IR01 is the under belt measuring system encompassing a double rubber wheel with integrated incremental encoder and the mounting support in the same package. Easy to install, it tracks displacements more precisely.
IR01 is the all-round wheeled encoder from Lika Electronic that is best suited for accurate length measurements in conveyor systems. It offers a complete and inexpensive assembly to easily solve your tasks in linear displacement measurements such us in steel, paper, textile, wood and packaging industries. It encompasses a double rubber wheel with integrated incremental encoder and the mounting support in a single package. Typically the wheel is mounted under the moving material (such as a conveyor belt, a reel or a roller). The support provides a slotted mounting plate and a pivoting arm fitted with springs. In this way it is easy to adjust the wheel very close to the belt and load the springs to always exert better pressure.
In addition, the arm is able to accommodate the possible upward downward movements of the belt without losing constant contact. Also the rubber wheel is designed to eliminate the slipping risks. Available in several diameters, the wheel can be locked in a fixed position or let free to move. The integrated incremental encoder provides AB0 signals with complementary signals via Push-Pull (HTL) +10÷30Vdc, Line Driver (TTL) +5Vdc ±5% and HTL/TTL compatible +5÷30Vdc universal output circuits (digital version); or sinusoidal signals via 1Vpp output circuit. Resolutions up to 5000 PPR are available (0.06 mm / 0.0024”). M12 connector and cable options are both offered.
