Product Details Supplier Info More products

Kistler has introduced the Maxymos TL (Top Level) monitoring system for demanding process monitoring and product testing applications. It features eight XY channels and is compatible with a wide range of sensor types and communication protocols.

The Maxymos TL features more powerful evaluation techniques, a larger selection of connectable sensors, a wide range of fieldbus types, expandability up to eight pairs of XY channels and a 10.4in (26.4cm) high-resolution colour touchscreen display.

The system is designed to support all common mounting configurations, including desktop, wall and front-panel mounting.

Key information

  • The Maxymos TL offers a fast data acquisition rate of 20kHz and cycle times down to 0.05sec.
  • It is compatible with a wide range of force, torque, pressure, position and angle sensors.
  • Communication is possible with a number of PLC types using Profibus DP, Ethernet/IP, Profinet and Ethercat connectivity.
  • The system accepts signal input from sources including strain gauges, piezoelectric and potentiometer sensors, ±10V, LVDT, incremental and SSI encoders.
  • It analyses the relationship between any two inputs or one input against time and can be expanded to monitor up to eight XY pairs using one master display.
  • Data curves consisting of up to 8,000 value pairs for each cycle can be stored on a shared folder on a server or local USB memory in csv, xml or pdf file formats with either all or only NOK curves being selected.
  • The system can detect tool breakage using gradient monitoring and responds in real time.
  • A short evaluation time enables the monitoring of up to 20 parts per second, and both X and Y thresholds can generate switching signals for control purposes in real time.
  • The system’s built-in memory stores up to 128 measurement programs each with 10 evaluation objects ensuring flexibility in terms of evaluation criteria and variety of parts.
  • A curve memory for NOK diagnosis provides access to the last 500 curves for analysis using a filter and bundle function.
