Features and applications

MPI-R10 measuring system connected to a specific sensor FC-MPI, combined with the magnetic band M-BAND-10, is a complete system for the measurement of linear and angular displacement (with a minimum radius of 65 mm).

Characterised by an extremely easy assembly, it allows precise alignment and positioning, reducing time and machining procedures to the minimum.

  • Maximum ease of assembly and disassembly operations of the device from the panel, thanks to a system with retention wing (ELESA PATENT).
  • 7-digit LCD of 12 mm height and special characters.
  • Programmable with 4 multifunction keys.
  • Values displayed in millimeters, inches or angular degrees.
  • Display of absolute or incremental mode.
  • Up to 10 programmable offset values.
  • Storage and display of 32 target positions.
  • Long-life internal lithium battery.
  • Buffered memory during battery substitution.
  • Housing for FC-MPI connector with snap-in assembly system for easy insertion and removal.

(1) Reading speed affects battery life.

(2) Resolution: the smallest variation in length that the system is able to display.

(3) Accuracy: the maximum deviation of the value measured by the system with respect to the real value.

(4) Repeatability: the degree of closeness between a measurement series of the same sample, when the individual measurements are made, leaving the measurement conditions unchanged.

Assembly instructions

  • Drill the sheet (thickness 0.7÷2 mm) according to the template dimensions.
  • Remove all drilling burrs before fitting the case.
  • Fit the lower part of the case into the housing and press until the complete snap fitting (Fig.1).

Battery replacement instructions

  • Remove the indicator from its seat, applying pressure to the retention wing bringing it to the stop with the aid of a slotted screwdriver (Fig.2).
  • Unscrew the AISI 304 stainless steel self-tapping screw with six-lobe socket for TORX®* T06 tool and remove the closing plate (Fig.3).
  • Replace the battery paying attention not to invert the polarity (see the position indicated on the cover).
  • The replacement of the battery if carried out within 10 seconds (duration of the buffer power supply) avoids the loss of the configuration parameters.
