PMX Data Acquisition and Control System

The new industry standard for measurement

Advanced lab measurement technology from HBM, perfectly designed for use in modern production: PMX is the leading data acquisition and control system for use in production lines and industrial test benches.

PMX enables professional and precise acquisition of force, torque, vibration, pressure, strain, temperature, voltage, current, frequency, speed, angle of rotation, rotational direction and many other quantities.

All channels are rated with 38,400 samples per second. With 16 measuring channels and 32 calculating channels, PMX as a whole is rated up to 400,000 values per second.

PMX is your ideal control module for application in modern production plants thanks to...:

  • Support of real-time communication via Industrial Ethernet
  • Modern browser-based user software
  • Flexible plug-in cards

...all of this at an unbeatable price!

PMX is your first choice in process control, press-fit monitoring, monitoring of machines, industrial test benches and end-of-line test stands.

Application Reports and Technical Articles

PMX: Simulation of an incremental rotary encoder

Some functions blocks enable a digital incremental rotary encoder with two tracks and zero index to be simulated. A displacement or angular value is used as input signal.

Configuration demo for PMX and read/write consistent data via EtherCat using TwinCat

This short example considers a simple configuration demo for the PMX amplifier connected to a PC EtherCAT-master PLC with TwinCat, who is working as EtherCat master.

PMX Trigger Output

In this example, the overpassing of an angle initiates an output signal if the force is in between specific limits.

Checking force against a tolerance band with PMX

During a stroke movement with measurement of force and displacement, the force is continuously checked against a tolerance band.

Stress analysis with PMX

PMX offers a suitable glyph for stress analysis using rosette SGs. The block returns the two principal stresses, the angle of the first principal stress, the maximum shear stress and the von Mises reference stress.

Testing force at specific points on the displacement axis with PMX

During a stroke motion with measurement of force and displacement, the force is measured at a specific point on the displacement axis.

T40 Torque Flange with the PMX System

This is a quickstart guide on connecting a T40 torque flange to a PMX System.

Configuration demo for PMX and read/write consistent data via ProfiNet to Siemens PLC S7 - 315 - 2 PN/DP

This short example considers a simple configuration demo for the PMX amplifier connected to a Siemens PLC type S7-315-2 PN/DP.

Calculating the force introduction point with PMX

Determining the force introduction point on a plate with three force transducers.

PMX - Use of a piezoelectric sensor

These tips for use describe how to connect a piezoelectric sensor to a PMX system and a charge amplifier (type CMA/ CMD) and how to put it into operation.

Demo software to read and write command and visualise measurement in Lab View using the PMX command

This short example considers a simple software demo for the PMX amplifier connected to a PC/ Labtop running LabView from National Instruments.

IEPE / ICP transducer to PMX over an external Smart Module

This is a quickstart guide to connecting an IEPE / ICP transducer to a PMX system via an External Smart Module.

Force/Displacement Measurement with Relative zero point

The force F and displacement s during a stroke movement are measured. To compensate for random offsets in measurands, new, signals F_tared and s_tared are generated without offset.

PMX Event Counter (Trigger)

In this example, the overpassing of a force value should be counted and displayed. Once the count 5 is reached, this should be signaled on a digital output.

Demo software to read and write consitent data via EtherCat with TwinCat and visualise measurement

This short example considers a simple software demo for the PMX amplifier connected to a Beckhoff plc type CX1020.
