catman makes your measurement projects a success

Easy and intuitive data analysis: With its intuitive interface and adaptability, catman data acquisition software will help you streamline your measurement projects. It has never been so easy!

Never miss an event again with HBM Push

Get the new App HBM Push on your mobile device and never miss an important event again. For long-term monitoring of any kind, especially the monitoring of bridges, railways or test benches etc., you can define events of your interest in catman. Whenever one of these events occurs, you’ll get a HBM Push message.

A Valuable Tool for Any Application

Mobile DAQ

  • Acquire vehicle bus and analog measured data in parallel and synchronously
  • Integrate GPS, wheel force sensor and video data
  • Assign events by date and place to video, data stream and map
  • Perform online data counting using rainflow and time-at-level
  • Acquisition, display and analysis of CAN raw data
  • Support of CCP/XCP communication

Durability Testing

  • Reduce data through cyclic memory module, cycle counter, range pair counting and Rainflow analysis
  • Peak valley detection
  • Strain gauge rosette calculation
  • In particular for large structures (with up to 20,000 channels)
