Elesa presents DD52R-E-RF, a wireless positioning system, networked to UCRF control unit via radio frequency (RF), and designed for an efficient manual spindle positioning.
Positioning system with PLC control which avoids production issues
It consists of UC-RF control unit and, up to 36 electronic position indicators DD52R-E-RF (Elesa Patent). Most often, machine setup is performed manually by means of traditional mechanical indicators coupled with handwheels or crank handles, following a specific list of set-up parameters. The new electronic position indicators DD52R-E-RF are networked to UCRF control unit via radio frequency (RF). This system is particularly suitable for applications that require frequent format changes, facilitating the correct adjustment of the target/current position of the machine parts, also representing a safety system. PLC control does not allow the machine to start the production cycle, thus avoiding production issues.
