MAT PA50/20

Absolute position transducer MAT and absolute magnetic band PA50/20
MAT is an absolute position transducer for linear measures without contact with a measure range up to 10 meters: it has to be combined with the absolute magnetic band PA50/20.
Running on the band, the sensor produces a signal which, properly amplified and worked out, is changed into an absolute position signal.
Transducer MAT: the measure transducer integrates in the same device a sensor sensible to magnetic fields, an electronic signals conversion circuit and an output stage. The most important feature is that this sensor always keeps the quota, it means that is possible to move the sensor also without power supply and without loosing the quota. There are available two inputs to define the zero-setting and the direction.
The data exchanging is made through protocol SSI with format Gray or Binary.
Magnetic Band PA50/20: the band consists of a plastic-ferrite strip carried by a stainless steel band with two magnetic traces, one with alternate polesof 5 mm pitch, the other with an univocal binary.
This system is suitable for a large number of applications within industry: guides and linear transmission members, pneumatic and oil-pressure cylinders, handling systems, automatic shearers, etc.: in any situations where is necessary an absolute, accurate and repeatable measure without contact and wear-proof.
It can goes with display F1XA (reading range –99999, +999999) with interface SSI.

The F_X series are mono-bidirectional display unit with microprocessor with display, particularly suitable for the measurement of linear and angular dimensions with signals supplied by incremental transducers such as encoder and optical lines, magnetic band, proximity sensor.
Other features: input pulses correction factor, enabling of 2 relays, reset/preset of the dimension from keyboard and from terminal box. The F_X are extremely versatile and suitable to many different applications.
The following models have the RS232 or RS485 serial link MODBUS RTU.
• F1X5: mono-bidirectional display unit with microprocessor and six-digit display (reading scale -99999 +999999).
Versions: F1X5- displayed; F1X5-2 with 2 switch relay interventions; F1X5-RS232 or F1X5-RS485 with RS232 or RS485 serial output MODBUS; F1X5-2RS232 or F1X5-2RS485 with 2 relay interventions and RS232 or RS485 serial output. The version F1X5-SSI is used for absolute transducers which use an interface SSI (standard RS422): the system can be configured to accept a gray or binary format with byte numbers that can be selected between 4 and 24.
• F2X: an auxiliary display with two characters enables the guided programming of the display unit.
Versions: F2X- displayed; F2X-2 with 2 switch relay interventions; F2X-4 with 4 relay interventions; F2X-RS232, F2X-RS485 with serial output; F2X-2RS232, F2X-2RS485, with 2 relay interventions and serial output; F2X-T with analogue output; F2X-2T with 2 relay interventions and analogue output.
• A3X: programmable mono-bidirectional multifunction counter with three axes on 6-digit displays, (reading scale -99999 +999999), ideal solution for all the cases in which it is necessary to display the position on machines with three axes (honing machine, milling machine, etc.).
Versions: A3X- displayed, A3X-2 with 2 switch relay interventions per every axis, A3X-RS485 with serial output per every axis
