HBM Launches New DAQ Modules

The devices are suited for operating in harsh environments.

HBM has added three new amplifier modules for its SomatXR Data Acquisition System. These modules are suited for measurements under harsh operating environments, the company states.

The new line of modules include:

  • SomatXR MX1615B-R amplifier, which has 16 individually-configurable inputs for potentiometric sensors, PT 100 temperature sensors or strain gages in full-, half- or quarter-bridge configurations.  It can measure resistance and voltage up to +/- 60V.
  • SomatXR MX1601B-R amplifier provides inputs for measuring standardized voltage, current and IEPE/ICP sensors. Every channel is isolated and has a 24-bit delta-sigma A/D converter. Sample rates are up to 19,200 samples/s per channel. Analog bandwidth is 3kHz.
  • SomatXR MX1609KB-R amplifier offers 16 configurable thermocouple channels with full isolation.
“The SomatXR measuring amplifiers guarantee precise measurement results, even in the harshest environments,” said Finn Lange, product manager at HBM. “They were extensively tested under real-world conditions for this purpose. For example, we even conducted thermal shock tests to validate the modules’ resistance to sudden temperature fluctuations.”
