Compact Machine Monitoring System

Marposs Corp. offers its Brankamp CMS-02 stand-alone system for collision monitoring and crash damage mitigation in machine tools. The system employs a ceramic strain sensor to detect irregularities in the production process by measuring elastic deformation in the range of 0.1 microns, and both slow and dynamically increasing forces which have damage potential. It then reacts extremely fast - in the range of 1 millisecond - by sending a stop signal to E-STOP helping to alleviate or even eliminate machine crashes that can result in high repair costs and long down times.

As compared to previous Brankamp (CMS-1) offerings, the CMS-2 is compact, single channel unit. It has 16 bits resolution, 25 kHz sampling rate, three operation modes and three limits per mode (warning, soft and hard stop outputs limits), stop-event data recording and signal values log file. Visualization of the data, analysis and statistics, as well as the HMI, is realized by connecting an Ethernet cable to a Windows-based industrial PC unit or the newest IPC4 dedicated monitor.

The system is easy to install and can be retrofitted to existing machines. It supports several communication paths such as discrete I/Os, Profibus-DP and Profinet. Operators of all skill levels can benefit from it immediately and without having to attend complex training courses.

Additionally, the system can be expanded to work in conjunction with the Genior Modular monitoring solution, achieving both collision detection and process monitoring simultaneously and visualizing the processes in parallel.
