Universal Amplifier Supports 15 Transducer Types

HBM's MX440A is a four-channel universal amplifier that supports up to 15 different transducer types per channel. All four channels can all be individually configured and can be used for measuring a wide range of mechanical, thermal or electrical quantities such as force, displacement, torque, temperature, pressure, rotational speed, position, speed, acceleration, voltage or current.

The amplifier supports, for example, half- and full-bridge circuits (strain-gage and inductive transducers), resistors, piezo-resistive transducers, potentiometers, voltage, current, thermocouples, LVDT, pulse counters and rotary encoders. The input channels are electrically isolated and each provides one 24-bit analogue-to-digital converter. Ethernet TCP/IP and automatic configuration allow for easy and fast connection to the PC. The MX440A is suitable for a wide range of applications including automated testing of system components and the testing or long-term monitoring of tunnels. The amplifier is designed to complement the QuantumX amplifier system.

Features include Advanced Plug and Measure (APM) enabling TEDS transducers and sensors to automatically configure the channel. This minimises set-up times in daily operation and increases efficiency and reliability. The MX440A is supported by a software package that ranges from the free QuantumX-Assistant through to libraries for integration into Labview or into programming environments such as Visual Studio .Net and the professional CatmanAP software package.
