Hottinger Baldwin Messtechnik (HBM) has more than 50 years’ experience in the electrical measurement of mechanical quantities and successfully operates in many sectors including the railway industry. We have focused our substantial application know-how on providing complete system solutions, especially suitable for the railway industry’s testing and measuring requirements.

Among a whole range of equipment, HBM performs railway engineering tests on freight wagons, wheelset bearing and axles, non-circular and non-concentric wheels and track bed structure. Other tests include:

  • Experimental stress analysis
  • GPS track recording
  • Power tests
  • Compression tests
  • Braking tests
  • Overriding tests

HBM’s electrical measurement testing also includes the automotive and aerospace industries and production and process automation, testing and systems.

Railcar body measurements

We provide static and dynamic multipoint measuring technology for 1,000 and more measuring channels. Our MGCplus amplifier system allows parallel and synchronous data acquisition.

HBM has vast experience in the electrical measurement of mechanical quantities.
Substantial applications knowledge has allowed us to provide complete systems solutions for testing and measurement to the railway industry.
For rail car bodies we provide static and dynamic multipoint measuring technology for 1,000 and more measuring channels.
Our unique, dynamic multipoint measuring technology allows data from all connected measuring channels to be acquired synchronously and in parallel.
As a partner in measurement technology, HBM provides you with well-tuned components ranging from sensors through to amplifiers and software.

Mobile data acquisition

Our unique, dynamic multipoint measuring technology allows data from all connected measuring channels to be acquired synchronously and in parallel. Benefit from the sample rates of up to 19.2kHz and the unlimited number of parallel measuring channels to adapt the system to your individual requirements.

Measuring system for test rigs

The MGCplus system offers both excellent data integrity and simultaneous digital data acquisition for PLC and testing PC. Standard interfaces such as Profibus DP, Ethernet, CAN, IEE 488 are used for communication.

Technical and operating safety is a crucial feature in the railway industry. HBM test system technology already has set standards in many fields.

HBM’s single-source approach

As your partner in measurement technology, HBM can provide you with well-tuned components ranging from sensors through to amplifiers and software. The components’ modular design allows nearly any combination and thus the assembly of measurement chains optimally fit for your measurement task.

Sensors

We offer a great variety of standard sensors and transducers for force, pressure, strain, acceleration, torque as well as strain gauges and customized sensors.

Amplifier systems

Our scalable amplifier systems can be extended to up to several thousands of channels. They provide the options of manual or computer control and allow stand-alone or network operation (fieldbus, Ethernet). All commonly available sensor types can be connected.

PC measurement technology means: computer controlled measurement electronics for four up to 64 channels, for all standard sensor principles.

Software

HBM offers data acquisition, evaluation and visualization for all computer controlled HBM measuring systems, interactive measurement, automatic measurement runs, complete development of user-specific applications and integration of third-party systems.

Service

HBM provides you with measurement equipment and is at hand to support you with scheduling and installing the sensors, taking measurements in compliance with standards and customer requirements, data conditioning, evaluation and visualization.
