Broken Tool Monitoring

WK2A, WK2B and WK2S

The WK2 monitoring system is designed to operate under the worst conditions.

Characteristics:

  • Absolutely leak proof in the most demanding environment
  • Fast and constant scanning speed
  • Sensor diameter only 22mm
  • Scanning direction right or left
  • Object, tool, and free space scanning
  • PNP outputs, wear resistant, short protected
  • NPN outputs, wear resistant, short protected
  • Inverting of outputs via DIP switch
  • Output latching until new scanning cycle

Features:

  • Triple sealed
  • The V-seal eliminates reliably any deposit between moving parts dried up coolant during production standstill does not create malfunctions
  • The chromium-plated special steel housing is wear resistant against shavings and chemicals
  • Wear resisting probe end made of carbide
  • Positioning, speed, and torque controlled drive offers a soft contact at the tool
  • No external mechanical stop
