GMIX1A is a magnetic Measuring-System, wich is suitable for different kinds of applications of mechanical engineering and constructions. An internal signal output is set and a status LED begins to flash (in order to a defined sequence), when the operation speed exceeds 25 ms/min. Further on this status LED shows the adjusted resolution with an assigned flashing sequence . In the translator box the resolution and output levels (24 V-HTL push/pull or 5 V-TTL line driver) can be adjusted with an internal DIL-switch.
