Signal conditioner for high automation applications

Louise Smyth

New from HBM the ClipX signal conditioner, which is able to simply integrate into existing machines and production systems.

Designed to optimise production processes, ClipX is a dynamic signal conditioner that not only amplifies signals and transfers them to the control unit, without any interference but also completes preliminary calculations and summaries, to reduce the load on higher level controls.  This means that the new ClipX is able to accomplish some of the tasks that would otherwise be taken on by the higher-level controller.

Suitable for monitoring and measuring tasks in test benches, machines and production plants, ClipX can be used as a standalone device or as part of a system of networked devices. Featuring a modern automation interface, which can be easily adapted to suit any measurement task, ClipX can be used to acquire force, torque and other quantities with a measurement accuracy class of 0.01.

Controlled through a web interface, the responsive design ensures optimal viewing across all devices. Clear and intuitive, it comes complete with all the latest functions and is also equipped with an integrated health monitor, which provides device diagnosis and enables faults to be quickly and easily detected and fixed by remote control at an early stage.
