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.
Safety, hygiene, and accuracy are critical in food and beverage production and packaging. While sensors can help to achieve the necessary level of accuracy and efficiency, their requirements must extend far beyond the traditional specs of resolution and communication interface. Fortunately, Everight offers a variety of products that meet these needs.
The LVR sensor (Linear Variable Resonance), is a new patented non-contact linear position sensor that is a potential replacement for the LVDT sensors in harsh environments.
Recently, obtaining the Inductosyn and components for maintenance has become more difficult. For decades the Inductosyn from Farrand Controls / Ruhle Companies sat near the top of the rotary sensor hierarchy. Providing sub 2 arcsec (0.5 mdeg) accuracies, it combined the robustness of a resolver with the performance of the best optical encoders. Despite its shortcomings, it found plenty of customers, from airborne infrared and radar systems, to telescopes, satellite communication antennae (SATCOM), machine tooling and low-pressure vacuum chambers.
Netzer Precision Position Sensors is pleased to introduce the VLP (Very Low Profile) line of absolute position rotary encoders for harsh environments. Designed for exposure to the extreme conditions that are prevalent in the Aerospace and Harsh Environment industries, the VLP-60 and VLP-100 encoders provide unparalleled performance while offering high levels of immunity to shocks, vibration, humidity, and extreme temperatures, and […]
