Capacitive Height Sensing System CHS-500S


CHS-500S Capacitive Height Sensing System

To attain high quality cutting results, a precise control of the stand-off distance between the nozzle tip and the workpiece is required. The nozzle tip stand-off can be controlled by using the CHS-500S Capacitive Height Sensing System.

The CHS-500S measures the nozzle tip stand-off distance and converts the measurement into an analog output signal. After initial calibration, the on-board 16-bit DA provides an analog output signal to tip stand-off. Calibration can be achieved by manual panel entry, PMC entry via 24 VDC I/O or PMC entry via EtherCAT.

For use with conductive materials. Non-conductive materials require a tactile adapter (TTA-3029-M8-AMX) in place of the capacitive height sensing nozzle.
