Maisach, Bayern, Germany, 2008/12/17 - With more than 25 sensor types BMC Messsysteme GmbH, manufacturer of measurement technology "made in Germany", considerably extends its product range in the sensor area. High-quality sensors for industrial applications and strain gauges were added.
In PC data acquisition, the selection of a sensor is the suitable starting point for many, to solve a measuring task. Basically, a measuring task means to record a certain physical quantity and to provide these values in digital form.
In industrial production, for example, environmental conditions, such as temperature or humidity, must be measured permanently. In the field of testing, products have to pass stress tests performing strain measurements under force application, for instance. Scientific experiments require to measure the most varied physical quantities in order to make well-founded statements.
Many more applications could be listed in this context. These examples, however, illustrate how large the variety of available sensors must be. And indeed, many users are not able to handle the large choice of sensors. Significant differences in design, quality and price levels exist even between sensor types recording the same physical quantity. In addition, the user must ensure the compatibility to a data acquisition system or a measuring amplifier or transformer connected in between.
By assorting a choice of sensors BMC Messsysteme GmbH has taken care of this problem. They are available at bmcm and fully compatible to the bmcm products of signal conditioning and data acquisition. So far, the range consisted of semiconductor sensors, active and passive "Sensor Components", (SC series) and "Digital Sensors" (SD series)and has been completed now by the categories "Industrial Sensors" (SI series) and "Strain Gauges" (SG series) covering a large range of measuring applications.
All sensors have been tested with data acquisition systems and measuring amplifiers from bmcm. Several connection examples illustrate the connection and use of the sensors. The offered sensor types represent only a selection. For special types, bmcm can be contacted, if necessary.
Sensors with high quality concerning design, robustness and accuracy fall in the category of the industrial sensors. Since customer proximity, reachability and "made in Germany" play an important role at bmcm, sensors of German manufacturers providing intensive counseling to customers with special demands have been chosen primarily.
A special part in sensor technology is played by strain gauges, because strain gauge measuring applications demand extended background knowledge. Therefore, BMC Messsysteme GmbH has grouped them in a separate category providing not just strain gauge sensors but also accessories to setup a strain gauge application.
In this connection, the product overview "SENSORS" introducing the available sensors at bmcm has been released. It can be ordered for free or be downloaded as PDF file from the bmcm website.
With the great choice of sensors BMC Messsysteme GmbH provides not just a good start to solve measurement tasks but also brings problems to an end - with measurement technology from sensor to software.
About BMC Messsysteme GmbH (bmcm)
BMC Messsysteme GmbH was founded in 1994 as an independent corporation with headquarters in Maisach, app. 30 km west of Munich. bmcm is one of the only German companies that completely develops and produces in Germany. The products of data acquisition and PC technology from BMC Messysteme GmbH stand for quality "made in Germany". A high value is set on keeping an excellent price/performance ratio. Since establishing a direct distribution in July 2006, customers have been able to profit from the advantage of direct contact to the manufacturer.
BMC Messsysteme GmbH serves the following business areas:
Measuring components and PC measurement technology
This comprises a wide range of connection systems, measuring amplifiers, data acquisition cards (internal and external), "ready-for-use" data acquisition systems, data loggers and the appropriate software for visualization, recording and analysis.
This area includes embedded PCs developed as complete solutions as well as single PC components often used in the automotive field.
D2M (Design to Manufacturing) and OEM products
BMC Messsysteme GmbH develops and produces electronic components according to customer specifications.
You will receive high-quality products manufactured already since the beginning of 2006 according to the RoHS directive. Of course, the corresponding documentation and CE test is always included.
A German documentation is obligatory for us, as well as an English description to be available to our international customers.
