i-TWK. ELEKTRONIK- MAGNOSENS Magnetostrictive Displacement Transducers Model series MPK / MSK with EtherCAT interface ■ Model MPK: Profile version ■ Model MSK: Rod version ■ Measuring strokes from 25 to 7600 mm ■ Contactless, robust system ■ Resolution up to 1 pm ■ Up to 5 positions measurable simultaneously ■ Speed signal ■ Transmission rate up to 100 MBit/s ■ Parameterisable via the bus ■ Protection types up to IP 67 ■ Operating temperature range -40°C ... +75°C ■ Rod version pressure stability up to 350 bar Structure and operation The displacement transducers operate according to the principle of run time measurement between two points of a magnetostrictive waveguide. One point is determined by a moveable position ring, whose distance from the null point corresponds to the section to be measured. The run time of an emitted impulse is directly proportionate to this section. Conversion to a displacement signal takes place in the downstream electronics. The waveguide is housed in a pressure-resistant stainless steel tube or extruded profile. To the rear of this is a die-cast aluminium housing containing the electronics in SMD technology. In the rod version, the position magnet is located in a ring, which is guided over the rod without contact. In the profile version, it is located either in a slider, which is linked to the moving part of the machine via a ball joint, or it moves as a liftable position magnet, without wear, over the profile. Standard measuring strokes □ Up to 1000 mm in 50 mm steps □ Up to 5000 mm in 250 mm steps (profile version: MPK) □ Up to 7600 mm in 250 mm steps (rod version: MSK) Characteristics of the EtherCAT interface The MXK magnetostrictive displacement transducers meet all EtherCAT requirements and can be connected directly to the field bus. Their measured data are converted to displacement-proportionate, bus-capable output signals in the sensor and are transmitted directly to the control system. In addition to useful data transmission, software integrated into the sensor supports extensive monitoring and diagnostic functions, which can be configured via the enclosed XML file during installation. Use of the CANopen over EtherCAT message enables parameters and diagnostic data to be handled as usual in the case of CANopen. The most important key data of the displacement sensors with EtherCAT interface include: Sensor output signals: - 4-byte position data - 4-byte speed data - 2-byte status and error messages Selectable parameters: - Measuring direction: Forwards/backwards - Resolution - Extrapolation Address setting: Manual setting of the node address and the baud rate is omitted. The network subscribers only have to be selected and arranged according to their sequence in the EtherCAT master. XML file: The XML file for integrating the sensor into the EtherCAT master system and the user manual in PDF format are contained in the enclosed CD-ROM.
