Electronic position indicator AP10S

With interface, for direct linar length measurement

open expert video
Absolute position display with communication interface for linear or slide adjustment intuitively guides the operator to the correct machine setting when changing products or changing formats. Readability is optimized for intuitive user prompting: The backlit display clearly shows the setpoint and actual value, and the two LEDs clearly indicate the direction in which the adjustment must be made. The IO link interface enables easy and reliable integration into modular machines.

Profile AP10S:

  • Electronic position indicator with plug connection for magnetic sensor
  • Optimally readable backlit display
  • Two-line LCD for target and actual values
  • Reset, incremental measurement, offset via keyboard
  • Integrated RS485 interface, CAN bus or IO-Link as an option
  • Display accuracy up to 0.01 mm
  • Absolute function via internal backup
  • User guidance via bicolor status LEDs
  • IP53 type of protection, IP65 as an option

  • Industry 4.0 ready
