SMLA contactless and bearingless absolute encoder + MRA/262 segmented ring easily fit around large shafts in inaccessible mounting areas.
• Absolute encoder with segmented ring for large shaft machinery
• Simplified installation where access for mounting is difficult
• Contactless and bearingless operation
• Rugged construction and IP68 protection
• 15-bit resolution, SSI and BiSS interfaces
SMLA encoder is paired with a ring that is expressly designed and segmented into two pieces for simplified installation in large diameter shafts up to 190 mm / 7.48” where access for mounting or servicing is difficult. The pieces are joined from the sides of the shaft and then clamped together around the shaft in a very easy and quick way.
The encoder is able to provide 15-bit resolution (32,768 cpr) over the complete circumference without any loss of information at joints. Output circuits can be SSI or BiSS C-mode and they both provide alarm bits. Zero setting and counting direction input signals are provided as a standard. Cable and M12 connector outputs complement the electrical configuration.
The magnetic sensing technology allows for non-contact and frictionless measuring principle with no components subject to wear or fatigue. SMLA guarantees great resistance to dust, humidity, oil, grease, water jets and chemical agents and affords excellent durability under harsh conditions and adverse temperatures (-25°C +85°C, -13°F +185°F) thanks to selected and encapsulated electronics and its IP68 protection enclosure. This guarantees reliability over time and longer operating life.
SMLA + MRA/262 is ideally suited for installation in large shaft motors, torque motors, rotary indexing tables, robotics, textile and wood, metal & stone working machinery, packaging lines, military installations, mobile equipment, cranes, especially where mounting space is confined and hardly accessible.
