Measuring torque, rotational speed, angle, position, displacement in harsh environments

HBM announces the arrival of its new MX460B-R digital measurement module, which is the latest addition to its rugged and flexible SomatXR Data Acquisition System.

Suitable for measuring torque, rotational speed, angle, position, or displacement in harsh environments, the MX460B-R is a 4-channel, digital impulse and frequency measurement module which is suitable for precise acquisition of digital signals in a range of mobile applications such as vehicle testing and test benches.



Also able to acquire information resulting from pulse width measurements or crank angle sensors to facilitate TDC (Tope Dead Centre) or angle-based data analysis in combustion testing, the latest module allows torsional vibration analysis and differential angle calculation in real time.

Designed specifically for use in harsh environments, the MX460B-R module can be operated in a wide temperature range of -40°C to +80°C.  Encased in a robust design, which is highly resistant to shock and vibration, the MX460B-R is also IP65 and IP67 protection rated.

The SomatXR data acquisition system from HBM facilitates use in harsh environments.

Protected from humidity, dust, shock and vibration

Extremely reliable, precise and protected from humidity, dust, shock and vibration, the modular system is well suited to be used in a variety of applications such as vehicle testing, stationary measurements and structural health monitoring.

Offering a flexible solution, SomatXR modules can also be used in combination with other data acquisition systems to create an individual and modular solution.

The modules can then communicate via Ethernet TCP/IP and are synchronised using IEEE 1588 (PTPv2).
