Electronic display MA508/1

Quasi-absolute, mains-independent LCD display, robust metal housing

open expert video
The MA508/1 magnetic display is the optimized successor of the MA508 magnetic display. Now, the magnetic display can be freely programmed via the integrated keyboard, for example for parameters such as resolution or offset.
The compact dimensions enable simple constructive integration even under confined installation conditions. The metal housing guarantees durability and robustness.

Profile MA508/1:

  • Display accuracy max. 0.01 mm
  • Repeat accuracy 0.01 mm
  • Low-power LCD with integrated sensor
  • Supply via integrated battery with up to 10 years of service life
  • Freely programmable directly via buttons on the device
