ClipX – The Precise and Easy-to-Integrate Industrial Signal Conditioner

With an accuracy class of 0.01 and an integrated calibration certificate, the interference-proof signal conditioner ClipX is setting new standards in industrial process control. ClipX adapts to your measurement task, regardless of whether it is used with single- or multiple-channel applications, in manufacturing machines, in test benches or for production monitoring. Owing to the Plug and Play principle, up to six devices can be plugged simultaneously in a modular setup and the measured data can be pre-calculated. Unlike conventional measuring signal conditioners, ClipX does not require a separate head module for direct data processing.

ClipX provides all the latest automation interfaces to perfectly integrate the device into comprehensive control concepts. A particular feature is the intuitive web interface that also enables remote operation, parameterization, and diagnosis.

  • Accuracy class: 0.01
  • Measurement inputs: Full-bridge and half-bridge strain gauges, piezoresistive transducer, potentiometer, Pt100, current, and voltage
  • Interfaces: PROFINET, EtherCAT®,PROFIBUS, Ethernet/IP™*, analog (V/mA,) digital-I/O, and Ethernet (TCP/IP)
  • IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things): Remote diagnosis, Health monitoring and web integration

Precise and interference-proof

  • Fast and digital signal conditioning for force sensors, load cells, torque sensors, pressure transducers, as well as temperature and standardized signals (current/voltage)
  • Guaranteed measurement accuracy, even in harsh industrial environments with electrical interferences
  • Full traceability owing to EN10204-compliant calibration records that are directly stored in the device
  • In combination with the SD01A Zener barrier , sensors can also be operated as intrinsically safe devices in potentially explosive atmospheres, measurement circuit type (Ex II (1) GD, [EEx ia]IIC).

Reliable results and trustworthy acquisition of mechanical and electrical quantities in industrial environments

Faster industrial processes

  • A high sample rate and high bandwidth facilitate for easy use in automation environments
  • Quick setup and diagnosis using the display on the device and the intuitive web interface
  • Full support of TEDS* (Transducer Electronic Data Sheet) 
  • ClipX-bus allows transmission and computation of measured values between up to 6 devices
  • Interfaces: PROFINET, EtherCAT®, PROFIBUS, Ethernet/IP™, analog (V/mA,) digital-I/O, Ethernet (TCP/IP)

Easy setup with integrated web interface, time- and cost-saving remote diagnosis, and automated channel parameterization of the measurement chain (TEDS)

Efficient and profitable

  • Individual system setup and compact design
  • Transmission of measured values in millisecond intervals using the ClipX-bus 
  • Mathematical and technological calculation channels (Smart Functions) allow signal conditioning/analysis and easy parameterization
  • Individually configurable input/output signals and fieldbus interfaces
  • Software dotNET-API* for PC applications

Unbeatable price-to-performance ratio and a future-proof investment because of the open automation standards

Digital and Analog Measurement Chains from a Single Supplier

HBM develops and produces perfectly matched sensors and measurement modules, that, when combined, provide precise and dependable measurement results without system discontinuities. The certification in compliance with ISO9001, ISO14001, and the accredited HBM calibration laboratory (DAkkS) ensures that the quality of the measurement chains is traceable in compliance with ISO 17025.

Download the calibration certificate for your ClipX module here. It goes without saying that all the measurement chains can easily be integrated into overall control systems, owing to cutting-edge digital and analog automation interfaces.

Intuitive Web Interface

ClipX comes with an innovative and intuitive web interface and is immediately operational without any software installation or training.

  • It can be used on all browser-based devices (and also mobile devices)
  • Touchscreen control with three-level user administration
  • Remote maintenance via a company network or the Internet 
  • The web interface can be used on mobile devices using a WiFi router
  • Multilingual user interface with integrated help

Individual System Setup

ClipX allows easy setup of both individual measurement chains and measurement systems with up to 6 quasi-synchronized devices in milliseconds – optionally linked via fieldbus. This enables you to use multiple fieldbuses in the application.

  • Measured values including their status (diagnosis) are transmitted via the ClipX bus
  • No additional head module is required, which reduces costs
  • Direct processing of all signals such as sums, peak values, or controls
  • The multi-client capability enables all interfaces to be used in parallel and in real time
  • Digital inputs and outputs can perform fast control
    and monitoring tasks (e.g. alarms)

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)

ClipX already meets the requirements of the future IIoT.

  • Smart devices owing to Smart Functions (diagnosis and analysis)
  • Non-interacting, parallel operation of the PLC and the service interfaces
  • High upward-compatibility and a future-proof investment
