Use with HPRA, HPPA

TSI 2 can be DIN rail mounted within the machine control cabinet.

Use with HPMA, HPGA

TSI 3 units are DIN rail-mounted and feature an 'Easy fit' location mechanism.

Use with HPRA, HPPA

As the TSI 2 but with Solid state relay (SSR) output for easier user configuration.

TSI 2 specification

Specification 
Principal applicationHard-wired probing systems with HPRA and HPPA
MountingDIN rail mounting
Outputs

1. Probe status
2. Position confirm signals (machine ready and arm ready)
