Global test and measurement group HBM has released a new industrial
measuring amplifer, PMX, which is designed to optimise production and testing
“PMX enables rapid integration in complete system and machine concepts
and delivers numerous web-supported operating options,”says Tinh Ngo, sales and
application engineer, HBM Australia.
“Quality assurance and system integration
of measurement technology are important cornerstones in industrial production
and in end-of-line test benches for the success of a product, and PMX has been
developed to provide this.”
It is recommended for use in process control, press-fit monitoring,
monitoring of machines, industrial test benches and end-of-line test stands.
With HBM’s PMX, production data can be access password-protected via a
web browser using an Internet-capable end device. This is intended to provide
an overview of the processes and to ensure maximum security.
In addition, the combination of ethernet technologies and the internet are
said by the company to enable uncomplicated remote maintenance.
“Users can parameterise the system within seconds, using an upgradeable
sensor database in the data acquisition software,” Tinh explains. “Measurements
during start up and for quality control can be immediately visualised and
“In addition, the free driver package enables simple integration within
existing software and therefore within the complete system or machine concept. ”
