The new WMK 3010S rotational speed sensor from AMO is now available, and provides users of milling and turning machines a better option for operation of their main spindle. Besides providing speed data, the WMK 3010S also supports the capturing of operating status data of that spindle, thus optimizing many costs related to the operation of the machine.
Available in North America through parent company HEIDENHAIN, this new AMO speed sensor includes a USB interface which allows the operating status of the spindle to output to the machine control. This lets users record rotational speed, operating time, temperature and more.
The rugged, inductive, incremental scanning head on the WMK 3010S is available with a 1-Vpp interface. It has a minimalist modular design, allowing this IP67-rated product to be installed in existing designs without significant modifications. It’s available in the common industry line count increments and can be operated up to a max of 50,000 rpm.
