HBM, provider of state-of-the-art transducers, signal conditioning electronics, data acquisition systems and measurement software, announced today the release of their newly acquired SoMat eDAQ and eDAQlite data acquisition systems.

SoMat systems have been leaders in field data acquisition for more than 25 years, servicing Fortune 500 companies in the automotive, off-highway, aerospace and defense industries.

SoMat systems have set the standard for rugged, mobile data acquisition. Engineered for stand-alone testing in the harshest of environments; eDAQ systems provide leading-edge signal conditioning and a capacity to perform a broad range of on-board data processing, triggering and complex mathematical computations.

They are fully sealed from the elements yet modular and flexible with support for a wide range of vehicle bus and GPS options.

eDAQ systems utilise standard Ethernet communications, and host their own web servers with configurable IP addresses. No software is required to start/stop test or upload data. This combination allows the eDAQ to effortlessly communicate through wireless WWAN modems, bypassing corporate firewalls, giving users access to their system anywhere in the world.

SoMat systems are simple to use, enabling engineers to overcome complex engineering design challenges and gain customer usage knowledge. Data collected from eDAQ systems help customers eliminate unforeseen failures by measuring durability, performance and operational data from which intelligent business decisions can be made that improve product life performance (PLP) and reduce costs.
