QuantumX MX1615B – Strain Gauge Bridge Amplifier

The MX1615B strain gauge bridge amplifier is perfect for stress analysis; it allows connecting up to 16 sensors or strain gauges (SG) in full-, half- or quarter-bridge configurations. Only one module is required to measure all mechanical quantities.

QuantumX MX1615B Product Description

The MX1615B bridge amplifier offers unrivaled channel density and supports full integration into the modular data acquisition system. All channels support TEDS; they also have been designed for compatibility with ±10V voltage signals and Pt100 temperature sensor connections.

The MX1615B further distinguishes itself with its 4-, 5- and 6-wire circuit-based patented technology, employing carrier frequency methods and cyclical auto-adjustment on all channels. All these features make the amplifier particularly rugged and insensitive to electromagnetic and thermal interference from converters, high currents, electric motors or temperature effects. Furthermore, the amplifier can support applications involving distant measurement sites. Ethernet TCP/IP allows integration the MX1615B close to the measurement point to obtain the shortest possible sensor lines.

The amplifier is ideally suited for applications in experimental stress analysis.

Application areas for the MX1615B include:

  • Static load tests for the verification of FEM models
  • Quasi-dynamic fatigue tests for durability analyses
  • Monitoring tasks when combined with the QuantumX CX22W data recorder
  • Material testing and residual stress analysis
  • Road Load Data Acquisition (RLDA).

User Benefits

  • High flexibility through individual configuration of universal inputs
  • High accuracy using patented circuits that are insensitive to interference effects
  • Analysis of static and dynamic systems, thanks to individually configurable measurement rates up to 19.2 kHz/channel
  • Low installation costs through short sensor lines - distributed modules
  • Wide ambient temperature range: - 20 to + 65 °C
  • Fast calibration of transducers or validation through internal shunt connection
  • Freely scalable system solution - expandable with all modules from the QuantumX series
  • Powerful and easy-to-use catman AP measurement software for data acquisition, visualization and analysis
  • Comprehensive software package: Includes LabVIEW™ driver, .NET, CANape drivers, web server.

catman Easy / catman AP

catman Easy / AP is the professional tool for measurement engineers and supports parameterization within few seconds using an extensible sensor database. The integrated TEDS editor enables reading and writing of TEDS data on a channel - for real Advanced Plug & Measure. catman Easy / AP facilitates building up of user and visualization levels and features comprehensive analysis options. Graphical parameterization of the start and end conditions for test and measurement tasks is easy. The integrated formula editor allows on-line calculation of virtually any channel - without programming. The measured data can be saved in different formats, for example BIN, RPCIII, MAT, ASCII or XLS for analysis at any time.

QuantumX Assistant

The free QuantumX Assistant provides full access to your QuantumX system. The software ensures easy parameterization of all inputs and outputs. TEDS data can be read or written.
