modes: Set-Up, Inch, Single, Continuous, Bar, Timed Inch, Automatic
Single Stroke, Continuous on Demand and Maintained Continuous.
Link Black Max infrared safety light curtains are available to protect against
hazards while allowing accessibility and visibility for the operator.
Link Systems designs, develops and manufactures electronic controls, monitors,
and safety devices for the metal stamping and fabricating industry.
2500 Programmable Limit Switch
|The System 2500
provides flexibility and ease of setup for the control, sequencing, timing
and monitoring of feed line, ejection, transer and other auxiliary automation
equipment used with power presses through quick, simple keyboard programming
of up to 24 Programmable Limit Switch outputs and 8 Die Protection and automation
A non-volatile memory that stores 100 jobs provides for paperless
record keeping and recall of each job setup. Stroke, batch, part, and
quality check counters are standard on the system to give information and
control over part runs. The System 2500 can be easily interfaced
to communicated with most Servo Feeds.
||The System 1100 is a microprocessor-based
monitor that can determine, display and compare developed forces with preset
limits for machines that use large forces in the production process.
Available in either 2 or 4 channels
Use of Data Windows allow for close monitoring by not only checking absolute
peak tonnages, but also checking up to 4 additional local peaks created by
Automatic setup allows all setpoints to be calculated and set automatically
123 setups can be stored and recalled by job name or number
Both forward and reverse loads can be displayed.
|The model SS-501 is a solid state
clutch/brake control for mechanical power presses. The SS-501
Control is designed for both safety and production requirements.
It provides simple interface for presence sensing safety devices, die protection,
tonnage monitoring systems, programmable limit switches, lube systems, die
clamps and other auxiliary systems.
