TR-Electronic rotary encoders have been designed for the most demanding environmental conditions in automation technology form the very outset. In crane installations, mining, oil and gas production, steelworks or in wind power plants measurement and control systems must function reliably even under the most demanding environmental conditions and extreme mechanical influences such as shock and vibrations. What is important here is particularly robust design and durable technology. The proven housing system with an outer diameter of 115 mm is now available with new, extended options. The generous housing accommodates the latest rotary encoder and interface technology from TR-Electronic and protects it from external mechanical impacts thanks to its sturdy aluminium design. The large flange diameter and sturdy mounting foot can support heavy loads; even unauthorized use of the rotary encoder as a climbing aid cannot affect it. The rotary encoder's integrated precision technology is permanently protected even from increased shaft loads by particularly robust bearings in the flange.
The latest Industrial Ethernet variants use standard M12 plug connectors for the supply and bus system. These connector systems are now also available for TR-Electronic's heavy duty housing. TR thus combines standardized connection technology with a particularly robust protective housing solution. Naturally all other TR interfaces are still available with a variety of connector solutions specially adapted for demanding environmental conditions. The fieldbus cover enlarged to fit the housing diameter is always the tool of choice when laying cables directly in-situ. The options are supplemented by an optional heating element, which ensures that rotary encoders in protective housing C__115 do their job reliably and consistently even in freezing ambient temperatures.
