The test and measurement equipment used is a key success factor allowing for short response times. For this reason, SHP opted for HBM's ultra-flexible and compact QuantumX MX840Aamplifier for its static load tests during which displacement transducers, in particular, were installed at the bridge.
QuantumX combines all the characteristics that are required to manage ambitious measurement projects with short deadlines: Advanced Plug & Measure technology enables sensors to be quickly connected to the instrument - and automatically identified. Measurements can be started quickly and analyzed just as swiftly. Furthermore, QuantumX - thanks to its compact size - is the ideal solution even for mobile applications at bridge structures or in other monitoring projects.
QuantumX, combined with catman®AP measurement software, also from HBM, allows fast data visualization, processing and subsequent use for final reports.

"Quick, instant analysis has now become standard in bridge testing. QuantumX allows rapid and reliable measurement data acquisition - and thus helps increase the reliability of our structures." Strasky, Husty and Partners Ltd. (SHP)
