Clip - The inexpensive and perfect solution for industrial measurements

Analogue clip-Electronics for industrial applications

The clip-Electronics provide the inexpensive and perfect solution to industrial measurements. It's simply child's play to 'clip-on', modules directly to DIN rails, mounted in a control cabinet. With terminals accessible from the front and the functional diagram shown on each module, the system is extremely user friendly.

The complete flexibility of the system combined with the ease of use, results in the ultimate solution in measurement and control. And if you require a suitable system for operation in an aggressive industrial environment - we can provide - as clipIG system - an inexpensive system, using standard modules mounted in a robust housing sealed to IP65. We can also supply many other configurations on request. Do you have an application? We are ready to help you.

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.
