digiCLIP - Take your production into the digital age

Do you want to measure force, weight, torque and pressure in the most modern way? digiCLIP propels your production into the digital age. digiCLIP is the modern modular amplifier system for industrial environments. It facilitates faster and more reliable measurement, and it’s easily installed, too.

digiCLIP helps slash downtimes when it comes to solving measurement tasks! It supports TEDS, the electronic datasheet in the transducer. digiCLIP recognizes transducers equipped with TEDS memory chips. Complex configuration and parameter assignment are no longer required. digiCLIP can even be set up by untrained staff.

digiCLIP adapts to your automation system, because digiCLIP uses standard PROFIBUS DP-V1, CANbus or DeviceNet interfaces. All device settings can be made via PC using free digiCLIP software. Exchanging or retrofitting amplifiers without turning off the system is not a problem – thanks to "Plug and Measure" and "HotSwapping".

Key features

  • 600 Hz carrier frequency
  • TEDS sensor recognition
  • Digital inputs (only DF 31)
  • Digital outputs (only DF 31)
  • Interfaces: CANopen, Profibus-DP, DeviceNet

See a live presentation about the advantages of digiCLIP from Michael Guckes, Product and Application Manager at HBM Test and Measurement. The interview was made on the SPS/IPC/DRIVES trade show in 2011.

Device Type Manager (DTM)

Efficient system asset management: Device Type Manager (DTM) enables central access to all digiCLIP amplifiers

The new, free Device Type Manager (DTM) provides central access to all digiCLIP amplifiers of your production system.

The DTM offers parameterization, control, and diagnostics functions. In addition, it provides a graphical user interface for intuitive handling. Installing the DTM is as easy as installing a printer driver on your PC. It can be integrated into any application using the standard FDT interface (Field Device Tool), for example, a monitoring or control system, engineering or asset management.

digiCLIP DTM Certification

The advantages of a system featuring an FDT interface and DTM are obvious: From a central point in the system, the service engineer has access to all digiCLIP amplifiers by as little as one double-click and immediately gets a status report. Then he can start a detailed diagnosis and, on occurrence of an error, eliminate it without having to access the instrument directly.

Even if you are already using digiCLIP amplifiers, you can easily upgrade with the DTM. Click on software/firmware downloads in the right column to get the free download.


In addition to the industrial amplifiers HBM provides the appropriate ePLAN macros. They allow easy and error-free integration of the instruments in the project planning of the automation environment.

ePLAN Electric P8 is an engineering tool for modern CAE software supported by a database and facilitates consistent project planning, documentation and administration of automation systems. ePLAN macros enable users to easily integrate the process controllers in their project planning. Parts data, drawings and pin assignments are available in ePLAN Electric P8 immediately after import of the macros.

The free macros are available on the documentation CD included in the process controllers' scope of supply and can also be downloaded here.

digiCLIP Assistant, Firmware Loader and USB Driver (for Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7/8/10) for easy setup of digiCLIP modules and for visualization.

For smooth operation of modules with CAN and DeviceNet interfaces, use the PEAK USB-to-CAN dongle.

For Profibus operation Hilscher and Siemens CP5511/12 and CP5711 is supported - to handle digiCLIP firmware-updates via CP5711 digiCLIP-modules have to be equipped with a adapted bootloader which is implemented starting with following serial-numbers: (DF30DP: 816711801 / DF31DP: 817427801).

All required drivers are included and will be installed during startup.

The CX-Integrator example program shows the basic test setup of a digiCLIP DF31DN connected to an Omron Sysmac CJ1M SPS with a CS1/CJ1 DRM21 fieldbus controller. In this example, consistent (coherent) data is read and written over the DeviceNet. The DF30DN operating manual provides all possible commands and values. This example does not imply any warranty or guarantee.

This example considers a simple test assembly including a Siemens CPU313-2DP and a DF30DP/DF31DP (digiclip). In this example, consistent (coherent) data are written and read via the Profibus with SFC14 and SFC15. As an additonal programming the parametercontainer is programmed to configure the DF30DP in the cyclic data exchange. To read configurations with DPV1 the Siemens function block SFB52 (PNO AK1131)is programmed, too. All commands and values for the configuration are shown in the official manual.

Legal notice: The example given is intended to illustrate the integration of the DF30DP into Siemens' Step7 software via Profibus. This example does not imply any warranty or guarantee.

This applicatin is to describe an example of a small-scale digiCLIP amplifier application in a CAN network using a CANopen based PLC. In this application, load cells implemented as strain gage full bridges are used for determining the filling level in a tank and taring it to 0 ... 100% using a PLC connected to the digiCLIP. This example does not imply any warranty or guarantee.
