MSC500 Magnetic Rotary and Linear Sensor

MSC500 Magnetic Rotary and Linear Sensor

Compact sensor, incremental, digital interface, resolution 1 micrometer with visual LED monitoring Ultra-compact magnetic sensor for machine construction that will visually tell you the reading distance is more than normal, the sensor is reading the magnetic tape or band and it is still connected to a power supply.

The SIKO magnetic sensor MSC500 constitutes a significant development over previous MagLine magnetic sensors in terms of their performance and integrated technology. The sensor includes a clever, multicolored status LED that aids in both commissioning and standard operation. The correct distance between the magnetic band or magnetic ring is can be monitored visually. If the reading distance between sensor and magnetic tape / magnetic ring is excessive, it will be indicated by the blue LED. A green LED indicates an intact power supply, while a yellow LED indicates that the encoded path information is being read correctly from the magnetic tape or the magnetic ring.

Individually programmable Using the programming tool PT5500, parameters such as resolution and pulse interval can be changed and the desired application customized. This reduces the number of versions, saves warehouse logistics costs and will shorten delivery times.
