The magnetic length measuring system Z10 is a combination of an indicator and a magnet sensor, which is integrated in the display unit and already electrically connected. Therefore no wirings or connections are necessary with the installation. In standard variant, an external battery case with a 1.5 Volt battery feeds the unit with power. The battery case is connected by a 10 cm long double-core cable to the indicator unit. Other 1.5 V - Battery sizes can be realized on request. The stan-dard system is supplied in principle as open PCB variant (without housings), in order to make possible an individual adaptation to diverse machine types. On demand, a cus-tomized housing and/or front design can be developed. A special version number (SN number) for a definitely identification or possible re-orders, will be created (see Type designation) then.
