QuantumX MX1615 – Strain gauge bridge amplifier

QuantumX MX1615Perfect for experimental stress analysis: The MX1615 strain gauge bridge amplifier enables up to 16 sensors or strain gauges (SG) in full-, half- or quarter-bridge configuration to be connected.

Only one module is required to measure all mechanical quantities.

Product Description

The MX1615 strain gauge bridge amplifier offers unrivaled channel density and allows full integration into the modular data acquisition system. All channels support TEDS and, in addition, have been designed for ±10 V voltage signals and Pt100 connection.

MX1615 further distinguishes itself by its 4-, 5- and 6-wire circuit-based patented technology using carrier frequency methods and cyclical auto-adjustment on all channels. All these features make the amplifier particularly rugged and insensitive to electromagnetic and thermal interference resulting from converters, high currents, electric machines or temperature effects. Furthermore, long distances to the measuring point can be covered. Ethernet TCP/IP allows easy integration of MX1615 and usage close to the measuring point to obtain the shortest possible length of sensor lines.

The amplifier is ideally suited for applications in experimental stress analysis. Possible fields of application include:

  • Static load tests for the verification of FEM models
  • Quasi-dynamic fatigue tests for durability analyses
  • Monitoring tasks – combined with the QuantumX CX22W data recorder
  • Material testing and residual stress analysis
  • Road Load Data Acquisition (RLDA)
