MPS-C series Connectable type



LONG Long stroke, up to 35m.
Easy connection, because of connector.
No air purge Unaffected by dust, oil and condensation, and so air purge is unnecessary.
Water-proof for coolant is improved because no electrical exposed part.
Against heat Since same heat expansion ratio with machine, strong to thermal expansion.
Stabel for a long time No-contact! Stable high accuracy lasted for a long time.
ABS Absolute detection is possible combining with battery backed-up encoder on the feed motor. (In case of FANUC and MITSUBISHI CNC)
CNC Connectable with various NC's(FANUC, Mitsubishi CNC, SIEMENS, Mitsubishi servo)

Scale Stroke

The stroke is value which subtracted 100mm from the sum total of the length of selected Scales.
Ex)When MPS-100CSC are 3 pieces and MPS-75CSC is 1 piece, Scale stroke is,
1000mm × 3 pieces + 750mm - 100mm = 3650mm

*2:Wiring is not included in weight.
*3: When Scale stroke length is 4m or more, ADB-20J64 or ADB-20J14 are chosen.

Mounting Example

Mounting Example

Mounting holes of pushing method

Scale is mounted using the holes of A1 to A12 in below drawing. Please prepare Tap holes at the mounted side.

Holes mounting from pattern side

Mounting tap holes of pulling method

Scale is mounted using the tap holes of D1 to D5 in below drawing. In this case, the mounting part is performed the slot machining, as shown in below figure.
