Magneto-resistive distance measuring system specially designed for applications in machine tools
SCHNEEBERGER’s AMSA 3B MONORAIL is an integrated measuring system for distance measurement for use on all protected machine tool axes with high demands on system precision. Mechanically the AMSA 3B is based on SCHNEEBERGER’s MR MONORAIL roller guide with lengths up to 6 meters. The integration of the measurement system allows very compact axes to be put together.
An analog 1Vss (200 μm signal period) interface, with different cable lengths, is available as the interface with the control system. Combined with SCHNEEBERGER’s SMEa interpolation electronics, very high-resolution and fast digital signals can be provided. Reference marks can be set at 50mm intervals or distance coded.
Different options for carriage lubrication and sealing permit the best possible degree of adaptation to application requirements. The easily interchangeable reading head is identical for all sizes.
