Heavy Duty Encoders from TR Electronic

When it comes to motion and position applications, particularly in harsh environments, your encoders are subjected to extreme shock, vibrations and demanding environmental conditions. Often these harsh environments result in an increase in operating expenses from production downtime, and encoder repair or replacement. Reducing encoder failures is possible by choosing durable protective housings for compact encoders that have been designed to endure extreme environments.

Heavy duty encoders are available with extremely robust housings made of aluminum or stainless steel and can be equipped with heating and cooling options if your application demands it. Oxidation buildup and corrosion can cause rotary encoder shafts and bearings to seize up and make removal a nightmare. Our stainless steel housings offer protection in caustic environments.

Ambient temperature fluctuations as well as encoder warm-up and cool down cycles can create a vacuum effect; consequently, drawing moist air into the encoder and causing remature failure. TR has successfully developed a “Seal Pack” option that provides hermetically sealed and pressure fit protection against ingress of water, mist, rolling fluids and vapour due to changing temperature cycles.

When selecting a TR heavy-duty encoder for your application, it is important to consider the different product specifications to increase reliability and guarantee the continuing success of your industry. TR heavy-duty encoders can have different IP protection ratings, as well as different settings designed to withstand shock, vibration, and extreme temperatures. The right choice of heavy-duty encoder parameters will guarantee the best performance for your application. For example: Extreme dust loading, heat and mechanical stress found in every steel mill have a great toll on your encoders. Also the continuous cold and hot rolling mills can cause unexpected downtime with increase in operating expenses. TR Electronic robust heavy-duty encoders are failure free, and extremely reliable for speed measurement for the steel industry.
