The “Black Box” for Machine Tools

The SeTAC Basic kit is the ideal, simple solution to monitor and record all significant vibrations and collision events on machine tool during its entire life.
Able to store up to 12.000 events within the internal memory, perfectly categorized in terms of type, value and event time, the SeTAC Basic is perfect for:

  • Checking the correct utilization of the machine
    Assuring that no excessive vibration level or collisions are present during the working process.
  • Optimizing the spindle maintenance
    By monitoring the total spindle exposure to vibrations, SeTAC calculates the actual spindle residual life, granting therefore that spindle overhaul is performed at the right time.

Where P are Dynamic Loads:
SeTAC, by direct measuring actual dynamic loads on spindle, ensures optimization of maintenance plan.

Configuration Example on Machine Tool

With the basic interface, SeTAC works as a “Black Box” independent from the machine tool electronics.

The configuration and the retrieving of the registered data in the sensor memory is done via PC through USB connection with dedicated software.

A standard M12-8 poles extension cable is used to connect the sensor to the interface.
