Rugged data acquisition system extended

21 April 2015

Test and measurement company, HBM has introduced the CX23-R data recorder and the EX23-R Ethernet switch, designed to make its data acquisition system more powerful and flexible.

The Somat XR range has been designed for agricultural and mining machines, summer and winter tests of road vehicles and for calculating measurements during road tests of construction.

The SomatXR CX23-R data, with web interface, provides direct access to measurement data without any software installation.  This allows channel parameterisation, motoring of measurement tasks and visualisation of measured data to be conveniently and easily accessed off site.

The new Ethernet switch features 10GB Ethernet ports for connecting the data acquisition system measurement modules and other accessories, five of which are able to supply electrical power to external devices with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE).  It also supports the Precision Time Protocol (PTPv2), as defined by the IEEE-1588 standard, giving it an accuracy of less than one microsecond.

Both the data recorder and the Ethernet switch are protected to IP65/IP67, so are both dustproof, protected against low-pressure water jets, and can be immersed in water up to 1m.  In addition, they can both operate at temperatures of between -40°C and +80°C and meet the vibration test requirements of the MIL-STD-202G defence standard.
