For great data-acquisition and control systems, the name that many businesses across Canada trust is HBM Test and Measurement. For example, HBM makes the innovative PMX modular amplifier system, available in Canada from Durham Instruments. This device for test benches and production offers accurate, reliable, and flexible measurement for processing high data volumes in multi-channel applications, then issuing the acquired data through industrial Ethernet interfaces.
An easy-to-use web interface
The PMX system comes with an easy-to-use web interface via the TCP/IP interface for diagnosis and setup. Users can implement smaller automation tasks directly via the internal SoftPLC in accordance with IEC-61131. Among the many features of this modular amplifier system:
- Two to 16 channels per module, individually extendable;
- Accuracy class of 0.05, with an integrated calibration certificate;
- Profinet, EtherCAT, and Ethernet IP interfaces as well as TCP/IP;
- Compatibility with Internet of Things, for applications like remote diagnosis and web integration;
- Many plug-in cards for data acquisition and interface connection available;
- Software drivers for API, LabVIEW, and DIAdem; and
- Free download of ePlan macro files.
The PMX modular amplifier system offers three main categories of benefits: it is precise, modular, and user-friendly. As for precision, users can trace all measurement data through the calibration protocol saved directly in the device. It has continuous digital signal conditioning for force, pressure, displacement, and temperature transducers, plus torque sensors, angle of rotation, encoder, and standard signals. It also has a high bandwidth and sample rate for Ethernet interfaces.
Users can equip these devices individually to suit their required measured variables and interfaces, and using several modules offers automatic synchronization and simple connection per cable. Operation is easy with start-up and diagnosis via web interface, optionally integrated SoftPLC, computed channels for processing and analyzing signals that are easy to parameterize, and support of automatic sensor detection via TEDS.
The PMX is suitable for many areas of application. Durham Instruments recommends the device for use in a wide range of industries, ranging from aerospace and food processing to the military, power, and transportation.
