HBM Offers 16-Channel Conditioning Module for Stress Analysis Applications

The QuantumX MX1615 is specifically designed to facilitate the modular data acquisition system connection of up to 16 transducers or SG, including SG bridge amplifiers in quarter-, half-, and full-bridge configurations, with patented Kreuzer four-wire circuits. Only one MX1615 module is required to measure all mechanical parameters, including temperature and voltage.

 

The QuantumX MX1615 is a 16-channel conditioning module that supports quarter-, half-, or full-bridge strain gauge configurations, as well as voltage and PT100 inputs.

The QuantumX MX1615 allows for SG excitation voltages to be user-specified per channel, either as a carrier frequency excitation or DC voltage excitation. This results in a measurement amplifier that is insensitive to the electromagnetic and thermal interferences which commonly result from converters, high currents, electric machinery or temperature variations. In addition, both the amplifier and transducer may be used at considerable distances from desired measurement points, allowing for the driving of long cables. Each channel is equipped with a high-performance 24-bit AD converter; is independently configurable for data rates of up to 19.2 kHz, as well as for filtering parameters; and supports TEDS (per IEEE 1451.4). Such features make the HBM QuantumX MX1615 suitable for use within both static and dynamic systems.

Notes HBM Business Development Manager, Sujit Basu, “The unique large channel density of the QuantumX MX1615 enables engineers to perform extremely high-accuracy bridge-based measurements in virtually any environment with minimal setup time."

As part of a scalable system, the MX1615 may be effectively combined with other QuantumX series modules within a distributed measurement architecture, for example with analog outputs, digital inputs/outputs, CAN bus or EtherCAT connection. Ethernet TCP/IP allows for seamless transfer data to a PC.

All HBM QuantumX MX1615 bridge amplifiers are available with the powerful and easy-to-use catman®AP measurement software for data acquisition, visualization and analysis. A comprehensive offering of additional software packages includes LabVIEW™ driver, .NET and CANape drivers.

QuantumX MX1615 is ideally suited for a variety of experimental stress analysis applications, including static load testing, quasi-static fatigue testing, materials testing and residual stress analysis, as well as Road Load Data Acquisition (RLDA).
