PMX Data Acquisition and Control System For Test Benches and Production

PMX is an accurate, reliable and flexible measurement instrument ideally suited to process high data volumes for multi-channel applications. The acquired data is processed and issued through industrial Ethernet interfaces. An easy-to-use web interface is provided via the TCP/IP interface for diagnosis and setup. Smaller automation tasks can be implemented directly via the internal Soft PLC in accordance with IEC-61131. 

  • 2-16 channels per module (individually extendable)
  • Accuracy class of 0.05 with an integrated calibration certificate
  • Interfaces: Profinet, EtherCAT, Ethernet IP, TCP/IP
  • IoT-ready (Internet of Things): applications such as remote diagnosis and web integration

Precise

  • All of the measurement data can be traced via the calibration protocol saved directly in the device (in accordance with EN10204)
  • Continuous digital signal conditioning for force, pressure, displacement, and temperature transducers, as well as torque sensors, angle of rotation, encoder, and standard signals
  • High bandwidth and sample rate for industrial Ethernet interfaces.
