HBM QuantumX MX403B Amplifier Makes High Voltage Measurements Accurately and Safely
MARLBOROUGH, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
HBM, Inc. (www.hbm.com),
a leading manufacturer of data acquisition systems, analysis and
calibration software, strain gauges, and transducers and sensors, has
introduced a new high voltage data acquisition module, the MX403B. The
MX403B is the only high-voltage measurement module on the market with
the highest resolution capable of making 1,000 V measurements and
capable of acquiring data synchronously at all times to other physical
The MX403B amplifier-the latest member of HBM's QuantumX family-offers
four differential, isolated channels with analog anti-aliasing filters
and a 24-bit AD converter. In addition, users can apply several digital
filters to the acquired data.
The MX403B has three measurement ranges: 10V, 100V, and 1,000V. The
sampling rate is 100 kS/s per channel (200 kS/s in dual-channel mode),
and the signal bandwidth is up to 38 kHz (78 kHz in dual-channel mode).
Accuracy is an industry-leading 0.05%.
"In addition to providing the highest accuracy measurement, the MX403B
is versatile enough to perform high voltage, high power and highly
accurate power factor measurement for AC-based sources and actuators,
such as one or three-phase electric motors in many mechatronics
applications," said Sujit Basu, PhD, HBM Business Development Manager,
Where safety is a concern, the MX403B also leads the industry. It has a
CAT II rating of 1,000 V and a CAT III rating of 600 V. In addition, the
unit meets the requirements of IEC (News - Alert) 61010, which specifies safety
requirements for measuement and control equipment.
With a CMRR of 707 Vrms, the MX403B is perfect for testing mechatronics
systems that include electrical motors and actuators and where
measurements of both DC and AC voltages are required. Other applications
for which the MX403B is a good fit include battery testing (up to 1250V)
and voltage measurements where transients are of concern.
As part of the QuantumX series, the MX403B amplifier can be connected
with all other QuantumX modules, acquiring all kinds of sensors and
transducers synchronously. The MX403B connects to a host computer via
its Ethernet port, and HBM's catman® Easy software makes it
easy to set up channels and perform signal processing, such as power
factor analysis for single- or multiple-phase devices.
