RDP Electronics Ltd. - PRODUCT NEWS
Highest performance R-Series magnetostrictive position sensors. RDP Electronics Ltd’s new MTS R-Series Synchronous Serial encoder Interface (SSI) position sensors are ideally suited to the peripheral machine tool and CNC markets. Based on the ‘next-generation’ Temposonics design platform, these magnetostrictive position sensors are durable and highly reliable. The R-Series SSI output sensor includes options for synchronized 7500 kHz update rates with position accuracy down to ± 20 microns. Thanks to proprietary synchronization technology the R-Series offers accurate position output while minimising inherent system-related delays, producing smooth, precise velocity loop control. Error-checking routines ensure high immunity to shock and vibration; up to 30gav and 100g peak respectively. The double shielded design provides high-level EMC immunity and is packaged in a compact IP 67 housing as standard, or available with ATEX-approved explosion-proof and NEMA 4X housing options. Design flexibility and field adjustability of data format, position resolution, polarity and synchronization parameters are facilitated through the use of PC interface programming software, allowing control engineers to accommodate a range of interfaces and system variations within a common location and helping to reduce sensor inventory. LED diagnostic indicators designed to reduce troubleshooting and down time, include indication for ‘normal operation’, ‘magnet not detected’, ‘missing external interrogation signals’ or ‘insufficient or out-of-range input power’. The R-Series CANbus and Profibus DP industrial network sensors are capable of sensing up to 15 magnet positions and five magnet velocities simultaneously along a single axis, this capability can be used to eliminate multiple linear or discrete sensors. In applications where multiple tools or working elements are positioned along the same axis this allows design simplification and cost reductions to be achieved. ____________________________________________________ For more information, please contact :- RDP Electronics Ltd Grove Street, Heath Town, Wolverhampton WV10 0PY.
