Quick Ship Industrial Encoders from Quantum Devices


Greenville, DE- Servo2Go has just added hundreds of ‘Quick Ship' Industrial Rotary and Modular Shaft Encoders to its broad range of feedback devices.

Manufactured by Quantum Devices of Barneveld, WI the new QPhaseTM Family of Encoders feature high resolution, increased frequency response and superior reliability over temperature (0 to 120 degrees C).

Incorporating Quantum's patented sensor technology, all incremental and absolute encoders set a new standard in industrial ruggedness, and are backed by a 2 year factory warranty.

Certified SIL CL 3 Encoder with CANopen Safety Interface


The proven optical absolute encoders from POSITAL's OPTOCODE series are now also available as a safety version. The new addition to its product portfolio was developed in cooperation with the FRABA group sister company VITECTOR, which specializes in safety sensors. The new encoders fulfill the requirements of IEC 61508, EN 62061 and thus comply with the new Machinery Directive. Operated with protective extra low voltage (PELV), they are suitable for use in drive technology, lift applications, mobile machines, construction machinery and machine tools.

Innovative Motion Sensors a Great Fit for Wind Turbines


FRABA’s OPTIPACT motion sensors measure velocity by calculating the rate at which an image of a moving surface travels across an optical sensor. With no contact between the sensor and the moving object, dust or surface contaminates won’t cause problems. OPTIPACT sensors provide an ideal way of determining rotor speed in wind turbines: just measure the velocity with which part of the rotor (e.g. nose cone or shaft) moves past a point on the body of the turbine. OPTIPACT motion sensors are compact, robust and ideal for primary or backup rotor speed regulation.
