HBM – a market leader in the field of test and measurement – is pleased to introduce its new CP52 Communication Processor (CP), which has been exclusively designed for use with the widely acclaimed MGCplus Data Acquisition System. 

Successor to the CP22 and CP42, the updated CP52 which features built in intelligence, comes with a variety of flexible functions which offers users added value, such as two native interfaces.  This enables users to utlise one of the interfaces for data acquisition and the other to drive the control system, for example, by a User Datagram Protocol (UDP).

Featuring improved connectivity and flexibility, further improvements to the update also mean that 512 measurement channels can now be connected to the CP52, as opposed to the previous maximum, which were only 256.  Measurement data can also be recorded on a standard USB stick for additional data security.

The new CP52, which features synchronisation based on the Precision Time Protocol (PTP), also means that no matter what amplifier is used in the same measurement project, with the MGCplus, all are perfectly synchronised.

The MGCplus from HBM is a scalable and configurable data acquisition system for laboratory and test stand use which can be used to acquire data on force, strain, displacement, torque, voltage, current, temperature and many other parameters.
