Integrated measuring system for distance
measurement type AMSA 4B

MONORAIL AMSA 4B is an integrated magneto-resistive measuring system for distance measurement based on the MONORAIL BM profile ball guideway with an analog voltage interface. These products are preferred for use in applications that make major demands on travelling speed and accuracy. No additional assembly or adjustment of the measuring system is required, which is reflected by cost savings in machine design, manufacture and servicing.

The accuracy and process reliability of the machine are also improved. The sturdy housing for the read-head has a complete wiper system consisting of longitudinal and cross wipers, which provide optimum protection for the measuring system. The AMSA 4B version has an analog voltage interface of 1 Vss for connection to all standard control systems.

Integrated digital and analog distance measuring system (with rollers or balls)

Digital and analog measuring systems enable precise linear motion and maintain the tightest tolerances
