BlueTC

The BlueTC with or without radio transmission was developed as an alternative interface to the  BlueMETER SIGMA and BlueMETER BASIC for using the BlueLEVEL and BlueLEVEL BASIC inclination measuring instruments.


It is possible to send measured data via an RS232/485 port to a printer, a PC/laptop or the WYLER software wylerSPEC, wylerDYNAM or to other software such as LabEXCEL.


Advantage compared to the BlueMETER SIGMA/BlueMETER BASIC connected to BlueLEVEL/BlueLEVEL BASIC instruments are:

  • Simple configuration; BlueTC is only an interface between instruments and PC / laptop
  • Cost effectiveness (in case of wireless data transmission)


Disadvantage compared to the BlueMETER SIGMA/BlueMETER BASIC connected to BlueLEVEL or BlueLEVEL BASIC instruments are:

  • No display of the measured values of the connected instruments [A] and [B]
  • Menu less extensive and less comfortable due to missing display

BlueTC with ZEROTRONIC sensors

Configuration with two or more BlueTCs, connected to ZEROTRONIC-sensors and to a PC / laptop whereas the BlueTC works as an interface, and with data transmission through cable: Up to a total of 64 units can be connected, whereas the HOST BlueTC, each REMOTE BlueTC and each sensor count as one unit.

 

Distance PC - BlueTC <2.5m /
Distance BlueTC - BlueTC <1000 m /
Distance BlueTC - sensors <15m

Configuration with two or more BlueTCs, connected to ZEROTRONIC sensors and to a PC / laptop whereas the BlueTC works as an interface, and with radio transmission: Up to a total of 16 wireless units can be connected via Bluetooth, whereas the HOST BlueTC and each REMOTE BlueTC count as one unit. Up to 7 sensors can be read in simultaneously.


Regarding the configuration set-up of the sensors, there is only the limitation that the total number of units connected may not exceed 64, whereas the HOST BlueTC, each REMOTE BlueTC and each sensor  count as one unit.

MACHINE TOOLS / ROTATION CHECKS

Measuring task / Goal:
A machine tool must be checked on possible geometrical deviations. The check must show up eventual rotations of the table during displacement. The measurement of geometry should be made in a quick, reliable and simple procedure ant thus with a good cost-benefit effect.

PRINTING INDUSTRY / ADJUSTMENT OF STANDS AND PRINTING CYLINDERS

Measuring task / Goal:
Each single colour unit provides horizontal and/or vertical reference faces which must be used during the manufacturing process in the production plant as well as for the adjustment of the printing line. The positions of the reference faces must be adjusted in accordance to each other, measured, and a record must be printed. The positions of the printing cylinders must be precisely aligned to each other (horizontally).

POWER SUPPLY SECTOR / ALIGNMENT OF LARGE PUMP SHAFTS

Measuring task / Goal:

  • The horizontal positions of the connecting lines between the bearing faces on the bearing ring for the stator must be checked. The flatness and the fully horizontal position of the bearing ring must be assured.
  • The pump housing, one floor below, disposing of a round reference face must also be adjusted fully horizontally

The centre points of the pump shaft and the drive shaft of the motor must be aligned to each other in order to assure that the transmission shaft flanged in between can work free of any bending moment.

MACHINE TOOLS / SPINDLE ALIGNMENT

Measuring task / Goal:
The deviation from the right angle between the two working positions „horizontal“ and „vertical“ must be determined.

 

This measurement is required during the assembly, the error correction by scraping when the unit is mounted on a temporary frame with doubtful stiffness as well as during the final inspection of the ready mounted machine tool.

 

The measuring uncertainty must not exceed two seconds of arc. Calculations involved must be possible without the aid of a computer.

ALIGNMENT OF AN INJECTION MOLDING MACHINE WITH WIRELESS INCLINATION SENSORS

Measuring task / Goal:

The customer is searching for a more efficient solution for this process during in-house commissioning as well as for the commissioning at the customers premises. If possible the adjustment should be done by one single technician. To assure that no instrument is accidentally pulled down, a wireless solution is to be favoured.
