The Timken Co., a Canton, Ohio-based provider of friction management and power transmission products and services, has launched a new packaged, industrial magnetic encoder designed to provide increased reliability and performance, especially in high-shock and vibration conditions.
The patented THS25 magnetic encoder achieves high resolutions, from 100 to 2,560 lines, with high-speed performance and position sensing. The product comes in a rugged, compact design suited for a wide range of applications, including wind power. Its standard package includes IP50 enclosure environmental protection, and an upgrade to IP66 is available.
‘Timken's new magnetic encoder technology provides consistent, reliable performance in inconsistent conditions,’ says Greg Vanbuskirk, business development manager for Timken. ‘It's ideal for applications such as wind energy, Web processing, robotics and material handling.’
