In the past, measurement technology was often ordered for a specific measurement task. However, the costs of the measurement technology make it an investment good, which should ideally be suitable for different tasks. Since the measuring tasks of metrology engineers are manifold, especially in the rotating area, several different telemetry systems often had to be procured for the most diverse measuring tasks in the past.
Sometimes one channel is sufficient for a standard torque measurement, but often other variables such as strain, pressure, axial force or even temperatures with PT 100 or thermocouples have to be measured later in a measurement task. Instead of 1-4, there are often 8, 12 or even 16 or more measuring channels with different sensor applications. The user-friendliness and connectivity of different sensor types are therefore of decisive importance.
A lengthy evaluation of possible future measurement tasks is in turn time-consuming and difficult to do in advance. Especially in times of Covid-19, budgets are sometimes tight or only small investments are easily possible without a long approval process – here, a flexibly configurable and expandable system offers enormous advantages.
In order to provide our customers with the greatest possible flexibility, our new multi-channel telemetry MasterMind offers flexibly configurable telemetry that can also be expanded retrospectively.
This is a measuring amplifier construction kit – modular, flexible, remotely expandable and freely configurable sensor signal amplifiers.
