HBM PX460 Industrial Amplifier Measures Torque and Angle with No Programming

HBM, Inc. (www.hbm.com),
a leading manufacturer of data acquisition systems, analysis and
calibration software, strain gauges, and transducers and sensors, has
introduced a new industrial measurement amplifier that enables users to
make precise, dynamic measurements of raw and filtered torque,
frequency, pulse, speed, and angle of rotation. It is the only amplifier
that allows users to make accurate, position-based torque measurements
that can be used directly by dynamometers and industrial control systems.
The combination of the new PX460 hardware with HBM’s APM (Advanced Plug
& Measure) technology and Transducer Electronic Data Sheet (TEDS)
platform for sensor integration means that now users can simply just
connect torque sensors to the PX460 amplifier and get started right away
with no programming.
The PX460 amplifier is a plug-in module for the HBM PMX data acquisition
and control system. It can acquire up to four channels of data from
torque transducers simultaneously with an analog bandwidth of up to 6
kHz. In addition to powering the torque transducer directly, the PX460
can also acquire encoder signals of up to 2 MHz with absolute precision
in rough industrial environments. The PX460 interfaces with most
reaction arm-based dynamometers, providing them with filtered and smooth
torque updates in real time at the desired control loop rate of the
Available measurement modes include:
Up to four torque flanges (T10, T12, T40) for torque or rotational
speed measurement (without detection of the direction of rotation).
Two measurement channels for simultaneous measurement, for rotational
speed and angle of rotation (with detection of the direction of
One measurement channel for simultaneous measurement, for rotational
speed and angle of rotation or reference signal recognition.
Two angular/incremental encoders each, SSI, PWM sensors, magnetic
transducers or pulse counters.
Four measurement channels for frequency measurement up to 2 MHz.
“Combining our PMX industrial amplifier with our advanced torque
transducers is a powerful offering for customers, meaning they no longer
have to choose between measurement performance and plug-and-play
simplicity,” said HBM’s Michael Guckes, Product and Application Manager
for Industrial Amplifiers.
Using an on-board, position-based CASMA filter, the PX460 smooths the
torque measurements so that they can be fed directly into a dynamometer
or machine control system using real time fieldbuses, such as Profinet®,
Ethercat®, Ethernet IP®, or by using an analog
HBM’s PMX data acquisition and control system is a web-based system that
uses APM technology, as well as its TEDS platform for easy sensor
integration. The PMX system automatically recognizes sensors that are
connected to the system and enters the correct settings for those
sensors, so that it can begin making measurements immediately. As a
result, users spend less time setting up the system, the system is more
stable, and there are fewer sources of measurement error.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
