MGCplus & CANHEAD
MGCplus Data Acquisition System
MGCplus: The All-Rounder for Data Acquisition
Whether it is calibration, material, or fatigue testing, the MGCplus data acquisition system has been used in all kinds of applications for more than 25 years.
It acquires data on force, strain, displacement, torque, voltage, current, temperature, and many other parameters.
Owing to this versatility, the MGCplus is one of the most popular data acquisition systems worldwide. This means that it offers proven compatibility, not only within the MGCplus system but also along the entire measurement chain from the sensor to the software.
Due to its cutting-edge architecture, the new MGCplus CP52 communication processor provides many new options and is backward compatible!
Over 25 years of experience in service and support
HBM’s patented three-wire and four-wire circuits to ensure perfect compensation of lead wire resistances

Rack frame or desktop housing for use in control cabinets or laboratories
The right solution: Regardless of what you measure
Communication Processor CP52
The new communication processor CP52 replaces CP22 and CP42 and is backward compatible.
CP52 offers the following new advantages:
Data recording with USB mass storage devices
Two native Ethernet interfaces
Enhanced connectivity through HBM device scan functionality and DHCP
New sync connector (RJ45)
New firmware update mechanism via one-click function in DAQ software (like QuantumX)
