By adding a Synchronous Serial Interface (SSI) to its Micropulse Generation 7 linear position transducer line, Balluff simplifies interfacing to popular control systems. Manufacturers that use the SSI include Allen-Bradley, Delta Computer, Siemens, Bosch Rexroth, and others. The SSI-output products have features including:
- Stroke lengths from 25 mm to 7620 mm
- Pressure rated to 600 bar; ideal for use in hydraulic cylinders
- Update rates up to 5 kHz for improved dynamic performance
- User-configurable via PC/USB interface
Applications for the transducers include all types of automated machinery where a continuous, absolute position signal is required, such as plastic injection and blow molding, tire and rubber manufacturing, stamping presses, and die casting.
