QuantumX MX430B: Precision and Maximum Interference Suppression

MX430B is the precise and compact module of the QuantumX family. It provides four inputs for accurate measurement of strain gauge full bridge based sensors such as uni- or multiaxial force sensors, torque transducers as well as pressure sensors. HBM provides the entire measurement chain for efficient measurement: precise sensors, the QuantumX MX430B measurement module and suitable software.

Precise force and torque measurement is essential, in particular when the objective is to determine the exact balance in aerodynamic tests of vehicles, aircraft or sports equipment in the wind tunnel. MX430B is also well suited for other test bench applications demanding high precision and reliability such as the determination of the center of gravity of rockets, measurement analysis of fuselage or load analysis in engine test benches. The module is lightweight and compact and thus allows for portable use for servicing in machine and sensor calibration.


  • 4 strain gauge full bridge inputs offer a minimum accuracy of 100 ppm
  • Precision with repetitive and long-term measurements
  • Withstands interferences such as electromagnetic radiation or temperature thanks to carrier frequency analysis
  • Working standard calibration certificate according to ISO 10012 stored in the module
  • DAkkS certificate (ISO 17025) from HBM on request

Particularly well suited for test bench applicationsdemanding high precision and reliability such as aerodynamic analyses in the wind tunnel


  • Precise validation of quantities such as force, torque and pressure
  • For static and dynamic measurements
  • Distributable, therefore requiring minimal wiring effort
  • Flexible parameterization, through use of every channel in either AC or DC mode

Enhanced long-term stability through patented background calibration 

Easy Integration

  • Allows for portable use for servicing in machine and sensor calibration
  • TEDS support enables sensors to be quickly and reliably replaced
  • Real-time integration thanks to directly scalable voltage outputs (+/- 10 V) with optional filter, EtherCAT (CX27B), CAN (MX471B)
  • Reliable catman software support

Efficient and dynamic system analysis with full bandwidth
