SomatXR MX460B-R Rugged Impulse & Frequency Measurement Module

Rugged Impulse and Frequency Measurement Module

Do you want to measure torque, rotational speed, angle, position, or displacement in harsh environments? If so, the MX460B-R 4-channel, digital impulse and frequency measurement module that comes in a rugged enclosure and features round plugs is the right solution for you. The MX460B-R is suited for precise acquisition of digital signals in off-road vehicle testing or test bench applications. In addition, the SomatXR MX460B-R also acquires information resulting from pulse width measurements or crank angle sensors to facilitate TDC (Top Dead Center) or angle-based data analysis in combustion engine testing. The module allows torsional vibration analysis and differential angle calculation in real time, due to its ability to forward the results to running test automation and control systems.

Rugged modules are obviously the first choice, particularly in powertrain testing, since vibration, temperature, and leaking liquids must not impact the module and your testing job. The SomatXR MX460B-R, combined with HBM torque sensors, and the use of advanced digital inter- and extrapolation, ensures high-resolution digital torque and rotational speed frequency measurements with highest dynamics of up to 1 MP/s and an output rate of 100 kS/s.
