Integrated distance measuring system Type AMSD 3B digital with rollers

The integrated distance measuring system allows the machine to travel the most precise path whilst adhering to the strictest tolerances

When exact linear motions are required, the profiled linear guideways used must fulfil the highest quality requirements. In addition, extremely precise distance measurement is needed. With its integrated distance measuring systems for a variety of applications, Schneeberger offers cost-optimized solutions.

Integrated measuring system for distance
measurement type AMSD 3B

MONORAIL AMSD 3B is an integrated magneto-resistive measuring system for distance measurement based on the MONORAIL MR profile guideway with an incremental, digital interface. The AMSA 3B is the starting point for this product. The profile rails are thus identical and are compatible with both AMSA 3B and AMSD 3B.

The AMSD 3B version has an incremental, digital interface and a range of reading head options that permit different resolutions and allow the system to be adapted to control systems with different input frequencies.

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
