Latest industrial amplifier precisely measures torque and angle of rotation

HBM has launched its PX460 plug-in measuring card enabling torque transducers to be fully integrated in its PMX industrial measuring amplifier by giving dynamic and precise measurements of frequency, pulse, speed, angle of rotation and torque.

The PX460 amplifier plug-in card can acquire up to four torque transducers simultaneously with a measuring bandwidth of up to 6 kHz. In addition to torque, encoder signals of up to 2 MHz can be acquired with absolute precision in challenging industrial environments. Real time Ethernet fieldbuses such as Profinet, Ethercat or Industrial Ethernet ensure reliable integration of machine and plant control systems.

The PMX measuring amplifier features Advanced Plug & Measure technology and TEDS that automatically recognises connected transducers. This removes the need to manually enter complex settings minimising delays in actually undertaking measurement tasks. The card helps users reduce time delays while giving greater system stability and avoiding unnecessary errors.

HBM developed the PMX measuring amplifier system to ensure quality assurance and system integration in industrial production and in end-of-line test benches. All production data can be accessed via a password-protected web browser interface using an Internet-capable end device


Founded in Germany in 1950, HBM is today the technology and market leader in the field of test and measurement. HBM’s product range comprises solutions for the entire measurement chain, from virtual to physical testing.
