HBM expands application range of rugged data acquisition system
HBM Test and Measurement (HBM) has added three more modules to the rugged SomatXR data acquisition system, extending the range of applications. In addition to one measuring amplifier with eight channels for universal application and one for highly dynamic measurements, a module is available for CAN bus connection.
The rugged SomatXR data acquisition system is designed especially for road tests with construction, agricultural and mining machines and for summer and winter tests with road vehicles.
HBM has developed the new MX840B-R universal amplifier especially for varying measurement tasks that require the use of different transducers. The measuring amplifier has eight channels for connecting over 16 different transducer technologies.
With four channels and a data rate of up to 100 kS/s per channel, SomatXR MX411B-R is ideally suited for highly dynamic measurement tasks such as vibration measurements and impact tests in which measurement data for dynamic processes must be acquired precisely.
The new SomatXR MX471B-R module can be used to connect the data acquisition system to a CAN network. Four individually configurable interfaces receive CAN, SAE J1913, CCP or xCP-on-CAN data. In addition, analog measured values recorded with other SomatXR amplifiers can be sent to the CAN bus. With the three new products, the SomatXR system now already has six modules.
