Integrated measuring system for absolute distance measurement type AMSABS 3B

The product AMSABS 3B for roller guideways now combines proven magneto-resistive measuring technology with an absolute digital interface.

With the proven advantages of AMS products like

  • Safe magneto-resistive sensing
  • One-piece lengths up to 6 m
  • One reading head for all sizes
  • Complete interchangeability of rails and reading heads

We have added the following additional features to simplify the operation of distance measuring systems in industrial environments.

  • An absolute digital interface
  • Display of operating conditions
  • Configuration and diagnosis options via a serial link
  • Increased operational reliability attained by processing valid information

MONORAIL AMSABS
MONORAIL AMSABS

The AMSABS features an absolute interface for connection to SSI, SSI+SinCos and all Fanuc controllers. The Siemens DRIVE CLiQ®* and Mitsubishi interface have recently been added. The Siemens DRIVE CliQ interface is certified in accordance with SIL 1.
(*DRIVE-CLiQ is a protected trade mark of Siemens)

The MONORAIL AMS 3B, for example, is an integrated magneto-resistive distance measuring system based on the MONORAIL MR roller profile guideway. This ensures compact axes with distance measurement and guidance that is especially suitable for use in machine tool applications. No additional assembly or adjustment of the measuring system is required by the operator; In fact, it delivers cost savings in the design, manufacture, and maintenance of the equipment. And, by using the AMS 3B, accuracy and process reliability are improved

The integrated AMS distance measuring system from SCHNEEBERGER can be perfectly integrated into MONORAIL guideways – both roller guideways and ball guideways – and ensures exact travel distances with tolerances of ±5 µm/m.
