The sawing tool typically consists of a circular saw which is mounted on the carriage for vertical movement, so that, during the working stroke of the carriage. It projects through the slot above the upper surface of the workpiece support table and consequently cuts the workpiece blocked on the table, while during the return stroke of the carriage the circular saw lies in rest position below the upper surface of the workpiece support table. The return (or non-working) stroke of the carriage, with the circular saw in lowered position, is convenient because it permits the operator to move the workpiece, which has just been cut immediately into position for the next cutting stroke, thus avoiding dead time in the operating cycle of the sawing machine, and because it avoids accidents, with consequent severe injuries to the operators of the machine.
SC Module and SC Meter provides an easy-to-access interface for monitoring the electrical grounding current and shaft voltage profiles in rotating machinery. The SC meter measures peaks and averages of either the current or the voltage.
