MS 15

Overview

  • Small dimensions
  • System resolution: 2 µm - 0.05 µm
  • Display of the signal quality directly at the scanning head via 3-coloured LED function
  • Easy mounting without additional test box
  • Easy mounting as a result of large mounting tolerances
  • High insensitivity to contamination by use of an extensive singlefield scanning principle 
  • Output signals: TTL, sinus 1 Vpp
  • High traversing speed 
  • Reference mark (accurate and repeatable from both traversing directions)
    Position selectable by customer
  • Integrated subdividing electronics in the encoder head: for up to times 200 interpolation (before quadrature)
  • Max. measuring length: 20 000 mm
  • Two independent switch signals (optical) for individual special functions

Accessories

  • PWT 100 PA2

    Even though the MS 25 linear encoders allow large mechanical mounting tolerances, it is recommended to control the function of counting signals and reference impulse. The signals can be controlled directly via the integrated LED function-control or connected to an oscilloscope and checked for conformity with signal specifications. The last mentioned method requires some effort. The PWT 100 is a testing device for checking the function and adjustment of RSF Elektronik encoders. At encoders with pin assignment according to RSF standard (compare page 05) the pinout adapter PA2 must be used additionally. At alternative pin assignments other pinout adapters could be necessary. Thanks to its compact dimensions and robust design, the PWT 100 is ideal for mobile use. A 4.3-inch touchscreen provides for display and operation.

    Available functions
    The performance range of the PWT 100 can be expanded by firmware update. Appropriate firmware files that can be imported to the PWT 100 through a memory card (not included in delivery) will be made available at  www.heidenhain.de.
