Siko AP10T Setpoint Display with bus interface, for format part or tool change. Setpoint display with communication interface visualizes instructions for the operator during product change or format changes. Readability is optimized for intuitive user prompting: The red/green LEDs indicate whether a format part change is required. With the help of the backlit display, designations or setpoints and actual value can be clearly displayed. The operator confirms the changeover using an acknowledgment button.
This means that faulty machine settings with the setpoint display AP10T can be avoided in the future, making flexible production machines more process-reliable.
Electronic-digital position indicators of the Siko AP10T Setpoint Display range with a bus interface
The electronic position indicators from the AP range also have a bus interface. In a bus-controlled operation, target values and actual values can be exchanged between the individual absolute position indicators and an upstream control unit.
Fieldbus and Ethernet communication for positioning displays of the AP range
Besides the RS485 and CAN bus interfaces, additional interfaces can be realized by means of a protocol converter such as Profibus, Profinet, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, CC-Link, and DeviceNet. Functional modules, which facilitate the configuration of the electronic displays in the programming environment of your control are available for selected interfaces and controllers.
Electronic position indicators are focused on the user
This monitored spindle adjustment offers significantly better process reliability and shortens setup times for format adjustment. At the same time, this increases machine efficiency and the viability of the production equipment. The target value is displayed directly on the axle and the correct actual value entered manually is reported back, making incorrectly set stops and tool positions a thing of the past. The overall unit is not approved until all spindle positions have been reported as correct. As a result, there is no longer any scrappage or damaged tools due to incorrectly set adjustable axles.
