Speed Sensor Optimizes Main Spindle



The new WMK 3010S rotational speed sensor from AMO is designed to provide users of milling and turning machines with a better option for operation of their main spindle. Besides providing speed data, the WMK 3010S also supports the capturing of operating status data of that spindle, thus optimizing many costs related to the operation of the machine.

Available in North America through parent company HEIDENHAIN, this AMO speed sensor includes a USB interface that allows the operating status of the spindle to output to the machine control. This enables the user to record rotational speed, operating time, temperature and more. These factors help contribute to optimized performance and uptime.

The inductive, incremental scanning head on the WMK 3010S is available with a 1Vpp interface. It has a minimalist modular design, allowing this IP67-rated product to be installed in existing customer designs without significant modifications. It is available in the common industry line count increments and can be operated up to a maximum of 50,000 RPM.
