An upgraded version of HBM's multifunctional MGCplus amplifier system is being launched that provides fast set-up and more reliable data acquisition.
The system features the new AP402i four-channel connection board for measuring electrical signals from +/-1 to +/-60V and +/-20mA. Up to 64 channels can be connected for simultaneous measurement in a single housing.
IEEE 1451.4-compliant TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheet) transducer identification enables input channels to be configured within seconds for more reliable data acquisition. All types of active transducer with voltage or current output are easily connected using the six-pin Lemo plugs; external transducer electronics can be powered through the connection board.
High input impedances ensure measurements are non-reactive by isolating each measurement input from mains supplies up to 500V.
