The “Airbag” for Machine Tools
The advanced interface adds to the “Black Box” features of the basic interface the relays output that can be directly connected to the machine PLC to protect machine against:
They are the major cause of spindle failures, even if not catastrophic.
- Process Overloads
They could damage the machine as well as reduce the quality of the machined parts.
Configuration Example on Machine Tool
With the advanced interface up to 3 relay alarms can be sent to PLC. One of the alarms is linked to collision events while the other two are linked to RMS vibration velocity thresholds exceeded during working process.
Digital input is available to activate the system only during working process.
The configuration and retrieving of registered data in sensor memory is done through USB connection via PC with dedicated software.
SeTAC can memorize up to 12.000 events categorized in terms of type, value and events time. The Black Box functionality, therefore, is maintained.
A standard M12-8 poles extension cable is used to connect the sensor to the interface.
