HBM is describing its new data acquisition and control system as its sharpest measurement technology. The PMX Modular Amplifier System, designed for use in production control and industrial test benches, already has a reputation as a highly efficient device with strong performance, precision and reliability.
There are many benefits to using the PMX Modular Amplifier System in modern production plants.
- High accuracy: PMX provides precise acquisition of force, torque, vibration, pressure, strain, temperature, voltage, current and more. All channels — 16 measuring and 32 calculating — are rated with 19,200 samples per second, while PMX as a whole is rated up to 400,000 values per second. The system offers the greatest precision for optimal quality assurance thanks to its sampling rate of 19.2kHz.
- Real-time data acquisition: Another major plus of this product is that it supports real-time communication via Industrial Ethernet (EtherCAT and Profinet).
- Scalability: PMX grows with your requirements. It features flexible plug-in cards, and enables users to connect different PMX modules to each other and increase the number of channels — up to 300 measurement channels and up to 600 mathematical calculation channels. For each PMX, up to five plug-in cards can be used for different measurement quantities and communication interfaces.
- Browser-based software: Modern browser-based software in PMX sets new standards in terms of performance capability. Not only is it easy and intuitive for anyone to use, but it also enables quick access to production data. Additional features of the software include a comprehensive library, numerous available drivers and API interfaces for maximum expandability and transparency.
