Magnetic Encoders for Harsh Environment Applications
July 7, 2008
Industrial Encoder Corporation (IEC) announces that the IH103 series encoder with a Magneto Resistive sensor has been applied on drilling rigs in the Oil Field Industry. The encoder includes a cover and housing machined from Stainless Steel in order to prevent corrosive activity that occurs in extended usage in Harsh Environments. The Magneto Resistive sensor is used to provide the best performance and longest life for the encoder in this application.
The encoder will be certified for Explosion Proof applications. The encoder is compatible with Barriers known to be typically used in applications requiring protection against explosions.
IEC’s product line includes Optical and Magnetic Encoders:
Incremental and Absolute Encoders (Hollow Shaft and with Shaft)
Heavy Duty Industrial Ratings
Hollow Shaft Encoders with bores up to 65 mm.
Motor Mounting Friendly for Hollow Shaft Encoders
Competitive Advantages of IEC’s Encoders include:
Machined Mechanical Parts for structural integrity (not cast)
Superior Mechanical Assemblies tolerant of misalignments and overloading
Modern ASIC design with 100% short circuit and reverse voltage protection
IP66/67 Sealing - Stainless Steel Housing options
Unbreakable Disks or Sensor Assemblies - 300 KHZ. Frequency response
6,000 rpm standard maximum speed with higher speed as an option
IEC’s products have been used and proven extensively in Robots, Cranes, Forestry, Oil and Gas Drilling, Machining, Elevator, Factory Automation, Food Processing, Material Handling, and Energy Production applications. IEC is UL certified, and is also certified for Explosion Proof applications in Zones 1, 2 and 3.
IEC designs, manufactures, and markets Optical Encoders for demanding applications. For more information please contact Tony Petrecca, Industrial Encoder Corporation, at 888-277-6205, firstname.lastname@example.org or Jon Gum, Motion Control Research, at 435-627-1086 or email@example.com.
