Multi-channels monitoring for swiss type turning and transfer lines


EMO 2015 in Milano was the right occasion to introduce a new solution especially designed for Swiss-type turning machines and rotary transfer lines.
Digital Way just released a brand new version of their multi-channel monitoring system called WattPilote Rack. Multi-channel monitoring was already available in the Digital Way product line, but up to now, the available systems were limited in terms of maximum measurement range (8kW) and possible PLC interfaces (only Profibus was available).
The new generation doesn’t have these limitations anymore. Its modular design allows mixing modules rated for 1 kW to 100 kW motors in the same rack.



This new system has exactly the same monitoring capabilities as the rest of the product line: Broken tool detection, Wear estimation, Missing tool or Double-machining detection. It handles up to 120 tools per channel and can be interfaced with the machine tool PLC through various communication protocols: Profibus, Profinet, Ethernet I/P, DeviceNet, EtherCAT and many others.
