For dynamic weighing technology applications in harsh ambient conditions, HBM Test and Measurement (HBM) introduces PAD digital transducer electronics.
Dynamic filling and metering applications under harsh conditions place great demands on weighing components. Now HBM has introduced digital transducer electronics (PAD series) to the market for process control of these applications. The PAD series has a rust-proof stainless steel enclosure and reaches an IP rating of up to IP68/IP69K. It reliably digitizes signals of analog load cells or force transducers, even under the most difficult ambient conditions.
Other demanding process applications with sensors based on strain gauge technology can be implemented with the PAD series. The entire series is approved for use in legal for trade applications.
Depending on customer requirements, variants are also available with a pre-wired sensor connection cable (optionally as an aseptic version) or a plug/plug variant, which ensures the greatest possible flexibility for load cells or force transducers.
The PAD series offers integrated measurement signal conditioning, including a selectable or automatic filter and two integrated digital I/O interfaces. Depending on the need, the PAD series can be configured via RS485 or CANOpen interfaces, which also allows for analysis and remote access in networks.
