Attention to all, for whom magnetic measurement scales are a topic!
Since some time there is the new DIN SPEC 91411 for magnetic measurement scales in design drawings.
The problem is known to many users: when it comes to measurement scales, there was no uniform terminology until now. Everyone described magnetic dimensional standards in engineering drawings differently. In the absence of uniform terminology or common drawing rules – neither for mechanical nor for magnetic parameters – misunderstandings or even errors in engineering drawings were commonplace. Manufacturers of magnets, measuring standards and sensors as well as machine or equipment manufacturers are particularly affected by this.
As a manufacturer of magnetizing equipment, ITK has actively participated in the drafting of the new DIN SPEC 91411 for the characterization of magnetic scales. ITK has now applied the new standard to the magnetizing systems belonging to the “Pole Positioner” family. The new standard serves as a basis in the programming of ITK’s circular and linear systems. By using the standardized terminology, errors in the implementation of scale drawings are avoided. In addition, the software is very user-friendly and offers an appropriate mode for setting up and operating the system. This means that nothing stands in the way of fast programming of new scales in with a variety of pole patterns and pole tracks. With the DIN SPEC 91411-compliant magnetizing systems, manufacturers of sensors and encoders obtain the desired flexibility and reliability in the generation of measuring scales.
