No space for your measurement technology? We have something that needs (almost) no space! The new miniature measurement technology generation!

MANNER: Product development today involves comprehensive simulation as well as space and cost optimization in the concept phase. However, the realization of transmissions, clutches or drive trains often poses challenges that require the use of measurement technology that was not initially planned.

Thus, highly relevant component load measurements/torque measurements have to be realized subsequently and in minimal and specified installation spaces.

To meet these measurement challenges, MANNER has developed the NEW generation of miniature measurement technology. Even compact gearboxes, the interior of a wet clutch or the inside of the drive of a small motorboat offer space for these small dimensions. This enables measurement technology to be realized with high precision that was previously unthinkable.

No compromises are made with regard to the amplifier technology. Here MANNER offers stateof-the-art with the most modern remote control functions. In addition to the remote control function (Auto Zero; gain setting; memory and other online health functions), it is also possible to zero and correct the measured value for the change in E-modulus over temperature - in real time during the measurement. Thus, the measuring accuracy can be increased considerably. Measurement errors due to material properties and environmental influences such as zero drift and temperature dependence of the E-modulus (approx. 2.5% /100°C) can thus be reduced to almost zero.

In addition, multiple channels and bandwidths of up to 10 kHz can be implemented.

If required, the sensor signal amplifier cells can be interconnected to multi-channel systems with almost any form factor. As usual, the new amplifier generation is available in flexible and rigid versions. Thus, even complex data acquisition systems can be realized in any given installation space.

The rigid two-channel amplifier with strain gauge and temperature channel on board has the miniaturized dimensions of 6 mm x 24.8 mm x 3.5 mm, allowing even the integration into compact designs without major adjustments or balancing of the original part.

The flexible version of the new miniature amplifier is available in two variants. For selfapplication the amplifier can be used with an integrated auto-tuning module. This eliminates any manual adjustment effort for the rotor antenna calibration and the application becomes a plug & play application. If the measuring body has particularly small diameters or the space conditions do not allow this comfort function, the high-quality measuring amplifier is also available in the format 45.6 mm x 10 mm.

The new amplifier generation thus offers new integration and measurement possibilities for any automotive testing requirements.

Examples of applications for this new generation of amplifiers include clutches, pulleys, flex plates and the electric motor.
