Measuring Transducer for Angle of Rotation, Rugged Design, Programmable, Ex/NEx

Measuring transmitter with contactless, capacitive sensing system for acquiring the angular position of a shaft.

  • 717-kinax-wt717_persp1_16508.jpg
  • Technical characteristics

    A load-indepent DC-signal with a range of 4 to 20 mA is read out from the measurement output. The robust housing has made this unit ideal for machines, ship building, transport, construction of vehicles and in the chemical industry.

    • Patented contactless capacitive system, wear-free
    • Measuring range, direction of rotation, characteristics, output changeover and other functions can be programmed via PC: facilitates planning and project work, short lead times, minimal inventory
    • Angle of rotation measuring range: 0°...10° to 0°...50° or 0°...50° to 0°...350°
    • With gearbox 0...20° to 0...1555 revolutions
    • Measurement output (measuring/supply circuit) utilizes 2-wire connection (4 to 20 mA signal)
    • Simulation of measured value allows to test subsequent control circuits, control loops or measuring circuits during installation
    • Display of present measurands and graphical representation on screen for longer time periods
    • Adjustment of mechanical position and fine adjustment of the analog output, zero point and span may be set independently
    • Programmable output characteristics: linear, V-characteristic or freely selectable linearization curve
    • Shaft can be turned through full, no damage occurs even if the upper limit value of the measuring range is exceeded
    • Serial interface
    • Permissible static load on the shaft: max. 1000 N (radial), max. 500 N (axial)
    • Surface mounting device in rugged housing (IP67): vibration and shock resistant
