The Montronix power sensor PS-200-DGM measures the input of effective electrical power of spindle and axle drives with the highest possible resolution. The power signal provided is perfectly suited for process monitoring when combined with a Montronix SPECTRATM -series process monitoring system.
The PS200-DGM can be used with direct current motors as well as with one- or three-phase AC motors. Via current and voltage, the PS200-DGM determines the input of effective power and creates a corresponding analog output signal. A multitude of amplification and filter settings are available to optimally adapt the output signal to the respective drive and process. In combination with a Montronix SPECTRATM-series process monitoring system, they can be individually set for each tool.
The PS200-DGM thus offers a robust solution for monitoring tool breakage, wear and missing tools independent of the control system being used.
Monitoring of feeder and spindle drives
Detection of broken tools
Detection of tool wear
Detection of missing tools
Detection of first cuts/gates
Used in machining and transfer centers, with lathes, custom machines, and for montoring of all kinds of drives
