SomatXR MX1615B-R Bridge Amplifier

SomatXR MX1615B-R Bridge Amplifier

For experimental stress analysis

The MX1615B-R is ideal for measurement of strain gauges, but it also offers the ability to measure voltages, and more. Input types include:

  • ¼, ½, and full bridge strain gauges of 120 or 350 ohm
  • Voltage signals (± 60 V)
  • Potentiometric transducers
  • PT100 temperature sensor connections

The MX1615B-R further distinguishes itself with its 4-, 5-, and 6-wire circuit-based patented technology, employing carrier frequency methods and cyclical auto-adjustment on all channels. All these features make the amplifier particularly rugged and insensitive to electromagnetic and thermal interference from converters, high currents, electric motors, or temperature effects.

The different interfaces allow easy integration of the MX1615B-R close to the measuring point to obtain the shortest possible sensor lines.

Typical fields of application include:

Mobile measurements and tests in Off-Highway Vehicles (construction, agriculture and forestry)
Stationary measurements and tests on buildings (structural monitoring)
Field tests (automotive and aerospace applications)

Your benefits

Reliable measurement results even in harsh environments
Distributed system reduces wiring effort
Digitization close to the sensor results in higher measurement quality

Flexible, modular and expandable

SomatXR modules can also be operated in combination with other data acquisition systems (e.g. QuantumX). An individual data acquisition system, scaled to the respective requirements, can be easily set up. Ethernet TCP/IP IEEE 1588 (PTPv2 synchronization) is available as communication interface.

Professional software support

SomatXR users benefit from a powerful software package. catman measurement software and many other tools offer ideal options for processing your measurement data. This makes sure that they can be easily acquired, clearly visualized and smartly analyzed.
