Linear measurement instruments

Article-Linear measurement instruments

The Orbit ACS (Automation andSolartron_Metrology_Orbit_ACS_SI_200[1].jpg Control Systems) SI 100 is a one-channel stand-alone linear measurement unit for quick measurement and PLC output. The SI 200 comes with a probe, integral screen, and PLC output, but can also connect to an additional Orbit digital probe via T-con for a two-channel system. Formulas such as A+B and A-B are available with the two-channel configuration. The new units verify key dimensions to support quality control in electronic, semiconductor, automotive and other manufacturing applications.

Users can quickly set up the digital probe and process limits on the integral keypad and screen; no programming is required. Output to a PLC can be accomplished by several protocols including Modbus over RS232 or RS485, or RS232 output. Three lines of discrete digital output and four lines of discrete digital inputs are available.
