• Each channel can be programmed for use with NPN or PNP sensors
  • Operates at press speeds up to 2000 spm
  • Fast inputs able to catch events down to one millisecond
  • Ten standard die protection channel logic types, plus custom types
  • Each channel has its own channel logic timing window
  • Channels can be configured to top stop, immediate stop, or intelli-stop
  • Handles difficult situations found in the stamping environment (stuck slugs, bouncing strips, etc.)
  • Channel logic for multiple-part-out situations
  • Integrated gagging functionality allows easy use with lamination dies or other dies with sequencing requirements
  • Supports part tracking, enabling complex applications such as automatic bad part detection and rejection
  • Flexible bypassing options under supervisory control to reduce operator error and system down time
  • Integrates with the system event log to report detailed information on die protection stops
  • Real-time diagnostics include sensor status, voltage, in-window transitions, and more
  • Real-time graphical display supports “overlaying” multiple strokes, so variations between strokes can be seen
  • Supports complex servo motions when used with the 5100-amc-servo
  • Each module acts as its own sensor interface connection box, and can be mounted in any convenient location for die hookups
  • Front panel connection for up to eight sensors
  • Internal wire terminals for up to 16 hardwired sensors
  • Sensor interface provides 24 vdc @ 1 amp total
  • Supports optional Link or customer-supplied quick-connect receptacle

Why Link
