PERSONNEL involved in the measuring and cutting of material in the metals and wood industries can expedite such tasks using the Elgo Z16 single axis standalone linear measuring system.
Available in Australia through Treotham Trading , this battery powered unit works without any wiring and embodies a flexible magnetic tape to make angular measurements.
Available in length up to 33 metres, the product has an up/down function, pulse factor, selectable decimal point, depositable reference value, and an inch/mm switchover.
This battery powered LCD-indicator is already combined with a magnetic sensor. The system is predestined for mounting on movable slides and stop-systems.
With a good battery, the system is able to perform for 12 months in continuous operation. Its incremental measuring system 'Z16' measures movements directly, that means there are no pitch errors or measuring errors due to mechanical play.
The distance between magnetic sensor and magnetic tape may be up to 0.8mm without impairing system accuracy.
An LCD display has six digits with sign, and digit height of 8mm. Power supply is a commercial 1.5V battery and power consumption approximately 0.8mA.
Operation speed is maximum 2.5m/sec, resolution of magnetic sensor rated at 0.1mm. Black plastic panel housing has dimensions of width 70mm x height 47mm.
Rated IP40 (installed state) protection class, the Z16 has a magnetic sensor with the following technical specifications:
Length of cable: 0.1m to max 1.0m; protection class: zinc die cast housing IP67; operating temperature: +5º...+50ºC; bend radius/cable: min. 60mm; distance sensor/tape: maximum 0.8mm; and any installation position.
