- Encoder, measuring wheel & spring loaded torsion arm 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 Model TR1 Tru-Trac linear measurement solution is a versatile option for tracking velocity, position, or distance over a wide variety of surfaces. An integrated encoder, measuring wheel, and spring-loaded torsion arm in one, compact unit, the Model TR1 is easy to install. The spring-loaded torsion arm offers adjustable torsion load, allowing the Model 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. With operating speeds up to 3000 feet per minute, a wide variety of configuration options – including multiple wheel material options – and a housing made from a durable, conductive composite material that minimizes static buildup, the Model TR1 Tru-Trac is the ideal solution for countless applications.
Noise & Signal Distortion Considerations for Encoders in Motion Control Applications
To ensure clarity of signal from your encoder, and avoid excessive electrical noise, there are several options and installation considerations to take into account. Electrical noise must be mitigated, and there are several strategies to do that. The encoders’ cables are another important consideration, with cable length, termination, and connections all playing a part in keeping a signal “clean.” There are also additional methods to reduce noise. This white paper will focus on strategies and ways to reduce noise and signal distortions to ensure the signal from your encoder remains clean and uncorrupted.
The Basics Of How An Encoder Works
Encoders convert motion to an electrical signal that can be read by some type of control device in a motion control system, such as a counter or PLC. The encoder sends a feedback signal that can be used to determine position, count, speed, or direction. A control device can use this information to send a command for a particular function.
Encoders in Inhospitable Environments
Encoders are often used in harsh industrial environments. Encoders can be exposed to the same contaminants other machinery is, including: high volumes of dust, an abundance of moisture, caustic chemicals, even physical damage, where the encoder is knocked around by other equipment. For encoders used in an outdoor environment, they must be able to stand up to extreme weather conditions. In short, encoders need to be able to endure whatever the machinery they’re a part of can endure. In applications that call for frequent washdowns with caustic chemicals, the chemicals can attack the encoder’s aluminum housing and exposed parts, which causes corrosion and eventually shortens the life of the encoder.
