The system consists of a battery powered LCD measurement display, a plug-in magnetic sensor and an incrementally encoded magnetic strip. They find use in industry and craft centres on e.g. saw benches to determine lengths or angles or boring centres and running saws for determining the position.
Available are two different types of positioning displays, passive magnetic sensors, incrementally encoded magnetic strips and hollow shaft sensors with magnetic probes.
Normal, commercially available batteries fit into a battery compartment in the position display. The sensors are connected to the back of the display by an electrical connector. The display picks up signals from the magnetic strip and converts them to linear data. The display is precise to within 10 µm. One advantage of the measuring system is the spacing between sensor and strip that can be up to 2 mm, this enables wear-free and low maintenance operation and makes the system insensitive to dust, chippings and damp.
Excellent measurement accuracy and efficiency
The robust display device offers an economic solution for many applications in machine construction and the wood-processing industry. It fulfills all standard requirements regarding measurement precision. For linear and angular measurements on shafts and spindles, norelem offers rotary measuring hollow shaft sensors with magnetic probes that can be used with the position display.
With the measuring and positioning displays, norelem is focusing not only on outstanding measuring precision, but also on simple commissioning and operation. Parameters such as resolution, offset values and switch-off time can be freely programmed using the keypad. The system is easy to integrate and saves considerable time during assembly.
