QuantumX by HBM: Working standard calibration included!

Calibrating your amplifier is the best way to ensure correct and traceable test results.

By Using QuantumX, you benefit from the security provided by a working standard calibration right from the start, as every QuantumX device is delivered complete with a valid electronic working calibration certificate.

We guarantee this with a calibration seal on the device.

QuantumX is the first amplifier with its calibration certificate stored in its memory, making it permanently available so it can be loaded at any time required. The amplifier includes software that allows the certificate to be seen and printed in PDF format.

When the amplifier is recalibrated, HBM stores the new certificate in the amplifier’s memory along with all previous calibration certificates. This allows any user to quickly see a particular amplifier’s calibration history at any time.

The QuantumX multifunctional 8-channel amplifier offers a wide range of connection options: Strain gage and inductive transducers can be connected as well as analog voltage and current signals, frequencies, pulses, and temperatures or digital CAN signals.

All relevant quantities including their measured values are specified in the calibration certificate. It thus offers comprehensive documentation of the amplifier's behavior. The standard calibration of the MX840 QuantumX universal amplifier comprises the following test series for all 8 channels:

Total of 5 series each with 14 steps:

Total of 8 series each with 3 steps:

For full bridges with 2.5 V carrier frequency excitation, ±2 mV/V calibration range

4 more combinations of excitation voltage/calibration range for full bridges with carrier frequency excitation

For full bridges with 2.5 V DC excitation, ±100 mV/V calibration range

One more combination of excitation voltage/calibration range for full bridges with DC excitation

For voltage signals, ±10 V calibration range

2 more measuring ranges for voltage signals

For current signals, ±20 mA calibration range

For PT100 resistance thermometers

For PT100 resistance thermometers

The calibration certificate specifies the test values for all relevant quantities, giving extensive documentation of the amplifier’s behavior. Analysis includes computation of the linearity error and, in addition, an OK/NOK evaluation indicating whether the amplifier complies with the manufacturer’s specifications.

All amplifier serial numbers and all references used for calibration are specified to comply with ISO 9001 requirements.

The Working Standard Calibration Certificate: More than just paper

The Working Standard Calibration Certificate is "more than just paper". Through an ok/not ok statement and the graphical display – also available electronically as a PDF file – you can immediately assess the quality of your amplifier. The certificate covers all measurement values and provides you with reliable documentation – and ensures a successful audit.

Increased comfort and safety – with on-site system calibration

The on-site system calibration for QuantumX at your premises saves downtime and money. Thanks to the professional on-site calibration, with the same high quality service as is provided at HBM's head office, your amplifier will be quickly available for measurement.

On-site calibration at your premises is easy:

  • The HBM Service Engineer comes to your premises equipped with the complete, mobile ”calibration tower“.
  • The compact ”calibration tower“ provides the complete test equipment required for calibrating QuantumX.
  • Special HBM calibration software ensures that calibration is implemented to the same standard throughout Europe.

The on-site calibration service is available in following countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom
