PMX Modular Amplifier System

PMX Data Acquisition and Control System For Test Benches and Production

PMX is an accurate, reliable and flexible measurement instrument ideally suited to process high data volumes for multi-channel applications. The acquired data is processed and issued through industrial Ethernet interfaces. An easy-to-use web interface is provided via the TCP/IP interface for diagnosis and setup. Smaller automation tasks can be implemented directly via the internal Soft PLC in accordance with IEC-61131.

  • 2-16 channels per module (individually extendable)
  • Accuracy class of 0.05 with an integrated calibration certificate
  • Interfaces: Profinet, EtherCAT, Ethernet IP, TCP/IP
  • IoT-ready (Internet of Things): applications such as remote diagnosis and web integration

Precise

  • All of the measurement data can be traced via the calibration protocol saved directly in the device (in accordance with EN10204)
  • Continuous digital signal conditioning for force, pressure, displacement, and temperature transducers, as well as torque sensors, angle of rotation, encoder, and standard signals
  • High bandwidth and sample rate for industrial Ethernet interfaces.

Safe, verifiable and trustworthy measurement data. Reliable data acquisition of mechanical and electrical variables.

Modular

  • Equipped individually according to the measured variables and interfaces you require
  • When using several PMX modules: automatic synchronization, simple connection per cable
  • LabVIEW/DIAdem driver and API available

Individually arranged and easy to integrate in software test bench: PMX is perfectly suited to your area of application.

Easy to operate

  • Start-up and diagnosis via web interface (WEB-GUI)
  • Optionally integrated SoftPLC according to IEC-61131
  • Supports automatic sensor detection via TEDS
  • Computed channels for processing and analyzing signals are easy to parameterize

A high-quality data acquisition system that is as easy to operate as a modern smartphone: start-up, remote diagnosis, parameterization of the entire measurement chain – it can all be conducted via simply designed browser interfaces.
