Siko DE10 Electronic Position Indicator is a freely programmable and battery-powered position indicator. The position indicator DE04 provides maximum flexibility since the always same basic device can be parameterized to the desired spindle pitch, display accuracy, and reading position in an application-specific manner. Parameterization is conveniently performed via programming software via an external interface.
Electronic-digital position indicators of the Siko DE10 Electronic Position Indicator
The electronic digital displays of the DE range are a sensible alternative to mechanical counters in particular in cases where no suitable gear ratios are available for the mechanical versions. Because they can be programmed at will, the user can also choose to display positive and negative display values or to work in angle mode. The programming software ProTool DE is mainly of interest in special machine construction because it allows for parameterization of the electronic displays directly prior to assembly on adjustment spindles.
Electronic-digital position indicators of the AP 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.
Also possible – linear measurement with position indicators
By the combination of spindle position display AP10 or AP05, linear measurement system AP10S or AP04S, and setpoint display AP10T or AP24 you can cover all adjustment points of a machine within the framework of monitored format adjustment. The hollow shaft construction allows the spindle displays AP10 and AP05 to be attached directly to an adjustment axis. The position displays AP10S and AP04S serve as positioning systems for slide adjustments in conjunction with the linear sensor MS500H. The remote displays AP10T and AP24 can be used to specify target values for format pieces or tool changes directly on the machine module concerned.
