The CMD600 charge amplifier measures very fast force, torque and pressure signals at frequencies of up to 30 kHz and can be used with piezoelectric sensors up to max. 600,000 pC (Pico coulombs). The measurement range is freely scaleable and even signals of minimum strength are available at high resolution without quality loss via a second, internal measurement range; the CMD600 is thus eminently suited to measuring very small forces.
The very wide measuring range from 50 to 600,000 pC ensures guaranteed accuracy even in the partial load area. The CMD600 charge amplifier reliably records and evaluates small process values too.
The CMD600 operates reliably with both HBM transducers and data acquisition systems as well as third-party products. The standard 10 V analog signal output guarantees that the amplifier can be operated with virtually all measurement systems. Furthermore, theEthernet interface enables measured values to be transmitted using the streaming method providing up to 1 kHz bandwidth. The CMD600 charge amplifier offers performance features that are significantly superior to third-party charge amplifiers - at the same price.
Of course, the CMD600 charge amplifier offers full TEDS functionality for automatic sensor identification. You save time during installation and the quality of test results is further increased.
The so-called SensorTeach function is particularly useful for adjusting the measurement range. If this function has been activated, the measurement cycle is run through once prior to the actual start of measurement. Then the CMD600 automatically adjusts to the minimum and maximum values determined. The SensorTeach function is particularly suited to very fast processes that do not enable conventional calibration, for example, blow molding of PET or aluminum bottles using compressed air.
Of course, all signal inputs and outputs are electrically isolated to ensure easy integration into electric systems and machines. The CMD600 with its die-cast aluminum enclosure easily copes with harsh ambient conditions often found in manufacturing environments. It is extremely robust and complies with IP65 protection class.
Furthermore, the software included in the scope of supply allows ease of use and parameterization of the amplifier. It automatically identifies equipment connected to the network via TCP/IP, enables the IP address to be set (remote maintenance by Industrial Ethernet) and measured values to be recorded for monitoring and diagnostics.
The Industrial Ethernet interface permits direct transmission of all process monitoring parameters from the machine control to the CMD600 digital charge amplifier. If no computer or machine control with an Ethernet interface are available, the CMD600 can also be parameterized via the digital input. An LED status display enables diagnostics directly on the equipment.
Furthermore, the CMD600 charge amplifier software provides a line recorder. Measured values and measurement curves can conveniently be visualized online. This enables stored process values to be used for subsequent analysis of the machine so as to analyze the production process and further optimize it.
Integrated into the world of automation
CMD600 can be easily integrated into downstream automation systems using the measurement signal output's voltage output that is electrically isolated from the mains (+/-10 V). The signal can be used either for transmitting the actual measured value or peak values.
The Ethernet interface enables the CMD600 charge amplifier to be used in networks through to remote diagnostics. In addition, CMD600 is suitable for operation in controls used in production.
HBM provides software modules and programming examples needed for easy implementation in Simatic-Step7.
Integration into applications programmed under LabView is easily achieved - thanks to theCMD600 LabView driver and the examples available from the system CD included in the scope of supply and from the download area.
In addition to the industrial amplifiers HBM provides the appropriate ePLAN macros. They allow easy and error-free integration of the instruments in the project planning of the automation environment.
ePLAN Electric P8 is an engineering tool for modern CAE softwaresupported by a database and facilitates consistent project planning, documentation and administration of automation systems. ePLAN macros enable users to easily integrate the process controllers in their project planning. Parts data, drawings and pin assignments are available in ePLAN Electric P8 immediately after import of the macros.
The free macros are available on the documentation CD included in the process controllers' scope of supply and can also be downloadedhere.
