High precision gap monitoring in plant and machinery
Micro-Epsilon: With the eddyNCDT 3060, Micro-Epsilon has developed a powerful displacement measuring system based on the eddy current principle, which combines precision, speed and temperature stability in a unique way. These characteristics are complemented with maximum ease of use and an excellent price/performance ratio.
Due to its robust design and high measurement accuracy, the eddyNCDT 3060 is used to monitor the lubricating gap and thermal expansion, as well as to determine shaft movement and radial run out of machine parts and drive components. Factory-calibrated for either ferromagnetic or non-ferromagnetic materials, the inductive displacement measuring system consists of a compact controller, a sensor and a cable. With more than 400 compatible sensor models, high speed and smart signal processing, the eddyNCDT 3060 product series from Micro-Epsilon defines a new performance class in inductive displacement measurement.
The powerful eddyNCDT 3060 eddy current displacement measuring system is ideal for fast, non-contact displacement measurements onto metallic targets. As sensor and controller are actively temperature-compensated, very high measurement accuracies down to the micrometer range can be achieved even in fluctuating temperatures. The sensors are designed for ambient temperatures up to a maximum of +200 °C and an ambient pressure up to 20 bar. The measurements are performed at a frequency response up to 20kHz. The compact controller design as well as the fieldbus connection enable easy integration into machines and systems.
Another particularity is the distance-independent multi-point calibration feature. With the DT3061 controller model, 5-point linearization on site is possible which even increases the measurement accuracy again. Furthermore, the DT3061 offers switching outputs and temperature outputs and allows the storage of multiple characteristic curves. Parameter set up is performed via a modern, user-friendly web interface that is accessed via an Ethernet interface.
