Measuring computer type PRONIMAX are on the market since 2004. Today the series PRONIMAX V5 is standard. That type includes more than 40 years’ experience in design, manufacturing, sales and service of that product family.
PRONIMAX V5 works with Microsoft Windows 10 and our PROMESS SPC software 2.x.
As all forerunners, the unit is completely sealed and works with a very efficient heat exchange system. So there is no air exchange with external air, the unit is splash water and dust protected and works in 10-45°C (50-113°F) surrounding temperature.

All transducers are connected at the backside of the unit. Two network interfaces and two USB ports are on the rear panel available. All digital I/O are connected via 40 pin industrial plug. To achieve 100% Windows compatibility, we developed a completely brand new hardware.
The resulting Interface module holds four channels for inductive transducers (every channel also providing +-10V/DC inputs) and the complete signal conditioning electronic. A microcontroller performs 16 bit A/D conversion and transfers all data with an Ethernet interface to the measuring computer.

Additional measuring modules are connected with the industrial proofed CAN bus. The firmware of that unit together with the new family of driving software achieves measuring speeds of more than 1000 measurements per second, regardless of the number of channels connected.

As an alternative or additionally the system could get external transducer boxes.

That NETBOX 3 uses also Ethernet interface, within the NETBOX 3 the modules are connected with CAN bus. That concept supports nearly unlimited number of channels. Additionally digital I/O modules and Profibus-, Profinet-, DeviceNet or other interface modules could be used.
