Monitoring Capability
           
   Your choices are...         
   Broken Tool Sensing       The monitor is capable of determining if the tool is broken. 
   Dull Tool Sensing       The monitor is capable of determining if the tool is dull. 
   Misplaced Work Sensing       The monitor senses whether the work piece is in place. 
   Tool Presence       The monitor measures whether the tool is mounted in the machine. 
   Tool Setting       Tool setting measures for clamping errors, thermal shifts and broken tools during rapid traverse. 
   Crash Avoidance       Crash avoidance senses if a collision is eminent and shuts off motion control if it is. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary capabilities.

Communications
           
   Your choices are...         
   RS232C / RS485       RS232C is an established standard for a serial communications protocol. RS232C is the interface that your computer uses to talk to and exchange data with your modem and other serial devices. 
   Ethernet       A local-area network (LAN) protocol developed by Xerox Corporation in cooperation with DEC and Intel in 1976. Ethernet uses a bus or star topology and supports data transfer rates of 10 Mbps. The Ethernet specification served as the basis for the IEEE 802.3 standard, which specifies the physical and lower software layers. Ethernet uses the CSMA/CD access method to handle simultaneous demands. It is one of the most widely implemented LAN standards. 
   Hard I/O       The monitor has a number of I/O points for data transfer that are hard wired. 
   PLC       A programmable logic controller (PLC) is connected to the sensor performing the monitor function. The PLC relays any tool monitoring information to the main machine controller. 
   PROFIBUS       PROFIBUS is a vendor-independent, open field bus standard used in a wide variety of manufacturing and process automation applications. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary communication protocols. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Features
           
   Your choices are...         
   Adaptive Controls       A program that allows the tool to automatically adjust to changing operating parameters such as tool wear and dullness. 
   Auto Calibration       The ability to of self-calibrate to zero and measure the gain of the tool monitor. 
   Data Logging       The monitoring system can automatically read and log operational data in real time. The log contains data such as horsepower, spindle speed and coolant flow. 
   Remote Data Retrieval       The tool monitor has the ability to retrieve any data recorded and analyze it to better optimize cutting operations. Data is retrieved by wireless, fiber optic or other means over long distances. 
   Diagnostics       A program that runs during machining operations that determines unusual operating conditions and alarms the machine controller. 
   Self-teach       The tool monitor can learn to adjust to changes in tool cutter dimensions and conditions. 
   Time Delay Trip       A time delay trip is used to delay tripping or turning off the process for a short period of time until the tool is operating in a steady state. 
   Wear Compensation       The tool monitor is capable of calculating for changes in tool wear. 
   Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary features. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
