Illustrating the various method of correct Incremental Magnetic and Absolute Encoder Mounting Configurations.
In all cases refer to relevant installation instruction and correct fit-up tolerances. The use of anti-backlash coupling for shaft to shaft coupling is advised.
Encoders are applied to measure speed and position in a wide variety of applications and are therefor available with numerous mounting styles. The mounting style should be selected carefully to best fit the application at hand.
The NEW Veeder Root VersaCount 1/16 DIN size multifunction counter is the most versatile counter on the market today. Whatever your application, timing, counting, rate measuring, position indicating, volume measurement, speed monitoring, length cutting or batch, shift, pulse or piece counting, the VersaCount is the only device you need when versatility counts.
Versatility doesn’t stop with functionality. The highest count frequency in the industry enables the VersaCount to perform in applications not previously possible with an electronic counter. What would speed be without accuracy? That’s why the VersaCount features an unprecedented prescaler accuracy to one ten thousandth. Further, automation and precision control are achieved using three presets with relay hold times programmable up to ten minutes.
Veeder Root is the first in the industry to offer a programming assistant where applications can easily be created, archived and printed using the proprietary Programming Assistant software. VersaCount XP models allow the user to easily upload programs via USB key or Ethernet connection.
Electric motors are found extensively in both the manufacturing and processing industries. Both AC and DC powered motors are used to drive pumps, fans, conveyors and a broad range of specialized equipment. There are many types of motors designed for many different applications, however all require electrical current in order to generate the magnetic fields that are necessary to create rotation. By measuring this current useful information can be made available regarding the status of the motor and the equipment that is connected to it. This may be as basic as independently verifying the run status of the motor or in conjunction with a PLC, for example, to protect a pump against dry run. Thus current may be used to both monitor and protect motors and motor-driven equipment.
