Z60-014 Quasi-absolute Measuring- and Display System for monitored manual adjustments of 1, 2 or 3 axes

The compact position indicator Z60-014 has a graphical LCD display which allows a comfortable and accurate reading of the actual position, target position and the difference (delta) of axes X, Y and Z on manual axis resp. format adjustments. Specific parameters such as offset, tolerance window and measurement unit (mm/inch) can be set individually for each axis. The operating mode of the display can be switched separately for each axis: actual position, target position and delta (difference between actual and target position).
A rechargeable battery cell integrated in the housing of the position indicator transforms the incremental measurement into a quasi-absolute measurement, as the current positions are permanently detected even in the de-energized state and further processed internally. 

  • Up to 3 axes at a glance during manual axis adjustment: Switchable display of actual position, target position and delta
  • Due to the internal accumulator, the actual position is detected permanently (even in de-energized condition)
  • Well legible graphical LCD display with units & symbols, e. g. directional arrows and sign for indicated positions
  • Specific parameters for each axis separately programmable, e. g. offset, tolerance window and measurement unit
  • With serial RS485 interface for PLC communication § 
  • Power supply 15 ... 30 VDC
