Product Launch:New Fieldbus interface unit

On June 2, 2014, Magnescale (President Toru Fujimori) officially launched the “MG50”, a new Fieldbus interface unit compatible with our Tough Sensor lineup, for open network applications. Our current “Tough Sensor” series digital gauges (released March, 2013) provide high rigidity and high precision, and feature digital tolerance functions with intuitive and simple setup in an extremely slim shape. Since the launch of the “Tough Sensor”, many of our customers have requested the function of transferring measurement data to a PLC and aggregated data to be calculated freely. The “MG50” fieldbus interface unit aggregates measurement data to a PLC, via EtherCAT or CC-Link, with a maximum of 30 connectable gauges (EtherCAT) per transfer unit. By using a function block for each PLC (available soon), basic calculations can be performed such as maximum, minimum, thickness and so on. Furthermore, we launched our new “MT20” interpolator which is used when connecting our “DT” series (general purpose model) gauges to our “MF10” counter module, thus increasing the range of our Tough Sensor lineup.
