MG50Magnescale officially launched the “MG50”, a new Fieldbus interface unit compatible with our incremental "Tough Sensor" digital gauge lineup, for open network applications. Our current Tough Sensor series of digital gauges provide high rigidity and high precision, and feature digital tolerance functions with an intuitive and simple setup in an extremely slim shape. Since the launch of the Tough Sensor, many of our customers have requested the function of transferring measurement data to a PLC and aggregated data to be calculated freely. The MG50 fieldbus interface unit aggregates measurement data to a PLC, via EtherCAT or CC-Link, with a maximum of 30 connectable gauges (EtherCAT) per transfer unit. By using a function block for each PLC (available soon), basic calculations can be performed such as maximum, minimum, thickness and so on. Furthermore, we launched our new “MT20” interpolator which is used when connecting our “DT” series (general purpose model) of digital gauges to our “MF10” counter module, thus increasing the range of our Tough Sensor lineup.
