HBM has released an improved version of its CMD600-P digital charge amplifier that now features IP65 degree of protection facilitating its use in challenging industrial environments as well as in laboratory applications.

The CMD600-P digital charge amplifier also features an extremely compact design, high function density and can be positioned directly at the measuring point to measure forces or torques in extremely tough and often dirty environments. 

The latest design incorporates secure sealing of unused connections with protective caps so that external influences are reduced to a minimum. The digital inputs/outputs and fast Ethernet interface enables users to easily parameterize the device and monitor it during operation.

The CMD600-P also features integrated peak value detection and limit value monitoring functions enabling control functions to be distributed across decentralized devices relieving pressure on the central control unit. It is also possible for the system to continue operating, monitoring and even remote maintenance while parameter changes, such as changes in measuring range or limit value monitoring, are being implemented.


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. The company has production facilities in Germany, USA and China and is represented in over 80 countries worldwide.
