Safety instructions
Use in accordance with the regulations
The amplifier system is to be used exclusively for measurement tasks and directly related control tasks. Use for any
purpose other than the above shall be deemed to be not in accordance with the regulations.
To ensure safe operation, the device may only be operated in accordance with the information given in the Operating Manual. It is also essential to comply with the legal and safety requirements for the application concerned during use. The same applies to the use of accessories.
General dangers due to non-observance of the safety instructions
The amplifier system is a state-of−the-art device and is fail-safe. The device may give rise to further dangers if it is
inappropriately installed and operated by untrained personnel.
Any person instructed to carry out installation, commissioning, maintenance or repair of the device must have read
and understood the Operating Manual and in particular the technical safety instructions.
Remaining dangers
The scope of supply and list of components provided with the amplifier system cover only part of the scope of measurement technique. In addition, equipment planners, installers and operators should plan, implement and respond
to the safety engineering considerations of measurement technique in such a way as to minimise remaining dangers. Prevailing regulations must be complied with at all times. There must be reference to the remaining dangers
connected with measurement technique.
After setting up and password protected activities, care must be taken to ensure that any control units that may be
connected remain in a safe and secure state until the switching behaviour of the amplifier system has been
checked.

Safety requirements
Before commissioning, find out whether the mains voltage and current type specified on the identification plate
match the mains voltage and current type at the place of use, and whether the circuit being used is adequately protected.
Insert the mains plug only into a socket with a protection switch (Protection Class I). When connecting electrical
devices to low voltage: connect to separated extra−low voltage (SELV) only (safety transformer in accordance with
DINVDE 0551 / EN60742).
Use only the mains cable supplied, which has been provided with a ferrite core.
Before you open the device, make sure it is switched off; remove the mains plug from the socket.
Never pull the mains plug from the socket by the mains cable.
Do not operate the device, if the mains cable is damaged.
If an amplifier channel is to be withdrawn, close off the plug-in unit with a blank plate.
Built-in devices must only ever be operated whilst they are within the housing provided for them.
The device complies with the safety requirements of DIN EN 61010-Part 1 (VDE 0411-Part 1); Protection Class I.
To ensure adequate immunity from interference, use only Greenline shielded ducting (see HBM offprint ”Greenline
shielding design, EMC-compliant measuring cable; G36.35.0”)
The port connections (50V) must have an insulating strength of at least 350V(AC).

Introduction Ý System description
System description
The MGCplus system is modular in construction. Depending on the enclosure variant concerned, up to 16 slots are
available for one-channel and multi-channel amplifier plug-in modules. This means that up to 128 measuring points
can be measured in one MGCplus.
Each amplifier plug-in module operates in standalone mode through the internal CPU. Data conditioning, such as
taring, filtering and measuring range adjustment, is carried out in digital form. The disadvantages of analogue conditioning, such as time and temperature related drift, errors due to component tolerances, limited flexibility and high
circuit complexity, can no longer arise. The prerequisite for this, however, is analogue-digital conversion free of information loss. The digitally conditioned signal is fed to the internal high-speed bus.
In the case of one-channel measurement modules, two analogue outputs (voltage or current) are available in addition to the digital measured values.
A credit-card format standard internal PC collects the data with a total sampling rate of up to 300 000 values per
second. All measurement signals can be captured in parallel, since each channel has its own A/D converter. No
Sample & Hold or multiplexer is used in the MGCplus. This ensures continuous digital filtering and highest possible
signal stability.
Using interfaces like Ethernet or USB, data is sent to an external computer or PLC.

Modules in the MGCsplit system
The MGCsplit system is based on the components of the MGCplus measurement system and housed in robust
enclosures (protection class IP 40 or IP 65). The system makes it possible to build up a decentralized
measurement system from individual modules. Each enclosure has room for an amplifier module and a maximum
of two connector plates. The following module types are available, depending on the particular function required:
D
Measurement modules with one MLxx amplifier module and max. two connector plates
D
Processor modules with one communication processor
D Power pack module with power pack and CAN input
The modules are networked together using split-line connection cable and optionally may also be networked with
the MGCplus system via the AP20 connector plate.
Fig.7.1:
MGCsplit measuring amplifier system
Note
When the line length exceeds 10m or the total number of modules exceeds 8, we recommend the use of a
Link terminating resistor (1−MGCsplit Term) for linking the MGCsplit modules.

Processor modules 1−SH400CP
The CP22 and CP42 communication processors in the 1−SH400 enclosure handle the communication between
modules. They have the usual PC interfaces (RS232, USB, Ethernet) and ensure rapid synchronization with other
MGCplus systems. The CP42 communication processor can also accept a PC card which enables data to be
recorded without a PC.

If the measurement system consists of more than four modules, the LINK LED is darker due
to the increased data load from all the modules. If a link signal fault is suspected, the
modules should be tested individually.
ERROR
If a measurement module is removed while the system is operating, the series-connected
module detects this and its ERROR LED flashes red at approx. 1 Hz.
Once the system is restarted the error status is reset.

Restart errors can occur if the supply voltage is quickly turned off and on again.
After switching off the supply voltage it is best to wait about 2 seconds before turning it on
again.
”No address received” is displayed if the cabling is faulty, e.g. if line in (IN) and line out
(OUT) have become switched.
To remedy this, reconnect the cabling correctly and restart the system.
When more than 16 measurement modules are connected, the measurement module
displays at address 16 the error ”More than 16 channels present” and the following modules
show ”No address received”. These measurement modules are ignored by the
communication processor.

The module addresses result from the cabling of the measurement system. The
measurement module which has its split-line input (IN) connected to the split-line output
(OUT) on the processor module receives address 1. The next module, which is connected to
the output (OUT) of module 1, receives address 2, and so on. This gives continuous address
numbering without gaps.
In the event that MGCsplit modules are incorporated into an MGCplus system via the AP20
connector plate, the first MGCsplit measurement module receives the address of the AP20
slot (e.g. with an AP20 in slots 3 and 4, the measurement module receives address 3).

Connecting to MGCplus systems
Split-line connecting cable can also be used to connect the 1−SH400 and 1−SH650 measurement modules to
MGCplus systems. An AP20 connector plate is needed for this. A processor module is not necessary, since
communication is carried out by the processor on the MGCplus system.

Installing an AP20 connector plate
The AP20 connector plate is installed in the MGCplus instrument directly alongside the existing connector plates.
The remaining slots (to the right of the AP20 in Fig.7.6) must be kept free. The unoccupied channels in the
MGCplus (up to channel 16) are available to the MGCsplit system.
In the case of amplifier modules that do not need connector plates (e.g. the ML77B), the backing connector plate
slot must be kept free just the same (see Fig.7.7).

So far, the customary HBM shielding connection has used a male
connector to connect the shield.
This solution provides only limited EMC protection and should no longer
be used.

HBM has developed the Greenline shielding design as an effective
means of improving EMC protection against electromagnetic
interference. The cable shielding is formed in such a way that the whole
of the measurement chain is completely enclosed in a Faraday cage.

If you are connecting a transducer with 4-wire cable, you must connect
the sensor circuit to the appropriate bridge excitation circuit in the
transducer male connector (sensor circuit (−) to excitation voltage (−)
and sensor circuit (+) to excitation voltage (+))*). Any cable extension
must only ever be carried out in six-wire connection.

MGCplus with AB22A/AB32
For cable lengths >50 m, one resistor with half the bridge resistance value (BR/2)
must be wired into the transducer in place of each feedback bridge. If the
transducers are calibrated in six-wire connection, the resistors must be wired directly
into the sensor circuit.

Advice for connection boards AP08, AP18i, AP418i:
If the transducer connection cable is used outside of closed rooms or if the transducer connection cable is longer
than 30 m, then this cable must be protected against high voltage with an additional, separately grounded shield.
This can be achieved laying the cable in a metallic pipe or by using double shielded cables, where the external
shield near by the connection board must be grounded (connect to ground or ground wire). For this purpose
HBM recommend to use Triaxial cables.

CAUTION
Only original split-line connecting cable that has been made up and tested by HBM must be used for
cabling MGCsplit systems.
If other cable is used it will be impossible to guarantee error-free operation and we accept no responsibility

Power supply units NT650/NT651
1−NT650
ATTENTION
The power supply units have fine-wire fuses. The fuses may only
be replaced by the manufacturer’s service personnel.
Connecting the power supply
The power supply units NT650/NT651 supply the MGCsplit-modules
with a direct voltage of 28 V. The input voltage range is 10 V ... 50 V
(DC). The power supply units are not potentially isolated.
The power supply unit NT650 is specially designed for test drives and
can bridge voltage interruptions of up to 10 seconds 15 minutes after
being switched on (if 10 measurement modules are connected). The
buffer capacitors are automatically recharged as long as the power
supply unit is switched on.
Use a 4-wire cable for the supply line with a wire cross-section of 0.5
mm2. Always connect all 4 wires.
Avoid high contact resistances (e.g. due to corroded plug connectors)!

1−NT650
Input
Output
You can connect a maximum of 10 modules (1x SH400CP and 9x
SH400 or SH650) or, if using a ABX22 display- and control panel, a
maximum of 9 modules. If more MGCsplit-modules (up to 1x SH400CP,
16x SH400 or SH650 and 1x ABX22) are to be operated, you will need
an additional power supply unit. Both power supply units should in this
case be arranged directly behind one another.
Connect the MGCsplit measuring system to the sockets ”SPLIT−LINE
IN” and ”SPLIT−LINE OUT”. Only use the Split Line cable from HBM.
You can connect the power supply unit at any point in the measuring
system. Just interrupt the SPLIT−LINE and connect the power supply
unit in between.
Connection at the start of the system (before the SH400CP):
Advantage: if there is a power failure, the communication processor
CPxx receives a warning signal from the NT650 if the energy only
suffices for another ca. 5 seconds. It can therefore finish the
measurement in a defined manner.
Connection in the middle (e.g. between two SH650 measurement
modules):
Advantage: Good power distribution (less losses in the supply lines).

With pin 5 you can switch the power supply unit on or off remotely. The
mains switch must be in the position ”REMOTE”. A change in the level
from over 3V to under 1V or vice versa causes switching, either from
”OFF” to ”ON” or from ”ON” to ”OFF”.
The CAN bus is connected to pins 1 and 4, the earth may also be
required. A CAN terminating resistor is not present in the power supply
unit, if necessary you must add one externally. Switching on and off is
implemented with two predefined messages (see Page B-67).
The galvanically isolated digital input NT_ON is related to GNDM.
GNDM can if necessary be connected with pin 6 (0V_IN).

ON
The power supply unit is switched on, connected MGCsplit
measuring systems are supplied with 28 V DC. (*)
OFF
The power supply unit is switched off, connected MGCsplit
measuring systems are not supplied. (*)
REMOTE
a) Directly after switching from switch position OFF or after
deactivation via CAN or digital input:
The power supply unit is switched off, green LED flashes every 2s,
connected MGCsplit-measuring system is only supplied when it is
activated via the CAN or digital input.
b) After activation via CAN or digital input:
The power supply unit is switched on, green LED lights up,
connected MGCsplit measuring systems are supplied with 28 V DC.
(*)
(*) NT650 only: The buffer capacitors are automatically recharged when
necessary (additional power consumption up to ca. 8W).
Manual on/off switching
Turn the ”POWER” switch to the ”ON” or ”OFF” position.
Remote on/off switching
In the switch position ”REMOTE”, you can switch the power supply unit
on/off via the CAN bus. Standard CAN is supported as per ISO11898
(Transceiver PCA82C251). A switch on and switch off message are
defined.

Ensure that a terminating resistor (120 Ohm) is present on both ends of
the CAN bus. The listed CAN parameters are preset but can be
adapted by HBM on request.
Remote control via digital input
In the switch position ”REMOTE”, the power supply unit can be
switched on/off via a galvanically isolated digital input.
Switching on/off is flank controlled, i.e. switching occurs when a flank is
detected, either from ”OFF” to ”ON” or from ”ON” to ”OFF”.
A flank is detected when the actual level of the signal ”NT_ON”
changes from < 1V to > 3V (rising flank) or from > 3V to < 1V (falling
flank).
Remote control via CAN and digital input
Both variants can be combined, e.g. switching on via CAN switch on
message, switching off with rising or falling flank at the digital input.
Bridging of voltage failures (NT650 only):
The power supply unit NT650 is equipped with so-called ”buffer
capacitors” which are fully loaded within 15 minutes of the supply
voltage being connected. If the power fails (e.g. during the vehicle
starting procedure), the power supply unit is supplied by these
capacitors.
A connected MGCsplit system with maximum modules can be supplied
for at least 10 seconds, correspondingly longer if less modules are
connected.
If a CP module is directly connected to the Split Line output and the
capacitor feed is active, then the CP module will receive a warning
signal (PDWN_CP based on GNDD) ca. 5 seconds before the buffer
energy is exhausted and can therefore end a current measurement
data recording in a defined manner.
MGCplus with AB22A/AB32
Connecting Ý MGCsplit
B-69
Once the input voltage is again available, discharged buffer capacitors
are recharged, regardless of the NT650 switch position. Recharging
can take up to 15 minutes if the buffer capacitors are fully discharged.
A drop in capacitor voltage through self-discharge is also detected and
compensated for by cyclical recharging. However, this requires that the
NT650 is continually supplied with voltage.
In order to achieve correct switching from external supply to capacitor
supply, the supply lines must be as short and as low impedance as
possible. Too many or poor plug connections can also affect the
bridging function due to transition impedance. This must be taken into
account when using numerous modules and low supply voltages.
Operating states and errors, LED displays:
Two LEDs are located on the front panel, these can display various
operating states and errors.

The front panel of a one-channel module includes a female BNC connector for analogue
output signal VO1. (This female connector is for test purposes. The fixed wiring should
always go through the connection boards, since the noise voltage is smaller here).
NOTE
Please note: the input resistance of the connected device must be greater than 1 MW.
When connecting a coaxial cable to the analog output of the ML60B preamplifier module for
use in Class B environments, acc. to EN55011 or EN55022 (residential premises, business
and trade, and small businesses), a ferrite (Würth, art. No. 742 711 72 or similar) must be
attached to the cable.

•
Pin 10 is only used if the connection board is fitted with the EM001 final stage module. This must be installed
as described in chapter 9.3.2. The switch position determines whether the output signal is made available as a
voltage signal or as a current signal.
Vo= 0...10 V, Ro >500 W
Io = 0...20 mA or +4...20 mA; Ro <500 W
•
Pin 11 is only used if the connection board is fitted with the EM001 final stage module. This must be installed
as described in chapter 9.3.2. The switch position determines whether the output signal is made available as a

NOTE
Connection boards AP08/14/17/18i may only be fitted with one final stage module. In this case pin 11 is
used and pin 10 is left free.
•
On pin 12 you will find analogue output signal VO2.
The connected load resistance must be greater than 5 kW.
•
On pin 13 you will find analogue output signal VO1 exactly as on the BNC female connector on the front panel.
Signals S1 to S4 are to be assigned as required to outputs V01 (Bu2 and BNC) and V02 (Bu2 only).

Connecting Ý Outputs and remotes
On pins 17 to 20 you will find the connection states for limit switches 1 to 4. Their connection states are indicated by two different HCMOS voltage levels:
Positive logic:
Level 0V: Limit switch OFF
Level 5V: Limit switch ON
•
Pin 21 carries a level of 5 V (high level), which can be used as a warning signal. In the event of a fault − for example a break in the transducer cable − the output signal is set to 0 V (low). On the other hand, this signal is
also set to zero during the autocalibration cycle (every 5 min., for approx.1 s).
Remotes
On pins 2 to 9 of female connector 2 you will find remotes Ctrl 1 to 8 for controlling certain of the amplifier’s functions. These remotes are active if they have been enabled via an AB22A/AB32 display and control panel, i.e. in REMOTE operating mode. The tasks assigned to these remotes can be freely selected. The available functions are
shown in chapter F ”Additional functions” together with their descriptions.
In the factory preset, the remotes are not defined.

Remote 7 is used as an external trigger input. For AP13i (Remote contact 7) see page B-49.

The EM001 final stage module can only be used with connection
boards without transducer recognition.
For correct positioning on the connection boards’ mother board the
EM001 final stage module has been marked with the numeral 1 on the
bottom left corner and a triangle on the left side. These symbols have
also been printed onto the mother board.
After having inserted the final stage module, you have to select the
switch and bridge positions according to the desired output signal (see
tables).

Commissioning
This chapter shows you the necessary steps to take in order to make your measurement chain (amplifier system
and transducer) ready for use.
You will then be in a position to carry out a function test of all components. The various steps are deliberately explained in very general terms, without going into detail about specific transducers or amplifier plug-in modules.
However, it is very easy to apply the description to your own measurement chain. In some instances − especially to
do with connecting transducers − reference will be made to later chapters. We also warn about certain errors which
can typically occur during commissioning.
After initial commissioning and adapting the amplifier plug-in module to your transducer, you are in a position to get
to know the other functions and facilities of the MGCplus amplifier system.

If you have not yet received your complete amplifier system, you should take note of the following points when
putting the system together:
− The amplifier plug-in units are plugged in at the front panel and the associated connection boards are plugged
in at the back.
It is important to ensure correct allocation during this step:
− If using wide connection boards (8 divisions), you must plug these into slots 1, 3, 5 etc. Slots 2, 4, 6 etc. on the
front panel must be left free or with fitted blank plates.
• On safety grounds, all unused slots (amplifiers or connection boards) must be covered over with blank plates.
•
•
•
Check that all amplifiers and connection boards are firmly plugged in.
Connect the device to the mains supply with the mains cable provided.
Connect your transducer to the female connector provided on the connection board (reference BU01). If you
use a cable you have made up yourself, please adhere to the pin assignment for your transducer as shown in
chapter B.
Please note the safety instructions on page A-3.

General notes
This chapter shows you the steps involved in taking a measurement with the MGCplus. At the beginning of each
section an example explains the details specific to each transducer with regard to adapting the amplifier plug-in
modules. Once the amplifier plug-in modules are matched you can proceed with taking measurements. For
information on other functions such as limit switches or peak value stores, see chapter F ”Additional functions”.
Steps in setting up the measurement chain
1
Settings specific to the transducer: bridge type, excitation voltage, sensitivity, k-factor.
2
Settings for conditioning: zero balance, zero offset, tare value, filter settings.
3
Settings specific to the display: unit, decimal places, scale range, step.
4
Settings for analogue output: gross, net, peak value, output characteristics.
You can set up the zero point and measuring range in two ways, depending on the requirement:
a) by inputting the given transducer characteristics
b) by calibration with direct loading

TEDS (Transducer Electronic Data Sheet) is the designation for an
electronic data sheet in the transducer. It is stored in an electronic module that is inseparably connected to the transducer. It can be located
in the transducer housing, in the inseparable cable or connector plug.
Many components in the MGCplus amplifier system are capable of reading the transducer information stored in the data sheet and to convert
it into amplifier settings so that measurements can be started immediately.
MGCplus supports TEDS-transducers that comply with the data protocol (One-Wire-Protocol) and data structure in the IEEE 1451.4 standard.
This means that the same cables can be used as for transducers that
do not have TEDS.
Some MGCplus system connection plates, e.g. AP01i, also offer the
possibility of inputting TEDS data signals to two separate pins (ground
and TEDs data signal).
Loading TEDS data into the amplifier
In the default setting, the TEDS key F2 is in level 2 of the function keys.
1. Press it in measuring mode
2. Press the TEDS-key
.
.
The actual amplifier will then be parameterised with the transducer settings from the TEDS chip if it supports this functionality.

TEDS supports the following combinations of single-channel amplifiers with corresponding connection plates as per
IEEE 1451.4. All single-channel amplifier MLxxB are suitable for TEDS, however they must be equipped with up to

Impulse response
Low pass
Low-pass filters are used to suppress unwanted high-frequency
interference above a defined cut-off frequency.
Amplitude response, phase delay and impulse response are dependent
on the filter characteristics. You can choose between the Butterworth
characteristic and the Bessel characteristic.
Impulse response
The Butterworth characteristic exhibits a linear amplitude response
which then falls away steeply above the cut-off frequency. There is an
overshoot of approx. 10 %.
The Bessel characteristic exhibits an impulse response with very little
(<1 %) or no overshooting. The amplitude response falls away less
steeply.
High pass
High-pass filters are used to suppress unwanted low-frequency
interference below a defined cut-off frequency. You can use high-pass
to suppress slow fluctuations such as those due to the influence of
temperature and drift over time.
The high-pass filter has no function when connected to resistance
thermometers and thermocouples.
NOTE
In order for high-pass to function, the low-pass setting must not
fall below the following limits:
Bessel:
≥5 Hz
Butterworth:
≥10 Hz

SG transducer
SG transducers (HBM load cells, force transducers) are passive transducers with the following characteristics:
•
•
•
they must be fed with an excitation voltage (carrier frequency or DC voltage)
they are SG full bridges
The transducer has the following characteristic data:
− Nominal load (e.g. 20kg)
− Nominal sensitivity (e.g. 2mV/V)
These values must be taken into account during adaptation to the amplifier.
The standard set-up for excitation voltage UB in the case of an SG full bridge is 5V. If higher measuring ranges are
required or if several transducers are connected in parallel, a lower excitation voltage must me selected. The individual values depend on the type of plug-in module used.

Strain gages
The variable to which reference is to be made for assessment of the material loading is the mechanical stress to
which the material is exposed. A practical method for experimental determination of material stresses is based on
strain gages. A detailed description of the strain gage technique may be found in the book ”An Introduction to the
Technique of Measuring with Strain Gauges” (Author: Karl Hoffmann, published by HBM Darmstadt).
The resistance of the SG is changed by straining. This change lies in the mW and mW range, which is why the
Wheatstone bridge is used for measuring with great accuracy.

The measurement system always measures the total strain (e) of the individual strain gages in the Wheatstone
bridge. In practice individual strain gages are generally used for mechanical stress analysis.
Due to the temperature compensation, the larger measuring signal, better cable resistance compensation and in
some tension states the half bridge and the full bridge are used (e.g. for measuring on a bent rod).
The most important characteristic of an SG is the k-factor (strain sensitivity). The MGCplus measurement system
automatically switches over to strain measurement when a k-factor >0 is input. Scaling of the zero point and measuring range is carried out in mm/m. By changing the unit and input range, other physical variables (e.g. mechanical
stress in N/mm2) can be derived. If zero is entered as the k-factor the system switches over to mV/V.
Example:
A strain of up to 1000 mm/m is to be measured with 120 W single strain gages. The k-factor of the
SG is 2.05. The excitation voltage plays no part in this example. The setup for 2.5 V will be described.

•
•
they must be fed with an excitation voltage (carrier frequency)
they are inductive half bridges
The transducer has the following characteristic data:
− Nominal displacement (e.g. 20 mm)
− Nominal sensitivity (e.g. 10 mV/V)
The standard set-up for the excitation voltage UB in the case of inductive transducers is 2.5V. If higher measuring
ranges are required or if several transducers are connected in parallel, a lower excitation voltage must me selected.
The individual values depend on the type of plug-in module used.

Measure Ý Torque transducers
3.4
E-37
Torque transducer
Torque transducers with different measurement principles require different amplifier modules in the MGCplus-system and therefore different operating steps.
The HBM torque transducers in the type series TB1A and TB2 work with SG full bridges. The procedure described
in Section 3.1 (SG transducer) must be followed to adapt the torque channels (ML10B, ML30B, ML38, ML55B) of
these transducers.
The adaptation of the speed channels (ML60B/ML460) corresponds to the procedure described in this chapter.
The HBM-torque transducers in type series T3_FNA and T10F−KF1 work with a frequency modulation procedure
(TF ca. 10kHz corresponds to unloaded shaft, modulation through load 5kHz). You will need the connection
plates AP07 or AP07/1 for processing measured values.
The HBM-torque flanges in type series T10F/T10FS−SF1/SU2 and T10FM require connection plate AP17 for operation with the amplifier modules ML60B (one amplifier module each for torque and speed).
When using the amplifier modules ML460 (multi-channel module) with the connection plates AP6401, the T10..
transducers must be powered externally.
For calculating additional parameters, such as the rotation output (product of speed and torque), the freely programmable module ML70B is recommended for MGCplus. Another option is the use of ”online calculation channels” in the HBM measured data recording software catman.

Measure Ý Thermocouples

Thermocouples
Thermocouples are active transducers. For measurements using
thermocouples you need the ML01B amplifier plug-in module and the
AP09 connection board. The AP09 has a built-in reference temperature
measuring point. The amplifier plug-in module carries out cold-spot
compensation and linearisation for type J, T, K and S thermocouples.
With the ’Thermocouples’ operating mode and units °C or °F selected,
the temperature will be displayed appropriately in the required unit.
With Volt selected as the unit, scaling is carried out in accordance with
the output voltage1).
The following example explains the settings:
Type K thermocouple, the temperature is to be displayed in °C , with a
temperature of 50°C corresponding to an output signal of 0 V. The
temperature of 70°C corresponds to an output signal of +10 V.

automatic linearisation and display the temperature in correct digits.
With ’resistance temperature detector’ operating mode and unit °C or °F selected, the corresponding temperature
will be displayed in degrees of the required unit. With Volt selected as the unit, scaling is carried out in accordance
with the output voltage1).
The following example explains the set-ups:

corresponding to an output signal of 0 V. The output signal at 70°C is to be +10 V.

The permissible ranges depend on the bridge excitation voltage. If a measuring range is set up that exceeds the amplifier’s adjustment
range, the maximum or minimum possible value is adopted.

Impulse counting
The ML60B amplifier is required for impulse counting purposes. It enables a maximum impulse-sequence frequency of 1 MHz to be processed. For more details on further amplifier setup options refer to chapter 3.4, page
E-44. Incremental transducers − e.g. for angle measurement − deliver two square-wave signals which are 90° out
of phase. The clock ratio between High and Low for both signals must be approx. 1:1.
The following example explains the set-ups:
An angle of rotation transducer delivers 180 impulses per revolution. These impulses are to be displayed as 360° .
Due to the number of impulses per revolution the value 2 is specified as Step, since a higher resolution would make
no sense. The levels of the square-wave signal amount to 10 V.
A frequency signal with quadrupled counter impulses is required at the output in addition to the measured value.

Piezoelectric transducers
Piezoelectric transducers are active transducers that emit a charge in the event of mechanical loading. When using
these transducers, please observe the following instructions:
•
•
For transducer connection, special cable with high isolation resistance, low capacitance, low noise and a wide
temperature range is essential. Standard coaxial cable is unsuitable for this type of application.
For quasi-static measurements a very high isolation resistance (>100TΩ ) is required. For this reason all input
plugs must be kept clean and should not be touched by hand. Please use a suitable cleaning agent for cleaning
(e.g. pure petroleum spirit).
To operate piezoelectric transducers you need the AP08 connection board with the charge amplifier and an ML10B
or ML01B DC amplifier.
A piezoelectric transducer can be thought of as a capacitor that is charged by mechanical loading. In all cases, discharging is via the input and isolation resistor on the amplifier. The time constant determines the speed of discharge. There are three time constants from which to choose:
SHORT
MEDIUM
LONG
for dynamic measurement
for dynamic measurement with a limited frequency range
for quasi-static measurement
Coarse and fine adjustment can be chosen for the measuring range selection. There are four input ranges for
coarse adjustment: 100 pC; 1; 10 and 100 nC.
Example: If the measuring range 6000 pC is wanted, set up the next higher input range of 10 nC.
MGCplus with AB22A / AB32
Measure ➝ Piezoelectric transducers
E-67
With a constant transducer loading the value in the display or at the output signal may drift. This may result from
insufficient cable isolation resistance or incorrect drift balance on the amplifier.
We recommend that all male connectors should first be cleaned. If the problem persists, the drift needs to be readjusted (see chap.4.2).
The following example explains the set-ups:
You wish to use a piezoelectric acceleration transducer for measurement. Transducer nominal value is 100 pC/g.
Dynamic measurement is to be taken, up to 60 g = 10 V.
Measuring range 60 g ⋅100 pC/g = 6000 pC

Current-fed piezoelectric transducers
Piezoelectric transducers with a built-in preamplifier are often used for acceleration and force measurement. These
transducers need a constant current for the power supply. The measurement signal corresponds to the modulated
voltage at the power line. A typical example of this product family is the DeltaTronT acceleration transducer from
Brüel&Kjaer.
To operate current-fed piezoelectric transducers you will need connection board AP18i and an ML10B or ML01B
DC amplifier. You can select rough and fine adjustment for the measuring range. 3 input ranges are available for
coarse adjustment: 0.1 V; 1 V; 10 V.
Example: If you want a measuring range of 7 V the next input range up 10 V is set.
The zero point defines the voltage which generates 0 V at the output of the amplifier. The nominal value is always
defined relative to this zero point.
Analogue outputs are used to define the display scaling, i.e. they are used to define the value that is displayed for
an output signal of 10 V.
The following example explains the set-ups:
An acceleration of up to 300 m/s2 is to be measured with a DeltaTronT transducer. The nominal value of the transducer is 1 mV/ m/s2.
Measuring range (fine adjustment):
300 m/s2 x 1 mV/m/s2 = 0.3 V
Input range (coarse adjustment):
1 V ( > 0.3 V)

Measure Ý Potentiometric transducers

Potentiometric transducers
Resistors are passive transducers. These transducers require the ML35B , amplifier plug-in module, which has two
coarse measuring ranges available (0...500 Ω and 0...5 kΩ).
Potentiometric transducers are passive transducers that have to be supplied with an excitation voltage. To operate
a potentiometric transducer you require the ML10B amplifier. Please note that the maximum resistance value is
5 kΩ.
The following example explains the set-ups:
A potentiometric displacement transducer with a nominal displacement of 10 mm is used for measurement. The
whole nominal displacement is to be used. The display range is 10 mm.
Due to the interdependence between excitation voltage and nominal input voltage (mV/V), in the case of an excitation voltage of 2.5 V, the measuring range needs to be set up in accordance with the following correlation:
Nominal value to be set up =
(RANGE)
Rated voltage (displacement)
Excitation voltage
Nominal value (range) = 2.5 V / 2.5 V = 1000 mV/V
This value of 1000 mV/V or 1 V/V only changes if a potentiometric transducer is used in a section.
As the second method, partial calibration with end values of 7 mm is performed for calibration of the zero point and
range with a defined displacement.

Additional functions Ý Limit switches
Limit switches (one-channel modules only)
In order to assess mass or weight tolerances, or when monitoring
forces, pressures etc., it is often necessary to comply with certain target
values or limit switches. Each amplifier plug-in module therefore has
four limit switches available (in ex-factory status these are OFF).
They can be used to specify the level, the hysteresis and the direction
of each for limit switch monitoring. The hysteresis value prevents
”fluttering” of the limit switches upon reaching the switching threshold.
The prevailing connection state is indicated by an LED on the front
panel of the amplifier plug-in module when the STATUS display format
is enabled.
Displays
limit switches status
MGCplus with AB22A / AB32
Please note the following points when working with limit switches:
−
The measuring signal must last for at least 1 ms. The measurement
voltage delivered by the amplifier is compared internally with the
reference voltage. If the measurement voltage reaches or exceeds
the reference voltage that has been set, the associated logic output
is switched and the appropriate LED indicates the connection state.
−
If you are using the AP02 connection board, you also have relay
contacts available.
−
Connection board AP13i has 24 V PLC−compatible, optically
decoupled limit switch outputs.

scanned 38400 times per second, corresponding to 26 µsec.
The peak value stores are abbreviated to Store1 and Store2 in the

Peak value stores can also be used to provide an envelope display. The
envelope function is suitable for measuring amplitude modulated
vibration. Inputting a decay time defines how quickly the peak value
store is discharged to 30 % of the peak value when the latter is no
longer present at memory input. The choice of decay time depends on
the basic vibration frequency f0 and the modulation frequency. Usable
envelopes are obtained in most cases with a decay time which is about
a multiple of 10 of the basic frequency period (t= 10 / f0).

Switching automatic calibration on and off. When AUTOCAL is ”On”,
this improves the temperature tracking of zero point and the long term
stability of the amplifier. If you need the analogue output signal for
continuous monitoring, you must switch autocalibration off. This is
because during calibration no data is acquired, giving rise to a ”gap” in
the measurement output (at intervals of approx. 5 minutes, lasting
about 1 second, depending on the filter setting.

The value entered depends on the ”absolute/relative” selection.
This setting lets you use ”3 values” and ”6 values” types to define which
reference to the basic channel is produced.
Absolute/relativ to base
This setting lets you use ”3 values” and ”6 values” types to define
whether a reference to the channel number of the basic channel is
produced.
Absolute: The measured value and signal of the selected channel are
displayed independently of the basic value. The number entered
corresponds to the actual channel number. Changing channels in
measuring mode has no effect on this display value.
relativ to base: The number entered refers to the basic channel
(display value 1). Channels to the left of the basic channel are entered
with a negative sign and those to the right of it are entered with a
positive sign.
Caution: This value does not correspond to the actual (absolute)
channel number.

Absolute: The measured value and signal of the selected channel are
displayed independently of the basic value. The number entered
corresponds to the actual channel number. Changing channels has no
effect.
Relativ to base: The number entered refers to the basic channel. The
basic channel number is 0. Channels to the left of the basic channel are
entered with a negative sign and those to the right of it are entered with
a positive sign. Caution: This value does not correspond to the actual

You can protect all the settings on your unit with a password. In factory setting this password protection is disabled.
Once password protection is activated, the password must be entered each time Setup mode is called (and whenever the unit is switched on again). Only then can the settings be changed. There is no need to enter a password
just for measuring mode.
Access authorisation is linked to the password:
•
System (all settings can be changed)
•
Operator (only enabled settings can be changed)
You can define a password and access authorisation for a maximum of nine users.
Important: When the equipment is in ex-factory status, password protection cannot be enabled until a new user

Recording measurement series
With MGCplus, to record measurement series, you can configure and
save up to 17 data acquisition programs (16 on the hard disk).
PC card harddisk
Saved data is stored in the RAM of communications processor CP42,
or on its PC card harddisk (optional). The following types of harddisks
are supported:
CP42
RS 232
CARDBUS
•
•
USB DEVICE
•
USB HOST
ETHERNET
Harddisk type ATA standard, Type 2 (narrow design, approx. 5 mm
thick)
The maximum capacity is in principle not limited. At the moment the
PC card harddisks up to 5 GB have been tested.
Formatted in FAT-16 or FAT-32 data systems. Other data systems
(e.g. NTFS) are not supported.
As the data rates of these hard disks are generally limited to 1 MB/s, a
maximum of 13 channels of the MGCplus in 4 byte format with a
maximum measurement rate of 19.2 kHz can be recorded.

Reading a CP42 file
You must know the internal file format to be able to read and interpret the data in the file. A CP42 file is a binary file,
with the following structure:
The following header data precedes the actual data area:
File ID (4 Byte LONG) // currently = 6001
Channel values (4 Byte LONG)
Length of a data row (i.e. one value for all channels/signals) in bytes (4 Byte LONG)
Values of data rows (i.e. values/channel) in the file (4 Byte LONG)
Data format used to save the values ( 4 Byte LONG)
Measuring rate used for recording (4 Byte LONG)
Size of the header area in bytes (4 Byte LONG) // currently = 512
Reserved (4 Byte LONG)
Followed, for each channel, by:
Channel number (4 Byte LONG)
Scaling info: measuring range MR (4 Byte FLOAT)
Scaling info: Offset (zero offset) OS (4 Byte FLOAT)
Unit (4 Byte CHARACTER)
Signal mask (4 Byte LONG)
The signal mask specifies how many values appear in the data row for each channel:
Bit 0 set: GROSS signal
Bit 1 set: NET signal
Bit 2 set: Peak value 1
Bit 3 set: Peak value 2
MGCplus with AB22A / AB32
H-28
System Ý Data acquisition
This means that a maximum of 4 successive values may be displayed for each individual channel.
This channel block is followed by information on date and time:
TimeDate (30 Byte CHARACTER)
The subsequent bytes to the end of the header area are reserved for future use and can be omitted. They are followed, data row by data row (in the example, we assume that Bit 0 (Gross) and Bit 2 (Peak value 1) are set), by the
values:
C1, 1 (Gross)
C1: Channel 1
C1, 1 (PV1)
C2, 1 (Gross)
C2, 1 (PV 1)
________________________________
New data row
C1, 2 (Gross)
C1, 2 (PV 1)
C2, 2 (Gross)
C2, 2 (PV 1)
Each value (measurement) occupies 4 bytes (data formats 1253=LONG and 1257=FLOAT) or 2 bytes (data format
1255=INT). Integer formats are stored in INTEL (TM) format, i.e. MSB −> LSB.
The data format used for recording will determine how the source values are re-scaled for
each channel:
1253 (LONG): physical value = (binary source value) / (256*7680000) * MR + OS
1255 (INT): physical value = (binary source value) * 256 / 7680000) * MR + OS
1257 (FLOAT): physical value = (binary source value)
MR: measuring range
OS: offset
NOTE
the 1253 LONG format includes status information in the least significant byte. To call this status, you
should check this byte, before (!) you scale, as dividing by 256 will cause the least significant byte to be
lost.

An IP address always consists of 4 numbers. Each number must be in
the range 1 to 254. Absolute exceptions are the numbers 127.x.x.x and
192.168.x.x. The first of these always designates the local host, i.e.
your own machine. The numbers 192.168.x.x refer to special IP
addresses which are not forwarded over a router. Thus if a network is
numbered 192.168.x.x this automatically ensures that the network
cannot be accessed from outside. The net mask can be used to
determine and define which nodes form part of the in-house network.

If data packets are sent via node points, e.g. from the in-house network
to the Internet or a WAN/LAN, a router is needed. This distributes data
packets in different directions on the basis of their addresses.

*) MGCplus − COMPLIANCE OF STANDARDS: The MGCplus system is tested according to the harmonized European standards EN61326
and EN61010 Therefore it achieves the protection aims of EEC directive 89/336EEC in the field of electromagnetic compatibility and EEC directive 73/23/EEC in the field of electrical safety of low voltage equipment. Mechanical stress is tested according to European Standard
EN60068−2−6 for vibrations and EN60068−2−27 for shock. The equipment is exposed to an acceleration of 25 m/s2 within the frequency range
of 5...65 Hz in all 3 axes. Duration of this vibration test: 30min per axis. The shock test is performed with a rated value of 200 m/s2 acceleration
during 11 ms, half sine pulse shape, with 3 shocks in each of the 6 possible directions.
