Machinedesign 6568 Hbm Px460 Amplifier P 0

Amplifier measures torque and angle with no programming

Aug. 26, 2014
The PX460 industrial measurement amplifier lets users precisely measure raw and filtered torque, frequency, pulse, speed, and angle of rotation.
The PX460 industrial measurement amplifier lets users precisely measure raw and filtered torque, frequency, pulse, speed, and angle of rotation. When used with the company’s Advanced Plug & Measure technology and Transducer Electronic Data Sheet platform, users simply connect torque sensors to the PX460 amplifier with no programming necessary.

The amplifier is a plug-in module for the HBM PMX data-acquisition and control system. It acquires up to four channels of data from torque transducers simultaneously with an analog bandwidth up to 6 kHz. The PX460 also acquires encoder signals up to 2 MHz with absolute precision. The amplifier interfaces with most reaction arm-based dynamometers.

Available measurement modes include:

  • Four torque flanges (T10, T12, T40) for torque or rotational speed measurement (without detection of the direction of rotation).
  • Two measurement channels for simultaneous measurement, for rotational speed and angle of rotation (with detection of the direction of rotation).
  • One measurement channel for simultaneous measurement, for rotational speed and angle of rotation or reference signal recognition.
  • Two angular/incremental encoders each, SSI, PWM sensors, magnetic transducers or pulse counters.
  • Four measurement channels for frequency measurement up to 2 MHz.
