MR340-1 DIN Controller

MR340-1 DIN Controller

The MR340-1 DIN Controller works with any of the MR340 series fiber optic incremental encoders – rotary or linear. The Sensor is connected to the Controller via an industry-standard 62.5/125μm duplex multimode fiber optic link. The controller keeps track of position and also calculates the RPM or linear speed of the connected encoder. Both position and speed can be read via Modbus/RS485 serial interface, USB or analog output. The analog output can be configured for either ± 10V or 4-20mA output.

MR343 MRI Safe Linear Sensor

MR343 MRI Safe Linear Sensor

The MR343 series fiber optic linear position sensor is an innovative all-optical, passive design which is immune to any electro-magnetic interference such as magnetic fields, lightning and high voltages. Its non-metallic construction makes the sensor entirely MRI safe, being both immune and invisible to magnetic fields.
As an incremental system, the absolute position must be set every time the system is powered up. To automate this process, Micronor has developed a special “homing” zone left or right of the film’s active area. In operation, the mechanical system starts up in the “homing” zone and moves towards the first line in the active area. This corresponds to the reference or index position on a conventional encoder. As the sensor moves into the active area, the counter can correctly track the absolute position.
