The PSE 30_/32_-14 positioning system, an intelligent, compact, complete solution for positioning auxiliary and positioning axes, consists of an EC motor, gear power amplifier, control electronics, absolute measuring system and ten different bus interfaces. The integrated absolute measuring system eliminates the need for a time-consuming reference run. Connecting to a bus system simplifies the wiring. A hollow shaft with adjustable collar makes assembly quite simple. The positioning system is especially suitable for automatically setting tools, stops or spindles for wood-processing equipment, packing lines, printing equipment, filling units and other special machines.
