The BM-1600 is a time-based brake monitor that utilizes a high resolution rotary encoder and controller to measure the brake stopping time in milliseconds and also the RPM of the press. The rotary encoder is attached to the subject machine and is driven on a 1:1 ratio by the power press crankshaft. The brake stopping time of the machine will be displayed on every stop and can be easily read on the bright red light emitting diode (LED) display on the front panel of the unit. The RPM/ of the machine will be displayed during the machine cycle. BM-1600>>

PressCam8PressCam 8
PressCam 8 is a “control reliable” resolver based programmable cam switch (PLS), time-based brake monitor, die protection system, multiple counters, and much more in one package. The system contains two 16-bit computers that are configured to cross check each other and the resolver. The dual computers are interfaced with a full view 8” (203mm) diagonal LCD computer screen for viewing and programming ease. This large operator screen supplies operators and front line supervisors production data without the need of cumbersome menu and program access codes. 100 job memory. PressCam8>>



PressCam8-JuniorPressCam 8 Junior
The PressCam 8 Junior is a resolver-based press automation controller that incorporates a programmable cam limit switch (PLS), timed-based brake monitor, servo feed control, four counters, and a die protection system The PressCam 8 Junior is controlled by a 16-bit computer that constantly checks the resolver for accuracy. 100 job memory. PressCam 8 Junior>>
