Analog multi-positioning monitoring via teachable C-slot sensor

Added to MTDCNC by MTDCNC on 04 April 2014

The analog MMS-A magnetic switch from SCHUNK is the first teachable encoder that can be integrated directly into the C-slot of gripping modules free of interfering contours.

It serves to accurately detect the size of the gripped parts that can be output as an analog voltage value as 0-5V DC or 0-10V DC, as selected, during the current handling process. Now the extremely compact MMS-A, with a 4mm diameter, is sufficient where previously several magnetic switches were required.

The required electronics are already fully integrated to improve maintenance and operation for the end user. The output signal is sent over a displacement measuring range up to 40mm with a resolution of up to 0.1mm. Using an intuitive teaching function and two LEDs, different magnetic fields can be quickly and easily made linear. To ensure high repeat accuracy, the magnetic analog switch is specifically tailored to the relevant modules from the comprehensive SCHUNK standard program.

Together with the SCHUNK FPS-F5 magnetic sensor system controller, the encoder becomes a simple teachable multi-range sensor that can detect up to five teachable states. The MMS-A has a rugged housing for industrial use and meets protection class IP67. It can be flexibly integrated into systems via the cable outlet (100 cm). The operating voltage is between 12 V and 30 V.
