Many test and measurement tasks require measured physical parameters to be output as a standardized voltage. For these applications, HBM released the MX878 output module – a new module of the flexible and powerful QuantumX data acquisition system.
The output module has eight analog voltage outputs that can be individually configured. The module enables system signals to be output as scaled and filtered values in the range of ±10 V. All signals supplied by the amplifiers can be used as signal sources. This makes individual monitoring or forwarding of system signals such as measured values very easy.
In addition, the module offers integrated local intelligence that enables measured values to be analyzed or set off against each other in real time using algebraic operations. The module also features functions for the computation of peak value or root mean square value. Computed signals can be made available in the system in real time or the can be output directly.
The functions or outputs can be configured directly using QuantumX Assistant software, LabView® VIs or the user’s individual programs via the integrated QuantumX programming interface (API) for .NET or COM. catmanAP software provides comprehensive options for configuration, data acquisition, visualization and analysis.
Typical fields of application of the new MX878 QuantumX module include for example test bench applications involving conversion of various transducer signals.
