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.

PMX - new control system combines high-quality measuring and testing technology in mechatronic systems
Read in this article from HBM and learn more about the requirements for mechatronic systems and the applied smart measurement technology.
Torque measurement plays an important role in engine test benches. Read this technical article describing how to implement efficient control and automation, in addition to maximum accuracy and speed.
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.
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.
In this example, the overpassing of an angle initiates an output signal if the force is in between specific limits.
During a stroke movement with measurement of force and displacement, the force is continuously checked against a tolerance band.
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.
Read this article to learn how to take the mean of a noisy torque signal with the use of a special filter.
