced Plug and Measure (APM), which enables TEDS transducers and sensors to configure the channel automatically, minimising set up times and increasing efficiency and reliability.

In addition to MX840B, other modules from the HBM universal range of data acquisition system include the MX440B and MX410B. Also available from HBM is a wide range of data acquisition system modules for special measurement tasks, gateways and transmitters, data recorders and accessories.

Founded in Germany in 1950, HBM is today the technology and market leader in the field of test and measurement. HBM's product range comprises solutions for the entire measurement chain, from virtual to physical testing. The company has production facilities in Germany, USA and China and is represented in over 80 countries worldwide.
