AMO has announced the WMK 3010S rotational speed sensor.
The WMK 3010S offers users of milling and turning machines a new option for operation of their main spindle. Besides providing speed data, the WMK 3010S supports the capturing of operating status data of that spindle, helping to support the optimization of many costs related to the operation of the machine.
Available in North America through parent company Heidenhain, the WMK 3010S includes a USB interface which allows the operating status of the spindle to output to the machine control. This enables the user to record rotational speed, operating time, temperature and more.
The rugged, inductive, incremental scanning head on the WMK 3010S is available with a 1Vpp interface. It has a minimalist modular design, allowing this IP67-rated product to be installed in existing customer designs without significant modifications. It is available in the common industry line count increments and can be operated up to a max of 50,000 rpm.
