Part no.: MR344 Hollow Shaft Incremental Fiber Optic Encoder
• 100% passive sensing design no electronics whatsoever
• Up to 1.25" through hollow design
• Sensor can be installed in all manner of hazardous locations and potentially explosive atmospheres
• Immune to EMI and RFI
The MR341 Mini Rotary Encoder is a Size 11, small form factor incremental encoder offering resolution to 512ppr. It is inter-mountable with resolvers, synchros and conventional electronic-based encoders of the same size. The MR341 Encoder is a 100% passive sensor which operates entirely in the optical domain. The sensor provides immunity to any electro-magnetic interferences such as lightning, radiation, magnetic fields and other harsh environment conditions. The innovative design provides 100% electrical isolation as well as immunity to high voltages ideal for harsh environment applications such as feedback for welding robots, measuring anode position in smelters, and monitoring pantograph operation in electric rail applications.
As collaborative robots expand into manufacturing environments the issue of safe motion continues to be a concern. Current design approaches involve adding force sensors, torque sensors, and sometimes proximity sensors. These adders along with more complex software control algorithms mitigate most of the concerns and result in slower operation. Unfortunately, these additional sensors also add significant cost and complexity.
Capacitive rotary encoders such as those from Netzer Precision are known for their low profile, high noise immunity and excellent accuracy. As a result, they are an excellent choice for applications such as camera systems, radar, slip-rings and robotic joints. Often times in these tasks the encoder is used for velocity feedback, ensuring a smooth […]
Particle Contamination, Water Contamination and Oxidation. Any one of these nuisances can spell disaster for lube oil. Of course, you run a lab oil analysis program so you know periodically what these levels are in a machine. But what if you could monitor these parameters in real time? Osico Oil-Mon is a 4-in-1 oil quality […]
For maximum endurance and payload transportation capacity many UAV manufacturers turn to ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) powered flight. Electric propulsion has its place, but for maximum energy density batteries are not currently at the level of modern fossil fuels.
