"Ten years ago, measurement electronics had only limited flexibility, was unwieldy and expensive. At the time, HBM had a data acquisition system in its product line, MGCplus, which is still the standard today for measuring devices with local operation. Simply look on the internet for MGCplus – it is synonymous with measurement technology.
An astonishing number of HBM patents are associated with this system. But it also has its limits and it was time to push beyond them. A new, additional measurement system was needed to meet customer requirements that were technologically feasible despite customers not yet even being aware of them. It was to be a great step forward and it should have the character of a flexible tool. Thus, we introduced the QuantumX, calling it the Swiss army knife of measurement technology throughout its launch into the market. After 10 years, QuantumX has developed into much more than that."
