The new SIKO MSK320 ZM magnetic sensor has a durable metallic housing. Suitable for rotary measuring tasks (such as measuring the drive shaft speed on machine tools, woodworking machines and textile machines) it also works on large-scale outdoor applications (as on forestry or stone machinery). More after the jump.
Engineers can get the new sensor is already available and test it for free by contacting SIKO.
SIKO’s MSK320 ZM magnetic sensor directly measures axle or drive shaft rpm, even in tight or contaminated spaces. The metallic housing has an IP67 rating and operates in temperatures from -40 up to +80°C. The sensor can withstand even the harshest weather conditions, including sub-zero temperatures and condensation when outside or places with high solar radiation.
Resilience for extreme versatility
SIKO sensors also operate as open systems; myriad MR320-type magnetic rings are available, to adapt to various shaft diameters. The wealth of available magnetic rings of varying diameters and pole counts underline their flexible nature; versions with programming resolutions to 16,000 pulses per rotation are available.
The sensors measure reliably even at speeds to 10,000 to 20,000 rotations/min. (depending on ring size). In addition they have:
- Verified magnetic sensor technology and a contactless wear-free measuring principle
- IP protection class: IP67; various ring diameters available
- Maximum movement speed to 25 m/sec; system accuracy to ± 0.05°
- Resolution and repeatability to ± 1 increment; ring-sensor distance to 2.0 mm
- Flexible ring sizes; with and without reference point; speeds to 10,000 to 20,000 rotations/min.
