Length measurement system LMSMA2x/3x

A space-saving and reliable complete Systems... Up to 0.008 mm/pulse for excellent measurement results Precise positioning Measure positions, speeds and travel lengths reliably and precisely, quickly mounted and adjusted The positions, speeds and travel lengths of conveyor belts, film and paper webs or cardboard packaging, for example, can be recorded safely and efficiently using the measuring systems from Wachendorff Automation. With the new LMSMA2x and LMSMA3x measuring systems, we meet the highest requirements in an ideal way:
• constant and accurate measurement results through optimal, low-slip measurement in the most varied conditions;
• resolutions from 1.0 to 0.008 mm/pulse;
• small space requirement thanks to a compact design;
• long service lifetimes thanks to the high mechanical robustness of all the components;
• fast and flexible mounting to the machine.
We have significantly optimised the adjustment possibilities of the whole system, which is based on a spring arm with a central spring. This gives you constructive and valuable benefits:
Now 36 alignment positions
The newly developed hand wheel with its 10° resolution levels allows for 36 alignment positions.
In combination with the elongated holes of the angle bracket, you get much more room for the installation.
Easily adjustable preload
With the new systems, the spring preload is adjustable in steps from 5 N to a maximum of 30 N preload.
Calibration without disassembly
The preassembled systems for installation in the machine or readjustment during commissioning remain mounted
Fixation in resting position
During machine setup or maintenance in particular, it is possible that the length measuring system is not designed to run.The LMSMA systems offer the possibility to fix the spring arm
in a resting position. The spring arm is then returned to the working position and continues to work at the previously set pressure.
