Encoder and Measuring Wheel Solution Integrated Into One Compact Unit
Spring Loaded Torsion Arm Makes Wheel Pressure Adjustments a Snap
Easily Installed in a Vertical, Horizontal or Upside Down Orientation
Operates Over a Variety of Surfaces at Speeds up to 3000 Feet per Minute
Integrated Module Simplifies Your System Design, Reducing Cost
The TR1 Tru-Trac? is a versatile solution for tracking velocity, position, or distance over a wide variety of surfaces in almost any application. An integrated encoder and spring loaded measuring wheel assembly available in one, the TR1 is both easy-to-use and compact. Its spring-loaded torsion arm offers adjustable torsion load, allowing the TR1 to be mounted in almost any orientation—even upside-down. The threaded shaft on the pivot axis is field reversible providing mounting access from either side. The TR1 housing is a durable, conductive composite material that will eliminate static build up. With operating speeds up to 3000 feet per minute and a wide variety of configuration options, it’s easy to see the TR1 Tru-Trac? is the ideal solution for countless applications.
The Basics Of How An Encoder Works
Before you can fully understand how an encoder works, you should first understand what an encoder is and what it does. An encoder is a sensing device that provides feedback from the physical world-- it converts motion to an electrical signal which can be read by some type of control device, such as a counter or PLC. The control device can then use that signal to control a conditional event, such as activating a print head to create a mark at a specific location.
There are several variables to consider when choosing an encoder. The most common are mounting style, resolution, output type, frequency response, accuracy, and electrical connections. Environment also plays a role: specifically, encoders must withstand a range of conditions such as moisture and dust that can seep into internal optics and electronics. Sealed encoders are available to address this. Encoders are also available that address other environmental conditions, including exposure to corrosive and caustic chemicals and ambient temperatures that reach up to 120° C.
