DAQ in harsh environments

23 November 2015

HBM has developed three new modules which are said to make its SomatXR data acquisition system more powerful and flexible.

The SomatXR data acquisition system provides a web interface for simple operation without any software installation, which allows for convenient channel parameterisation, monitoring of measurement jobs and visualisation of measured data far away from the measurement point.

Specifically developed for use in harsh environments, the latest additions to the HBM range includes the MX840B-R and SomatXR MX411B-R amplifiers and the SomatXR MX471B-R CAN module.

The MX840B-R is a universal amplifier, which offers eight channels for connecting over 16 different transducer technologies, making it a good solution for various measurement tasks that require the use of many different transducers.

With four channels and a data rate of up to 100 kS/sec per channel, SomatXR MX411B-R is said to be suited to highly dynamic measurement tasks, such as vibration measurements and impact tests, which requires precise measurement.

Also available to add to the measurement chain is the SomatXR MX471B-R CAN bus module, a robust module which can be used to record mechanical quantities and also digital vehicle data.  Four individually configurable interfaces can receive CAN data. The module also supports reading of CCP or xCP-on-CAN messages and offers the option of using CAN messages as triggers for measurement recordings. In addition, the module provides gateway functionality and can send sensor signals acquired with other SomatXR modules as CAN messages.

The new additions offer flexible, modular and expandable properties and can be used in combination with other data acquisition systems from the company.
