PACEline CMA charge amplifier: Reliable transmission of data

The PACEline CMA charge amplifier transfers the many benefits of TEDS technology to the world of piezoelectric force measurement for the first time. TEDS is the Transducer Electronic Data Sheet - and enables automatic sensor identification providing many benefits for more efficiency and reliability of measurement processes. Which means: TEDS relieves you from complex parameterization of all individual components of the measurement chain prior to measurement.

Another PACEline CMA benefit is the availability of two calibrated measuring ranges amounting to 100% and 20% of the nominal (rated) force. The second measuring range opens up a "zoom on your production". You can check overload-critical sections at high resolution like looking through a magnifying glass. Extra comfort and significance which normally is only available with strain gage technology-based transducers. PACEline CMA is furthermore optionally available with two measurement inputs to allow cost-efficient summation of two measurement signals.

The workmanship of PACEline CMA is top class as well: Thanks to electrically isolated inputs and electrical isolation from mains between measurement signal and supply voltage the charge amplifier meets the demanding requirements of adverse industrial environments.

The CMA charge amplifier is part of the complete "PACEline" piezoelectric force measurement chain which, due to the perfect matching of transducers and charge amplifier, ensures both reliable test results and minimal set-up times.

Benefit from high resolution resulting from a wide measuring range.

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.
