Only one module needed to measure all mechanical quantities
QuantumX MX1615B: Suitable strain gauge bridge amplifier for experimental stress analysis
The MX1615B strain gauge bridge amplifier is perfect for stress analysis, enabling connections of up to 16 sensors or strain gauges in full-, half-, or quarter-bridge configurations. Only one module is required to measure all mechanical quantities.
The MX1615B bridge amplifier offers unrivaled channel density and supports full integration into the modular data acquisition system. All channels support TEDS, or Transducer Electronic Data Sheet, which offers a plug and play capability with analog sensors. A TEDS module speeds the system configuration process by having the individual characteristics of the sensor, including sensitivity, nominal (rated) force, supply voltage, serial number and transducer type saved to memory when the sensor is delivered.
They also have been designed for compatibility with ±10V voltage signals and Pt100 temperature sensor connections. It further distinguishes itself with its 4-, 5-, and 6-wire circuit-based patented technology, employing carrier frequency methods and cyclical auto-adjustment on all channels.
All these features make the amplifier rugged and insensitive to electromagnetic and thermal interference from converters, high currents, electric motors, or temperature effects. The amplifier also can support applications involving distant measurement sites. Ethernet TCP/IP allows integration of the MX1615B close to the measurement point to obtain the shortest possible sensor lines. The amplifier is ideally suited for applications in experimental stress analysis:
- Static load tests for the verification of FEM models
- Quasi-dynamic fatigue tests for durability analyses
- Monitoring tasks when combined with the QuantumX CX22B-W data recorder
- Material testing and residual stress analysis
- Road Load Data Acquisition (RLDA)
